Gr 8 Up—Alliance is the second installment in Frost's action-packed series. While it is possible to enjoy without having read The Paladin Prophecy (Random House, 2012), events proceed fairly quickly, so readers may miss elements of the backstory. In this sequel, Will West and his roommates continue to uncover the evil doings of the Knights of Charlemagne, learning more about their history and finding even more secrets hidden at the Center. The Knights seem to anticipate every move Will and his friends make; could they have a traitor in their midst? Frost's novel has action and suspense mixed with aliens and genetically modified humans, so it will appeal to science fiction fans. There are several unresolved plot points which presumably will be tied up as the series continues. There is plenty of action, but lengthy explanations occasionally drag down the pacing. Purchase where the first book is popular or where there is a strong demand for sci-fi and mystery.—Saleena L. Davidson, South Brunswick Public Library, Monmouth Junction, NJ

Now, it's SOOOO over the top at time I was rolling my eyes, but I actually like that part of this series. I mean some of the things they talk about, you know no ordinary teenager would even think of...but this group isn't ordinary. And the ultimate betrayal hurts...ugh..I'm still mad. There is a love triangle, its last about four pages and Will does pine over these two girls but it's not the center of the story.
THAT CLIFFHANGER!!! I was not expecting that AT ALL!!! And I'm like dangling here...waiting for the next book..not knowing when that is.
I recommended these books to my cousins daughter. She's an extreme book nerd and I know she will enjoy these books. I can't wait for book 3.
Clearly the author is a talented and skilled writer with the ability to create great mental images and I commend him on this. What I miss is the thoroughness and completeness that the characters and the plot deserve. It seems that the series was written in bits and pieces here and there, more like a sideline rather than a full on project from beginning to end.
I'm going to wait before purchasing the next book, in fact I may not read it at all after reading all the reviews. Sorry publisher you lost me. Rewrite and try again.
Despite that, it's still a great read, and has all the mystery and lovable characters, as well as some new ones that are not so lovable, to look forward to. I won't give anything away, but things get pretty interesting between a few of the characters, which I honestly did not see coming.
