It's time to start nominating books for the April Fantasy Theme: Prophesy. For this round, since we are a much larger group than we were at the beginning of the year, I would like to try a round of nominations with seconding before a book is added to the list.

So, Everyone can nominate a book and can second someone else's book. Once a book is seconded, and if it fits in the theme :-) then it will go onto the list we vote off of. After we have 5 or 6 books, I'll open up a poll ....


April Fantasy Theme Books
Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
The Second Coming by David H. Burton
The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind
The Last Prophet by Jeff W. Horton

Michael (demzer) | 9 comments I nominate Good Omens. Good Omens by Terry Pratchett Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. It's a comic tale about the end of the world and an angel and demon who have come to like the earthly plane and aren't too happy about that. Also involves the Prophecies of a witch who it turns out was the only authentic seer in history. It's quite a good read and the comic tone is a nice change of pace from all the hardcore fantasy stuff.

I will so second Good Omens - I love that book and I don't want to give Charles a chance to second it first.

I'm going to nominate The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller.

The Innocent Mage (Kingmaker, Kingbreaker, #1) by Karen Miller

I've heard good things about this one but never quite got around to reading the series.

Sannie Hald (sanniehald) The Eye of the World (Wheel of Time, #1) by Robert Jordan

There's a prophesy in it, but it is a part of a series.. so..

David Horton | 1 comments I'd like to nominate The Last Prophet by Jeff W. Horton by Jeff W. Horton.

It's based on the book of Revelation in the Bible.

Carey Bostwick (carebear11) | 40 comments I read Good Omens and it is good, however, I would like to second the nomination for The Innocent Mage by Karen Miller.

The description of the books sounds interesting.

Laura Hart (lobopub) | 12 comments Hi Geoffrey,

Well, dammit, I'm writing a sequel to The Toy Sorcerer entitled, 'The Final Prophecy' - can we re-run this some time in November? :)

Would I be way off topic if I put forward George Orwell's 1984?

This is a gooooood list ... do we want 1 more?

Cloey.k (cloeyk) | 14 comments I like the choices that are listed here already - anymore and I will not be able to decide, hahaha. I am adding most of these books to my TBR list because they seem like they will be very good reads!


message 21: by Charles (new)

Charles (nogdog) Small Gods by Terry Pratchett.

Small Gods (Discworld, #13) by Terry Pratchett


message 22: by Steph (new)

Steph Bennion (stephbennion) | 84 comments Can I be very silly and suggest Watership Down? It starts with a prophecy. It came to mind because Christopher Booker raves about it in The Seven Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories (itself an excellent read, by the way).

Otherwise, I second Good Omens...

message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

This is a great list ... I'm going to go make the poll now ...


message 29: by Jeff (new)

Jeff Shanley (Mavonduri) | 14 comments I'd like to second The Last Prophet.

And I'd also like to nominate my own novel if that's ok, MATHION: BOOK ONE OF THE MAVONDURI TRILOGY. Prophecy is a major element in the book, as the main character Mathion possesses the ability to foresee events with great clarity, and his life itself is also prophesied to have a great impact on the Wolven's war with the Werewolves of Kânavad.

Jeff Shanley (Mavonduri) | 14 comments Oops nevermind. Just read Geoff's last post. Apologies!
