The Prophecy by Dawn Miller

In this intense, emotionally charged supernatural thriller for young adults by author Dawn Miller, the angelic forces of heaven and hell wage battle over mankind, placing five gifted teenagers in the middle of a war only they can end. Each of the five has struggled since a terrifying night in their childhood, and as memories of that evening’s events come rushing back, and the dark angels make themselves known, they discover that what was meant to destroy them has instead opened their eyes to a world otherwise hidden from humankind.

Dawn Miller is an award-winning filmmaker and author who has written and produced several books, a music video and an urban teen drama. She lives in St. Louis with her teenage son and is currently at work on the graphic novel and feature film version of "The Watcher Chronicles".

This book is not one that I would've just found at a library, or read about on the internet, and wanted to buy, or pick up.
Just by reading about it - you can tell that it's going to be some sort-of fantasy type book and truthfully, fantasy is not my thing at all.
Starting this book was hard for me - I tried many times and couldn't get myself to read past the first couple of pages.
Then, one time, I knew that I had to open the book and actually read it.
So...I did.
I read the first chapter and then the second...and then the third...and the fourth and so on.
And once I was started, I couldn't get stopped. I read this book so fast.
Although it was fantasy and that isn't my favorite type of book, I absolutely LOVED this one.
And I can't even really tell you why. It was a suspenseful fantasy book, that made me want to keep turning the pages to see what was going to happen next.
So I did.
I'm not sure who to recommend this book to. Definitely to people who like fantasy books.
But if you're not a fantasy person...I don't know what to say. You might like it, you might not.
I liked it, but that might mean that you'd hate it. :P
Something that I really liked about this book - is that it had 5 main characters and in the book, it alternated chapters, between characters. So it was like getting into each of their perspectives.
At any rate, I enjoyed the book. You might too. :D
I can't wait to see if I can get more of this series to review! :)
