"Let's try this way," said Will, pointing to the right. "Run."
The Paladin Prophecy by Mark Frost p. 299
Will is on the run, literally, from the very beginning of this book. Just a regular day becomes something more when Will is chased by black sedans and courted by an exclusive, mysterious academy. I'm not very far along yet, reading time has been in short supply, but hoping to finish this week.
Will West is careful to live life under the radar. At his parents' insistence, he's made sure to get mediocre grades and to stay in the middle of the pack on his cross-country team. Then Will slips up, accidentally scoring off the charts on a nationwide exam.
Now Will is being courted by an exclusive prep school . . . and is being followed by men driving black sedans. When Will suddenly loses his parents, he must flee to the school. There he begins to explore all that he's capable of--physical and mental feats that should be impossible--and learns that his abilities are connected to a struggle between titanic forces that has lasted for millennia.
Co-creator of the groundbreaking television series Twin Peaks, Mark Frost brings his unique vision to this sophisticated adventure, which combines mystery, heart-pounding action, and the supernatural
