Prophecy Review

312 pages
Release date: January 2nd, 2013

The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms... is a girl with yellow eyes.
Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope... Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.

Review (ARC):
I feel like this novel could have been so much better than it is. I liked Kira, she's strong and one heck of a fighter. However, I feel like for a Demon Slayer she definitely took too much crap from people in the kingdom. Kira isn't very strong in her convictions or sure of herself as a person. The rest of the characters weren't very memorable or remarkable so that made their inclusion in the story seem boring at times. Other than that the action is pretty good and I'm curious to learn more about this strange Dragon King Prophecy. I can't particularly say I recommend reading this novel although it isn't a terrible read, I just hope that the next one is better than this one.
