Set in modern day San Francisco, “The Prophecy” is the story of Tasia Armstrong, who is currently living in the city under the guise of a low-level wizard. Always looking over her shoulder and taking great pains hide her secret, Tasia scrapes by with whatever jobs she can get, including the occasional magic gig more suited to a wizard of lesser prowess. As the daughter of two powerful magic users, Tasia has also inherited considerable power from both parents and it has been through her father’s efforts that her existence is a carefully guarded secret. As such, she must hide out in plain sight for fear of the repercussions that her existence may bring.
For the most part, Tasia has been doing very well blending in and escaping notice, but that all changes when a side magic job ultimately leads to her discovery of a captive Shifter. From the moment she comes to Hawk Manotti’s aid, Tasia’s world is turned on its side as she finds an easy friend in the Shifter and his twin. Unfortunately, Tasia being in the right place at the wrong time has also caused her to become the target of more scrutiny and attention than she ever wanted. The San Francisco area is experiencing a rash of muggings of low level female wizards in the area, of which Tasia’s cover would fit the profile. After Tasia barely escapes an attack of her own she is forced into an unlikely alliance with the Northern California shifter pack. As a guest of the Alpha Protector and under pack protection, Tasia takes up a tenuous residence at the Lair and begins to assist the Alpha and his pack with an investigation into a decades old event. A powerful witch named Lady Bethesda broke into the magical vault in New York 24 years ago died shortly thereafter. The pack, at the request of the Wizard and Shifter heads have been tasked to try to piece together Lady Bethesda’s movements prior to her death and more importantly determine if the sorceress somehow survived the blast that killed many that day. The more the pack discovers with the help of Tasia, the more curious the mystery becomes. As the threads start to unravel, Tasia wonders if she will ever be safe again.
First off, I must say that the above synopsis doesn’t even compare to all the action that is in this book! Being the first in the “Saga of the Chosen” series of books by Petra Landon this a great introduction into the world of the Chosen. Tasia’s San Francisco is full of Shifters, Vampires and Magicks of all type with a unique culture and political structure for each faction. Told primarily from Tasia’s point of view she finds herself navigating quite a few sticky situations as she attempts to adjust to life in the Shifter pack with its many traditions and idiosyncrasies. In a world where Chosen factions tend to keep to themselves and not willingly associate with the other groups, the dynamic Tasia has with the Pack and their Alpha is curious at best and scandalous at worst. Tasia finds herself running afoul of the Alpha Protector more times than she would like, but is inexplicably drawn to him. The budding dynamic between Tasia and Raoul reminds me of a plot of an old school romance novel where no matter how hard the macho lead tries to resist, he falls for the heroine despite himself. If there will be romance in the cards for Tasia and the Alpha Protector is a topic for another installment in the Saga, but for me the seeds are definitely there! Overall “The Prophecy” is a fantastic story – a classic take on the Urban Fantasy with a fresh new twist and I am looking forward to seeing all that this series has to offer.
The Prophecy is a wonderful fantasy novel the likes of which I haven’t seen in a long time!
Tasia has been hiding for a long time. This is what her father taught her from a young age. Don’t let them know who you really are or just how much power you wield. So she is hiding in a new city as a low level magic user. Sure, it doesn’t pay well and she lives in the slums, but this is all the better to hide.
Little does she know, one night can change everything. She is scheduled on a call one evening to clean up some magic blood. This sounds like a routine job. But while there, she is aware of someone in trouble. But she can’t reveal was she is, so she does her job and goes home. Her conscious though, has different plans and she goes back in the middle of the night to help. She ends up rescuing a shifter. This on good deed puts not only her identity, but her own life in danger.
She is forced to accept help from the shifters, they can protect and hide her. Along the way, she realizes how much more is going on. Low level female magic user are being taken. The people supposed to be protecting these people may not be as good as they seem. And there are much more evil forces at hand, including ones thought long dead.
What is really going on? Just who can Tasia trust? And what role does she play in this?
I loved this book. It is much longer than I have been used to lately, but don’t let that daunt you. It is written wonderfully and you will be drawn into the story immediately. There so much going on, you will not be bored. The characters are quite engaging. You will not even disappointed in his wonderful book.
I found the powerful Wizard to be very intriguing. I almost wanted her to win. There are councils, guardians, leeches and of course handsome Alpha protector creating an epic casting crew. The entire story is well paced out with intense action scenes and packed with strong character developments. The literary standard was in high quality-inducing the reader to really dig into this fantasy world.
The author also did not tease you by just providing hints of a story just to drag you to buy the next book. I appreciated that a lot as many authors are recently just tagging the reader inducing them to an annoying amount of none existing literature, only to have them buy their next coming book.
I look forward to reading more from this author. Great writing at its best!
I highly recommend this book to fantasy lovers and sci-fi readers. This book does not disappoint.
