The Magical Trine: The Celebrate Lit Blog Tour and Giveaway of Child of Prophecy

About the Book

Book:  Child of Prophecy
Author: T.E. Bradford
Genre:  YA Fantasy
Release Date: August 31, 2018

How far would you go to fit in? Another world?

Fifteen-year-old Nova Hawthorne has a unique trait that sets her apart, yet she wants nothing more than to be normal and fit in.

She soon finds out that there’s a very real reason why she feels so out of place in this world—she’s from another one. And prophecy says she is destined to destroy them both.

Armed only with a magic she does not yet understand and the synesthesia no one else does, she must race to figure out how to stop prophecy from unfolding, find a father she’s never met and discover who she really is. Is it truly our differences that make us who we are? How can you be strong when you’re broken? And what happens when your actions bring about the very destruction you’ve been fighting to prevent?

Book Review

I have always loved fantasy and magic so when I read the plot line of Child of Prophecy, I immediately wanted to read it. This book, of course, is one of a kind but definitely has influences of Narnia and Lord of the Rings.
The characters in the book are interesting ones to follow, and it was fun going on the journey with them. It was difficult to distinguish, at first, what was going on. The author does a great job of making the readers unsure of who is evil and keeping her readers on their toes.
Nova’s and Quentin’s relationship was cute, and there was obvious love there, although it did feel a little forced. Quentin’s and Laura’s friendship was the best, and Laura was honestly my favorite character. A bully on Earth, the reader starts to sympathize with her when you find out about her life. And the way she starts to care for Quentin as a brother is quite sweet.
Overall, I did enjoy this book, and am so glad I got to read it! I can’t wait for the series to continue.
I had received a copy of this book as part of the Celebrate Lit Blogging Team and was required to give an honest review.

 More from Tracy

You’ll find music woven into nearly all my stories. This is especially true in the Divide Series books, as our heroine Nova has something called Synesthesia – a condition where your senses may overlap or cross. In Nova’s case, she can see sounds. Cool, right? On her journeys, she’ll encounter plenty of musical elements, but perhaps none as special as…

There is a King on a great golden throne
His beauty and magic so great none can know
He waits and He watches His children below
Waiting to see them all come safely home.
Travel high! Travel low! Travel through that great light
In the vastness between, where His city shines bright
Travel with Him and you’ll travel no more
Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.
Drink from the fountain that never runs dry
Eat from His table’s bountiful supply
Look in His face, trace the lines of His scars
They never were His wounds… they always were ours.
Travel high! Travel low! Travel through that great light
In the vastness between, where His city shines bright
Travel with Him and you’ll travel no more
Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.
Rest on the sands of His celestial shore.
