R. J. Larson (aka Kacy Barnett-Gramckow, author of the popular Genesis Trilogy) has just released Prophet, book one in her much-anticipated first-ever fantasy series. Popular fantasy author Donita K. Paul says this about Prophet: "This tale captured me and held me hostage to the very last page. Breathlessly waiting for the next book." Here's a brief description of this excellent book, followed by a direct order link:
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.
