Rating:  5 Stars
Reviewer: Laurel

One normal day turns into a nightmare when Earth is attacked. Now ER nurse Alexandra Bock is imprisoned aboard an alien slave ship with no way out. She deems all aliens untrustworthy, including the handsome blue-skinned Matiran captain who shares her cell.

Zhurrat Reviews received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

One night of betrayal leaves Senior Captain Gryf Helyg a prisoner of his enemies. Because of him, Earth’s indigenous people face extinction and his home world is threatened. But his plans for escape are complicated by his inexplicable draw to the Earth woman imprisoned with him.

One ancient prophecy holds the key to free Alexandra and Gryf’s war-ravaged worlds. Can two wounded souls who have lost everything learn to trust and forgive in order to fulfill the prophecy, and find a love that will last for eternity?

Wow. Where do I start?

First up, Prophecy is Lea Kirk’s debut novel, and it’s impressive. I think I have a new author to add to my list of ‘must-read’ authors. This novel is ambitious, but it lives up to the challenge. Galactic warfare, planetary near-annihilation, romance, prophecies, intrigue, villains, heroes and heroines, this book has it all. Oh, and a lovely twist on the soul-mate concept. And if you thought you knew all about Atlantis, think again. Kirk spins a tale that’s so believable you might find yourself rewriting the history you remember.

And I’ll say this: this book provided excellent escapist reading on a day when I really needed it.

Well written and vivid, Kirk easily draws the reader in to the world she has created, then traps them there right up till the end.
