    This book blew my mind! It is truly amazing and I plan on reading it again and again. I read and bought it as a paperback but I plan on buying it as a nook book too so that I can have it with me always. If you like fantasy and adventure, you will love this book, I promise.

    Inferior to Others in its Genre

    Comparable to other series such as Lord of the Rings and Eragon, but not nearly as good. That being said, it is a fun read with imaginative ideas, and has elements that really do shine. Unfortunately, the series deteriorates as it goes on - the first book is definitely the best.

    AWESOME! WOOH!

    Child of the Dark Prophecy is an outstanding book. It is great for its adventure, and it makes you, the reader, think. This book is a fantastic read, and will keep you going until the end of the trilogy! Like all of T.A. Barron's books, this one is very creative. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to indulge themselves in fantasy and adventure! It is pure genius! You'll never find a book like this so go on and don't be afraid to read it! Child of the Dark Prophecy will make you thirsty for the rest of the trilogy, and more T.A. Barron books!

    Read this as a child

    I read this book several years ago as a middle schooler. Overall i would say that it is a good story. It falls along the classic fantasy epic series. My only real complaint is that it is an easy read (which isnt my thing). This is a good book for children between 4th-8th grade in my oppinion.

    "The Great Tree of Avalon: Child of the Dark Prophecy" Review

    "The Great Tree of Avalon: Child of the Dark Prophecy" by T.A. Barron is a very well written and interesting science fiction novel. This novel tells the story of four characters: Scree the eagleman, Tamwyn the human, Briana the elf, and Ellie, the priestess. All of them are on a journey to restore peace in their homeland, Avalon. They must defeat the wizard (who's name is unknown) who is trying to lead Avalon with his evil powers. On their journey they face many different challenges but always find a way to get through them. The four characters learn what true friendship means, how to love and lose, and work together. The positives of this book, is the plot the author put in was suspenseful and full of action that you were able to picture in your head. Another positive was the characters were new, different, and had a mix of personalities. Some negatives of the book was at times, it tended to switch from one character's thoughts, to another character's thoughts and you end up confused and wondering which character you are reading about. Also, the author set up the book as if you were supposed to know all about Avalon, and the different places within it, but you don't. An example is in the beginning the novel states: "Long ago in Fireroot there was a mother and a son..." but you don't know where Fireroot is or what it is. The writing style of the author is a little harder and complex to read. T.A. Barron used third person omniscient narrative which is knowing what all characters are thinking/doing. The author used long, complex sentences that were sometimes hard to understand. However, T.A. Barron used sensory details of smell and touch which made the multiple settings of the book vividly pictured in your mind. Also, the tone of the book seemed more loose and casual making you feel comfortable about the writing. The word choice of the author was longer words that the reader may not have heard of. Other similar novels/short stories are "The Great Tree" by T.A. Barron. It is said to be a "must read" and very interesting. "Number The Stars" by T.A. Barron is the second book of the "Great Tree" series, and is exciting, thrilling, and the characters are even better than the first novel. I recommend "The Great Tree of Avalon" because of the vivid pictures that are painted in your mind when the author talks about the settings and characters. The novel has an interesting twist to it, and is different than many other novels.
