Alexandra Bock, representing Earthlings everywhere. Oh MOTHER!! HOLY MOTHER!! Lea hit the MOTHERLOAD with this one!! I don't know if there are enough words to convey just how FANTASTIC this story is or just how much I LOVE it!!! Right from the very start I was deeply ensconced in the story, living it with the characters all the way through to the very end! When reading this book, you would NEVER guess that this is Lea's first book! The descriptions, the attention to detail given for every little bit of it, the numerous characters of all ages & species, and oh so very much more, is all so beautifully crafted and works so perfectly together to create one helluva deep & enriched story that literally beams you into a whole new world... or three! I found myself living and experiencing the story right from the very first sentence, taking me on this incredibly amazing journey that had me so emotionally & mentally invested I couldn't tell what was real or fiction! And honestly? I didn’t CARE what was real or not! As long as I could stay with Alex & Gryf, then that was my reality and that is more than great enough for me! It truly touched me all the way deep down into my soul & spirit! The intricacies involving the Prophecy, word & name meanings, how they relate or complement each other, etc. blew me away! Again, the attention to the little details like what Alex’s name means, defies description and is above & beyond SPACETASTIC!! The care & attention to every single little detail is what makes this become so much more than a story, or even an adventure! I truly felt like I was on this mind-blowing, nix that, SOUL-BLOWING SPACERRIFIC mission!! Not once was I bored or lost, I never had problems following the story, understanding what was going on, etc.Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars The pacing is a little slow in parts, but otherwise A good sci-fi/alien read. 20 January 2016
By Bee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
*Warning: possible spoilers*

I love aliens. There aren't many books out there that stray from the cliche; this does.

Waking up with the few "Terrians" (Earthlings) along side of a race of aliens that is kidnapped by (other alien) traitors is scary enough for Alexandra. Then to find out the alien she is attracted to (and vice versa) is her soul mate - literally - and they are the prophecy set to heal the rift between two worlds is quite overwhelming. Once they finally get out of being held captive, they have additional problems to worry about - 7+ billion earthlings are dead and there's between two races (real races, not just skin color like on Earth). Thing is, the Matirans are a matriarchal culture and women make the first move (YES!) and Alexandra is scared. Coming from a cultures of overly aggressive alpha males and women who are too afraid to try to change things, Alex isn't sure she can claim Gryf as her mate, let alone accept responsibility for change on two worlds. Why, Alex, do you tell this race of submissive men to be more aggressive (this happens in regards to other characters)?"Terrian (Earth) women like a man who knows what he wants and goes after it". Not all of us like dominant men. You meet a race of men strong enough to have women make the first move, and want to change that?! I'd LOVE to meet a man who's actually not scared by an assertive woman! I'm so sick of our alpha male society, I was really liking this story until the women started turning the men more aggressive. Stop ruining it for the rest of the Earth women - You're turning an entire race! It already starts happening with Graig, who honestly, is kind of a dick to begin with. Yes, this kind of thing annoys me and along with the idea that "Terrian women eventually want to procreate"(not all of us thank you!) are the reasons the book went from 5 to 4 B/c I hate social programming/indoctrination.

Alex, however does well with taking charge of her self, her camp, and becoming a natural leader. She isn't afraid to fight, to learn, and to lead others even if she was reluctant at first. It just goes to show that women CAN lead and take charge, and that those actions are natural, and shouldn't be suppressed. I really enjoyed that Gryf wasn't threatened by this, and in fact encouraged her to step out of her comfort zone and be even better than she was.

I really liked her transition from scared captive, to healer, to leader/ambassador. Good character development in those areas.

The pacing is a little slow in parts, but otherwise A good sci-fi/alien read.

3.0 out of 5 stars A kinder, gentler alien invasion. 30 July 2016
By history repeats - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is over-the-top and sappily romantic. "Prophecy" sings when Gryf and Alexandra are on the page together. Sadly, it falls apart in all other aspects of the story.

"Prophecy" starts off with a devastating alien invasion by 10-foot tall, green-skinned Anferthians that is minimally detailed. Alexandra Bock, age 22, wakes to discover herself in a prison cell aboard an alien vessel. She is one of the fortunate ones to have her younger brother Nick, age 18, with her. Incarcerated with the humans are Matirans, who are blue-skinned but biologically identical otherwise. Turns out the Matirans have been protectors of Earth for eons and the long forgotten source of Greek myths and other Western civilization cultural norms. Alex and Matiran Senior Captain Gryf quickly develop an extraordinary attraction.

Almost immediately I was struck by the lack of emotion from the survivors about the devastation of their planet. I expected loss and bewilderment. Maybe catatonia. Instead, Alex spurts first with anger. The grieving is paid lip service and I never really felt this emotion from Alex or her brother. Some side characters have sad stories, but the reader is never emotionally vested with them.

To be sure, cell mates Alex, Gryf, Nick, Graig, Dante, Zola, Juan, Dennis, and Simone (uh, did I forget anyone?), are caught up in the immediacy of their desperate situation. Kirk is very strong with the interpersonal relationships for her characters. Alex becomes friends of a sort with every single person in the cell with her.

Unfortunately, this strength did not translate equally to the action adventure portion of the story. Most violence, and therefore most of the battles for supremacy on the prison ship and later on the planet, take place off-page. There is a dramatic swell....and then the chapter ends and we find out what happens (or not) in a memory or verbal explanation by one of the characters. This happens REPEATEDLY. As a literary device it was disconcerting and disappointing. Hence, my kinder, gentler tag at the beginning. Besides the Matirans being honorable and supportive and wonderful at all times, major action scenes were just absent.

The plotting and pacing suffered from jumping over scenes. While we get copious particulars about the courtship of Alex and Gryf, details about the rebel operation are thin to the point they negated the plot. At one point I was totally lost as to the reason behind the survivor camp relocating.

Finally, I have to say something about restraint. This book would have been better with a little. There were too many characters, too many psychic powers, too many secondary love stories, too many pitiful kids, and on and on. That statement sounds more harsh than I intend because, really, the additions were all somewhat interesting and many were quite original. They were just too fast and furious with minimal impact on plot and characterization.

This book shines as it develops the romance between Alex and Gryf. It felt organic although in reality it progressed quickly for a human/alien pairing. There is a cultural norm that forces Gryf into a beta role, and that adds dimension to the courtship. Alex becomes a leader and a heroine as the novel progresses, and she is aided every step of the way by Gryf and the other Matirans. The main romance was remarkably absent of immature push-pull aspects given the relatively young age of Alex. In fact, she is an amazing, mature, admirable character. Not only are Alex and Gryf prophesied to save two worlds, but they save this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice! 14 January 2016
By Jtor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was entertaining, with likable characters. Well written, with a solid plot. Overall, the story was excellent- action, desperation, post- apocalyptic alien destruction, but still brimming with hope and love. Alex matured and developed as a character. Why one star lost? I thought Gryf was a little too nice and gentle for a starship captain (I like a touch more alpha!), as were the Matiran people as a whole. They were so good and reasonable, I wished they had a little more edge to them for more "alien-ness" and drama. The book had a slight New Adult feel, with some spiciness. But, regardless, this was well worth the cost, and I will defiantly be checking for more in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a sci fi romance 7 May 2016
By Mobookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I love the concept for this. Aliens invading earth is not a new idea but the way this opened up was a fresh new look at alien invasions. Alex and Gryf got off to a rocky start. She hated all aliens since the death of her family. He was honor bound to protect them all. All she had left was her brother Nicky and they were in a very bad position.
I love the action and adventure in this story. The sex scenes were enough to make you feel the connection between Alex and Gryf without making the whole story depend just on that. I loved how the other supporting characters were so 3 dimensional. It makes you look forward to more in this series and t
o see who is the next to have their story told. I would recommend this book to any lover of Sci fi romance or even if this is not your normal genre. Is definitely worth looking into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting debut novel! 25 February 2016
By Erika - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5 stars!

So, this overall was a really great debut novel. Lea Kirk's writing is quite polished and her ideas are original. This book had a A LOT of exciting things going on it, including:

--alien invasion
--supernatural abilities
--a main romance, along with side romances
--lots of action!!
--friendships and family relationships
--mythological AND paranormal elements
--sci fi technology
--an emotional climax

I found Prophecy to be fun and entertaining (and even emotional at times), and also tragic (with what happens to earth). Although there was an overarching sci fi paranormal plot, thankfully the romance was front and central. The romance wasn't 100% perfect for me at all times (a few minor things irked me as they happened), but I really appreciated that Gryf (the hero) was not a playboy manwhore, and that Alexandra (the heroine) wasn't a virginal innocent. I also liked that the couple was solidly together for a large chunk of the book. I actually adored Gryf. He was a terrific hero.

There were a couple of side romances, one of which ended up frustrating me and pissed me off at the end. It was resolved, but I remained pissed. I am sure more forgiving readers will have no issue! lol. (I tried to ignore this side romance when it came to rating the book, since it was minor -- and mostly pertains to a small side story, AFTER Prophecy).

I highly recommend this to lovers of sci fi paranormal romance. I do plan to read on in the series, as the books become available.
