Can a fortune-teller, a scientist, a starlet, and a bounty hunter defy the might of the Vatican to bring about the Prophecy of the Awakening?
Prophecy of the Awakening is recommended for readers of urban fantasy who enjoy stories of struggle, gods, and prophecies affecting modern society and revolves around Greek gods who return to Earth despite the beliefs of the Vatican and a modern Christian world.
The prophecy in this book predicts this event; but many are unaware of these possibilities, leading lives that have little to do with celestial matters. These lives are nicely depicted and juxtaposed with the concerns of fortune tellers and Christian leaders alike.
What does this have to do with Amber's blossoming new relationship, a kidnapping, and the Church's incongruous efforts to destroy a child? As the story evolves, readers are treated to a satisfying blend of Vatican politics, a mystery and an investigation, and a prediction about an antichrist that challenges belief systems and science alike.
By keeping his story firmly rooted in contemporary society with its twists and turns, Daniel A. Willis creates an involving, engrossing story that eschews any predictable focus on Greek mythology in favor of modern characters and dilemmas that focus on both their choices and the impact of an impossible forecast. When Greek gods begin to appear and intervene in the world, it's this thorough grounding in a realistic society and its concerns that keeps Prophecy of the Awakening a powerful, revealing tale with believable protagonists whose lives intertwine nicely with the fantasy elements crafted to fruition, as the chapters evolve.
The result is thoroughly engrossing and highly recommended for readers who enjoy fantasies about prophecy and belief which have their foundations firmly rooted in powerful protagonists and their lives, relationships, and motivations. - D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review
