"This modern day 1984 is just as riveting as Orwell's novel, but if I had to choose, really choose, I'd take Hawley's series over Orwell any day. Why? Not only has Hawley created a unique futuristic novel, but she's also done much research into current events of our time, weaving them into her story and making it even scarier than 1984 ever was."
"Linda Hawley's skill is right up there with the best adventure writers, and her books are important."
"It's like a present that you are slowly unwrapping layer by layer."
From the Author
At five years old, I fell in love with words. If I were going to clone myself as a writer, I would concoct a cloning recipe which would contain the following ingredients: *Lots of varied life experience, to give enough flavor *World travel experience, for color *Passion, for spice *A few crazy relationships, to create perspective *One or two quirks, to add a little crunch *Deep love, to introduce spirit *Curiosity, to add a little danger *A touch of paranoia, to interject alternate realities *Lots of knowledge about current events, for texture *Pride and humility, to bring human characteristics *A touch of insanity, for interest These characteristics have made their way into the pages that you read. My head is filled with stories, and The Prophecies trilogy is only the first that's on paper. Writing it has been one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Many of the subplots and undertones of the trilogy came from my own life experiences. I could tell you all about my higher education, my freelance writing experience, and a bunch of other professional qualifications, but do you (the reader) really care about that? My guess is that you care more that I write compelling novels that take you into a new world, if only for a while. Thank you for reading my stories. Linda Hawley P.S.

I started with The Guardian of Time, then read Dreams Unleashed. So by the end of book 2 I already liked the heroine and very much disliked all the scumbags she had to deal with. So when those folks are introduced in book 1, I already had a bias against them. I guess that's why things should be read in order. The first thing that stood out for me was how smoothly the story moves along. We might be moving three or twenty-three years back and then forward again and there is absolutely no stiltedness between chapters. The pace is quite good. It's not so fast that you get to the end wondering what you've just read. There are no huge shocks that cause you to put the book down to deal with rough imagery.
As I was reading these I could totally see Ann Torgeson being interviewed by George Noory on Coast to Coast AM. I've been involved with Transcendental Meditation since I was 15, so I had no trouble identifying with Ann even though I found myself a bit envious of some of her experiences.
Exchanging freedom for relative liberty is like exchanging water for relative humidity. After the September 11th attacks we were encouraged to do just that. Now, nearly 11 years later we have rules, regulations and and government agencies imposed upon us without our consent. These are topics that might be sensitive to some people, especially anyone who is in favor of what's going on in our culture regarding privacy and freedom. Hopefully reading this trilogy will cause all of us to revisit our opinions about the way things are. I've very much enjoyed reading these books and I look forward to the third installment.
