I loved this book!!! Daughter of Prophecy is about a girl destined to become Protecroress of the Covanent. No one knows what that truly means. An attempt on her life was made at birth, then nothing for 16 years. Then her home is destroyed and Winged Horrors take the skies with one thought on their minds: 'Kill red haired girl!' Can she survive the Horrors and demons of the Great ones or will she die in the name of the covanent? Buy this book and find out...

Excellent story in which faith, adventure and romance are woven together in a wonderful mix. The characters are finely drawn and appealing and the action is interesting and well written. Great first novel--I look forward with some anticipation to the sequel.

For fantasy lovers, this is a wonderful pick. Looks to be a very good series. Dr. Owens weaves a wonderful tale, with believable, multi-dimensional characters. Pick this one up, but make sure you can sleep late the next day, because you won't put it down.

I went into this book expecting more of an action/adventure tale, when in fact, while there is a good helping of well written action, it is much more focused on the internal struggles of the characters as they seek to overcome their past and accept their place in the Eternal's plan. As such you will spend a lot of time in more mundane settings, experiencing the internal turmoil. As such, the book dragged a bit for me, especially 1/2 way through in a lenghty span covering the events of an important, but often tedius wool sale. Still, the characters are likeable, and the events believable within the world. Overall I enjoyed this initial offering by Miles Owen, and look forward to continuing the series as Rhiannon grows in her role as Protectoress of the Covenant.

For hundreds of years, an ancient evil has been held at bay by a sacred Covenant. When fire- breathing, winged beasts descend upon the Rogoth household one night and burn it to the ground, the residents of the land find themselves in a fight for their lives. Even more mysterious, the creatures display a single-minded obsession, shrieking 'Kill red-haired girl' as they attack. At the center of the battle, beautiful, red-haired Rhiannon, teeters on the brink of womanhood, wondering how and when God will fulfill the prophecy spoken over her at birth. The priest called her the 'Protectoress of the Covenant' and declared she would 'return its [the Covenantís] fullness to the land while bringing the Mighty Ones and their creatures to heel again.' But how does a young maiden of a poor sheep-herding clan overcome winged horrors and their siyyim (demonic) masters to accomplish such a monumental feat? The attacks increase in frequency and intensity, causing damage to property and loss of life. But the clan discovers a weakness in the enemy's power. Fervent prayer weakens the demonic powers that control the winged horrors, leaving the beasts vulnerable to arrows and swords. As Rhiannon and her clan's warriors fend off the attacks, her tutor and the priest battle on the spiritual plane. But to truly end the nightmare and restore peace to the land, they must find and battle the demon that controls the beasts. And they all recognize that will be the most dangerous and difficult mission they have faced yet. Daughter of Prophecy is beautifully written. Owens has a poetic way with words--eloquent, but with a restraint that doesn't distract from the story. Vivid description makes you feel as if you are there. Great characterization draws you into the charactersí plights. And you will scarcely breathe through the action scenes. I strongly recommend this book and will be watching for the sequel.

An intriguing parallel regarding the power, depth, and dimensions of prayer, Miles Owens¿ Daughter of Prophecy proves a delightful read and thrilling ride. In my own writing, I strive to challenge readers to carefully weigh their beliefs. When a story can challenge me in my own beliefs, leave me with lingering ¿aftershocks¿ of its powerful message, I cannot help but proclaim it a ¿must read!¿ And this is precisely what Owens¿ has accomplished with Rhiannon¿s tale. Another pleasing aspect is the careful weaving of pivotal events in the conclusion. I have not felt ¿giddily¿ satisfied with an ending in quite a while. With more books lingering on the horizon, I anxiously await the answer to Rhiannon¿s question, How far had the Mighty Ones penetrated Faber Castle?

In 1201 Lady Eyslk gives birth to a healthy girl Rhiannon de Murdeen en Rogoth of Clan Dinari. The father Lord Tellan is elated though dazed at becoming a first time father. However as the Loreteller Girard begins to scribe the birthing information on parchment, monks from the Keepers of the Covenant surprise everyone when they arrive to predict the newborn babe would become the Protectoress of the Covenant and bring affluence to the land. However, the elderly monk tries to kill the baby after quite a struggle he dies, but not before he murders Eyslk. --- Just under sixteen years later, her home is in fiery ruins as dragons take to the sky to stop the prophecy from happening so that they can rule the Broken Stone Lands from the sky, They must kill Rhiannon as the only potential threat. Her tutor Lakenna has taught her more than just book knowledge. Only a teen, she is the one person who can enter the spirit plane to weaken unbeatable dragons and their even more invincible evil masters (demons) so that they can be harmed by master sword fighters and archers on the mortal plane. She is the red haired DAUGHTER OF PROPHECY, but has a long weary quest to meet what has been foretold about her since birth. --- This is an extremely exciting fantasy that opens at a fevered pitch and never slows down until the concluding battle occurs with the above paragraphs only describe the beginning of Rhiannon¿s geas. The cast is strong enabling the audience to believe in dragons, demons and wars on a spiritual plane. Readers who enjoy good vs. evil confrontations will appreciate Rhiannon¿s tale, sort of like Saint Joan and the Dragon. --- Harriet Klausner
