it was amazing

In a world that’s been kept peaceful for a thousand years by the church, Nathaniel always wanted more out of his life. He regularly dreamed of being a knight and hero to his friends and neighbors, but he never felt inclined to follow that path until his friend Thomas is taken for a teaching.

When Thomas returns, his dreams are ripped away and Nathaniel’s other close friend, Orah, is soon selected to be taken for her teaching. In an attempt to save her, he approaches the vicars and is thrown in their dungeons where he meets the first keeper of secrets from a bygone age.

As a huge fantasy fan, I loved the premise of the book and it didn’t disappoint. The three friends face many trials as they attempt to avoid the vicars and follow a hidden path to a keep built by the remaining scientists following an age of technological marvel.

As most fantasy tales do, this story makes us look at how future generations may view us. In Nathaniel’s world, the past was filled with nuclear wars and other atrocities. There Comes a Prophet is a dystopian novel that will stay with you long after you finish reading it.
