Format: Hardcover
M. B. Weston's A Prophecy Forgotten (Book One of The Elysian Chronicles) is an outstanding first novel in what is bound to be a significant book series. Though technically a Young Adult book, A Prophecy Forgotten is Young Adult the way the Harry Potter series is - people of all ages will love it. The action starts in a mystical place called Heaven's Realm, where the Cherubians (the good guys, for the most part) are locked in a war with the Mornachts (the bad guys).

The story stretches all the way to earth, where a novice Cherubian soldier named Gabriella watches over a troubled young boy named Tommy. Tommy is the subject of the forgotten prophecy for which the book is named. Unaware of his epic destiny, Tommy is kept plenty busy by the break-up of his parents' marriage and problems at school. While Gabriella does her best to protect him from bullies and wandering Mornachts, a Cherubian Special Forces officer named Davian is trying to learn just what role Tommy will play in saving Heaven's Realm. Davian leads a hand-picked team of Cherubian soldiers deep into Morvenia, the land of the Mornachts, not knowing that the real threat is back in his home country, Elysia.

M.B. Weston has created a fantastic world filled with prescient unicorns, hyperactive sprites, supposedly neutral gnomes, wolves, Sabers (saber-toothed tigers), dragons, and a Minotaur or two. Even so, this is no fantasy realm: There are rules here. The Cherubians can fly, but they are susceptible to poisonwood arrows fired by the Mornachts. When a Mornacht is killed in battle it explodes, posing all sorts of difficulties for covert operators like Davian. A set of books called The Runes is believed by some Cherubians to hold the answer to their difficulties, but others scoff at this ancient wisdom.

You're never too young or too old to enjoy a great adventure such as "A PROPHECY FORGOTTEN." I couldn't wait to turn the page and join this journey of action, suspense, faith, and deception. Do yourself a favor and enter the world of Elysia; Davian and Gabriella are waiting for YOU!

I read this in one sitting--don't usually read the genre, but it captivated me with the action, original and creative story line. A must read for the fantasy audience. Would be fantastic on the big screen!

This is an amazing book! I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. I love the characters (most of them, anyway),the humor, the depth, and the action. M. B. Weston is a master story teller, using words to paint a world so vivid it must be real. But beware, you who dare to venture the pages of this book... As surely as you will feel the thrills of battle, loyalty, love, courage, friendship, and adventure, you will just as surely feel the grief of loss and the bitter sting of betrayal. You will be left with the joy that only a book that takes you into a world not your own yet is your own can bring. We can all find ourselves in the characters of these chronicles, their faith and courage can be ours. And as for those of us who see bits of themselves in those not so lovable characters, you are challenged to not conform to what is popular but to stand for what is right.

This is one of the most interesting combinations of fantasy and angels that I have ever read. The characters are great and I love Davian. I gave this four stars just because I feel like the book took a little while to really get going and for me to really sink into the story, but once I was involved I had trouble putting the book down because I had to know what was going to happen next.
There's mystery, chaos, betrayal, some amazing fight scenes, and really stand out characters in this book, and it's setting everything up for a truly epic saga that I look forward to continuing.

A Prophecy Forgotten is an excellent read for young people and adults alike. Both my 15 year old son, and I enjoyed it very much. If you like Lord of the Rings, you will like this book.

By Jason Woodham on August 1, 2014
Format: Hardcover
When I first found out A Prophecy Forgotten was about angels protecting a seven-year old boy, I was mildly skeptical about it. Visions of harps, halos, and fat, little rosy-cheeked babies with white wings flashed through my mind.

Boy... was I wrong...

Heaven's Realm was under attack by creatures straight from one of Tolkien's worst nightmares! But, take heart! These cherubs have traded their harps and halos for swords and shields. And they aren't adorable infants wearing oversized helmets either... they're muscle-bound Navy SEAL's with wings!

However, this is not to say that they don't have big hearts. More than once, I smiled at Tommy O'Connor's boyishness and his childish love of the world. M.B. Weston strikes a rare medium as she creates both a heart-warming tale and an action-adventure full of espionage and betrayal. And, yet, somehow it felt reminiscent of the Lord of the Rings.
