Book Review: The Prophet of Yonwood by Jeanne DuPrau

The Prophet of Yonwoodtakes place in the time before the City of Ember even existed. The world is facing wars and imminent destruction, when a young girl visits the town of Yonwood. A respected woman in the community has a vision predicting the destruction of the world.

I thought this prequel was disjointed and simply strange. It didn't seem to have a cohesive storyline and wasn't as well-crafted as her other two books set in this world (see reviews here and here). I was actually pretty disappointed.

s-factor: none

(that I remember)

v-factor: ->

Some frightening events.

Overall rating: ***
