The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone by Bill Muir and Alex Kendrick

Leah Courtney
The Lost Medallion: The Adventures of Billy Stone is a children's/young adult adventure story. It is also a movie available on DVD.

The Lost Medallion is a fast-paced adventure story taking place between the present day and back in time on a native island. It is the story of Billy Stone- the son of an archaeologist who has lost respect among his peers- and his friend Allie- and orphan who is running away. The two are pulled into the past while searching for a medallion that Billy's father has been looking for for years. As the two fight evil natives and make new friends in the past, they struggle to retrieve the lost medallion. They also learn that they have love and significance in Christ.

This was interesting and fast-moving. I really liked the pictures from the movie in the middle of the book. And throughout the book are QR codes that show clips from the movie when scanned. The adventure and occasional violence make it a better choice for older kids- tweens or teens, but the reading level is not difficult, so it's also a good choice for reluctant readers. There is a very good spiritual lesson behind the exciting story. It's not preachy, but it is an obvious message that kids can pick up easily.

I enjoyed this one and look forward to passing it on to my kids. I'd like to see the movie also. I give this one 4 stars and a PG rating (for some action and violence).

ABOUT THE BOOK

Archaeologist Dr. Michael Stone looked for the lost medallion his entire life, and now his son Billy has taken up the search. Amazingly, the medallion ends up in Billy's hands and a spontaneous wish in a precarious situation takes Billy and his best friend Allie, back 200 years to what they realize is a very different Aumakua Island. When Billy and his friends are not jumping off waterfalls, avoiding animal traps, crossing the ocean, sneaking through caves or escaping a prison they're facing their nemesis Cobra, who wants nothing more than for them all to disappear. With no other way to get home, and the well being of the entire island resting on his shoulders, Billy must discover the key to reclaiming the medallion and its tremendous power. One way or another, this adventure will change Billy, and life on the island, forever. Best-selling author and film director Alex Kendrick (The Love Dare, Courageous) and Youth for Christ veteran Bill Muir bring us this exciting novelization of The Lost Medallion movie.
