Start your review of The Prophet: Intro to the Kota Series
I received a free electronic copy of The Prophet by Sunshine Somerville in exchange for an honest review. The book is the prequel/introduction of the Kota Series. It follows a young man name Hazan who has prophetic nightmares and his dream counterpart Renny. They are recruited by the Kota, alongside another prophet team to compile the prophesies their dreams and nightmares foretell in an effort to save humanity’s future. I'd class it as a YA read with a Sci-Fi/Fantasy mix. The Prophet is both ea ...more

Hazen Stephenson has nightmares - disturbing, sometimes terrifying, dreams about the distant future or sometimes about tragic events that will happen imminently and which he feels an urgent compulsion to try to influence. Sometimes he succeeds, but not always; unfortunately, there is no way of telling in advance which dream scenarios are changeable and which are not, that is, until he meets Renny Nado. The Prophet by Sunshine Somerville chronicles the dramatic change in Hazen’s life as he makes ...more

The Prophet: Companion Story is an entry in The Kota Series by Sunshine Somerville, a dystopian novella with great and exciting characters. The dystopian setting conjures powerful, grim images. Hazen Stephenson, a man who experiences disturbing lucid dreams, sets out across the world to meet people he encounters in his dreams, and he has a lot of impact on their lives. Renny Nado has a Creative Writing Degree and has never considered what to do with

I knew this was a prequel to the main series..and wasn't sure what to expect. However, as I advanced throughout the book, the thought of 'prophets' sharing the lying and yang of their visions until satisfied that they had left a permanent marker for those chosen for future tasks to save mankind not only believable but feasible too.
Neither was I surprised when their base was set in Tibet where relevance to today's Dalai llama was unmistakable. A fascinating foresight into how the futur

This book totally wowed me! The author is new to me and I sure am glad I found her. This intro to the Kota series was so good. I read the book in just a couple of hours. I was hooked right at the beginning and the story held me captive until the end. The ending left me really wanting more! I was immediately drawn to the two main characters Hazen and Renny. Hazen has been a part of Renny’s dreams and she just knew she had to find him. Even though this was a quick read, it was packed with suspense ...more

A quick read and a prequel to the author's KOTA series, this novelette charmed me the minute one of the characters interrupted a conversation to explain the difference between a trope and cliche. "The Prophet" follows Hazen, a young man with troubling visions of the ill-fated, who tries desperately to intervene and save as many lives as possible. But when he meet Renny, he is introduced to a sect that recognizes his dreams for what they could be, a warning of a dark future with an event horizon ...more

Interesting read, Hazen can see the future and he does his best to prevent people from dying, though he's not always successful. When he meets Renny who knows who he is and what he does for she has seen him in her dreams, she tells him of a group, Kota and he needs to meet them. Very unique storyline and characters!! ...more

A very interesting intro to a series and I have found a new author to stalk. I really am interested to see where this story will go from here. I would have given 5 stars but as a personal choice I don't give 5 to intro or short stories. Must Read though, I don't think it will disappoint. ...more

Great starting point

I really enjoyed this book. It only took a few hours to read, and this story is very easy to grasp. I'd recommend this intro to anyone that is a fan of supernatural books with a realistic vibe.
