Saraqael hadn’t intended to fall in love with Kate. It shouldn’t have even been possible. His kind didn’t experience emotion, and they certainly weren’t supposed to become attached to humans.

When he discovers that Kate’s dying and there’s nothing he or her human doctors can do for her, Saraqael realizes how deep his feelings for her run. And he understands just how far he’

To see my full review (8/28):

This novelette is a great short story to pique reader interest. About 30 pages in length, it tells the background story of Saraqael, an Estilorian, and his undying love for Kate, a human, a bond that's unheard of, especially as Estilorian's aren't supposed to feel, let alone love. This is a very fast read, my first taste of the series, and I'm definitely interested to know what happens next, especially with this glimpse of the Estilorian prophe

As I completed Raine's Daughters of Saraqael Trilogy (Becoming, Central and Foretold), I wanted to know more about Saraqael, his relationship with Kate and how it all began; luckily Raine released the Prophecy, which gives us a sneak peek into the history of Saraqael and Kate. The Prophecy is not a full-sized novel; it's just a brief taste of what's to come, but I really enjoyed it and I can't wait to read more. The Prophecy also shows Saraqael's friendship with Quincy, which was nice to see. ...more

What I loved about The Prophecy is that is gives us a better glimpse into how the mind of an Estilorian works and how Saraqael and Kate fell in love. Having read the Daughters of Saraqael trilogy first I was curious about the story behind Saraqael and Kate and was very excited when I found out that Raine was writing their story as a short story. The Prophecy adds a layer of understanding to how the Estilorians live. Since this about Amber, Olivia, & Skye's parents then reading this before or ...more

I loved this short story! I really enjoyed the Daughters of Saraqael trilogy and this story gave me that bit of added history that I was craving. It provided insight into Saraqael's feelings and what he was willing to risk for love. As well, it was great to read about his friendship with Quincy, which was more like that of brothers than friends. Having already read about these characters in the trilogy, I was glad to have more details to help fill in the missing pieces in my imagination. Of ...more

While I realize this is a novella, which I know is suppose to be short (which I why I don't usually like them) - I was VERY disappointed in the ending. I was really looking forward to finding out what happened in more detail with Saraqael & Kate. I really wish there would have been more after their joining. We know from the series that Kate becomes pregnant and Saraqael dies, but it would have been nice to hear more leading up to the birth of the girls.

Wow, what a sweet short story! I would definitely recommend anyone who has read or plans to read the Daughters of Saraqael trilogy to read this. It's a nice bonus from the author. I really enjoyed the interactions between Quincy and Saraqael. Obviously, I also enjoyed all the love Saraqael clearly felt for Kate. I'm so happy to re-enter this world that Raine has painted so vividly!

I have to admit, this was not my favorite read. I had a really hard time following the story, it didn't capture my attention, and though its a shorter read it took me quite a few days to finish it. It was well written, but I just couldn't connect to the characters or the story. I have to say I'm sorry, but I won't be recommending this book.
I love The Prophecy. I really enjoyed getting to know more about Saraqael and Kate's relationship and the friendship between Saraqael and Quincy. I can't wait for the Firstborn trilogy to be released! I love the Estilorians! Raine Thomas is an amazing writer.

I loved knowing more of the back story of how the girls came to be, what their parents were like, since they are talked about so often in the series, and yet, not actual involved characters. The added insight just gives more layers to the whole story in my humble opinion..

I am new to this series. Very interesting plot. I wanted to feel more of the connection between the two friends. This ended perfectly as it is a prequel.
