Child of Prophecy by T.E. Bradford: Book Review

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?

Book Review:

Very Narnia-esque

I enjoyed the full cast of characters. Nova is the shining star of the group, but she could not get anywhere without her friends and family. The deeply-layered plot drew me in and I stayed up way too late because I could not stop reading.

Seeing the other side of the Divide through Nova’s perspective, the amazing color and experiences she was put through, created a marvelous adventure. There’s the edge-of-your-seat tension that leads you right up to the point-of-no-return and you have to know how everything will be resolved.

At the end, I had to give a full-on stare for several minutes as I absorbed the full impact of the novel.

Geared toward a YA audience, I can see Child of Prophecy thrilling readers of any age. If you’re a C.S. Lewis fan, I humbly ask you give this series a try. I’m anxiously waiting for more from this author.

I requested a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

 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.
