One normal day turns into horror when Earth is attacked. Now ER nurse Alexandra Bock is imprisoned aboard an alien slave ship with no way out. She deems all aliens untrustworthy, including the handsome blue-skinned Matiran captain who shares her cell.

A betrayal from within

One night of treachery leaves Senior Captain Gryf Helyg a prisoner of his enemies. Because of him, Earth’s inhabitants face extinction and his home world is threatened. But his plans for escape are complicated by his inexplicable draw to the Earth woman imprisoned with him.

Prophecy is the first book in the Prophecy series, and we start off with Alex as she is thrown into a cell after aliens have invaded earth. She has no idea what has happened to her family or friends, but is determined to do what she can. The first time she meets Gryf, she lays one on him and gives him a black eye. Gryf takes it, not only because it goes against in him to 'attack' a woman, but also because he believes it is deserved. He feels an immense amount of guilt in allowing the earth to be attacked. These two have to work together if there is to be any chance of survival. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Alex and Gryf are fantastic together. They have a slow-burn romance with some steamy moments, but not too many. As Alex rightly says 'it can be hard getting private time in a refugee camp'. Okay, so I'm paraphrasing, but you know what I mean! Alex is a straight-talking, no-nonsense character who does her best no matter what the situation. Gryf is the honourable Captain who will do anything to protect those who can't protect themselves. He even lumps Alex into that category until she proves otherwise. So many characters in this book, and I loved all of them! Well, apart from the baddies ;) Graig has to be a favourite of mine, and Dante, and Nick, and Ora, and... oh you get the idea! Really pleased to hear that Nick will be getting his own book, and the extra chapter with Graig was sheer perfection. This story was very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. The pace was smooth, the action was exciting, and the romance was wonderful. I have no hesitation in recommending this book, and I look forward to reading more in this series, and by this author. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I need more stars. This book is absolutely incredible. Well thought it and planned. Gryf and Alex are amazing. Their relationship touched my soul. Side characters were well fleshed out. Plot was steady. I finished it in 24 hours. I absolutely love this book. I love the writing style. So beautiful. I only have one negative thing to say. At one point Alex ruffles Simone's hair. Never touch a black woman's hair!!! I need to pre order book 2.

HOLY MOTHER!! Lea hit the MOTHERLOAD with this one!! I don't know if there are enough words to convey just how FANTASTIC this story is or just how much I LOVE it!!! Right from the very start I was deeply ensconced in the story, living it with the characters all the way through to the very end! The descriptions, the attention to detail given for every little bit of it, the numerous characters of all ages & species, and oh so very much more, is all so beautifully crafted and works so perfectly together to create one helluva deep & enriched story that literally beams you into a whole new world... or three! I found myself living and experiencing the story right from the very first sentence, taking me on this incredibly amazing journey that had me so emotionally & mentally invested I couldn't tell what was real or fiction! It truly touched me all the way deep down into my soul & spirit! The intricacies involving the Prophecy, word & name meanings, how they relate or complement each other, etc. blew me away! Again, the attention to the little details like what Alex’s name means, defies description and is above & beyond SPACETASTIC!! The care & attention to every single little detail is what makes this become so much more than a story, or even an adventure! I truly felt like I was on this mind-blowing, nix that, SOUL-BLOWING SPACERRIFIC mission!! Not once was I bored or lost, I never had problems following the story, understanding what was going on, etc. In fact, I had an extremely hard time putting it down! IT TRULY IS ONE SPACETACULAR STORY!!! And there is SO MUCH story content to love! The humor and sound bites from various Sci-Fi movies/shows & books had me belly laughing and a couple times I was laughing so hard I had tears! The connections that I had to/with the characters was unbelievable! From the main characters, right down to minor, minor characters, they all had my attention. I would enthusiastically rate this book 1 MILLION GOLD STARS if I could! Immediately I was living the story both with and as the characters, I could feel their fear, see how scared they were, how betrayed some were, etc. I love how Lea has created a whole new race of aliens that are similar to humans, but yet so different! Then there are the other aliens that are nothing like humans at all! I love the new languages, how there are words & phrases integrated throughout that you actually forget aren't 'real' words, but yet you understand them, know exactly what they mean, which adds even more depth & richness to the whole experience! The characters are all intriguing, well developed, even the "Bad Guys", although not a lot of time is spent with the bad guys, but you can still appreciate the time and effort that was put into creating ALL of the characters! The storyline was fluid, flowing smoothly & more importantly - consistently! For a first time author Lea did a PHENOMENAL job! Scratch that! For an author period, this is a FANTASTIC creation!! It is a work of art! My ONE & ONLY complaint is that the next book(s) are not yet out!!! I truly cannot wait for the chance to visit Matir, catch up with my new friends and live some more adventures with them!! ALL IN ALL - YOU NEED THIS BOOK!! So run your fingers & mouse right over to your e-store of choice and buy this book today!! Due to size limitations, this review has been significantly shortened.
