Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Bishop Files, a new trilogy from the New York Times best-selling author Kay Hooper...

Months ago Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn't control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah's mind.

It begins with Sarah's home being destroyed by fire - an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah's confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing a woman who can see what others can't. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it's only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide. Only then will they begin to discover the scope of a terrifying conspiracy so deep and complex they can trust almost no one.

good book narration was not so good

I enjoyed the book. Not one of the best of hers. The narrator was female and her attempt to change her voice to a male's was laughable. It would have been more enjoyable if she had not tried.

Good Book, terrible narrator doing the voice!

What disappointed you about The First Prophet?

I haven't read the entire book, in fact I couldn't even get past the first chapter because the narrator's voice is so annoying. I can't stand it when a female narrator attempts to do a male voice. It would have been much better with a male and female narrating this book. I was looking forward to this because I'm an avid Noah Bishop fan, however, I'm going to have to buy the e-book to get through the entire story. <br/><br/>In the future I'll make sure to stay away from any audiobook with this narrator.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The story doesn't need to be changed, good book so far, however, two different narrator's; one male and one female would have been more enjoyable.

What didn’t you like about Joyce Bean’s performance?

Her voice is annoying; especially when she attempts to do a male voice.

What character would you cut from The First Prophet?

None.

Move along. This one is a real disappointment.

Oh, brother. I forced myself to wait 'til the end of this book to write a review. I kept hoping it would get better and it never did. I have read or listened to many of Kay Hooper's books and have enjoyed them all. This one was ridiculous and I think the narrator made it worse. I don't want to just beat up on the narrator or the story, but I would highly recommend you go find one of Hooper's early books/series and listen to that one. And definitely make sure they are narrated by someone else. If there are more in this series (since Hooper tends to write in groups), I won't buy them, that is for sure.

Great mystery with paranormal

I enjoyed the plot. Ms. Hooper writes so naturally that it seems normal that most of us would have paranormal gifts. My one issue with the story is that the heroine seems a bit too frightened and naive, over and over again. I don't have to have a strong female lead, but I do believe the shrinking violet is a touch overdone.
I'm not sure if either character will have repeating roles in this series, but I hope so.
Ms. Hooper doesn't disappoint because all of the paranormal books of hers which I've read, have been very easy to suspend belief. Her books also have a bit of romantic tension, but it isn't a huge part of the plot. I believe you will be fully satisfied with the series.

Story dragged

On the run was too long. The story didn't seem to go anywhere. I also agree with previous reviewers male voices need work.

A very interesting storyline with suspense ,mystery and romance woven smoothly together

Would have given a 5 star overall if a male was used for the male parts. The
female narrator in not al all good for the male parts. Storyline is very interesting and I like the love story woven in.

A little disappointed

I was really looking forward to reading this book, but sadly it just missed the mark for me. I felt the story line moved very slow compared to her other books.
