The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone

I love it when I come across a book for young teens that really excites me in such a way that it goes simply beyond reading an action adventure book. In The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone by talented authors Bill Muir and Alex Kendrick (Fireproof, Courageous), the reader is truly in for an unforgettable experience that goes beyond your typical book. This takes the reader not only into a great story but utilizes the advancements in QR technology codes that are scattered throughout the book to link them up to video clips from the movie due out soon. This makes the adventure all the more real because you no longer have to imagine whats happening at different parts of the story, but you can actually catch glimpses into the movie while reading the book. It's like truly getting the best of both worlds, movie and book quite literally rolled into one.

The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone introduces us to the main character, Billy Stone who is the son of an archaeologist Dr. Michael Stone who has spent his entire life searching for the lost medallion that holds unlimited power to whomever possesses the item. Following a series of clues left behind from Billy's mother who was a descendant of the line of Kings that originally owned the medallion at one point, it was buried and no one has ever found it until now. Billy is excited to show his father the medallion so that their relationship can be restored since he has been so consumed with his search and has left his son as merely an afterthought.

But like all good action adventures, it wouldn't be complete without a villain, and none is greater than Mr. Cobb, a wealthy man who has slowly been buying up all rights on the island that the Stones live on. Now they are forcing the expedition for the search of the medallion to be shut down. When Mr. Cobb learns that Billy has discovered the medallion, he uses the love of his father to draw him into the open in hopes of gaining possession of the medallion for his own greed. Only Billy doesn't realize that the holder of the medallion simply has to make a wish and things begin to happen but not like he expected. It is here that the adventure takes an unexpected turn and one you'll have to find out about by picking up this book.

I received The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone by Bill Muir and Alex Kendrick compliments of B and H Publishing Group for Kids and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is such a great book not just for young teens but I even enjoyed this one and can't wait for the DVD release later in August at your local retailer. This did come to theaters in March of 2013 but most missed it like myself. Now you can gain a deeper appreciation for the story by picking this wonderful hardcover book up for your teen. It even contains some great color stills from the movie in the center of the book. I hands down rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars.
