Review and Giveaway for Child of Prophecy

About the Book

Book:  Child of Prophecy

Author: T.E. Bradford

Genre:  YA Fantasy

Release Date: August 31, 2018

How far would you go to fit in? Another world?

Fifteen-year-old Nova Hawthorne has a unique trait that sets her apart, yet she wants nothing more than to be normal and fit in.

She soon finds out that there’s a very real reason why she feels so out of place in this world—she’s from another one. And prophecy says she is destined to destroy them both.

Armed only with a magic she does not yet understand and the synesthesia no one else does, she must race to figure out how to stop prophecy from unfolding, find a father she’s never met and discover who she really is. Is it truly our differences that make us who we are? How can you be strong when you’re broken? And what happens when your actions bring about the very destruction you’ve been fighting to prevent?

As a homeschooling mother, I am always on the lookout for new books for  our family.  So when I had the opportunity to review this young adult novel, I had to take the opportunity.  From the very first words on the very first page, I was hooked.  I must say this book is full of interesting and well-developed characters.  It is a fantasy novel, so if that is not something you like to read, you may want to skip this book.  I found some coarse language that I think the book would have been better without.

Fifteen year old Nova reminds me of all the hard parts of being a teenager.  All I ever wanted to do was fit in, but that is not always as easy as it sounds.  I loved how Quentin, Nova’s best friend is in a wheel chair, but that fact does not define him.

I was not sure what I thought of Seth when he was introduced.  I also did not care for the way he took Nova away from her mother and grandfather.  Yet, I appreciated how Quentin recognized that her mother was only doing what she thought was best to keep Nova safe.

So if you like fantasy novels or are looking for one for a young person in your life, check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

“I believe true magic can be found in the things we see and do every day. Life is hard enough. Stories should transport us to another time and place. A magical place, where we can stretch out a hand and touch the wonder of God’s universe.” –T.E. Bradford

 

 More from Tracy

You’ll find music woven into nearly all my stories. This is especially true in the Divide Series books, as our heroine Nova has something called Synesthesia – a condition where your senses may overlap or cross. In Nova’s case, she can see sounds. Cool, right? On her journeys, she’ll encounter plenty of musical elements, but perhaps none as special as…

 

THE SONG OF THE HIGH KING

There is a King on a great golden throne

His beauty and magic so great none can know

He waits and He watches His children below

Waiting to see them all come safely home.

 

Travel high! Travel low! Travel through that great light

In the vastness between, where His city shines bright

Travel with Him and you’ll travel no more

Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.

 

Drink from the fountain that never runs dry

Eat from His table’s bountiful supply

Look in His face, trace the lines of His scars

They never were His wounds… they always were ours.

 

Travel high! Travel low! Travel through that great light

In the vastness between, where His city shines bright

Travel with Him and you’ll travel no more

Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.

Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.
