This book is a great read. It is part one of three, which is obvious in the way the author very leisurely moves through the story. We are eased in to the characters, learning about Aniah through her own eyes, and learning about Novell through his stories. I love Novell's stories.
They do make up the bulk of the first half of the book, and I wouldn't have minded hearing more. He tells of all of the different tribes he has visited on the I received this book from the author in exchange for a review. He tells of all of the different tribes he has visited on the planet, about their customs, their attitudes and their lives.
It really made me think about the different tribes, as well as Aniah's own. It made me wonder about their technologies, their people, and how a group who seems to rely heavily on hunting and gathering can have steel. But then I'm an archaeologist, so I do think it's a credit to the author to present these peoples in such a way that I want to know more about them. The book alternates between Aniah's and Novell's point of view, which I liked, but having the first named "The Stranger" when the rest are named for whose point of view we are following was a little odd.
Aniah's voice is very heavily influence by how Stephanie Meyer write, with some of the odd turns of phrase so common in Meyer's books. On the other hand, the author seems to find more of her own voice when writing Novell, and I hope that becomes stronger in the next books in the series. She has a wonderful way of writing, and I hope that shows through. I do have some small problems with the book, but most are formatting issues, common with independent publishing. I also found it funny that their homestead was called a ranch, when there was no evidence of it actually being a proper ranch, and that there seemed to be a lack of characterization of anyone else in the tribe, except Jessum, and there was a strong lack of other women; the only other woman in the book that wasn't family was a point of strong jealousy for Aniah.
As well, and this may just be my dislike of nicknames, why shorten a short name like Aniah to Ana? Overall, a great read, very light and enjoyable, and I look forward to reading the next books! May 07, Joyce Geyskens rated it really liked it.

I really liked this book. Aniah, the main character, is a young woman who has lived in the same small tribe her entire life. She lost her father at a very young age, which made her who she is today, namely a strong, independent and yet caring person. She led a normal life for a duration of 20 years before everything changed. This change in her life was caused by her meeting Novell. A handsome and wise man who turns her world upside down. He tells her stories about his journeys and the people an I really liked this book.
He tells her stories about his journeys and the people and things he encountered on those voyages. At the start, however, I was quite shocked by the introduction of Novell. It happened so early in the book, while I felt like I didn't know Aniah enough, but by reading more I understood that we get to know Aniah and Novell through each other. Emma Daley, the author, chose to use two narratives in her story.
Aniah and Novell each tell their part of the story. The thoughts and feelings of Aniah and Novell flowed into each other without any difficulty and this without losing any aspect of the story. So actually she turned a negative in a positive: Feb 03, Rebecca rated it liked it. It is a paranormal romance book that plays in another world, on another planet. I think the best description is: But back to The Propheticus! I was hooked when I was like pages into the story.
I felt like the first pages could have been 40 pages long and still tell the same story. The story that is described on the back of the book starts about halfway into the pages. But still, the idea is great! The world Emma is describing sounds awesome! And Novell cool name! I hope to read right into the action there, because the real story just got started in this one — and I want to read what happens next of course lol. And thanks so much Emma for sending your books to Holland! Oct 24, Amy rated it really liked it.
I received this book from Emma Daley herself via Amazon Kindle. To be honest, I didn't know what to think of this book at the very beginning. It seemed to be starting a little slow for me. As I continued reading though, I was captured by the stories of Novell's travels almost as completely as Aniah herself.
The storytelling is done expertly, even though at first I though it was a little too much. The story progressed and I was starting to appreciate the background information of the tribes.

When I hit the halfway point of the novel, I was officially hooked. The darkness lurking in the shadows began to make me anxious for the safety of Aniah and her family. The end, though, was so captivating. It did what every book should at its conclusion It made me want to read the next book. On that note, I'll be looking forward to reading the next two books in the series. Congratulations to Emma Daley for writing such a captivating ya series which can stand next to any of the top series this year.
Jun 13, Emma Debruyne rated it liked it Shelves: First I started to think that this would just be a love story.
Not a bad one though, but I couldn't see how there could be two other books like this since it is a trilogy. Luckily, halfway through the book there was a dead mouse, an omen something was going to happen, and the Sleepwalkers were first mentioned, maybe the anemy who was to come?
And then finely the last two chapers ended the book with a bang and caused me longing for more. I liked the world and the different places the author described. I've always found it facinating how scince-fiction- and fantasywriters can create an intire world like that. Emma Daley for sure made me wander about that even more. Realy a good book.

I thought I would be giving this book 5 stars until the last few chapters where it became obvious that this is not a standalone book.
Unfortunately the cliffhanger ending knocked it down a little in my perspective, but I still intend to read the next installment. May 09, Nora rated it really liked it Shelves: I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads and I'm waiting for it to arrive I really enjoyed reading this book. The story kept me interesting all along, although I hate that it finishes, and I have to wait to read the next book. I most definitely want to know what happens next. I enjoyed the way the chapters were written using the different points of view of the main characters.
This was not a fast moving book but it managed to keep my attention. It is full of mystery and really keeps you wondering what exactly is going on. There is definitely an underlying love story which also usually loses me quickly , but the feel of adventure stays with you through it all. Definitely going on to book two! Thank you Emma Daley for gifting me with the pleasure of reading your book!

This was an imaginative and unique world that I highly enjoyed discovering. The imagery was beautiful and very descriptive and the story line held my attention from the very first page. Aniah was a great heroine and was really interesting.

I liked seeing how she handled these situations and learning about her and how she interacted with all of the others as well as the prophecy that brought them all together. There was so much depth to her character and I really enjoyed learning about this new and sometimes frightening world that she lives in. I highly recommend this book to fantasy and sci-fi lovers alike and I can't wait to see what happens next! Overall, this was a really good book; it held my attention and kept me wanting more.

So when I saw this on my Amazon recommended list I was skeptical, but no more. I think this is a perfect example of where the genre is headed, and am all too happy to write a quick note encouraging others to read this treasure. OK, that's it, on to the next one It kept my attention which is something a lot of books have struggled to do. I love how descriptive Emma is.
The whole time I was reading it I kept getting lost in it. I could almost feel like I was there. Feedback If you need help or have a question for Customer Service, contact us.
