Shelves: fantasy
I liked the first two books in the Paladin Prophecy well enough, but the conclusion was very weak. Rogue was anticlimactic, incomplete, and shallow. There was little character development of Will West and his intrepid friends, but off they went into another dimensional world to battle an inconceivable alien threat. Despite non-stop action there, it was boring and I really did not care who won. The final battle seems like the most inconsequential of all in the series, and the real enemy, the evil ...more

Okay, so, um, what happened? The series ended like that? There was so many things left unsolved!

Brooke has betrayed them. All along she had been working with the Knights of Charlemagne. Now Will is working for Franklin Greenwood, his grandfather. If he doesn’t do what he says, his friends are dead. But aren’t they dead anyways? Will and his friends hatch a plan to escape from Franklin and the Knights. In escaping they’ll set out to save the world from the monsters from the Never-Was, by entering

Ok here goes.

Rogue finishes off the YA trilogy Frost began which combines bits of James Bond Alex Rider , and the supernatural. The premise follows the set YA (chosen heroes tasked with saving world) trope but it manages to keep things fresh (at least for me) by including the supernatural elements. If you thought that the mind-reading, force walls and scream-attacks would cease after the middle slump, you'd be wrong. In fact, the supernatural hijacks the entire series.

Given how much I liked the first to books of this series, I really don't know what to say other than 'not what I was expecting'. To be completely honest this book confused the heck out of me for a number of reasons. In the first few chapters we were thrown around the timeline without any clear indicators as to what's going on. And speaking of being thrown around, we also jump from POV to POV really awkwardly. I loved Will in the previous books, but in Rogue I found myself becoming increasingly ...more

Oh my goodness that was BAD!

Of course the action was OK, but not particularly frightening, engaging, thrilling, or otherwise of interest. Actually, action-wise it felt a lot like a Saturday morning cartoon... not all that much deeper than "Thundar the Barbarian" (Remember him? *smile*)

The biggest disappointment was the writing, itself. This feels VERY much like a 1st draft or 2nd draft. It's just clunky, all cheap tricks, and no real danger. I mean, how many "Oh by the way, I have just the skill

Rogue by Mark Frost was an amazing thriller, and a great third to the series. The last book ended on a cliffhanger so I already was waiting for this book, and he did very well with it. Will and his friends besides the betrayer were captured by Will’s crazy uncle who is working with the Ancients from the Never-Was to take over the world. Will is going along with his uncle to protect his friends, but during this time, they plan and execute their plan to launch themselves into the Never-Was. There ...more

I am honestly this close to crying right now. I believe that the first time I read this, I wasn't approaching it with an open mind and so many things just didn't make sense. But now, I notice so, so much at the core of everything about Rogue and the Paladin Prophecy series as a whole.

At it's core, the series is truly about friendship and building your own family, and I just love it so much. I could never see myself as a student at the Center, but fitting into the group is a whole different

If you've just finished book 1 or 2 and this is you looking for a sign that this book series is not worth finishing - this is your sign. Maybe I just don't like this writing style but you can tell the author is used to writing scripts. All the emotion is lacking, there's no paragraph where Will explores his feelings of betrayal, longing to see Dave again, or reflection on his friends at all. just action action action. It's not my style, and if you're like me and hoped it would get better it ...more

I skimmed a lot. I liked the first book, the second not quite as much, and the third was mostly to complete the series. I wanted to like it more, but I felt like it didn't connect well with everything else. It was just a lot of strange, fantasy action with no real plot driving it. It was weird. Like I said, I skimmed a bunch, mostly to get to the end. I didn't feel like a lot happened in the book. Just getting to the end...

It was almost non - stop action and it was really good. I love how smart all the characters are. Ajay had a sudden moment that was a bit odd and the ending could have explained a bit more about how the hierarchy works but other than that it was really good.

Throughout the book Mark Frost highlights a set of rules one of which states, “Dad’s Rules For Living; Rule #5: Trust No one.” This quote reels the reader into reading the book because it implies that someone is on the run and in danger and they cannot trust anyone. Rogue, the third and final installment of The Paladin Prophecy, written by Mark Frost, is a part of a trilogy that follows Will West from his hometown in California, to his new school, The Center, in Michigan. At The Center, he meets ...more

In “Rogue” the third book in the thrilling and imaginative “Paladin Prophecy” Franklin Greenwood, Will’s grandfather has not only coerced his cooperation in his project to create a master race of humans, but is determined that he will follow in his footsteps revealing the technology and the Knights agreement with the aliens in Never-Was. Playing a dangerous game with his psychotic grandfather Will has him divulge the secret of the “Carver” opening a portal for he, his friends and Coach Jericho ...more

This final outing of the Paladin Prophecy series ultimately falls flat. With the build-up of the first two books, I felt like so much more could have been done with the ending. It was almost like Frost got tired of writing it out, and he kind of decided just to get the story over with, content to leave much of the open-endedness of the story to fend for itself.

The group of friends, led by Will, make a plan to escape travel into the Never-Was to find their lost angel buddy, Dave, who has the

A final push to the suspenseful end, all bets are off. This is the final book in the Paladin Prophecy by Mark Frost, the title is Rouge. Rouge and the rest of The Paladin Prophecy feels shallow like a demo or a teaser to a movie. Mark Frost use a couple of elements to encapsulate the reader and never let them go. The first element that Mark uses is the continuity suspense. The suspense that lures the reader and dangles him right above the answer to the problems that have arose and, then leaves ...more

This series started off strong. It was awesome in book one. Book two was less. Not bad, but less overall. The spy in their midst and all was so cliche. Then comes the third one.

What was that flashback that was never fleshed out and wasn't even explained until the bow was being tied in the wrap up? Huh? Flashbacks are supposed to be integral to the story or what's the point?

And don't create a love interest without fleshing it out. The second book had Will being torn between two hot girls, then

I think this book deserves 3.5 stars. It was enjoyable, but for the last book in a series, it has way too many loose ends not tied up by the end. I kind of hope the series gets another book just to tie up those loose ends, although I am kind of tired of the series by now and don't know if that many pages would be needed for closure. I feel like there should have been maybe an extra thirty pages or so in this book to tie up the loose ends. I don't know what Mark Frost was thinking leaving things ...more

I really wanted to like this book, and this series. And overall it was okay. It was interesting and engaging, but in the end, it feels unfinished. I feel that there are still so many unanswered questions, storylines left dangling, and characters left kind of blowing in the wind.

Will and his friends save Dave, destroy the device that the Makers are creating to use to enter our world... and then what? What happens to his grandfather? Where is his father? What is the hierarchy? Is there a limit to

Disappointing.

Considering it's taken me 4? years to find and read this I think I have every right to give it two stars. The only reason it's not 1 star is the existence of Elise and Ajay and the development of their powers. It felt creative and unique, if only the rest of the book could be described that way.

Will is insanely over-powered, as he has been since the first book. A Gary Sue through and through.

And as for the plot? Absolutely nothing is cleared or explained in depth. Sure, they may

It is such a shame that the series ended with this book. It is my observation that this is the kind of thing one gets when it is authored by a screenwriter. Lots and lots of filler and unimportant side story. This had so much potential but despite being filled with adventure after adventure it was kind of rout, a disorderly retreat from the main point of the story. We had a conspiracy, a family drama, genetic testing in secrecy, secret societies, alien nations, advanced technology and this book ...more

An incredible series in many ways. The universe is really interesting, and I would have loved to see more of it, but there's still things that could be improved.
- The ending felt terribly rushed. I still have waaaaaay too many questions.
- What happened to the taxi driver from the first book? To Will's parents? And to those teachers we were introduced to in the first books?
- Where did Will's grandfather go? Is this REALLY over?
- You know that feeling when a grown-up tries a bit too hard to

Honestly, I struggled to get through this. The adventure should have been exciting, but the main characters were overpowered, discovering new powers as they needed them, and it got frustrating and annoying. They became less and less sympathetic and the tension in the story eroded as it became clear there was no way they could lose. They philosophized just enough that I wanted to jump in and correct their musings with other points of view and things to consider but, of course, that wasn't ...more

3.8 stars. A bit of a perplexing read, in the sense that I thought books 1&2 were pretty good, but book 3 degenerated into one long journey with a high scare factor but with the roommates surfacing a just as high number of new powers. This book did not live up to the series and for me, was slightly salvaged by the funny lines which I somehow get a kick out of. Not continuing the series even if Mark Frost is planning to.

Definitely my favorite book of the series. I loved the first part of the first book, but then it got a tiny bit dull, and it finally got amazing here. One of my favorite parts of the series is Will's Dad's Rules for Living, and I love how Will starts writing his own. Dave is probably my favorite character. Followed by Will. Honestly, the book couldn't have ended any better. It was the perfect ending.

(2.5/5 stars) I wasn't overly impressed with the third book of this series. It started really thrilling with the third book and I think has gotten more boring as each book has progressed. The majority of the book is spent in the never-was and I thought that was just really boring as a whole. Overall I wasn't a huge fan. I would suggest to read if you've already read the first two books in the series. Otherwise there are better books.
