Editorial Reviews

Review

"A great first book for those who likes stories like Enders Game, but only deadlier." - Penny For My Thoughts Book Blog

"The pacing and plot of the novel was very well done. There was plenty of action and it really kept my attention throughout!" - Texas Book Nook


"This is a highly entertaining YA post apocalyptic sci fi book.  The world is described vividly.  The characters are well developed, and the book transitions smoothly between them.  It is a fascinating adventure that is well paced. " - Us Girls and a Book

"There are several things to note about The Proving. One is that it's a young adult read, offering a myriad of characters and an absorbing setting reminiscent of The 5th Wave. Think War of the Worlds or The White Mountains, but where the tripods have won ... The Proving provides a gripping, involving scenario that offers a number twists and turns (wormholes, a pilgrimage to New Earth, a sense of loss, hope, and struggle; all wound into teen angst) and demands of its readers a willingness to perceive the flexibility in its characters. Only a few other notable sci-fi readers for this age range charges its protagonists with coming-of-age tests similar to The Proving (such was the scenario in The White Mountains, in which three teens undertake the monumental task of changing their alien-infested world.)" - The Midwest Book Review

Holy great characterization Batman! I seriously loved the way that Ken Brosky brought his characters to life. They were so real and so fun to read about. Real life problems thrown in with some Sci-Fi and "out there". I think all in all it was a great balance. - The Indie Express

"Not for the faint of heart. I liked the Ken Brosky brought us a darker side of Dystopian. The world he has created is very vivid and dark. " - The Steamy Side Book Blog
