Description

A flood of two-hundred-year-old memories from a past life knocks boy-genius Tris right off his stool at the quiz show he was winning. Then a letter arrives from a fifty-year-old time capsule that sends him on a quest to find a book of wisdom his karmic ancestors have been compiling for centuries. Really? Sure, he's smarter than all the adults around him, but how's he supposed to navigate an interstate scavenger hunt and elude a group of fanatic lowlifes? Tris has to grow into someone beyond his years to get the job done. He learns the hard way that the smartest boy in the world...isn't.

Advance Praise

“Well, if it isn’t a book in the ordinary sense of the word, what is it? An experience? Yes, that’s closer. Who can write such stuff and get away with it? Verlin Darrow can...and did. I can’t recommend this book more highly. I love it.” Richard House, MD, author of Between Now and When

"The story has great pace, fun characters who you care about, plenty of twists, narrative, and personality especially with all of the psychology and spiritual references. Many good zingers, taut scenes, and punchy, believable dialogue. Grabbed and held my interest." C.I. Dennis, author of The Vince Tanzi series

Featured Reviews

First of all, I'd like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. Prodigy Quest by Verlin Darrow, is about a genious ten-year-old boy named Tris Healey. He and his therapist Marc Dalcour go on a quest to find a wisdom book written by the previous encarnations of Tris. All this while being chased by a religious group that wants the book for themselves. Prodigy Quest is, in my opinion, a very interesting book. There is depth in the characters, and the plot is quite entertaining. Also, the book gives very helpful advise about challenges that we might encounter in our lives. So, I would recommend you this book specially if you like mystery books and speculative fiction.

thank you netgalley for providing me with this eARC in exchange for an honest review. just- wow. the kid is hella smart and he f-cking owns that crap. anyone who questions him often gets hit with the you're-talking-to-the-smartest-boy-in-the-world face and that's the end of it. but let's be honest; if any of us spoke to our parents (biological or not), we'd be six feet under by now. i don't know about you but if i dared yell at one of my parents to shut up in public, that's the last time humanity will ever see me. overall good book it's just the annoying protagonist, who is way way way smarter than me, pissing me off 🔪🙂
