Set in San Francisco, in a world where wizards, shape shifters and vampires exist unknown to the human population, this is a captivating, action packed and thrilling adventure The supernatural world that Ms Landon has created is intriguing and I found myself totally immersed in Tasia s journey Tasia has always kept a low profile, hiding in plain sight in order to guard her deadly secrets, until the night she rescues an injured shifter She is now forced to turn to the shifter pack for protection when her good deed draws unwanted attention and danger to her Tasia is new to the shifter s ways and struggles to fit in, and seems to cross the Alpha at every turn He knows that she is keeping secrets but Tasia is reluctant to open up After reading the synopsis on Goodreads I thought that the book sounded like something that I would like, WOW did I underestimate that This book was everything that I look for in a fantasy It had great plot, characters, edge of your seat action, and an element of suspense all weaving together seamlessly into one great story.
The characters are very well put together, and I just seemed to connect with each and every one of them in totally different ways Found myself rooting for some, apprehensive of others, disliking in a good way a few, and laughing along with many The characters drive this story, with extremely well done backstories that were expertly integrated into the story as to not feel like the story took a lull while telling them The tensions the author was able to bring to life whether it be between chara
Landon does a marvelous job at world building and creating a place you can let our imagination go.
I received this copy of The Prophecy from Petra Landon This is my honest and voluntary review.
This is Urban Fantasy at its best there are many types of sups in the book and this makes for an excellent start to this series The book isn t perfect, there s some monotonous dialogue but, IMHO no writer is completely perfect and the story and originality makes up for mistakes that take nothing away from the enjoyment of the story itself I received this as one of my Prime books and it lingered on my shelf for months, but I m glad because once I read it I only had a couple of weeks to wait until book 2 was released now I m impatiently waiting for the next one.

I m so so so surprised by this book Mainly because it has very little readers on Goodreads I wasn t really sure what I was getting into, when Petra Landon asked me to read the book It took me some time to get into, but I loved it I ll tell you why.
This review was first posted on BiteIntobooks BlogProsLanguage choice I truly loved the way this book was written I learned SO MUCH new English words It was written beautifully and described so well The words that were used added a lot of depth to the story There were so much words that you don t see that often in a book and it was great to read a book with a different feel to it So happy with my Kindle Dictionary, since English is not my native language Lot of mystery The book starts with a lot of mystery and also ends with a lot of m 3.
0This is a very promising start to what looks like a fabulous urban fantasy series The story is unique and extremely engaging, pulling the reader in almost immediately The only glitch in the story was the constant repetition of thoughts, points, extra Readers are told something, then soon after that same point is re told almost verbatim of the first time Then, further on, that same point is again re told This happens often enough that it slows the story and gets very annoying If the author tightened up those stop points, this book would truly be a 5 star read The story is seriously that good
