{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!

"I've got one." (page 1, line 1)
A unique read that caught my attention from the first page and held it until the very last line.

I liked Callie. Right off the bat we see her at her most awkward - staring, freaked, obsessed - but along with awkward she's also strong, resilient, loyal, determined and a survivor in many ways.

Liam. At first the mysterious Liam Hale was rude, broody, frowny, cold and completely uninterested in the heroine. But that's just him on the surface. He has reasons to keep his distance. I was intrigued by him and even more so as the different facets of his character were slowly revealed.

I really liked Julie Anne's writing style; the way she described the setting, the people, the emotions... I was absorbed. I usually can't wait to get to the good stuff, revealing the mystery and all the answers but with Prophecy I enjoyed the journey, how Julie Anne set the scene and let me get to know the characters.

Although I wish the story had gone a bit deeper into detail with the mythology I'm definitely hooked on this series and can't wait to find out what happens next.
