I absolutely loved Hoygul...I enjoyed how although he appears...eccentric...but he is very astute to the truth. He is one of my favorite characters! The Prophecy is a perfect set-up for a fantastic series!
While a bit awkward from time to time, the story was interesting and the characters became richer as time went along. The problem was the end.** It just stopped. Kind of like this review would if I had published it at the **. It was a very unsatisfactory experience.
Since there is a teaser for the first book of the series, I read that hoping to find a bit more about the story's end. No such luck. The book starts a new story that is only loosely linked to the short story. That is a common enough technique. Unfortunately, the book wasn't very interesting.
Quincy and Saraqael's bromance is a pleasure to read and their back and forth ribbing made me smile, and I would happily read an entire novel on their adventures. Hoygul, a new character in the series, might be one of my favorite fantasy characters ever. He was only in the story for about two pages, but his quirkiness left its mark, and I laughed out loud at Raine's head nods to Homer's Odyssey.
Fans of the Daughter's of Saraqael trilogy will love this short story, and if you're a new reader it's a great way to dip your toes into the Estilorian world.
I have a feeling that this story will progress with both characters, but mainly Quincy, playing a huge part in the next stories. For some reason I was more drawn to the Quincy character.
I would definitely keep reading if there were more books out there, but it's a waiting game at this point. and since I can't add them to my wish list, I hope I remember to look them up in the future.
You won't regret it.
Estilorians live on a separate plane to Earth, and they possess abilities that we humans only fantasise about. I can't tell you too much more in case you haven't read the Daughters of Saraqael trilogy. Sorry!
