Prophecy: The Awakening
A.M. Scott
Twilight Times, Jul 2004, $15.50, 171 pp.
ISBN: 1931201544

In reaction to the balance between dark and light heavily tilting in favor of the darkness, ancient gods create a force to fight the ultimate battle by making eight individuals immortal with magical powers. At the same time that the gods intercede, the Nameless One awakens, awaiting the moment to capture the gate keeper as a key step to destroy the light.

The gods awaken Kryla, She who is Protector of the Spiritual Planes so she can unite with a mortal host, Andrea as these two separate essences share one body with the goal of finding the other chosen. Kryla trains Andrea to use her extrasensory powers and become spiritually aware, but the mortal also has mundane issues relating to her spouse and four teens. However, her prime directive is to find and “awaken” the other seven knowing she must help them cope with their psychic skills and their fears of their responsibilities, the gods and the dark for their chosen life will never be the same due to magical forces at work.

This opening gamut combines mythological elements with a coming Armageddon that will thrill readers of fantasy. The story line is action-packed yet balances the key awakening inside of the mortals especially Andrea whose coping with the mundane and the fantastic seems so realistic as she doubts she has the right stuff. With strong characterizations (including the mythological) inside a powerfully descriptive tale of good battling evil, this reviewer prophesizes that A.M. Scott and her New Age series will receive strong acclaim. This first tale is a refreshing triumph in the age old theme of the light trying to stop the growing darkness.
