I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.
This story reminded me so much of the epic fantasies I have read and loved so much! The author has built a really interesting and believable world that will learn that the prophecy is not just something for the future to deal with. The characters fit very well into this world. You really feel that you are there with them. The story was easy to follow, but I was glued to the story because I really wasn’t sure just exactly wher

Prophecy's Queen by Timothy Bond is an excellent example of how a fantasy book should be written. It is full of action and intrigue and leaves little time for readers to catch their breath.

The author did a great job of developing a tale which grabbed my interest from page one. It was full of plot twist and turns, which kept the story flowing and building. There was lots of intrigue and thrills to keep me on the edge of my seat as I read. I really liked the author's style of weaving a tale of fan

Couldn't stop reading

I have read this book twice now. I read it before I read the other books in the saga and I read it again after finishing the second book of the saga. This story line is riveting. I can't wait for .the next book.

Epic fantasy written in traditional style. Will warm the heart of any fantasy buffs who enjoy older texts such at Mort de Arthur as much as newer works. Lots of lovely nods to classic literature style.
Quilting Tangent
Wonderful beginning to a magical fantasy series. It is the time for The Prophecy to be fulfilled by an elven princess, who has prepared for centuries for this moment. Time to set the propherecy in motion for the fight against an evil wizard from an earlier age. Looking forward to the rest of this series.

A REFRESHING READ!!!
A wonderfully written, easy to follow read with twists and turns that captivates your attention from the beginning till the end. I read straight through and couldn't put it down. Its definitely a page turner with surprises and unpredictable. I totally enjoyed this read and think Timothy did an exceptional job in bringing this read to life.

When I first start reading it, I thought I was not going to like the book. As I read each chapter it drew me in more and more. Once I got about two chapters in I could not put the book down. I really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters. Of course my favorite was Rozlynn. I liked how she was playing hard to get. I am excited to read book 2 to see what happens next.

Good read is all I’m going to say. First time reading anything by Timothy Bond and I must say he’s good at his creating his stories. I will most definitely be checking out more of his work in the future.

What an enjoyable story! Fine,fine plot and characters....Left me wanting more,though (it was that good) This has to be part of a larger epic,though and I intend to seek those books out...RECOMMENDED READ!!
Melissa Hayden
After listening to the whole prequel, I think this might be one for readers to read after the first book. The way it ends left me wondering what would come to pass for Rozlynn and if the prophecy was true or not. Thankfully, the author also adds the first three chapters of the first book, which gives you the answers. But I also think that reading the first book then going back to this moment would help fill in gaps a first time reader, starting here, will feel are present.

I picked this up for free on Amazon, attracted by the fact that 1) it was epic fantasy and 2) the author is currently residing in my hometown!

Prophecy's Queen is a quick read (1 hour based on my kindle) that sets the background for Timothy Bond's Triadine Saga. But that's not telling you anything that you can't already tell from the title of this book. Haha.

As this is a novella, it is fairly short in length. At a 162 pages, according to Amazon, it’s an easy afternoon read. However, it gives great insight into the rest of the saga.

Rozlynn might be a princess, but she knows that she plays an important role in The Prophecy. Unfortunately, her sister, Queen Lilliene, disagrees with her. The queen doesn’t believe that the time of The Prophecy is upon them and thinks that Rozlynn is being rash and is sick and tired of Rozlynn always going on about The Pr

I enjoyed reading Prophecy's Queen, the prequel novella to the Tridine Saga, and I'm now looking forward to the first book in the series, the Watcher's keep. Hopefully, I'll be better grounded as the series progresses.

I found this book enjoyable, easy to read/follow and the characters were realistic, believable. The storyline seemed to waver at times, though - sometimes it lagged, while other times it picked up pace. I found the formality of the writing style took a little getting used to, however once I did, it was no longer an issue. I wish the story had gone more in to the growing relationship between Leondis and Rozlynn. After all, she had been there a little under a year, and yet the reader is only given ...more

I like epic fantasy more similar to Game of Thrones than to Lord of the Rings, however, this kept my attention and had me interested as to where the story would lead. I had seen the trilogy advertised, yet did not want to invest in books of 200,000+ pages only to find the story or writing not to my liking. Getting this book for free did indeed plant the seeds of curiosity for the full novels. As I said, I'm not normally interested in Goblins and elves, however, I think this novella is a great se ...more

Too much prophecy

I understand this story relies heavily on prophecy, hence the title of the story, however, it became so redundant hearing about it that it was detracting from my enjoyment.

The story itself was well done for a short novella about how the main characters were to meet and come together to see the prophecy along the proper path. The characters were likable enough and the reader could connect with them. Basically it was just a drama story to provide a background for the trilogy and

It's an OK start

If the point of this book is to just give you some background context to the The Triadine Saga. It does an OK job. You get some understanding of the players and a tiny bit of background. However it felt a little rushed and incomplete. The beginning jumped around to various characters and rushed through trying to give some of the background history, but it didn't really flow well and was hard to keep track of. The information was not memorable. There was not enough character devel

This review is based on the Beta edition so no guarantee that issues found there will still be in the released version. This book is supposed to jump start the Triadine Saga by showing a little bit of back story on how the king and queen met to produce kids that will be in the main trilogy. Although the purpose of the novella was served, it was difficult to get past a lot of the OMFG You gotta be kidding me moments created by the style of writing. The novella also suffered from scope explosion d ...more

If that's the sequel, I'm ready right now to read more!
I'm not usually into fantasy stories, but I have to admit: I did like this one.
First of all, let's face the truth here: we all love Dwarves and Elves &Co.
And I personally do love prequels: for me are always the best part of anything, either when it comes to movie or books.
I lose myself into the idea that everything's about to happen, and you get to understand how and why.
And here is an engaging book,an easy read that will make your day.

Left me wanting more

Prophecy's Queen is an intriguing story. It is the story of an Elven princess who is trying to make a human king fall in love with her in order to fulfill an ancient prophecy the says the world will end if half breed children are not born to save it. While the princess has a spell that will make the king immediately fall in love with her, she wants him to fall in love with her without magic.

To avoid spoilers, that is all I will say about the plot. I highly recommend this boo

I enjoyed this book so much. I was drawn into the story from the very first page and could not wait to see what would happen on the next page. Rozlynn made some sacrifices and some tough choices but to find out more you will have to read the book. She had to deal with some conflict, and try to choose her own destiny. I was wondering just what she would do.

This author has several other books- "The Watcher's Keep" and "The Dragon Rises" and I can not wait to read these books. The first one was li

You know a book is good when you finish reading, and you keep looking back at it like there must be more story in there somewhere! I will be downloading the next one ASAP. I can't believe I didn't know about this author.

The world building is phenomenal, and I cannot wait to see what happens next with these fantastic characters.

If you are a fan of David Eddings then you will love this series!

This is a good book. I wish I'd read the other books first before this prequel. After reading it first I'm not sure if I'll read the other books. The characters are interesting and it's a good story. I did enjoy reading it, though parts were slow and needed more action. I'm hoping the other books will have more action and I'm curious to find out if parts of the prophecy came to fruition.

Pleasantly unpredictable!

Multiple story fibers developed through the story to form a well crafted yarn of fantasy. It painted an excellent picture for anyone looking to be caught up in its characters and conflict.

Better than expected. I felt it started a little too simplistic, but then I did engage with the characters and plot, and things started to move along. It's a quick read, as well, and I am interested enough to follow through on the trilogy now. Closer to 3.5 stars.
