“The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms… is a girl with yellow eyes.
Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope…
Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.
Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.”
What captured me the most about this book is the great plot. It had a nice fantasy world building to it that is drew me in like a fly to a bright light. The beginning of the plot began with a girl, a warrior, strong, capable, and bitter. I like that all of these elements worked well with Kira’s life. She is so busy helping others that she fails to take care of herself. Kira sacrifices everything for her loyalty to the prince after a war breaks out. What she discovers about herself, left my mind reeling and really waning more.
The characters in the book all play an important role in Kira’s life and the future of the kingdom. Each character had secrets, lies, and keys to unlock what lies ahead. I really loved getting to know each character through Kira’s eyes. She assessed everyone inside out, questioning every question, every motive. She has such a touch shell that she never gives anyone a second thought…which brings me to her love life…
Because of her tough exterior Kira’s never allows herself to love. There is not really a love yet, but a nice slow-building friendship that allows Kira to feel safe. She can relax around him, not feel the need to be tough, she can be….well she can be a normal girl.
Prophecy is a pleasurable, rich fantasy that is hugely entertainingly. Every facet of information, creates a vivid and beautiful world for the reader to dive into. The source of the story, the prophecy wields great information that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. Fulfilling and thrilling, Prophecy is crafted to be wondrous!
I give it 5 BITES!
