Overview

Leaving behind the destruction of their world the Pinnerite people find their way to Earth. Seeking refuge from an evil force, the leader of the alien race convinces Earth's major governments to allow colonization of Antarctica. The evil seems to have followed the Pinnerite people though, and now Earth is racing to prepare for a war they can not win.
After years of battle, technology is all but destroyed, borders are erased and redrawn, and strange creatures roam the continents. The Pinnerite people break the seclusion of their Antarctic Colony to try and regain what has been lost. According to an ancient prophecy one of their own youth will join with six others from around the world to combat and defeat the driving force behind the evil that permeates civilization.
Arra is marked from birth to be the first of the Seven. She travels to Australia to find Moose, the second in a group that will bring hope back to the people of Earth. Together they find five other young men and women that work together and risk their lives for something that was prophesied over 500 years ago.
The first obstacle is finding a new place for the people of the Antarctic colony, as it is slowly losing power and life support. Australia is the obvious choice but the continent is ruled by a ruthless family of Emperors, who have magic at their disposal.
The battle for Australia brings Arra's own magical abilities, which almost lead to her death.
This is a fast paced novel, with plenty of excitement and drama. Characters are full of personality, and mystery. The battle for Australia is just the beginning of the adventures for the young heroes, and the war to win the world will test their resolve and friendship.

    Incredible Read!!

    When I first saw this book, I was really curious as to what this author would bring to the now popular Angel/Fallen Angel genre. I was looking for something different, so I bought it on my ebook, and boy was I ever surprised! This book was a rollercoaster ride the entire way! It started off at a climax and never let go.. it keeps the reader drawn with cliffhangers at the end of the chapters, that you have to keep reading it. There are some chapters that are short and some that are a little longer, but I was never disappointed. The author did an excellent job in creating the characters. I love how she would flip flop chapters with each character so that the reader could get to know them.. they are all different but all so very important in the end. This book kept me up late at night wanting to know more and more about what was going to happen.. The story about good vs. evil is of course in a lot of books out on the shelves now, but this book was much deeper than that. It comes to show that if you have faith in the one and only Creator, that no evil will be able to touch you.. the journey that these characters went through to find out who they really are, is a journey that i'm sure all of us can relate to in a more metaphoric way.. Get this book.. it will be well worth it..

    Frustrated

    Nightmares and mysterious paintings are challenging Sam Becker's hold on reality. He also seems to be incapable of remembering certain things about his childhood, which he attributes to the nightmares. One event in his past could hold the key. He gets in touch with the four people who may know; the four people that was with him, and finds out it's happening to them too. The answers lead them to the knowledge of something much more important though; they are Watchers. They have to save humanity from the war of the fallen angels.
    I want to start off by saying that this is an ARC copy and not the final print.
    I always get excited when an author brings originality to an old plot. Ms. Miller accomplishes that. There was action, mystery, and drama to keep it entertaining. In my opinion though, there was too much clutter. There were a lot of characters and I couldn't keep them clear. I had a hard time remembering which back story went with which one. I found myself going back to reread sentences because I was confused too many times. I got frustrated with the fact that I could have really enjoyed this book, but again that's just my opinion. I know this is a series and I will read the second just because I do have hope for this story.

    Reality is merely an illusion ~ You must open your eyes to see the truth!

    THE WATCHERS CHRONICLES: THE PROPHECY By Dawn Miller Reality is merely an illusion ~ Albert Einstein Something sinister was after them, something that only they could see. Something from their past. But the memory from childhood - 7 years earlier was buried- buried deep. Will they remember what has been forgotten in time to save themselves? Jonah Becker's world has gone from bad to worse. His parents were murdered. His brother, Sam is dead. And now someone or something is out to kill him and his friends. Jonah and his friends are caught in the endless struggle between good and evil because they have a special gift - the gift of sight! The first six chapters seem slow as the key characters are introduced, but the story quickly draws you in with each successive chapter. When THE PROPHECY ends you are left wanting more. This book will appeal to young adult readers who want a book with a supernatural twist while still dealing with real life situations that teens face. Some of the issues that are dealt with include drugs, alcohol, teen parents, and gangs. This is a "can't put it down" book and perfect for a long weekend!

    Brand New - epic tale of good verses evil!

    This is a brand new novel to the reading scene. Less than a hundred people have read this novel but they all loved it and can't wait for the sequel to come out in summer 2011. If you like action, adventure, suspense, suprise, magic, and sword play, this is a great read for you and a great gift for anyone. Suitable for ages 10 yrs. and up!

    Slow Start

    This book was quite difficult to stick with in the beginning, but the further it got along the more it kept my attention. Not the best book I've read, but by far not the worst. I'm glad I took the time and patience to read all the way to the end.

    I Also Recommend:

    Expected so much more.

    From the description of this book of humans with prophetic abilities, and the war between good and fallen angels, I thought this story would keep me on my toes. But I can honestly say I had no idea where I was through most of this book.

    It centers around five people who grew up together and are realizing that they have certain abilities (which are never really defined, which adds to the confusion). The one ability they do know, is that they can see the fallen angels which are invisible to the rest of the world.

    They can also see good angels. These good angels are frustrating because they never show up until the author has worked the characters in such a corner that they can't get out. Then, poof, they appear and save the day, without explanation. Why didn't they just prevent the predicament in the first place?!

    Plus, the characters never talk to each other. Hey! I just saw a fallen angel and it's freaking me out! No reason to tell any of my friends who are also going through weird stuff! There's bad angels trying to kill us? Let's split up! Need I say more? All the tropes of this genre are here with nothing but frustration along the way. I was one-third through the book and knew how it was going to end. (sigh)

    The book is published by Zondervan, which is why I thought it would have more Christian elements, especially a redemptive look at each character and their personal battles with sin. The main character idolizes Ozzy Osbourne and never steps back to think to himself "hey, maybe this music is one of the ways the fallen angels kept me blind." That would have been nice character development.

    I rarely give harsh reviews but I just can't find too much I like in this book. Sorry.

    review taken from One Book At A Time http://onebooktime.blogspot.com

    My husband would probably say I'm being generous giving this two butterflies after listening to me contemplate giving up or finishing it. I'm sure others like this story. I found it to be a way to similar to Stephen King's It in the beginning. And no matter how terrifying fallen angels should be, it's not written to be more scary that Pennywise. In fact, I had a heck of a time figuring out who were the good guys and who were the bad ones. The story alters between far to many view points to lessen any confusion. I didn't connect with any of the characters. The events were all over the place. And then ending just sort of happened with the characters still not having any real clue about what's happening to them. I don't think I will be continuing this series unless the future books happen to fall into my lap.
