The Prophecy - Lynne Ewing

Rating : 3.5/5
Number of Pages : 273
Series : #11 Daughters of the Moon
Format : Teenage Fiction Novel
Reason for Reading : 10 10 10 Challenge, to continue with the series

The Daughters of the Moon are back, this time without Maggie to help and guide them. The Scroll is back and has been discovered by a museum. The curse means anyone who has contact with it for any length of time will become ill and die. Two guards have died already and the media is in a frenzy. Catty is the only one who is immune to it's curse being the true heir and must find a way to steal it back.

Her father also wants the scroll and it is time for Catty to finally meet him. He is evil and is in the inner circle of the Atrox living in Nefandus. She meets Kyle who has the reputation of being a bad boy, but she is drawn to him nonetheless. He has his own secrets and is somehow linked to Nefandus. Jimena is also still in the story despite the choice she made in a previous novel. She still gets visions of the future and has strange memories trying to resurface.

A fun story with some unexpected twists and turns. I'm glad Jimena is still around as she is my favourite character. There were some hints that Tianna is not all she seems so it will be interesting to see what happens in the final two books in the series.

This series looks interesting but the library doesn't have book one... Would starting with book 2 be terrible? I just want to see what I think of this series first...

Kailana - Yes you can start with the second one. They do tie in but the early ones work well stand alone.
