This is not just a prequel, it's a must read introduction to the Saga! - 05-May-2015
About the Author
I spent nearly 20 years deciding whether or not I wanted to be an author. My field is information technology, and I specialize in manufacturing systems. It's technical, challenging, and requires you to stay focused and current with changes in the industry. I started going to a fantasy world in my mind many years ago, and the adventures of Peter and Alexandra were my escape from the harsh technical world all around me. The twins were enthusiastic, energetic, eager to go out and explore their world, and willing to take on any challenge necessary. I have often said that I travel to the Upper Aren and come back and write about it, and I really do feel that way at times. My own eclectic interests fueled the twin's activities, as I have done a little of everything in my life. I suspect it's because of my adult attention deficit disorder, and a need to try everything at least once. Though I am an American, and was born in Washington State, I currently live in Penang, Malaysia and travel the region on both business and pleasure regularly. I hope you enjoy the adventures of my characters and they become a part of your lives, as they have long been a part of mine.

Rozlynn might be a princess, but she knows that she plays an important role in The Prophecy. Unfortunately, her sister, Queen Lilliene, disagrees with her. The queen doesn’t believe that the time of The Prophecy is upon them and thinks that Rozlynn is being rash and is sick and tired of Rozlynn always going on about The Prophecy. So, in the end, Rozlynn decides to no longer bother the queen with her observations and does what she must.
This prequel was written after the first two books of The Triadine Saga. However, the author claims this book can stand alone. Once you realize that it’s the prequel to a much greater story, you’re more than interested to look at the following book, The Watcher’s Keep. Well-written and rich in imagery, it’s an interesting story that keeps your attention from beginning to end as the intrigue is played out. This prophecy affects everyone, elves, dwarves, and humans alike. As such, this small novella has a large cast of characters. While we are introduced to some more than others, you’re still given a great idea as to what will follow and make you excited to continue reading the saga.
There were a few areas that were edited a little differently than I’m used to. That’s not a bad thing, but it did mess with me a little bit. There also were areas where a lot of information is given out here and there. One dealt with Rozlynn’s appearance and that’s the one that bothered me the most. The others seemed to fit into place a little bit more. I do realize this was a novella, so a lot of information needed to be handed out in a small amount of space, but I personally believe it could have been worked in a bit better. Other than that small bit, this book was a great read.
I’d recommend this to anyone who was interested in continuing to read The Triadine Saga. It looks like it will be an interesting read and I’m looking forward to doing so.
The writing style is impeccable, it is beautifully edited, and I must say ... although some of the critical reviews state it bounced around or was repetitious, I found none of that. I'm not exactly sure how the author could improve on it, as it did what was expected--- provided the background information for the future. I think it is unfair that one reviewer stated the subplot went nowhere-- isn't that what the trilogy will be for? The action packed epic full story?
If you love epic fantasy, be sure to take a chance with this. Personally, I would want to kill all the darn Goblins and elves--- I'm still traumatized by the Dark Crystal as a child. So burn baby burn--- but I'm sure others will not feel that way.
The author did a great job of developing a tale which grabbed my interest from page one. It was full of plot twist and turns, which kept the story flowing and building. There was lots of intrigue and thrills to keep me on the edge of my seat as I read. I really liked the author's style of weaving a tale of fantasy.
Timothy Bond did an excellent job of developing a cast of characters that were easy to believe in and follow. By providing just the right amount of background information on each character, they came alive and were very real. Couple this with a well written tale and I was absorbed into the story and loved it.
I really liked Prophecy's Queen by Timothy Bond and I highly recommend this book to all readers.
After being introduced to the King, he instantly wants this unknown nobles daughter but she will not become a queen who overlooks their husband infidelities. While Leondis will never know all that she has sacrifice, she cannot forget that she has left everything and everyone she loves so that the world might have a chance to survive and as they get to know one another she finds herself falling in love with the king which she did not expect.
This prequel ends as Rozlynn releases the spell and Drianna leaves the city as she promised Rozlynn she would do.
