In the battle against the Forces of Darkness that are attempting to release the evil high demon Shindar in an attempt to destroy the world, a young knight discovers that he is central to a prophecy long believed to be legend and only he can destroy the evil that threatens to destroy all that he loves.The authors writing style really draws you in to the action and the characters emotions. The battle scenes are so well described that you can almost see the people fighting as the dragons fly overhead. The chapters alternate between the points of view of various characters so you get a very deep insight into the world of Marithia and you can really understand each character.Prophecies Awakening is an epic fantasy featuring elves, dragons, vampires, sorceresses and demons and will be enjoyed by lovers of this genre. Despite sounding similar to many fantasy books it stood out to me as being very unique and I haven’t read many books that are like it. This book is very intriguing and a great set-up for a series.
