Review: Prophecy of Stones

Prophecy of Stones is the latest novel by Mishka Jenkins. It’s a story of an ancient prophecy and of a group of reluctant heroes. It’s a journey for the characters in more than one sense. They change, grow and we get to see them do that.

The writing was fantastic. The characters are funny and consistent. Fully fleshed out, they had histories, personalities, stories and even voices that were unique to them. The book changes perspective with the chapters, so it allowed the reader to really understand them.

The descriptions of the places were wonderful and vivid. I felt like I was there.There are twists and turns on their journey and they encounter delightful, fun cities and dangerous forests with terrifying creatures.

I loved that there were characters who had made huge sacrifices and were still paying for those choices. I loved that there were some who had made choices they regretted. They weren’t perfect, the world wasn’t perfect and that made it believable and real.

I loved the love story in particular. It wasn’t the usual ‘boy meets girl and they love each other’ story. This was a tale of second chances, of growth and reconnection, of trying hard and sacrificing for loved ones.

An epic tale, with love and magic, Prophecy of Stones delivers. If you’re into fantasy or romance, this would make a fantastic read.

Monday Morsel

Monday Morsel is a little twist I put on the bookish meme Teaser Tuesdays hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. It works just like Teaser Tuesdays…except it’s on Monday. 🙂

Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other Monday Morsel participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

“”Thank you,” she muttered, tucking her hair behind her ear and hastily shuffling away to seat herself next to Kai.

“You’re welcome,” he replied, every nerve stinging at her apparent desperation to be away from him.”
