REVIEW: The Prophecy by Petra Landon

Bewitching…

What a bewitching paranormal story this turned out to be..this new to me author is a very accomplished storyteller… creating a wonderfully described alternative universe inhabited by a multitude of mythical and mystical beings ……

There are so many interesting characters residing in this book; agents for good and evil and at the heart is Tasia a courageous and gifted young wizard who is forced to hide her prestigious magical talents from those who would wish to manipulate them…. The shifters are a sexy bunch in particular Raoul, the Alpha Protector so strong and enigmatic… I am a romantic at heart and sincerely hope love will eventually be in the air between him and Tasia, the chemistry is certainly there but only time will tell..and then there is a special place in my heart for Hawk who is the first of the pack to meet Tasia..

I really was entranced by this book but in the interests of ethical feedback I did find a couple of detractions. …firstly the narrative follows events from both Tasia’s and Raoul’s worlds and at times the switch between the two concurrent timelines mid chapter was confusing and in my opinion affected the pace of the storytelling..in addition there were a couple of places in the book where there was a jump in the action which I thought led to a disjointed timeline …

War is declared..lines are being drawn and our indomitable and powerful heroine has just started out on her journey… I can honestly say that I loved this thrilling, action packed and original book with it’s fantastical cast and I look forward to reading more by this author and more in this series…….This book was reviewed for Summer’s Eve Reads.
