Book Review | Canellian Eye: Prophecy

Canellian Eye: Prophecy by Caroline Noe

The towering monolith of Erulia’s Prophecy stood for millennia in the watery paradise of Canellia, its warning unheeded.

That time is long past.

In the wake of dying twin suns, this generation faces extinction as the carving crumbles under the onslaught of an Ice Age.

Then, in the depths of despair, a child is born, bearing a singular birthmark: the symbol of their foretold saviour, Jehul’s Eye.

In a bid to find New Canellia, the Chosen youth launch into space, following their Prophet, Quaylan.

But where is he leading them?

Destiny is never simple.

REVIEW

An endearing set of characters from different worlds; a great start to a series

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The pacing starts off a bit slow as we are introduced to characters of a dying planet. Honestly, it took me a while to care about them. But then, as they try to do their best to resolve issues when things go wrong, and end up in dire circumstances on another planet, I became more and more intrigued by the characters, the plot, and the worldbuilding. There were scenes of suspense, difficult heart-wrenching moments, and sprinkles of hope. A solid beginning to a fascinating series!

*This book was read and reviewed (in Amazon & Goodreads) in December 2019 as part of my participation in the 2019 Indiecember Challenge. Sorry for the late post.
