Product Description

As a powerful wizard threatens the Chosen from beyond the grave, can they unravel The Prophecy in time to save their world?

Tasia is a very special Chosen. Warned to keep her distance from her brethren, she makes a fateful decision one night to assist an injured Shape-shifter. Suddenly, Tasia finds herself in the cross-hairs of Shifter mercenaries encroaching on San Francisco and their vampire allies. Forced out of the shadows, Tasia has little choice but to ally herself with the local Shifter Pack, led by a formidable and dangerous Alpha Protector. In the cut-throat world of a Shifter Pack, Tasia must fight to guard her secrets while struggling to negotiate with the enigmatic Alpha who holds his violent Pack together with a ruthless hand on its reins.
Grave danger threatens their world as a powerful wizard exploits an old prophecy to divide the Chosen. When the Pack is asked to investigate the twenty-five year old mystery, Tasia is drawn deeper into a past that risks raising the suspicions of the very Chosen she hides from. As danger closes in on her, Tasia must decide who to trust with the deadly secrets she guards.

Praise for The Prophecy

"Surprising, unique, entertaining, The Prophecy is a humorous and modern take on werewolves, magic, and vampires. Petra Landon breaks stereotypes of these themes, creating layered characters that are flawed and real ... Landon leaves an impression through the characters. A must-read for any urban fantasy lover!"
-- Reader's Favorite

"The Prophecy is a fast paced and at times action intense story. Its packed with strong characters and backed by a highly engaging plot. What I enjoyed most was the completely new take on the paranormal world. Landon does a marvelous job at world building and creating a place you can let our imagination go."
-- Tome Tender

"I think Landon is a bright new talent in the urban-fantasy world and I, for one, will be waiting with baited breath for the next offering from this uber-talented, debut author. 
A great job and kudos to the author. A five-star winner from this reviewer."
-- Author Grant Leishman

"The Prophecy by Petra Landon is an urban fantasy readers don't want to miss ... Her characters dragged me out of this world and straight into theirs ... Deadly secrets and a fantasy that will keep readers entertained. I couldn't stop reading it."
-- Urban Book Reviews

Author's Note : The Prophecy is the first book of Saga of the Chosen, an urban fantasy series sprinkled with action, adventure, an unfolding mystery and a dose of romance. Set in contemporary San Francisco in the fantastical and intrigue-ridden world of Chosen where factions of wizards, Shape-shifters, vampires and others vie for power and influence over their kind, it introduces Tasia Armstrong, a Magick with dangerous secrets and powers. Circumstances propel Tasia from a nondescript life on the fringes of Chosen society to a crucial role in an investigation to decode a mysterious plot from the past that threatens her people. Along the way, she gains new friends and allies while struggling to maintain a tempestuous alliance with the local Shape-shifter Pack. Thrust into a world where the line between friend and foe is often hard to decipher, Tasia must figure out the rules quickly even as danger stalks ever closer to her.
The Rainmaker will be Book Two of this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who is Tasia Armstrong? 10 May 2017
By JennlyT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Full disclosure, I was provided a copy of this book by the author however have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.

Set in modern day San Francisco, “The Prophecy” is the story of Tasia Armstrong, who is currently living in the city under the guise of a low-level wizard. Always looking over her shoulder and taking great pains hide her secret, Tasia scrapes by with whatever jobs she can get, including the occasional magic gig more suited to a wizard of lesser prowess. As the daughter of two powerful magic users, Tasia has also inherited considerable power from both parents and it has been through her father’s efforts that her existence is a carefully guarded secret. As such, she must hide out in plain sight for fear of the repercussions that her existence may bring.

For the most part, Tasia has been doing very well blending in and escaping notice, but that all changes when a side magic job ultimately leads to her discovery of a captive Shifter. From the moment she comes to Hawk Manotti’s aid, Tasia’s world is turned on its side as she finds an easy friend in the Shifter and his twin. Unfortunately, Tasia being in the right place at the wrong time has also caused her to become the target of more scrutiny and attention than she ever wanted. The San Francisco area is experiencing a rash of muggings of low level female wizards in the area, of which Tasia’s cover would fit the profile. After Tasia barely escapes an attack of her own she is forced into an unlikely alliance with the Northern California shifter pack. As a guest of the Alpha Protector and under pack protection, Tasia takes up a tenuous residence at the Lair and begins to assist the Alpha and his pack with an investigation into a decades old event. A powerful witch named Lady Bethesda broke into the magical vault in New York 24 years ago died shortly thereafter. The pack, at the request of the Wizard and Shifter heads have been tasked to try to piece together Lady Bethesda’s movements prior to her death and more importantly determine if the sorceress somehow survived the blast that killed many that day. The more the pack discovers with the help of Tasia, the more curious the mystery becomes. As the threads start to unravel, Tasia wonders if she will ever be safe again.

First off, I must say that the above synopsis doesn’t even compare to all the action that is in this book! Being the first in the “Saga of the Chosen” series of books by Petra Landon this a great introduction into the world of the Chosen. Tasia’s San Francisco is full of Shifters, Vampires and Magicks of all type with a unique culture and political structure for each faction. Told primarily from Tasia’s point of view she finds herself navigating quite a few sticky situations as she attempts to adjust to life in the Shifter pack with its many traditions and idiosyncrasies. In a world where Chosen factions tend to keep to themselves and not willingly associate with the other groups, the dynamic Tasia has with the Pack and their Alpha is curious at best and scandalous at worst. Tasia finds herself running afoul of the Alpha Protector more times than she would like, but is inexplicably drawn to him. The budding dynamic between Tasia and Raoul reminds me of a plot of an old school romance novel where no matter how hard the macho lead tries to resist, he falls for the heroine despite himself. If there will be romance in the cards for Tasia and the Alpha Protector is a topic for another installment in the Saga, but for me the seeds are definitely there! Overall “The Prophecy” is a fantastic story – a classic take on the Urban Fantasy with a fresh new twist and I am looking forward to seeing all that this series has to offer.
5.0 out of 5 stars Such a wonderful fantasy novel 21 April 2017
By ERIN E WOLF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I give The Prophecy (book 1 in the Saga of the Chosen series) by Petra Landon 5 stars.
The Prophecy is a wonderful fantasy novel the likes of which I haven’t seen in a long time!

Tasia has been hiding for a long time. This is what her father taught her from a young age. Don’t let them know who you really are or just how much power you wield. So she is hiding in a new city as a low level magic user. Sure, it doesn’t pay well and she lives in the slums, but this is all the better to hide.

Little does she know, one night can change everything. She is scheduled on a call one evening to clean up some magic blood. This sounds like a routine job. But while there, she is aware of someone in trouble. But she can’t reveal was she is, so she does her job and goes home. Her conscious though, has different plans and she goes back in the middle of the night to help. She ends up rescuing a shifter. This on good deed puts not only her identity, but her own life in danger.

She is forced to accept help from the shifters, they can protect and hide her. Along the way, she realizes how much more is going on. Low level female magic user are being taken. The people supposed to be protecting these people may not be as good as they seem. And there are much more evil forces at hand, including ones thought long dead.

What is really going on? Just who can Tasia trust? And what role does she play in this?

I loved this book. It is much longer than I have been used to lately, but don’t let that daunt you. It is written wonderfully and you will be drawn into the story immediately. There so much going on, you will not be bored. The characters are quite engaging. You will not even disappointed in his wonderful book.
5.0 out of 5 stars I appreciated that a lot as many authors are recently just tagging the reader inducing them to an annoying amount of none existi 24 April 2017
By S. J. Main - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The Prophecy is the first of the Saga of the Chosen series. It is an urban fantasy book written with full of mysteries, action, and adventure. There is a hint of romance embedded within the story giving it an edge. The world is set in a contemporary style, containing Wizards, Vampires, and Shapeshifters. The heroine of this story is from San Francisco. Her name is Tasia, and she is on a mission to investigate and decode a plot that is threatening the lives of people. She does have friends to help her, but she finds it’s hard to trust fully and therefore, always has one eye open for the odd betrayal.

I found the powerful Wizard to be very intriguing. I almost wanted her to win. There are councils, guardians, leeches and of course handsome Alpha protector creating an epic casting crew. The entire story is well paced out with intense action scenes and packed with strong character developments. The literary standard was in high quality-inducing the reader to really dig into this fantasy world.

The author also did not tease you by just providing hints of a story just to drag you to buy the next book. I appreciated that a lot as many authors are recently just tagging the reader inducing them to an annoying amount of none existing literature, only to have them buy their next coming book.

I look forward to reading more from this author. Great writing at its best!

I highly recommend this book to fantasy lovers and sci-fi readers. This book does not disappoint.

These are just but a few words that best describe The Prophecy by Petra Landon. It's an urban fantasy set within a world that has many layers that unfold beautifully. From the well developed and ever evolving characters, the back stories as well as the main story, which weaves in and out, and paced perfectly. All of these amazing points create a delicate balance, bringing about a brilliant and memorable start to a series that will no doubt continue to be captivating and exciting.

I felt compelled immediately to fall in love from the first word and held onto every breath as I devoured this wonderfully written story about Wizards, Shifters, Vampires and Ancients. It has depth and a richness that is most thoughtful to the story and mesmerising for the reader. You are drawn in and catapulted completely within thus making it impossible to stop reading. Everything about this book is beautiful and for the life of me I don't know how I'm going to survive waiting for the next instalment.

I want to thank the author for letting me experience such a unique and exciting ride, and I also want to remark how much I appreciate every word she wrote to create such a fantastical read.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved This Book of Wizards, Shape-Shifters and Vampires - Great Debut Novel 19 April 2017
By Rea - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book to read by a friend and I'm thrilled she gave it to me now. The Prophecy was a wonderful delve into the world of Vampires, Shape-shifters and Wizards.
It started with the premise that The Chosen are living among us and we have no idea that they are there. In the Prophecy, a very powerful Wizard, who has been hiding her powers for fear of being targeted by other Chosen, finds herself seeking refuge and sanctuary with a pack of Shape-shifters, led by the violent, yet enigmatic Alpha, Raoul. In Landon's world the groups of The Chosen do not mix and their hatred for each other is only assuaged by an agreement and a Council who ensure that the different classes of The Chosen do not seek to destroy each other. For a Wizard to be living with and allied with Shape-shifters is virtually unheard of.
The relationships between Tasia and the Shape-shifters is what gives this book such a powerful message.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and will be looking for the next Petra Landon book in the series when it is available. I'm a fan.
