Publisher's Summary

"Billy was only thirteen years old the first time he died." And with those words the internationally best-selling saga of Billy Jones begins with Billy: Messenger of Powers.

Billy, like many of us, leads what he believes is a fairly normal life: trying to get through school, trying to deal with his first crush, and trying to avoid the bullies who seem intent on trying to prove he can be flushed down a toilet. But all that changes (or at least some of it) when Billy discovers that Powers walk among us. These Powers (what you or I would call witches or warlocks) have divided into two camps: the Dawnwalkers, dedicated to the protection of humanity and the secrecy of the world of the Powers; and the Darksiders, who want nothing more or less than complete control of the world and the enslavement of all humanity.

For years the Darksiders and Dawnwalkers have lived in a state of uneasy truce: ever since the last War of the Powers, when the evil Darksider Wolfen was defeated and banished, cast out of the world of the Powers and ordered never to return. But now there are whispers. There are stirrings. Portents. Wolfen has returned. The Darksiders are on the rise. And Billy is the only one who can save the world.

Critic Reviews

"Billy: Messenger of Powers is a fascinating, fun read. It kept me captivated, in suspense, and laughing. Highly recommended!" (James Dashner, New York Times best-selling author of The Maze Runner)

a good listen in between books

this is a good book to listen to if you between books and just want a break, easy to follow and not over stimulating.
i like young adult books but this felt a little to young for me.
