Probably the best part about Journey is the extremely original prologue. I can't compare it to any other prologue I've ever read. And I consider most prologues to be typical.
However, the body of the book was suffering for Hunt's original spin. It was almost like she wrote the book for the prologue.
The plot is about Manasseh and Ephraim living in Egypt. The book is based upon the verse "the younger shall be greater than the older". This idea is interesting, but I found it to be forced. The romantic subplot does nothing to help the plot. Neither do the robotic characters and the near-death escapades.
The end of the book is amateurish, causing everything to turn out right. It was also lacking Hunt's usual professional plot structure. In my opinion, this book could have gone unwritten.
