Sherdan's Prophecy is one of those books that make me say "End? What?!"

A strong book about the battle between science and religion without exaggerating either side. A scientist who has a dream he wants to fulfil at seemingly any cost, even when he needs to `break' people for that, meets his match in someone whose resilience is beyond what he can imagine.

The end of this book, which is the first part of the Sherdan series, left me in need of the sequel.

Note of warning to parents: this book is not suited for readers younger than 16, perhaps even 18, as there quite some violence and abuse in the story.

This reader thought Sherdan's Prophecy was a well written novel that puts together a Christian woman with a strong faith in her religion and a man of science following a prophecy.

From the beginning I was riveted as Anya was captured and tortured by Sherdan's men while trying to find the book that held the prophecy. Her faith holds strong in her God and she never wavers. Sherdan stops the torture of the his prisoner and while she recovers he tries to convince her to be his queen of this new Utopia. With the gifts his people have, can they make a new and different world? Can he convince Anya the Christian, to live in his world of science? Can Utopia separate from the UK and become their own country or will they be destroyed? There is a growing love between them but can Anya forgive Sherdan's treatment of her? All good questions...

I don't read political intrigue novels and this one kept my attention. I read it all in one day of reading.

I didn't see the end coming, so Surprise! Thank you Jess Mountifield for a great read and I look forward to reading more from you.

this is a book you don't want to lay down. It is a page turner. Anya sneaks into Sherdan's set up. She is caught and Sherdan has her tortured then takes pity on her. She fights Sheridan. Sheridan falls in love with Anya. But does she love him. her christianity plays in a big part of her life. Does Sherdan make his place a Utopia? Does he get his way like he always does or does life throw him a few curves? I stayed up all night to read the book. I found it a book I couldn't lay down it had to be finished in one sitting. A must read book.

This is an intense story about following the guidance of the Lord into a very scary and painful situation. Anya is sent by her church to find out about a potentially terrifying new cult, led by a blindingly charismatic leader. She is immediately captured and brutally tortured.

How can this be God?
This genre-blend of science fiction, political/military thriller, plus romance is compelling. The suspension of dis-belief happens quickly and smoothly as the reader is drawn into a world of fascinating characters, strong personalities, and brutal terror.

Anya’s faith and tenacity are strongly tested
Putting up with horrific torture is not a normal part of the daily walk in the spirit—yet—in America and Europe. But we all know it could come at any time. Is this story prophetic? No. It’s quite a speculative distance from reality. However, the anticipation of very difficult cultural events is real and Jess captures that concern, using it to draw you deeply into Anya’s predicament.

This political/military thriller is very hard to put down
Sherdan is a ruthless leader, driven by a prophecy given through a genius doctor. Is the prophecy real and true? That’s what Anya is being led to deal with. I refuse to spoil it any more than I have.

Spiritually it’s a solid 5-star read
But it will test your view of reality. This is realism at a level rarely seen in Christian fiction. It’s a clean read that skirts the limits. Jess skillfully avoids titillation while dealing with emotional and spiritual issues rarely talked about. It is really well done.

How do you put a new prophet and a very religious christian girl together in a book? Jess Mountifield managed to write a first book in a series about exactly this situation. Anya has been sent by God to the place where Sherdan is trying to build a new society according to a prophecy. The book then gives in detail the problems in a new type of society, the problems with the world around, with the government of the country they're in.
The whole idea is nicely developped, also the growing relation between Anya and Sherdan.
The end of the book is still very open, even when one episode is clearly coming to an end there.
Finding the good and the bad guys is not that easy there, idealists are not always thinking about the others...
Looking forward to reading the next book in the series, hoping it won't take too long!

ps. I received a free e-book in return for an honest review, this has in no way influenced the outcome of this text!

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author. Anya is sent on a mission by God. A new country is being formed by Sherdan, by way of manipulation. Once Anya is inside she is held captive, beaten and nearly destroyed. Hitchin, the resident doctor tells Sherdan this woman is to be his bride. This story follows the twists and turns of this uprising country and the war that begins. Is Anya's faith enough to save her? Great read, but it does end abruptly leaving you looking for book two.
