Kurzbeschreibung

"This tale captured me and held me hostage to the very last page. Breathlessly waiting for the next book."--Donita K. Paul, author of The Dragon Keeper Chronicles and The Chiril Chronicles

Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she's much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne's elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young.

Yet she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.

"Close your eyes, Ela of Parne. Close your eyes and you will see.
"
Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified, bad tempered, and only seventeen--not to mention that no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as the elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young.
"Istgard has turned their back on me. See the evil they do.
"
Yet after experiencing His presence, she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to follow the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. Here she meets Kien, a young Traceland ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela must surrender to her destiny...and determine how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.
"Will you accept the branch and speak my will? Will you be my prophet?
."" . . this tale captured me and held me hostage to the very last page. Breathlessly waiting for the next book."
Donita K. Paul, bestselling author of THE DRAGON KEEPER CHRONICLES
"The Istgard have renounced the Infinite, so he has called on Ela Roeh to become his prophet. She's not the most likely choice for the job, being 17 and unrefined. On top of that, she's female--a first time for a prophet. Still, she accepts the role and tries to bring His message to her war-torn nation. In her new role, she meets an ambassador named Kien, and they form an alliance. Soon, Ela must decide how to keep true to her promise while following her heart. Character-driven and suspenseful, this outstanding young adult speculative fiction launch does a great job of world building." --Library Journal (starred review)

Ich bin ein Vielleser und habe hohe Ansprüche. Fantasie und historische Romane gefallen mir selten, da die Autoren zu viele Worte brauchen, um die Welt, in der ihre Geschichte stattfindet, zu beschreiben.
Hier wurde ich sofort in die Handlung und die andere Welt gezogen, konnte entspannen und genießen, und es fehlt auch nicht der Schuss Humor, der für mich das Sahnehäubchen ist.

To be honest, I couldn't decide if I like the book or not.
It is well written, interesting, has a good story telling. It's a good fantasy book.

But the thing I had a problem with was that I couldn't decide if it was good for me as a Christian to read it or not.
The thing is, normally, with fantasy books, you seperate them completely from your every day life, because they are unreal and- yes, fantasy.
But with this book it's fantasy mixed with biblical knowledge, and that can be dangerous. I'm afraid it can confuse the reader to believe that it was like that in biblical times. But the truth is, we don't know. Some things in the book are from the bible, some are just fantasy.

In conclusion, I just want to warn you to be careful about it. Discern carefully between fantasy and biblical truth and you will profit by reading this book. I for example liked to read about the personal relationship and the way of communication between God and his prophet. I also liked and found it helpful, that there are bible study questions at the end of the book, because it helps newly-reborn-christians and people who don't know the bible so well to discern what was fantasy and what not.

All in all, a good book to read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Surprisingly Good 21. August 2012
Von Tamara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I don't normally like overtly Christian works of fiction, even though I am a Christian. Typically, I find them to be preachy and filled with unremarkable, overly-good characters, and unbelievable story lines. However, I found this book to be surprisingly fun and a good read. The writing was very good. The characters were believable and likable. And, while I *thought* I might know how things were going to end, there were enough surprises that I wasn't sure about it (and still am not, since this was the first book in a series.)

I think this book could be appealing even to those who are not Christian (or Jewish, since it has a strong Old-Testament feel). I recommend it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Completely Enjoyed It--Wide Audience Appeal 13. April 2012
Von Melissa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Infinite's vision caused her to faint; the suffering and death beyond comprehension. But this vision is just the beginning of Ela's journey as a servant of the Infinite--a journey that will take her to three different countries to plead with them to return to the Infinite. However, Ela has little hope of returning to her home and living a long life. After all, there's a faithful saying in Parne, "A silver-haired prophet has failed." By accepting the Infinite's offer, she knows her task will be difficult and that she'll face ridicule and suffering along the way, but despite the hardships facing her, the thought of living without his presence is unbearable. In a captivating tale, reminiscent of Old Testament history, Prophet vividly portrays the story of a young woman seeking to fulfill her role as a servant of the Infinite.

Let me just start off by saying I love this book. It grabbed my attention from the very start and held it all the way to the end. This is a relatively short book at only 250 pages, but within these pages is excellent action and a beautiful display of a prophet's courageous service. While reading Prophet, it isn't difficult to imagine Ela walking a path similar to Jeremiah or the antagonists she faces being the kings of Israel.

Prophet is listed as an adult fantasy novel, but it'll easy appeal to a much broader audience. With its young heroine and light descriptions, the story moves at the rapid pace found in many young adult novels. Those who like bible fiction will enjoy the strong Old Testament feel while readers of speculative and supernatural books will most likely find Prophet enjoyable for the strong interaction between Ela, the Infinite, and the spiritual beings. This is a very versatile book, with wide appeal, but instead of feeling as though it is undecided on a genre, it embodies many genres.

While I enjoyed the story being told, what hooked me was the interplay between Ela and the Infinite. It brought to mind the relationship between Thomas and Elyon in Ted Dekker's Circle books. I adored Ela and the Infinite's dialog as well as Ela learning that she might not want an answer to every question that pops into her head. I was hopelessly drawn to the Infinite's voice, finding it easy to imagine his word being God's words. The tone and inflection in the Infinite's dialog fit with what is easily imagined in scripture and I looked forward to reading more of their interaction.

My only complaint is truly a personal quirk. While Ela is obedient to God and I admire her compassion, I really felt like she should have agreed with God's judgment rather than continuing to dislike it. In our culture God is often portrayed as an angry, jealous, demanding, cruel God and many people point to the Old Testament for their ideas. He is blamed for all that is wrong in this world though we're given freewill and make our own decisions. While I think Larson does a nice job of showing the Infinite's willingness to extend mercy until the last minute, what the reader never get, is Ela truly being `okay' with the Infinite's judgment. She wants them to repent, which should be our attitude. However, I really wanted Ela to accept God's judgment in a less grudging manner. Of course, this is the first book in this series and perhaps I should be more patient and wait for her character to evolve.

Over all, I loved this book. It is highly engaging, moves at a nice pace, imaginative, and spiritually beautiful. The Old Testament feel is well executed and easily reminds the reader of Israel's monarchy/prophet relationship. Prophet is the first book in the Books of the Infinite series and I can't wait for the next one!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fantasy world felt underdeveloped, but story helped keep interest 31. Dezember 2012
Von Jonathon D. Burns - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Ela of Parne is only 17 years old, yet the Infinite has chosen her to be His prophet. She is the first female prophet of Parne and she knows that prophets die young. That is not exactly an encouraging thought. Ela is called to Istgard, where the people have turned away from the Infinite. In a story strongly influenced by the judges and prophets of the Old Testament, Ela must convince the people to turn from their sinful ways or be doomed.

Joining her is her younger sister, Tzana, who suffers a disease causing her to age pre-maturely. She also meets up with Kien, an ambassador from Traceland who also seeks to save his people from Istgard. Will Ela faithfully serve the Infinite, knowing it will likely lead to her death, or will her feelings win out?

It didn't take long for me to be sucked into the story. R.J. Larson's opening was very descriptive, and I could easily envision what was taking place. The introduction of Ela also gave me a clear picture. The dialogue was smooth, and flowed easily. Each character was fairly distinct in their speaking style, making it easy to follow the many long sections of dialogue when the speaker was not always clearly identified.

As I read further, the descriptiveness of events stayed clear, though descriptions of the world seemed muddled at times. At first I thought this was going to be set in Biblical times, but quickly found it to be a fantasy story set in a Middle Eastern-ish realm. There are several different groups of people, but at times I had a hard time understanding the full differences between them. With the exception of the horse like `destroyers,' I had a hard time visualizing some of the strange creatures Larson introduces. Though a fantasy story, the world didn't feel as if it needed brand new creatures being created.

While I always had a clear picture of the lead characters, at times they seem a bit too perfect. Ela doesn't always understand the Infinite's reasoning, but she still follows his commands. She also has a bit of a temper, but that tends to be underplayed, and when she is angry, it tends to be more of a righteous anger. She lacked any real flaw and any changing she went through tended to happen near the beginning, when she first became the prophet. For the rest of the book, she seems relatively unchanged. I did find Kien to be an interesting character, but he had more of a supporting role.

Though not a perfect book, Prophet did hold my interest throughout, and I liked the ties it seemed to have with the prophets and judges from the Bible. I would be interested in reading the sequel, Judge.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ARC reading 7. April 2012
Von Nikka321 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was really quite shocked with how much I enjoyed this book. Being an athiest, and personally finding blind faith in "god" a little disturbing, I wasn't sure I even wanted to read this book. But I decided to give it shot, and I am so glad that I did, because I would have missed a true treasure otherwise.

This story is the first installment in the Books of the Infinite series, and follows the trials and tribulations of Ela, the newest, and only known female Prophet of the Infinite.

The style of writing was very easy to read and follow, which can not always be said for books in an imaginary world setting. It flowed really well, and quite truthfully hooked me in almost from the first page. I anxiously await the next book

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thoroughly enjoyed it 5. Oktober 2013
Von S. Harvey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've read the complete trilogy, and it is probably some of the best Christian fantasy I have read in a long time. I personally found the main characters to be well-drawn --good people, but not perfect-- and the plot seemed to flow realistically. I recommend this to anyone, even if you don't believe you would be into Old Testament allegory.
