Book Description

Being a teenager is tough, especially when you have to pretend to be something you’re not, and you’re in love with someone you shouldn’t. 115 years ago, a small planet called Arcadia was invaded by a vicious alien race and nearly destroyed. Cut off from their resources, the Arcadians turned to Earth for help. A group of Arcadian explorers discovered a Prophecy that claimed their salvation lay in the hands of two children from Earth. To ensure their safety, the Arcadian Council sent their most gifted youngsters to Earth to act as protectors. Samantha is one of them.

To succeed in her mission she must learn to control her Arcadian powers and keep her true identity from her best friend, and the girl she swore to protect, Alexia. But Samantha will soon realize that nothing is as it seems. Someone is trying to prevent the Prophecy from taking place and the prophecy boy hasn't been found yet. There is also a new drug circulating at school that is turning students into freakishly strong menaces.

To make matters worse, distractions keep getting in her way. Such as her love/hate relationship with her “cousin” Matthew. Or her confused feelings toward popular and mysterious Julian. She wants nothing more than to be free to live her life. But the survival of Arcadia depends on her and her friends. Free will is not an option.

*Note from the author: Due to strong language and mature content this book is recommended to readers 17+.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Soars does a tremendous job at weaving sci-fi into our modern world and I had a hard time putting the book (my iTouch) down." Jen Lemons, author of the Jax Chronicles series.

"Perfectly paced and amazingly addicting."
Emma Faragher, author of the Trix SinClara series.

"This could easily be the next big bestseller in the YA genre and it fully deserves to be." Sharon Stevenson, author of the Gallows series.

About the Author

M. H. Soars always knew creative arts were her calling but not in a million years she thought she would become an author. With a background in fashion design she thought she would follow that path. But one day, out of the blue, she had an idea for a book. One page turned into ten pages, ten pages turned into a hundred, and before she knew, her first novel, The Prophecy of Arcadia, was born. M. H. Soars currently resides in Florida with her husband and baby daughter. She is currently working on two projects: the Arcadian Wars series and the Love Me, I'm Famous series. The Arcadian Wars series is YA Paranormal Romance. It follows the life of a group of teens who possess incredible powers and have a very important mission: save their planet and in the process, save Earth too. The Love Me, I'm Famous series is a NA Contemporary Romance series and each book will be a standalone focused on different characters. As the name of the series suggests, at least one of the characters in each book will be somewhat famous. The first book is slated to be published later this year. To learn more about M. H. Soars and her projects visit her website and sign up for her newsletter. http://www.mhsoars.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Go buy NOW! May 29, 2014
Format:Paperback
***I received a free copy of the book in exchange for a review***

I give it a solid 4.5 Lemons

Here are my thoughts:

Sorry but I’m not going to restate the synopsis, let’s get to the review.

First off, I absolutely loved this book! Who doesn’t love a good old-fashion alien prophecy involving hot aliens with kick butt powers coming to fruition on our lovely earth? Soars does a tremendous job at weaving sci-fi into our modern world and I had a hard time putting the book (my iTouch) down. Thanks for making me stay up late several nights, Soars, thanks.

The story is told through the three main characters POV’s, Alexia, Sam, and Matthew. I enjoyed being in each of their heads as they were all likable but I had a strong fondness for Sam. Of the three I felt she was the most flawed which added great depth to her as a person and with her white hair, sapphire eyes, and powers, she came off as the ultimate badass. Plus she has uber-powerful, hottie, Matthew gushing over her. There were so many times I wanted to be her. Don’t get me wrong, Alexia and Matthew were great, but at times Alexia’s constant sweetness and boyfriend obsession became too much and I felt myself craving some action. It wasn’t until she discovered her powers that she really got interesting.

The supporting cast was awesome. I haven’t liked an ensemble so much since Harry Potter. Soars does a fantastic job at keeping everyone fun, relevant, and true to their own identity. I never got overwhelmed, as often happens with such a large cast, and they were all different enough to keep it interesting. I’m really excited to see how everyone’s juicy relationships and shady agendas unfold in the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome YA Alien story!!! July 5, 2014
By Amanda
Format:Kindle Edition
Frigging Alien Awesomeness! I absolutely loved this book from page one! M.H Soars takes us on a mysterious story of an alien race, The Arcadians, that have to ensure that a prophecy comes to for the sake of their people. It all falls on 6 young teen Arcadians, and and unaware boy & girl who will make this prophecy fulfill.

Alexia is the unaware girl, who was raised to believe she is the six Aracadians, cousin. The boy is an unknown mystery that they have to find in time, and their are many obstacles in the way. I pretty much knew off the back who this prophecy boy was so it wasn't to much of a surprise when he was revealed, but their are alot of secrets kept besides that in this story and I loved that!

The ending was absolutely frustrating! I know cliffhangers are made to make us WANT MORE NOW, but it doesn't make it anyless frustrating. I seriously can't wait to dive into the next book!

If you are a fan of YA Alien books, and ever watched Roswell and enjoyed it, then I think you should give this book a try. I found it quite the page turner!

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect pacing May 29, 2014
By FireFly
Format:Kindle Edition
So this is one of those reviews I preface by saying that you really don't want to start this book when you've only got ten minuets to read. Which should say something about it! Once you pick it up only extreme exhaustion will remove it from your hands, or car journeys since it's impossible to read and drive at the same time...

To start with everything seems very normal, but M.H.Soars manages to make even that interesting. Then little bits and pieces start to be revealed and you have to concentrate to figure out what's happening. The hint of supernatural you get with the prologue is revealed and I nearly clapped when it started to click.

It was very refreshing to read a book I couldn't predict, one that doesn't follow the cookie cutter pattern and one that does it so very well. The pacing is just right. Enough to keep you desperate for more but not fast enough to get away from you and there are no big information dumps either. Even with the multitude of characters it's easy to keep track of them. And I love the multiple view points. It gives a great insight into both the characters and the world, not to mention that you really start to route for them and it's so frustrating to have one know what the other needs! So many secrets and so much trouble and yet all of the characters came across as well rounded and grounded. They had a purpose but they also have flaws. More importantly they grow and learn through the story so that they don't make the same mistakes over and over which is something I love to find in a book.

Now, I really hope the next one is out soon or is out now. I ought to go check. Silly me not checking these things before starting the book.

Happy reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating PNR May 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
'The Prophecy of Arcadia' is the first book in a new young adult series which combines paranormal romance with science fiction. The story is told through 3 different points of view by main characters Alexia, Sam and Matt.

I was captivated by the story very quickly and found that while it raised a lot of questions it was done in a way that kept me intrigued and on the edge of my seat as I tore through the book. The romantic element was really well done and added to the tension as there were reasons these characters shouldn't be getting together. I really enjoyed Soars descriptions of the characters also as I felt she was describing them realistically which is unusual in YA fiction. I found the characters believable and I really cared about what was happening to them.

The brilliant story takes some shocking turns on the way to the cliff-hanger ending and I was left wishing the next book was out already because I would have snatched it up and torn through it the instant I finished this one.

Overall I was very impressed with this book and look forward to the next one. This could easily be the next big bestseller in the YA genre and it fully deserves to be. I highly recommend this book to fans of paranormal romance!
