If you liked Blessed Child by Ted Dekker, than you are sure to like The Prodigy.
When a single mother and her young son begin travelling across the country, they leave a trail of miracles in their wake. The boy stops a tornado in its path and preforms other various miracles, though he says after every one that he didn't do anything.
Enter the opposition. There always has to be a villain who wants to boy for his own. A radio talk host trying to make it big sees an opportunity in the boy and takes him and his mother into his care. Of course, the man turns out to be possessed by a demon.
The characters are just okay, which is typical of Alton. At least he restrained himself from having a romantic subplot. Basically, this plot just didn't hit me well, mostly because it kept reminding me of Blessed Child. This idea was original once, not any more. I think this book should have gone unwritten.
