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.
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.
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.
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!

Sherdan's Prophecy was an enjoyable read. First in a series, and it does leave you kind of hanging. Christian girl meets dictator, some of it was a little far fetched. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Jodi
