When lacrosse star Micah Spearman moved to the quiet little town of Seven Springs, he never expected to become such a significant part of his lacrosse team, his group of friends, or of the battle raging just beyond human reach. With a gift to see into the spiritual dimension, Micah learns he is part of a prophecy and must lead an army of guardians against legions of demons, all while trying to live a normal teenage life.

Navigating through high school can be a daunting task. When Micah finds himself falling in love with his friend Stephanie, he must be careful not to disrupt their group of friends—or attract attention from the demons that watch his every move. But high school will not be the biggest survival challenge he faces. Micah and friends soon find their world expanding far beyond, as Micah discovers his true purpose.

As the battle rages to find the Sword of Malachi, the young freshman finds himself falling deeper into a world of unknowns. Can Micah find the sword before all is lost? Will Stephanie give into her feelings for Micah? In Micah, the Sword of Malachi, you too will fall under the charm and the mysteries of Seven Springs.

Micah Spearman recently moved to the quiet town of Seven Springs, where he joins the lacrosse team, makes new friends and leanrs he’s part of an ancient prophecy. He has to lead an army of guaridans to battle against demons…while trying to stay on top of homework, of course.

I really liked Micah. He’s down to earth mùost of the time, but can be a little bit of a dreamer too. He’s strong and intelligent, brave and willing ot put others first. He has his flaws too, and actq like a typical teenager sometimes, but still I found him likeable and relatable.

The plot had many twists and turns that kept me entertained throughout. The start was a little slow, but once we got past that, I really enjoyed the flow of the story, and the pacing. I also liked the romance subplot, and how it wasn’t the focus of the book but still added an extra layer to the characters.

If you like fantasy for young adults, I would recommend Micah.
