Tasia Armstrong is a very special Chosen. Forced to hide from her brethren, she makes a fateful decision one night to assist an injured Shape-shifter. Suddenly, Tasia finds herself forced out of the shadows, an unwitting pawn in the ongoing skirmish between rogue Shifters encroaching on Pack turf and the local Shape-shifter Pack led by a dangerous Alpha Protector. Thrown into the deep end, Tasia is forced to ally with the volatile and aggressive Shifters while she grapples to deal with the enigmatic Alpha who holds his fractious Pack together with a ruthless hand on the reins.
Grave danger threatens their world as a powerful wizard uses an old prophecy to divide the Chosen. When the Pack is asked to investigate the twenty-five year old mystery, Tasia is drawn deeper into the past. As danger closes in on her, Tasia must decide who to trust with the deadly secret she guards.
Surprising, unique, entertaining, The Prophecy is a humorous and modern take on werewolves, magic, and vampires. Petra Landon breaks stereotypes of these themes, creating layered characters that are flawed and real … Landon has a phenomenal history and system in place with the levels of the Wizards, the way the vampires operate versus how the Shifters run things, complete with jargon. The humor is spot on through the clever situations ….
Landon leaves an impression through the characters. A must-read for any urban fantasy lover!
The Prophecy is a fast paced and at times action intense story. Its packed with strong characters and backed by a highly engaging plot. What I enjoyed most was the completely new take on the paranormal world.
Landon does a marvelous job at world building and creating a place you can let our imagination go.
It appears that this is Landon’s first novel and as such is worthy of considerable praise as a debut novel. It is fast-paced, always exciting and draws the reader into a world that possibly exists all around us, without us knowing it. I think Landon is a bright new talent in the urban-fantasy world and I, for one, will be waiting with baited breath for the next offering from this uber-talented, debut author.
A great job and kudos to the author. A five-star winner from this reviewer.

The Prophecy by Petra Landon is an urban fantasy readers don’t want to miss … Her characters dragged me out of this world and straight into theirs. I loved it … The plot is intriguing … There’s a great cast of paranormal beings to love. The mystery was well-done. Kept me on my toes constantly … Deadly secrets and a fantasy that will keep readers entertained. I couldn’t stop reading it … Overall, I recommend The Prophecy to readers worldwide.
Great world building and amazing characters. I truly enjoyed this book … The Council, Shifters, Leeches, Guardians, Wizards, Humans.. YEAH! It’s so well thought through. There were no loose ends in the world building what so ever … The characters have so much depth because of the rich conversations they have together. Tasia is great, but the Alpha Protector stole my heart. He is so passionate 🙂 … Can’t wait for the second part to get me some answers.
