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.
