Jack Staples and the City of Shadows by Mark Batterson, Joel N. Clark

Book Description

January 1, 2015 8 - 12
  The Accuser is closing in. Just as Jack and his friend Alexia discover what it means to be the Chosen Ones, they each face the test of a lifetime. For Jack it is a question of trust; for Alexia, of loyalty. Everything rests on their making the right choices, and on the completion of their missions. The Accuser is determined they will fail, and that they will either join him or be destroyed. It will take all the Author’s forces, the special gifts they each have, and the help of their friends Arthur and Mrs. Dumphrey to overcome. But when the enemy makes a key move, and an important quest proves difficult, the prophecy that they will both destroy and save the world seems further from coming true than ever before.

    My review: Jack Staples and the City of Shadows by Mark Batterson, Joel N. Clark
    4 STARS
    This is the second book of the series.  There is at least one more book in the series.  It is a drama, lots of action, fight between the Assassins and Author. Lots of fighting.  There is a prophecy about 2 children will help the winning side.
    Jack and Alexia are the children of the prophecy.  They don't understand a lot of what is going on. Jack sees his mothers death and does not know where his brother and dad is. Jack has got the power to jump time.
    Alexia was orphaned at 5 years old.  We learn more about her past and family.  She has the ability to climb anything she also makes friends of animals.  Alexia gets caught by the assassins.
    It is a good story but does get confused sometimes with all the time jumping.  You can see how easy it is to make wrong choices by making small bad choices.
    I want to read the next book in this series.
    I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and David C. Cook.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of Jack Staples and the City of Shadows.
