    1. I stumbled upon Mr. Vander Ark in the deep bowels of Reddit, in a request to help as an advanced reader for a yet unreleased novel of his. Suffice it to say, after reading this early copy, I needed more. I Googled the man's name, found his profile, and snatched up whatever novels of his that were available for Kindle. The Brandywine Prophet was the first recommended to me, by both the author himself and the overwhelming positive response it has received from its readerbase. I was warned that it [...]


    2. Review first appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy for reviewJake Vander Ark's latest novel in his Blank Canvas Series, The Brandywine Prophet, is the first adult novel I've read by him. Eye-opening, occasionally unnerving, and with a disturbingly intriguing protagonist, Vander Ark's latest is an exploration of the dangers of creativity and the human existence. Written in a near-omniscient style, yet maintaining William, the protagonist, as the main focus of the novel, The Brand [...]


    3. This book took me on the most twisted and insane journey I've ever been on while reading a bookd I loved every second of it! This story was constantly making me question things not only in the book, but in my own world as well. When I finished this book, I was literally speechless--something that doesn't happen to me often. My brain was still struggling to comprehend what had happened. Vander Ark never fails to have an unexpected (but perfectly executed) ending, and that is one of the things tha [...]


    4. Incredibly well written book that seems to be, at its core, about people trying to get what they believe they deserve and being careless about the feelings of those around them in their attempts to get it. The highlight of this book is the relationships between characters because they're complex and gritty.


    5. This book was harder for me to get into. Once I did I had a hard time putting it down. The characters were all dark to me except Chase. It made the story sad and almost like the characters were helpless. Great book though! Now I need to read a lighter story! Lol


    6. This novel is truly amazing! It has a well thought out storyline that has left me wanting to read even more! Definitely something that I would read again and again.



    7. Where should I begin?I finished reading this several days ago, but I’m still thinking about it. I don’t know if a book review on amazon or can really do it justice. I feel like it’s one of those stories that should be reviewed in a literary magazine or a well-respected blog. While I was reading it, and after, I felt like starting a book club just so I’d have someone to talk to about it. The characters are enigmatic. And they keep surprising you. Just when you think you have one figured [...]


    8. I received this book through a First Reads giveaway. (5, 6, 7, 8) Disintegrating lies, disintegrating lives. Madness simmers beneath the manicured lawns of white picket Brandywine. William Carmel, a middle-aged father and husband whose creativity was fueled and later subdued by a drug-filled youth, hears the voice of God and is divinely inspired to build an amphitheater in suburban Michigan. Is he truly hearing the voice of God, has his ambitious madness overtaken him, or is his auditory vision [...]


    9. Feb 7, 2014 UPDATEGAAAAAH. I still want to read this one. I really miss reading Jake Vander Ark books. Like seriously now ;=;FYI: Will probably end up rereading the other two again at this rate. GAAAAAAAAHASDFGHJKL.


    10. Amazing. "The Brandywine Prophet" is breath-takingly beautiful. This novel has definitely kept me up into the darkest hours of the night. Simply and utterly amazing!
