Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Having superhuman abilities is something any human would love to possess, especially a thirteen year old. Carroll does an excellent job of presenting an action packed series with two teen brothers, the sons of Quantum, and their discovery of their superhuman powers. Colin and Danny are put in a position to re-establish a superhuman race. In book three, The Reckoning, Colin's mission is to stop Max and the Sakkarran's from figuring out how to use a power-damping machine that could kill super-humans as well as innocent people. Colin is then approached by the Trutopians, a group who wants to help humans bring about world peace and defeat the Sakkarran's. The Trutopians have been tracking Colin in an effort to bring them on their side. The Trutopians want to help keep the super-humans secret, but Colin isn't sure that is what they are all about. Meanwhile, Danny and Renata are with Max at the Sakkaran fortress where they have joined the following but aren't sure they will be fighting on the right side. Danny has foreseen the future and fears that if he wears the mechanical arm that Max has created for him, the Quantum Prophecy will come to pass and billions will die in the upcoming war. Two brothers fighting on opposite sides of the war between saving the planet and saving themselves from extinction must also battle their own fears as well as find their place in the war that could potentially destroy human kind. Carroll unravels the mystery of each character a little piece at a time creating a page turning trilogy of deceit, power struggles and the age of discovery for young teens that are learning the wicked ways of the world in addition to how far their superhuman powers will take them. This is an excellent book for teenage boys but girls will love it too. Parents should be advised that this book does contain some strong language. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard

    Second book

    I just completed reading the first quanum prophecy and am not pleased to see that there is no second book in the store, you can't just go from reading the first book to reading the third. Please fix this soon.

    ?

    This is an extremely good book. The action kept me entertained along with the strong storyline. Im glad to see even more development in these amazing characters. I only have one pet peeve about this book... the ending. They left the reader with a major cliffhanger, AND there isn't anymore books to this series, only prequels. But overall this is a very good read and I strongly encourage anyone who likes action based stories to pick up the final book in the quantum prophecy series.

    I thought this book was pretty good, It had alot of action and always kept you on the edge, i would recommend it to anyone interested. The whole thing with book 1 going to 3, If you read book 1 you won't even notice any gaps.

    Okay now the third book is on here, and that's great, but where is the second one? You can't go from 1 to 3.

    check it!

    It is a good book but you can't buy the second for the nook. Also the ending really leaves you hanging and there isn't another series that takes over. Which does hurt it overall.
