The Prophecy by Dawn Miller

My Thoughts
The more I am advancing in this book, the more it makes me think of Frank Peretti’s This Present Darkness. Written in a similar way, the novel will keep you on edge and it will be difficult to let go of the book. The story makes you wonder what will happen next and if the conclusion will be dramatic.

I am enjoying this novel even though it is rated for teens. Honestly, I think adults will like it as much as teens. I also think that this would be a wonderful movie on the big screen some day. Actually, the author of the book is also working on a graphic novel (this should be interesting) as well as a film version of The Watchers Chronicles.

Finally, this book is a guaranteed good read from Zondervan. This means that if you did not think this book was a good read, you simple mail it to Zondervan with your receipt and your complete mailing address and they will reimburse you. You have two months to do so. But my guess is that no one will take advantage of this offer as the story will definitively grab your attention and hold it until the end of the book!
