These are just but a few words that best describe The Prophecy by Petra Landon. It's an urban fantasy set within a world that has many layers that unfold beautifully. From the well developed and ever evolving characters, the back stories as well as the main story, which weaves in and out, and paced perfectly. All of these amazing points create a delicate balance, bringing about a brilliant and memorable start to a series that will

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 protecti

Action, mystery, suspense and intrigue all come into play with The Prophoecy with a little hint of romantic possibilities to come.

The Prophecy is a fast paced and at times action intense story. Its packed with strong characters and backed by a highly engaging plot. What I enjoyed most was the completely new take on the paranormal world.

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 un ...more

There are so many wonderful characters in this story. Tasia, the main character, risks her life and anonymity to save someone she doesn't even know. Hawk is the loyal big brother type who can be counted on for comfort when needed. Sara is Hawk's sister who befriends Tasia and helps her learn the ways of the Pack despite her own discomfort around them. Sienna and Jason are working with the Pack temporarily and have also come to care about Tasia. The Pack's Alpha Raoul extended protection to Tasia ...more

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, apprehensi

Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

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.

The first thing I want to say about The Prophecy by Petra Landon is what a sheer joy it is to read a full-length epic fantasy novel again. Far too many of the fantasy books on the market today are just short, teasers hooking the reader into a series. That can't be said about The Prophecy, which at 418 pages on Kindle is a truly satisfying, chunky and meaty read. Yes, it is part of a series, but at least the author has not shortchanged the reader with a novelette, as so many fantasy authors these ...more

One thing Tasia lives is what her father taught her.. never let them know how powerful you are. She has spent her life living below the radar, pretending to be a low level wizard, but all it takes is one night to change everything. What was supposed to be a routine magic swipe turns into a game changer for her. She can sense magic and the place she is sent to has strong magic and she knows something bad happened here. She senses someone in trouble and since she can't turn a blind eye, she sets o ...more

Let me just say, I can't wait until The Rainmaker, the second book in the series, comes out in early 2018! This book was impossible to put down. It's set in our world, but a world with wizards, shifters, and vampires called The Chosen, regular old humans don't know they exist. As the story goes on, you learn about their structured world little by little, making it a page turner. The characters are delivered in the same way, which makes them even more intriguing. You want to keep reading, just be ...more

OMG. Just finished the Prophecy and it was spectacular! I wasn't sure how I would like it at first. I find that Ms. Landon likes very long paragraphs, multiple POVs and exclamation points. But, the story! The story just drew me in. I couldn't stop reading it! I even read it while at work (shhh)! I just had to know what was going to happen. It was almost suspenseful in the sense that there's subtle hints at things (ahem, Raoul and Hawk anyone?) but nothing happens for awhile! No insta-love here, ...more

I give The Prophecy (book 1 in the Saga of the Chosen series) by Petra Landon 5 stars.
The Prophecy is a wonderful fantasy novel the likes of which I haven’t seen in a long time!

Tasia has been hiding for a long time. This is what her father taught her from a young age. Don’t let them know who you really are or just how much power you wield. So she is hiding in a new city as a low level magic user. Sure, it doesn’t pay well and she lives in the slums, but this is all the better to hide.

The start of the story had me wondering if I'd missed a prologue somewhere, but after a few chapters, I was freaking hooked.

Tasia is a heroine that is realistic-she's not the baddest bitch in the room, but she's not a doormat, either. She believes in herself and has to come to terms with accepting any kind of help-even if she really does need it. She messes up and she fails sometimes. She feels bad and then she gets up and tries again. I found her character to be extremely relatable and down-to-

***I voluntarily reviewed this book, which I received graciously from the author. All opinions are my own.

So definitely a longer book than I was expecting. It kind of started a little slow in the beginning which was a little hard to swallow due to the fact that it looked like this book was going to go on forever, but all of a sudden you started making connections with all of the characters and for me, especially connections with Tasia and Raoul and all of a sudden I was invested and could not st

I loved this book! After having read 100s of books every year for 50+ years, there's very few that surprise me, but this one certainly did! From the plot and the potential romances, I was on the edge of my seat! I loved the main characters and the secondary ones were just as interesting! Unfortunately the next book won't be out until 2018!

I was asked to read and review The Prophecy and give it an honest review.  Urban Fantasy is one of my favorite genres, so of course, I grabbed a copy.  
In The Prophecy, Landon has created a world around wizards, shifters, and vampires that is entirely her own.  I love it when authors reinvent their own mythos and legends around known characters of fantasy and make them uniquely new.  That is what you get with The Prophecy.  

Tasia has been hiding her entire life because of her type of powers, but

The Prophecy by Petra Landon is an urban fantasy readers don't want to miss. I found myself deeply engaged page after page. The plot is intriguing. It has action, adventure, and romance. Inside, readers will find charcaters that vary from vampires to shape shifters. There's a great cast of paranormal beings to love. The mystery was well-done. Kept me on my toes constantly.

Petra Landon has phenomenal skills. Her characters dragged me out of this world and straight into theirs. I loved it. The Pr

This is an amazing read, not only because of the wonderfully written storyline, but because of the well thought out and well defined characters.

This story doesn’t just carry one type of shifter, nor does it carry one type of paranormal character. This book carries shifters of many kinds as well as dual shifters. It also carries witches, wizards and vampires. It isn’t what you would first think of when reading a book that has an Alpha male (in this case an Alpha Protector of a pack of shifters),

This is a great escapist read. Landon's characters are rich in internal dialog in a unique and delightful way. She creates a world overlaid on San Francisco in which shapeshifter, vampires and spell casters form alliances and compete for power. The book follows one fundamental mystery through winding paths, but along the way we meet a great group of characters and are privy to their shifting feelings for each other. Looking forward to Book 2!

Petra has done it again.. I recently read The Mercenary and I really enjoyed Petra's style of writing.

Petra has a great ability to build tensions and mystery in her novels. the main character has a hidden past.. secrets that are still yet to be exposed by the end of the book..

She doesn't skimp on her other characters either , which is great. I really like the fact that she has taken time out to developt all her characters and not just the main one.

I am a sucker for some supernatural conflict.

Who is Tasia Armstrong?

Set in modern day San Francisco, “The Prophecy” is the story of Tasia Armstrong, who is currently living in the city under the guise of a low-level wizard. Always looking over her shoulder and taking great pains hide her secret, Tasia scrapes by with whatever jobs she can get, including the occasional magic gig more suited to a wizard

I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review.

I was expecting an interesting urban fantasy and supernatural novel, but I wasn't expecting such an in-depth look at Shifter society! This careful attention to detail really differentiates The Prophecy from other Shifter novels!

Set in modern-day San Francisco, the plot draws the reader into a world filled with shifters, vampires, and wizards. The plot is rife with political intrigue as this secret "underground" world

Review originally posted on Hills of Books

This was a bit of surprise of a book. Although I had read good reviews of this book, I didn't have that high of an expectations for it, with the generic urban fantasy cover and the unoriginal title I couldn't keep my hopes that high for it. However, I did give this book a try based on the review and recommendation of Bite Into Books, and I am glad I listened and gave this book a chance, because it has pleasantly surprised me.

So good

This is Urban Fantasy. This isn't just another shifter story, this has so many elements involved that twine together to bring you a true Urban Fantasy. I loved everything about this book. Everything. Once again Petra Landon has brought a new refreshing story to us. This isn't the same old, this is something new and exciting. Tasia is a very mysterious character, after finishing this I still have questions! (I'm sure they will be answered in later books!) The same with Raoul. Both seem to

An avid reader all her life, only recently has Petra allowed her own imagination to run riot. She loves to travel and reads everything she can get her hands on. Her idea of a good read is one where the story and characters linger, long after the book has been set aside. Sometimes, when the ending of a promising book disappoints her, she imagines a different and more satisfying outcome for herself. ...more
