Will West is playing a dangerous game. Months after uncovering the sinister Paladin Prophecy plot, Will continues to work with the mastermind behind the project—none other than his own grandfather, Franklin Greenwood. Will cooperates in order to keep his friends safe. But are they really secure in the hands of a madman? Under constant surveillance, Will and his friends secretly devise a plan to defeat Franklin Greenwood and his Knights of the Charlemagne. The team must enter the Never-Was and find an elusive group of supernatural beings called the Hierarchy. But as the battle approaches, the alliance uncovers old secrets that threaten to tear them apart. Can they protect Earth from the demons beyond? Or will a rogue player destroy them and the world they live in? Thrilling mystery and electrifying suspense abound in Mark Frost’s action-packed Paladin Prophecy series, which is compelling to the very last page.

Will has discovered that his grandfather, Franklin Greenwood, is the key to everything that has been going on in The Paladin Prophecy and Alliance. It turns out that the school was started by Franklin's father, on property he bought from the Cornish family-- property which sits on top of a hidden city where supernatural forces dwell and try to influence things in our world. At first, Will tries to play along with his grandfather, but when he is betrayed, he, Ajay and Elise go through the portal with Coach Jericho. There, they fight the protectors of Earth who use any number of evil (but exciting) creatures against them. Luckily, Ajay has filled his backpack with "explosives, a few shrapnel bombs, some tear gas, and a few that throw out a weaponized spray of hydrochloric acid"! Eventually, the group finds Dave, who has been missing since the second book, but will they be able to figure out how to keep the world sage from the Knights of Charlemagne? And can Will be reunited with his family?
Good Points
The characters really make this series for me. Coach Jericho (who turns out to have other talents as well!) is the best fictional coach ever, and Ajay's voice is terrific. The grandfather is oily and evil, and Will is just trying to do the best he can.

Like the other two books in the series, this is jam packed with action, explosions, and some great writing. Frost can throw a well turned phrase into a paragraph with the same ease that Ajay can lob explosives at demon snake kings. Readers of Gilman and Horowitz's spy books, as well as those who like science fiction like MacHale's Sylo series or Kincaid's Insignia books will find this book to be a fast-paced but intelligent romp.

Plus, I think that Will's Rule #13 might be my new motto:
Read books to get smarter.
Reader people to become wiser.
