Jack Staples and the City of Shadows By Mark Batterson

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.

I had a hard time getting into this but once I got midway in to it I started to enjoy it.
It was slow at first but it would be a great read for a young adult.
There were some words I was not sure what they were or what they meant, I had to look up a few of them.
I would have to say this book was a 3.5 star book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.


  1. Just ordered this from for my 12 year old son and am hoping he will enjoy it! Blessings!

  2. Thanks for your honest review! This is one I'm not interested in.
