Overview

The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Our world is no longer our own.

We engineered a race of superior fighters—the Manti, mutant humans with insect-like abilities. Twenty-five years ago they all but destroyed us.

In Sanctuary, some of us survive. Eking out our existence. Clinging to the past.

Some of us intend to do more than survive.

Asha and Pax—strangers and enemies—find themselves stranded together on the border of the last human city, neither with a memory of how they got there.

Asha is an archivist working to preserve humanity's most valuable resource—information—viewed as the only means of resurrecting their society.

Pax is Manti, his Scarab ship a menacing presence in the skies over Sanctuary, keeping the last dregs of humanity in check.

But neither of them is really what they seem, and what humanity believes about the Manti is a lie.

With their hearts and fates on a collision course, they must unlock each other's secrets and forge a bond of trust before a rekindled conflict pushes their two races into repeating the mistakes of the past.

The Ophelia Prophecy is the thrilling new SF romance from Sharon Lynn Fisher, author of Ghost Planet

This book is definitely original. There are things out there about mutants, but insect-human hybrids? I think that the world building in this book was done rather well. There was a good amount of science mixed in so it felt realistic. The action in this book never lets up. I thought at the beginning, 'Can they really keep this amount of intensity and action up?' Well the answer is yes. I'm pretty satisfied that there isn't insta-love in this book, because I really can't stand that and I thought that was how this book was going to go. There is such a sense of star crossed lovers in this book, but it's not overly dramatic in that aspect. One thing that kind of bothers me is the third person POV. The book is constantly jumping from how she feels to how he feels, it's annoying and I often found myself confused. I also found these characters kind of two dimensional and flat. I wasn't really satisfied with the character development. There were a lot of unexpected surprises in this book, which I always love. As much as there are some things that annoyed me in this book I kept telling myself "only one more chapter and then you will do ____." But every time I finished that chapter I found myself saying "just one more". I had no idea what to expect with this book, overall I think it was a captivating read.
