Like Twin Peaks? Then buy Mark Frost’s new book, The Paladin Prophesy!
I was lucky enough to get Mark Frost’s new book The Paladin Prophecy the day before it was officially released, thanks to the magic of Amazon. I had preordered it months ago, because I’ve been a long time fan of Mr. Frost’s work, starting way back those many moons ago when he worked on a show called The Six Million Dollar Man. I was a fetus at the time, but I knew good writing when I heard it (through my mother’s belly). (Kidding.)
He also worked on another show you may have heard of… Twin Peaks, the groundbreaking series that made the incredibly provocative shows of today possible. If you are a regular reader of ‘Ye Ol’ Blog, you know I’m kind of a fan of Twin Peaks (you know, the same way most of us are “kind of fans” of breathing).
And speaking of Twin Peaks, there’s more than a touch of that show’s dark mysticism in The Paladin Prophecy. You see, there are forces that have been waging war for millennia, and we are introduced to this war through Will West, a young man who is very very talented.
This is a young adult novel the same way the works of Roald Dahl were for kids, or the books by J.K. Rowling… which is to say, it’s not. It’s a good read for all ages, 8 to eighty, and it’s a real page turner. It’s also got lots of heart, as Will works through what is happening to him with help from his Dad’s List of Rules to Live By, which Mark has conveniently enumerated at the end of the book (and these rules are very good advise, as well)
Any more details would spoil a good read, so I will stop there. Do yourself a favor, and pick up The Paladin Prophecy, which has already been optioned for a film series. And then, upon reading, wait impatiently for book two!
I know I will…
The Paladin Prophesy is available through Amazon and wherever fine books are sold. Which, these days, is mostly Amazon…
