A Prophecy Prediction

Written by Susan Marston

How do you know that a new trilogy is off to a promising start? When you are reading it aloud and by page thirty-one, one of your listeners predicts a long, painful wait for books two and three. The book in question, The Vengekeep Prophecies by Brian Farrey, is our February 2013 ME selection. Lovable scamps fill this funny, fast-paced, and original tale—an engaging read from start to finish.

Brian Farrey’s contributions to the JLG list do not begin and end with The Vengekeep Prophecies, Brian is also the acquiring editor for Flux, the YA imprint at Llewellyn Worldwide, which is a great source of selections for our PBH list (Chasing AllieCat, Faking Faith, In Too Deep).
