    One thought on “The Sword and The Prophet”

    1. This book has been given to me by the author to review it.That was an unusual book! “The Sword and The Prophet” by Missy LaRae is the first book in the Children of Syren series and I have to admit that it was an interesting read! I didn’t know what to expect from this story and it was nice to realize that this book kept my interest from the beginning. I’m not used to such kind of stories but the author managed to create a unique world-building and interesting characters.The story begins [...]

    2. -- review originally posted on Willing to See LessMissy LaRae delivers a fresh and unique sci-fi YA novel with a very interesting world building and Syren lore. It was great to read about something that hadn't been done to death already in YA, no matter how interesting a spin the author puts on it. The world of LaRae's making is teeming with possibilities, even though the first book just sets the stage for what I hope will grow into an epic space battle in the books to come.The Sword and The Pro [...]

    4. This review was originally posted on Melissa's Midnight Musings on August 17, 2012. Click Here to Read it on my BlogI have to admit that when I was first reading this book, I didn't like it all that much. I was set to give it a two star review until about half or three quarters of the way through, but then it started to grow on me, and so I increased the rating.One thing that was somewhat off putting was the main characters accents. The characters were from the south and the accents were written [...]

    6. Where the magic happens: toughcriticbookreviewsspoSo here's the good, the bad, and a little bit of the uglyThe first half of the book was a beat down. I kept having to put the book down, come back, put the book down, come back, put the book down, comeyou get the point. Yes captain obvious, it got off to a rough start.By the time the alien theme is introduced, it seems totally misplaced and completely random. We go from the abusive, troubled youth of two teens to pods and space crafts. I think th [...]

    10. This novel was given to me by the author of the book, Missy Larea . It is the first book I have read about syrens. I was soo engrossed into the story, the main characters were easy to like from the moment that they are introduced in the story. The author created a great story that makes you imagine it all by just putting a few details of it. I really liked the whole story. Tyler and Lily are the best charecters besides Talon who I think I am going to love lol.I loved the bond that Rory has towar [...]

    11. Let me preface this review with this: I'm a thriller reader and writer and never thought I'd like a YA story. Missy LaRae changed that. The beginning grabs your attention as Lily and Tyler struggle to escape an oppressive life. That changed quickly and the reader (me) was cast into a mystical world of enchantment as Lily and Tyler are forced to discover whoor whatey really are.And Missy is no stranger to suspense as she builds the conflict and ever mounting peril that lurks around every corner. [...]

From the time they leave her house, their lives are never the same and the changes keep coming.I finished Missy LaRae's "The Sword and The Prophet" in a few hours. Every time I thought the twins, Lilli and Tyler, were safe at last, something new would happen and the revelations would keep coming.If this is Missy's first book, I can't wait to see what characters she creates for us next. I' [...]
