On the other side of death, is destiny.

She has big plans, and Liam Hale, her gorgeous new neighbor, isn’t going to affect them. But when Callie sees Liam beheading someone, she learns his family has a secret that will change everything. The Hales are Vikings, demi-gods who’ve been charged by The Fates to find their new destined leader.

Callie’s caught in the middle of a budding Norse apocalypse, in love with Liam Hale and desperate to protect her best friend…who the Hales believe is marked for transformation. Putting the clues together as fast as she can, can discovers she has the power to rewrite destiny, for herself and all humankind

What drew me to read Prophecy was the very beautiful cover. I really, really love it! I thought the description was interesting too—especially since I never read a paranormal YA book about Vikings who are demi-gods living alongside us. I was happy with the execution of the plot and I really liked the main character Callie.

Prophecy was a hodge podge of mythology, but I found it easy to pick up on what was happening. The pace was very quick and I liked that the action started from the get go. Although the Vikings were an interesting lot, I actually thought the scenes with the villains were the most intriguing. There definitely was some nail biting going on.

The love triangle was just okay for me and I actually have a hard time deciding on who the right guy should be for Callie. Justin was soooo nice and sweet, but I could tell he was being friend-zoned. Liam was a little jerky at first, but he ended up winning me over eventually. A poor normal guy like Justin probably would never stand a chance against a super hot, brooding Viking.

The book didn’t end on a cliffhanger, but there is definitely more story to tell. I look forward to see what the author has in store in future installments.

Rating: 4/5 Stars
