Overview

Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared—by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them.

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.

    4 STARS

    The First Prophet is book 1 of the Bishop Files.

    I liked the story but it was confusing on who are the good guys and bad guys. Even with the first book read I am not totally sure of the answer.
    I was expecting to see more of Bishop and gang in this book than we did see.
    I liked the characters and thier journey they went through it should be interesting to see where the next two books reveal. Hopefully they will come out sooner than later.
    This was my book of the month selection. Lots of drama,action as they try and figure out who is following Sarah Gallagher around, what do they want with her. They already burned her house down and she barely made it out alive.
    Writer Tucker has been looking for a psychic for years to help him find someone. He really does not believe in them. In fact he has proved some were fakes. He arrives while her house is burning down and feels like he needs to watch over her when he finds out someone has been watching her and her house fire was arson.

    I am a big fan of Kay Hooper's Bishop books and couldn't wait to read this one. I wish I had just checked it out
    at the library!  Big disappointment....plot lacked cohesiveness, Bishop had a small walk-on role, and after
    I finished the book I was left with the feeling of, "What just happened, why did I read this?"  My time was wasted.

    Interesting First

    As a fan of Kay Hooper's Bishop series, I'm not sure what I was expecting but this wasn't it. It wasn't her usual smooth read..like I had missed an earlier book. Even so, it doesn't disappoint. It takes a new direction from the Bishop books and takes the reader along with it. I will definitely read the next one in the series.

    I was very disappointed with this book. I am a big fan of the B

    I was very disappointed with this book. I am a big fan of the Bishop series and have read most of Kay Hooper’s books. I found this one lacking, very scattered. pieces of a puzzle I am not sure I am interested in doing. The heroin was for the most part of the book very negative, I was thinking that maybe she deserved to die?!?! It reminded me of Iris Johansen’s book a little. If I had not been a fan of Ms Hooper, I would have stopped reading it and would not have bothered getting any of her other books. As I am a fan, I kept on reading. At the end of it I still don’t know who, why, what, where and I am not sure I want to know. Bishop’s involvement was also a disappointment. He is - briefly - in the book but does not seem to want to get involved while innocent people are killed and children taken. I think I would have prefer not to see him at all than to see him doing nothing except gathering info. . In the last pages I could get a glimpse of why I like Ms Hooper’s books. I won’t definitely buy the next one right away but wait to see it at the library!

    In Hooper’s novel, Sarah Gallagher came out of a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and ended her relationship and now someone is playing with her mind.

    First her home is destroyed by fire—suspected arson no less—which draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into her confidence. Together they seek answers and find a secret most would kill to protect.

    An interesting addition to the A Bishop Files Novel series.

    Really enjoyed it.

    I was so glad to see that there was going to be more along the line of the Bishop series or The Haven. It was a story that caught your interest right away. It will be interesting to see if there is going to be another story spinoff of this one especially with the Duran group and the things that they are planning to do. How will Bishop plan to defeat them?

    Don't Bother

    What a terrible book. I have no idea who the characters were, even on the last page. It was all over the place, random, and made no attempt at any depth. If you are reading it for tge hopes of romance promised, buy something else. This should have been a short story at best, but really wouldn't recommend that. I rarely write reviews, but couldn't let someone else waste their money. Seriously.

    Big disappointment

    The last two books by Kay Hooper have been very slow with little to recommend them to the reader. I am very disappointed.

    Awful

    Hard to follow. Didn't have a clue, as to who was who.. Very repetitive questions.. Hard to believe Kay Hooper authored this.

    Great Read

    If you have followed any of the Bishop series, you can't miss this one! Psychics are dying and some of Bishop's folks might be involved. Check it out!

    I truly like this book. I was a bit confused when I first started reading it as to the new people in the book. She is introducing a virtual new line of characters. I was expecting more of the Bishop folks to be involved but I truly enjoyed reading this book once I got past what I thought it was.

    I loved it!

    Though others were disappointed, I loved this book. It intrduces new characters, talks much more about Haven and suits the Bishop trilogies quite well. I have to think if anyone didn't like it, then they have not read all the books else they would have realized this trilogy is more about Haven and their operatives. Thanks for these books!

    Different direction than usual but Kay Hooper never dissapoints

    I was a little thrown by the storyline and dissapointed that Bishop and his team were almost non existant in this story but I also understand the backstory and stage she was setting for the next two books. The story was entertaining full of twists and turns and suspense. I have read every Kay Hooper book and the bishop novel series twice now i will definetly wait anxiously for the release of what comes next. Diehard fan now and always!
