Prophecy Be Damned | [Patricia Lucas White]

Prophecy Be Damned

The burden of fulfilling a prophecy rests on the shoulders of a reluctant boy. As a scribe for the Guardians, the group of men and women dedicated to restoring the gods, Sam has been mistreated, ordered about, and mind-scrambled. Now he has to fulfill a prophecy? The boy would much rather damn it than do it. But the choice may not be his to make.

Publisher's Summary

Long ago, the youngest of the gods fell into the clutches of an ambitious mortal, a vain usurper who almost destroyed the world. The Elderkin, the old gods, imprisoned the mortal in the heart of a mountain and took away the young god's beauty, name, and tears. Then they fled the earth, leaving man godless. But they left a prophecy behind: that if the Nameless God's birthright is returned to him before the mortal breaks free, the Elderkin will return.

Now, the burden of this prophecy rests on the shoulders of a reluctant boy. As a scribe for the Guardians, the group of men and women dedicated to restoring the gods, Sam has been mistreated, ordered about, and mind-scrambled. Now he has to fulfill the prophecy? The boy would much rather damn it than do it. But the choice may not be his to make.

    "Don't waste your time!"

    I don't have much to say except this book was not very good. I didn't get it from start to finish. Many times I thought I would just shut it off and not go back but I kept on thinking that someting would change and that I would understand what was going on. But I never did. The oddest thing about the book was that the characters wouldn't stay consistent to who they were.One minute they were nice and the next they were evil.I just didn't get it and I love fantasy. Just don't waste your time on this one!

    "Prophecy Unfinished"

    This book was interesting. The concepts were intriguing, including unusual tiers of society and "outsiders" that were either not human or possibly just an uneducated slave race. The idea that Scribes hold a cherished position, and yet the young scribes are abused was ripe with possibilities. Then, just as things began to come to some sort of climax, and obviously a sequel was needed to begin to explain a huge number of loose ends..not just loose ends by gads, more like completely unfinished business, it abruptly ends, literally mid-tale. This book was written in 2007. So far no sign of that much needed sequel, until then, give this a pass.
