Spirit of Prophecy can only be described as a dramatic, thrilling and exciting novel that will keep readers entertained, captivated and engrossed from the very first page. Supernatural stories are currently my go-to read so when I read the description of Spirit of Prophecy I knew that I had to read it as well as review it so that all you lovely readers could learn about it. Never before have I been so captivated by a supernatural story and this is thanks to the exceptional author J.J. Hughes and her talented literature and so, if you are a reader who loves fantasy/paranormal and supernatural reads then you will adore this supernatural adventure as it is stellar!

Spirit of Prophecy is a unique book with many different plot avenues however the main focus of the story is the female protagonist, Rosetta Barrett. Rosetta is a psychic detective and she works for the Elite Paranormal Intelligence Services… I know, how cool is this book lovers! And Rosetta lives an interesting life, working alongside crime and the paranormal. Rosetta’s life, however, is complicated and her beliefs have caused a great deal of trouble for her, so much so that she has lost custody of her children during her bitter divorce because of her beliefs and work. However, Rosetta has not given up, and she is fighting to get her children back. The reader will follow Rosetta as she tries to do this but soon she will find herself wrapped up in a terrifying case of ‘revenge and retribution,’ and if she does not succeed in stopping this endless cycle then it will have ‘explosive consequences’ and this book lovers is the premise of the sensational novel that is Spirit of Prophecy.

The story of Spirit of Prophecy shocked me from the start because although I thought I knew where the book was going to go, it didn’t go that way and instead took a U-turn and wow it was shocking! The themes combined and laced throughout Spirit of Prophecy perfectly compliment the atmosphere of the book and story; the reader will experience mystery, action, terrifying and thrilling moments and many more exceptional themes. As I read Spirit of Prophecy, I found myself racing through it, turning the pages with haste thanks to the addictive nature. What I loved the most about Spirit of Prophecy is that it was not a silly paranormal detective novel in which the author has to rely on gimmicks. Instead, the story is unique and has the perfect combination of crime, suspense, and mystery which are all perfectly weaved together by the exceptional author, J.J. Hughes.

Spirit of Prophecy is excellent and incredibly well-developed thanks to Hughes as she manages to develop her world with immaculate detail; every event, character, and setting is well thought out and planned, and I was impressed by Hughes flawless ability to do this. As I read Spirit of Prophecy, I immediately was drawn into the book and felt captivated by Hughes’s spellbinding literature. Hughes’s writing is detailed in the most immaculate of ways; the text is detailed but not too dense, it is beautifully written so that the reader will be able to immerse themselves in the story from beginning to end without difficulty.

Not only is J.J. Hughes a talented author for her descriptive powers, but she is also a phenomenal writer thanks to her characterization of the protagonist of the novel Rosetta. Rosetta is a character every reader will be able to root for, her grit and determination to not give up and to fight her way to survival are inspiring and will have many readers care about her. Hughes has essentially written a character study of Rosetta, and I adore this approach in literature because it makes the story even more immersive and entertaining for a reader. Being able to accompany Rosetta on her journey was incredible, it was remarkable to witness her growth along the way and extraordinary to observe how she goes about solving the crime and troubling situations she was faced with. Hughes captivates her readers from the start and so the reader will feel as if they are in the same situation as Rosetta, they too will be finding their way through the tumultuous landscape and feel the same emotions of fear and excitement just as Rosetta does.

J.J. Hughes is an incredible author who has written a fantastic story and come up with a brilliant idea. Hughes from the very start sets the tone of the novel; she lets her readers know that this is going to be a dark and atmospheric book thanks to her literature and wow was it! Hughes is an exceptional writer because she grabs her readers attention from the start very quickly and keeps them engrossed until the end. There are no long build-ups that drag in Spirit of Prophecy; instead, the reader will be thrown into the thick of the story quickly, and the result of this is exciting (and slightly terrifying!).

Overall Spirit of Prophecy is a superb novel that has everything a reader would want in a story; it has a thrilling narrative, magnificent plot development and excellent characterization that will thrill and excite its readers so of course, I have to award this impressive piece of literature five stars!
