Book Review for a KV-Connected Author
Faith McKay, wife of our very own Alexis nó Jasmine, Adept of Jasmine House, has published her first novel: "Prophecy Girl (Lacuna Valley #1)". The book is an urban fantasy, young adult novel with loads of appeal to readers of all ages and genres.
The book's description:
Ever since Samantha Winthrop’s mother moved them to Lacuna Valley, supposedly in search of better weather, the list of strange questions she has no answers for has been growing out of control.
Does her little sister, Violet, have the ability to make things happen just by “praying” for them? Are Sam’s dreams really predicting the future? Is she destined to marry the boy she just met, and what is the mysterious orb that he’s guarding? Why does she get the impression that there are dangerous creatures watching from the woods?
While Sam should be focusing on answering those questions, there is one other that makes them seem almost irrelevant: Is her mother planning on killing her and Violet?
One of my favorite lines from the book:
"The more she knew about
all of this, the more she came to realize that ignorance really was
bliss, but the monsters would still kill you just the same."
The first of a planned trilogy, Prophecy Girl is an engaging story that offers thought provoking material for those that are looking for more than a plot. It is heart wrenching in some places and dark in others. There is much we still do not know about Lacuna Valley once we reach the end of this novel...and anticipating what happens next in the story is a sure sign of a series author's job well done.
And as a survivor of teenagehood during the 1980's, a special two-thumbs up to Mrs. McKey for her reference to John Cusack's boombox moment in the movie "Say Anything".
Best of luck to you, Faith. Keep us posted on future

Who We Are
We are an online community based on the Kushiel's Legacy and Naamah's Legacy series of books by Jacqueline Carey. In addition to our Main Site, which hosts member-generated content such as artwork and articles inspired by the series, we are a very active forum community. Members can immerse themselves in the world of Terre d'Ange through discussions regarding the books, events (both online and real-world) inspired by Terre d'Ange, contests in various genres and for various prizes, and light roleplay as well. We are not solely an RP site or a discussion site; instead, we contain both, so that everyone can find something to enjoy. KV is a friendly, supportive society where everyone is bidden to keep in mind Elua's commandment to "love as thou wilt". Everyone, from our dedicated Cassilines to our rampaging Skaldi, from our sparkling Nobles to our alluring Adepts, is welcome in Kushielverse - and this means you, too, can find a home here.
