Onmykindle : The Prophecy

Onmykindle reviews The Prophecy
June 02, 2017

Aside from the lush setting, the artful premise, the incredible society, and the amazing action and suspense, there was an aspect of the story that I found myself enjoying: the romantic tension blooming between Tasia and the Alpha. There is a very subtle undercurrent between these two characters throughout most of the book that doesn’t become obvious until near the end of the book …

The Prophecy is not a quick read, but it is well worth it to be drawn into a spectacular story. If you enjoy the world- and character-building in Anne Bishop’s books or you simply enjoy supernatural/paranormal stories that will suck you into another world, you will enjoy this book!

•Complex and mysterious main character with a hidden past. Although some of her secrets are revealed in this book, I think even at the end of this book there is some secrets she is still holding onto tightly – can’t wait to find out what they are in future books.

•Through-out this book we get a ever growing cast of secondary character which are developed in such a great way. All of them have their own personalities and characteristics, such a great group which are deep and complex as individual characters but to read about their interactions just highlights their complexities and I feels as though I got to know them just as much as the main character.

When will the second book be available??? Definitely a good read. Hopefully the main female lead starts embracing her powers and stop hiding.

Reader’s Favorite : The Prophecy

Reader’s Favorite awards 5 stars to The Prophecy
May 10, 2017

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. Tasia describes the Shifters as aggressive, constantly fighting the beast within – they are aggressive and short tempered – but they’re also loyal, friendly, bright, and witty. Raoul is a bit of a brute and has a strong willed personality that he uses to run the Pack, but he’s also fiercely loyal. 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, including one of my favorite scenes where Tasia is on the plane with the Pack, and they discover she’s a vegetarian. The idea of a vegetarian eating with werewolves is still making me laugh. Landon leaves an impression through the characters. A must-read for any urban fantasy lover!

May 5, 2017

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.

These are just but a few words that best describe The Prophecy by Petra Landon. It’s an urban fantasy set within a world that has many layers that unfold beautifully. From the well developed and ever evolving characters, the back stories as well as the main story, which weaves in and out, and paced perfectly. All of these amazing points create a delicate balance, bringing about a brilliant and memorable start to a series that will no doubt continue to be captivating and exciting.

Author Grant Leishman reviews The Prophecy
April 19, 2017

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. I found myself deeply engaged page after page. The plot is intriguing. It has action, adventure, and romance …

Petra Landon has phenomenal skills. Her characters dragged me out of this world and straight into theirs. I loved it. The Prophecy is the first novel to this new series. I can’t wait to read the next book …

Deadly secrets and a fantasy that will keep readers entertained. I couldn’t stop reading it … Overall, I recommend The Prophecy to readers worldwide.

Books Feed My Soul – Edition 4

Sounds of inspiration from around the world


Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.

– Ludwig van Beethoven

This weeks’s inspiration is music from around the world. I have very eclectic taste in music and I always find music to be a fantastic way to relax and to inspire the creative mind.

Welcome to the fourth edition of Books Feed My Soul, where we celebrate our imagination and everything that feeds it. This week, I had my first editorial review from one of the few book bloggers that agreed to review The Prophecy. Esther Dauvillier of BitIntoBooks was kind enough to fit me into her tight schedule and was a pleasure to work with. You can read her review of The Prophecy here.

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu


 

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.

– Lao Tzu

The above quote aptly describes Yunupingu’s voice to me. It is powerful and haunting. I could listen to his Bapa every day. That most of us cannot understand the lyrics of his songs seems irrelevant. Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu is an indigenous Australian musician who sings mostly in the Yolŋu languages and occasionally in English. Born blind in a small island off the coast of northern Australia, his music took Australia by storm with his album Gurrumul. I discovered him while listening to another fantastic indigenous Australian band, Yothu Yindi, which means mother and child. Two songs from his debut solo album Gurrumul are featured below.

Bapa : I don’t know how to describe this song. I have no words. I believe when you hear it, you’ll know what I mean.

 

Wiyathul : This is the song that brought Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu mainstream attention.

 

In the Mood for Love


Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.

– Victor Hugo

In the Mood for Love is a a Hong Kong film directed by Wong Kar-wai. It premiered on 20 May 2000 at the 2000 Cannes Film Festival,  where it was nominated for the Palme dd’Or with Tony Leung being awarded Best Actor. The film’s original Chinese title, meaning “the age of blossoms” or “the flowery years” is a Chinese metaphor for the fleeting time of youth, beauty and love. The soundtrack features absolutely haunting music and if you see it with the stunning visuals, it will evoke feelings hard to articulate.

Yumeji’s Theme by Shigeru Umebayashi is spectacular. There are multiple variations of it in the film. This particular theme is also called the Angkor Theme which seems particularly fortuitous since Books Feed My Soul just featured the majestic temple.

 

Director Wong Kar-wai convinced Nat King Cole to sing for the film since his mother was a huge fan. Here’s Nat King Cole singing in Spanish for In the Mood for Love.

 

Pink mArtini


If music be the food of love, play on.

– William Shakespeare

Portland, Oregon based Pink Martini is one of my favorite bands in the world. I have been a fan since I first heard them in college at a local music festival and was blown away by their music. They call themselves the ‘little orchestra’  that sings songs from around the world.

Amado Mio : The first song I heard from Pink Martini from their album Sympathique. Then, it was lead singer China singing it. This version has Storm Large who is equally fantastic.

 

Pink Martini singing a traditional Romanian folk song.

I love so much of their music that it is hard to choose but here’s Pink Martini with Donde Estas Yolanda, sung by original lead singer, China Forbes.

Souad Massi


 

Music is the universal language of mankind.

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

 

This fantastic French-Algerian singer of Berber descent has an amazing voice and sings in six languages. Her debut album Deb (Heartbroken) has some fantastic songs.

Ghir Enta (I love you) : My favorite song from her album Deb.

Paris : Singing in French with Marc Lavoine

Ya Qalbi from her album Deb.

 

Loreena Mckenitt


 

Where words fail, music speaks.

– Hans Christian Anderson

 

She’s a Canadian singer who sings Celtic music. My favorite by far is her version of the haunting Tang to Evora.

 

Netflix has a recording of a live concert by Loreena McKenitt at the majestic Alhambra in Granada, Spain. It is worth it just to see the visuals of Alhambra at night. The images evoked memories of my own visit to Andalusia and the breath-taking Alhambra.

 


 

You were born an original. Don’t die a copy.

–  John Mason 

As John Mason reminds us so eloquently, follow your dreams. That is what we are all meant to do. So remember, try and make the time to do the things that fire your imagination and make you happy. Go out there and read, write, create, draw, listen, sing, dance, talk, do and be.

MINDFULNESS TIP

 

A few easy ways to incorporate mindfulness into your day. All it needs is five minutes.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

– Lao Tzu

Slow down and smell the Roses

In our hectic daily lives, we are always on the move. When we catch our breath, it is between finishing up something and heading somewhere. Make a conscious decision to stop for just five minutes in your day –  slow down and look around you. Is a flower blooming somewhere, do you feel good about something, can you hear someone’s laughter around you? Just a reminder to stop and savor the moment. My yoga teacher calls it ‘being present on the mat‘ but it applies to every day life too.

Take a few slow breaths

Find a quiet corner somewhere, close your eyes, and breath in and out slowly. It will calm your body and mind. Breathing deeply helps your physical well-being and helps center you. Do not worry if at first it seems like you have to work at it. If you practice this regularly, eventually this will come naturally and help calm your mind. This is especially useful on particularly stressful days.

Take a few minutes for yourself

Find the time to savor something in your life, to think about something you enjoyed (a book or music or a funny article you read that morning), or just to enjoy some chocolate or a cup of coffee. Make the time to do something that brings you joy. And slow down while you do it to savor the moment.

Stretch your body

Take a short break to stretch your body. If your job involves a desk, take a break to stretch your legs, go for a short walk or just find a quiet corner to stretch whatever parts of your body feel stiff that day. For me, I find it helpful to close my eyes for a few seconds to simply check in. Usually, that is a great opportunity for your body to let you know if something feels tight. Make sure to gently stretch your legs, neck, shoulders or whatever feels tight.
