War has overtaken the Oaken duchies and it falls to our heroes to prepare defenses against the advancing horde of Sudashians. Shaped by battles and diplomacy Nik, Jak and Kenders aren't mere children anymore. Nik has grown into his powers and Kenders has been honing her own control over magic by apprenticing under one of Terrene's most powerful mages. Jak has been making great strides of his own while training with the Shadow Manes soldiers. In this newest book, they all face trials of the mind, heart, and arms as the tale weaves about multiple plots.
Prophecy is more complex than Progeny was in so many ways. The stage has shifted from a single duchy to all of them and more. Our heroes we fell in love with in Progeny are all back with a couple new ones thrown in for good measure. Within Prophecy, a clever reader is made more aware of what motivates the "evil" gods of the Cabal and their plans to return. We also become cognizant of the ulterior motives of the "good" and neutral gods and begin to question everyone's goals. There are even a few new races we meet throughout the adventures within Prophecy's pages. And for Kaelin's biggest fans, Prophecy is loaded with references to the short stories Ryan has written and given away for free on his website.
Prophecy was a lot of fun to read and continues the epic tale set forth by Progeny.Read more ›
I loved Progeny due to the level of writing (very smooth, easy to read, very descriptive) and because I "connected" to the characters in the book. Kenders & Nikalys both seemed like great kids, full of mischief, personality and potential.
When I was approached about doing a review of Prophecy I jumped at the chance even though I am absolutely swamped (I've read 5 full length books in addition to Prophecy (600+ pages) in the last 2 weeks). I wanted to know what the next book would tell us about the fight between good & evil, the growth of Kenders, Nikalys and Jak their brother. It wasn't quite what I expected.
Prophecy has the same high quality writing, the scenes are well thought out and each character is well rounded. Many of the vague details and events mentioned in Progeny are described more thoroughly and you will meet new characters (Khin, Rhohn, Wren, Tobias and my favorite Okollu & Broedi who is from Book 1) from many different races and species. I loved to see the maturity of Nikalys grow from boy to man by the end of the book. Kenders still has a ways to go - and I'm sure we'll see her maturity come out in book 3. We also learn about the history of the White Lions and why they were formed as well as learn of a Prophecy that provides clues to events to come. Book 2 sets up the foundation of the rest of the series by giving us the background and a peek at the future of the World of Terrene.
That being said, I struggled some with this book.Read more ›
