Kurzbeschreibung

New York Times and USA Today Best-selling paranormal romance author Felicity Heaton presents

Prophecy: Child of Light (Vampires Realm Romance Series Book 1)
A vampire unlike any other, Prophecy lives life in the dark until the night she encounters a sensual dark-haired vampire who is both her enemy and the man who will change her world forever.

A loyal hunter for the Aurorea bloodline, Valentine is bound by duty to report her as the vampire of the prophecy, but he cannot shake the vision of them he saw in her blood. Torn between duty and desire, and determined to uncover the truth, Valentine goes against his order to execute her and kidnaps the beautiful Caelestis female instead.

Thrust into a terrifying world where the seven bloodlines and the Law Keepers are hunting her and her only hope for survival is Valentine, Prophecy battles her temptation to surrender to her illicit attraction to him and fights for her future.

When she discovers her extraordinary destiny, will she be strong enough to embrace it and stop a deadly war from igniting?

The first novel in the Vampires Realm series and the best selling Prophecy Trilogy, Prophecy: Child of Light, is part one in an epic tale of forbidden love that is sure to capture your heart and leave you craving more.

3.0 von 5 Sternen ok read 7. April 2013
Von Wiebke B.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was looking forward to this as I have read another book by this author before, but was kind of dissapointed when I reached the end. Better make that part one of the book, because although this is really really long, the story line does not get resolved in the end and you are left hanging with cliffhangers on all the major plot points. The romance portion was actually more chaste than most young adult romances are. The cover of the book is very misleading. If you are fine with that you will most likely enjoy the rest of the story.
Language: There are occasional typos, which I can live with. But I would have happily cut half of the inner monologues. They were annoyingly repetitive. And I don't mean that something gets picked up a couple of chapters later, which is ok for me if it doesn't happen too often. This was one paragraph following the other. It made me track back, because I thought I must have fallen asleep reading, but then found out that this was in fact all on the pages. If these repetitions had been edited out, this would have been a 4-5 star book for me and I would have bought the sequels for sure, because the characters and the story were really compelling. As it is, I'd rather not.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Teil 1 der Prophecy Trilogie 15. November 2011
Von Filerimos
Format:Kindle Edition
Child of Light ist das erste Buch der Prophecy Trilogie und der Auftakt einer wunderbaren Vampir-/Werwolf-/Hexen-Reihe. Ich bin durch Zufall auf diese Buchreihe gestoßen umd bin sehr froh darüber. Frau Heatons Fantasywelt ist mitreißend, dunkel und erotisch. Ihre Charaktere sind komplex und gut ausgearbeitet.

Prophecy: Child of Light, Prophecy: Caelestis and Aurorea und Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising sollten aufeinanderfolgend gelesen werden. Diese drei Bände sind untrennbar, da in diesen Büchern Prophecys Geschichte und letztentlich auch ihre Bestimmung erzählt wird.
Spellbound ist ein zusätzliches Zuckerl der Autorin und die Leser, die schon immer wissen wollten, wie Prophecy ihre Liebe zu Valentin und Venturi handhabt - ohne dabei ihre Liebe zu Valentin zu verraten - werden es in dieser Kurzgeschichte erfahren.

Zum Inhalt:
Prophecy ist eine einzigartige Vampirin und führt ein behütetes und von der Außenwelt isoliertes Leben. Eines Nachts schleicht sich Prophecy davon, um sich zum ersten Mal an einem Menschen zu nähren. Dabei wird sie von einem fremden Vampir beobachtet: Valentine. - Diese Begegenung ändert Prophecys Leben grundlegend und konfrontiert sie mit einer Prophezeihung, in der sie die Hauptrolle spielt.

Diese führt dazu, dass sich Prophecy plötzlich auf der Flucht befindet, da sich die Vampir Clans, aufgrund der Prophezeihung, gegen sie wenden, mit dem Ziel sie zu töten. Prophecy, plötzlich nicht mehr isoliert, lernt im Laufe ihrer Flucht mehr über sich selbst und ihre Vergangenheit.

Und Valentine? Zwiegespalten zwischen seinem Pflichtgefühl gegenüber seinem Clan und der Anziehung, die Prophecy auf ihn ausübt, entscheidetlich letztendlich für Prophecy; verhilft ihr zur Flucht und begleitet sie auf ihren Weg.

3.0 von 5 Sternen It has problems, but it's good. 29. März 2010
Von DelusionalAngel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I think I'll start this review with what I didn't like. It felt as though there was some questionable editing. Not something I usually notice, errors happen, even with good editors. Humans make and miss mistakes no matter how perfect we'd like them to be and who am I to complain, I'm neither an editor nor a writer. Still, when *I* am noticing them, it's probably a problem. (Ex. "She looked around her, hers eyes darting over every face...." Hers eyes?).

Also it felt like the author struggled to find words at times. I was starting to get a serious case of déjà vu about the hundredth time that she knitted certain characters brows to express an emotion. I was also left wondering how many times one could intimate something. There were times that things like this made me want to finally just say: you can use other words. It's actually unfortunate as I do feel that those things distracted from a fairly decent story. Which leads to what I did like, the story itself.

Prophecy is a vampire who has been locked up in her home, for... well she doesn't seem to know how long. In fact, she doesn't seem to know much of anything, including why all of the other vampires get to hunt whereas she does not. When she asks her mother when she'll be allowed to hunt with the others in their family, she is told only that her time will be soon. Impatient, she sneaks out, meeting Valentine. Valentine being a fellow Vampire. A forbidden fellow vampire as he belongs to a different bloodline. The rules are very clear in this vampire world. Vampires do not consort with vampires of differing bloodlines. Except in their case, it appears they may not have a say in the matter, as we quickly learn that perhaps her name is not just a name. There is a prophecy and depending on who you ask it's either about the fate of vampires or maybe of the entire world. And yes, Prophecy is smack dab in the center of said prophecy. The problem with this prophecy is that there are two takes on it. Valentine will have to choose between staying true to his own family by killing Prophecy or risking his own life (and hers) to find out which version is the truth.

And now onto what I'm on the fence about. Generally when reading a series I like for the book to be its own book. Sure, there will be continuing story lines, but each book should stand on its own. This is not really that. It ends with a major cliffhanger. I'd prefer that not to happen until later in the series once I'm more invested in it. I feel as though I HAVE to keep reading, like it or not, as this adventure isn't yet done. Luckily, despite its flaws I really do care about the characters enough to WANT to know what happens, otherwise I'd be ticked that I'd have to buy the next book if I want to know about how the adventure from this book ends, not to mention the fate of a major character is left up in the air.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting idea bogged down by superfluous humdrum 19. August 2012
Von M. Lowe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
There are two things guaranteed to leave me with a bad taste in my mouth when it comes to romance novels/series:

1. Failure to note somewhere on the outside of the book that the romance is not adult in nature.
2. Failure to complete a novel. Regardless whether a book is part of a series or not, each installment should resolve the majority of plot arcs. If a series has an overarching plot across many stories, then each book should identify, address, and resolve whatever section of the broader plot it introduces.

This book failed at both. This book is long, some 5800+ locations. That is plenty of time to establish the tale, introduce the opening of the overarching series plot, resolve the initial conflicts between the hero and heroine, before revealing the next part of the broader story at the end of the book. Instead, Heaton spends most of the book filling it with superfluous jaunting about Europe where, other than the occasional fight to break up the monotony, the reader is underwhelmed with repetitive scenes of the hero and heroine suffering inner monologues about how they feel about the other person - all the while, "awkwardly" stealing glances at one another, avoiding any actual conversations about how they feel, and generally not getting to the point of things. Or they spend it rehashing all the information, which isn't much, they already have and contemplating all that the other has given up for the quest. Again, not with each other but in their own thoughts. And then, at the very end of the book, I kid you not, after a terrible revelation of a horrible mistake in judgment, Heaton actually tacked on "The End". What? The story abruptly stops - that's it. Of course, the tale will be continued, but after the length of the first book, and its failure IMO to actively move the narrative much, I'm simply not inclined to continue.

To the second point, I want to be clear; I have no problem with romance novels that avoid adult situations or keep everything besides chaste kissing behind closed doors. I choose not to spend money on those kinds of novels but I don't think others have to share my views. For folks who enjoy a romance that has no completion whatsoever - neither in culmination nor even in a happy for now style of leave off - perhaps you won't be nearly as irritated and disappointed as I am. But as I noted above, easily a third of this book could - and should IMO - have been cut out. It didn't move forward the plot, it didn't give the reader any new information. If that bit of unnecessary flotsam were removed, perhaps Heaton might have been inclined to give readers a grown up romance wherein the main characters acted more like(at least in the case of the hero) a several hundred year old vampire who'd been around the block, so to speak. The heroine, I could understand, until about halfway through the story. At which point, she sets her mind to the task at hand and matures by leaps and bounds. Facing certain death, then, and especially considering all the talk in the heroine's own mind about how important the hero is to her - I expected at least a touching - if not graphic - intimacy. A last grasp, a tight grip, of the protagonists on each other. Guess I have to wait until the next book? The last? Never? So let down.

The overall writing is above average and the world building compelling. But a book would have a difficult path winning me over if it suffered under just one of the above pet-peeves of mine. Being guilty of both, from this reader's perspective, means that I simply cannot recommend it.

1.0 von 5 Sternen not worth your time! 2. Januar 2012
Von Mitchsmom - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was almost too painful to finish. I was going to stop reading the book after the first 30 pages, but thought it has to get better, right? Wrong! The premise behind the book seems intriguing. A "vampire" girl has been hidden away by her family. She has never been allowed to leave the mansion she resides in. Then one night she decides to go out hunting on her own and encounters a male vampire from another family. He feeds from her and the rest, as they say, is history. He discovers she is the girl from the prophecy. She will destroy their kind. Of course, she has no idea who or what she is, a vampire/witch hybrid. Who is able to do magic when no other vampire can. He goes home to tell his master that he has found her, but wait, something in her blood calls to him. He can't tell his master, but he must. And so begins his turmoil. He tells his master of her existence and they go to kill her. On the way there he has a change of heart and leaves his master and kidnaps the girl. Of course he does this in secret hoping to be able to return to his family. The rest of the book is filled with him keeping her safe and helping her find her destiny, but not wanting to help her. He is compelled to help her because of the blood he has taken from her. Some romance! He doesn't want to be with her, is barely nice to her, but feels he has to stay with her. Sure there are a few looks between them, but he spends most of the book wanting to go home and then resigns himself to the fact he has committed a grievous sin and can never go home. Eventually he realizes he loves her, how I don't know, because he's barely tolerated her the whole book. There was so much description in this book it became tedious! The author spent too much time describing places and objects that she didn't take the time to connect you with the characters. There is a reason this book is on sale for $.99. Not even worth that!

2.0 von 5 Sternen Needs improvement 6. Mai 2010
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have two big problems with this book: the plot and the writing.

The story tells of a prophecy, where one female vampire will either kill or save all demons. So then, we have the hero and heroine running around like chickens with their heads cutoff trying to find out what this prophecy is about, with all the vampires after them. What I don't understand is why does this world need saving or killing? The author was unable to convey what is so bad about this world that it needs apocalyptic battles to fix it. I don't get the sense of urgency eventhough the book keep mentioning it. The writing is choppy so the flow of the story is affected.

The other problem is the author failed to show the connection btw the hero and the heroine. I feel like I'm reading a story of two teenagers trying to find love. And she repeats a lot of things, like "I should not fall for her because she's not of my line" and "I should hate him b/c he's an enemy" throughout the book. Geezzze, I got it the first 100th times I read it.

My other problem is the author used "frown" in almost every other sentence to describe an emotion. The character is confuse/concern/angry/etc, so he/she "frowns". I wish the author would go to a thesaurus and get another adjective. Oh yeah, and they look down to the floor to emphasize the seriousness of the frowns.

This is an ok book if you have no other book to read and needs something to read while waiting for better books to come out. The price is phenomenon, so you won't' feel too chipped if you don't like the book. That was my thought when I bought the first and second book in this series at the time. I don't think that such a smart move now. Since I've already bought it, I'll plow on. I hope it's better than the first.
