Prophecy Of Thol

In stock

Recurring nightmares haunted D’laine Jackson when she woke from an eight-month coma following a tragic accident.

Four images were branded in her head: a dark-haired, handsome princely young man, a fierce reptilian monster, a white furry creature whose red eyes implored her with some unspoken message, and an ominous black robot.

Now, five years later, D’laine was getting ready to go off to college. During one last shopping trip with her father and brothers for dorm supplies, a blanket of fog rolled out of the sky at the mall, in broad daylight in plain sight of dozens of witnesses. When the fog pulled back D’laine was gone.

When she woke, her nightmare turned into reality.

In a departure from the Romance to the Science Fiction genre, Dawn Ireland has nailed it. With vivid characters and masterful plotting, Thol the third planet from the Voltar and Astor suns comes to life in her hands. Imagine a modern teenager in Capri pants and Game of Thrones t-shirt, attached to her cellphone by a subliminal link, suddenly being transported from the familiar to Thol, with no social media dictating a spin on it. Colors more vivid than she had ever seen, creatures who accepted her for who she was and not some dictate of fashion. A world where the great outdoors didn’t result in allergic reactions. After an accident that left her scarred and patched up with metal parts, her new friends reengineerher back to the original configuration of the human form. I could do with friends like that. D’Laine is their new Warrior Princess, whether she likes it or not. Can she save them from the Robots? And can she then get back through the dangerous portals to be with her family again? That’s the burning question.

You know books where you take your time and just read, purely out of enjoyment? This one of them books. The world that is made is so beautiful done and layered. Most things are explained but not to the point where your getting annoyed with them telling you the story. It helps add to the story, knowing the details about all the different species, animals and plant life on the planet? Or is it called plane/place. Still little confused on that one. The science is used very well, and very detailed. It not over used, or here let’s just slap a really big long word and confuse people. It all had it purpose and context. Again it added to the layers in the story. It felt like the author knew what she was talking about when using scientific terminology, which is always a plus. There was a lot that happened in the book, but at the same time not really. It was just the right amount, it didn’t feel rushed. Maybe the end a little, but then again it was part of how the story played out. I like how the main character had to work at getting good, work at using her gifts. Nothing worse than a character having abilities, and just being amazing straight away. It not realistic. I like how it shifted view points. You got to see more of the story from a range of different sides. There were some errors; 4 total. Just basic basic errors, nothing major. I sent them off to the author, should be fixed straight away. (Jamie stared up at Ghury. “Wow, a Wookie!” Ghury grumbled.) – Had me in stitches.

This five-star beauty of a story is so well done I hardly know where to start. First of all, while it is definitely suitable for teens and young adults based on its content, as someone who has grandkids in that age group I thoroughly enjoyed it, too. More than enjoyed, actually. I loved it! The author did a fabulous job of transitioning the heroine, seventeen year old D’Laine, from what had been a very trying time, to some semblance of normalcy as she prepared to go to college, to being plunged unexpectedly into an entirely different world. Her premonitions in the form of nightmares provided great background and suspense. In most cases, giving the reader more information instead of less actually builds more suspense as you have so many more things to consider and worry about. Not only did D’Laine fall through a portal and find herself on another planet with a variety of weird creatures, she also was introduced to powers she possessed of which she had no idea! Her transition into the role effectively took the reader along for the ride in a very smooth and credible manner. The unusual sentient creatures and their respective cultures were well-drawn, full of imagery, and convincing, as well as their interactions among themselves and the planet as a whole. The humans were just alien enough, being somewhat medieval in some senses, yet high-tech on another, making them relatable. The advantage of having a modern earthling as a protagonist is that the descriptions can be familiar. Some of the comparison and references to sci-fi icons such as the Star Wars movies were effective and often humorous. Like one of the other reviews on this site, I laughed at the wookie comment, too. The science element was convincing as well, the physicists involved straight out of “The Big Bang Theory.” I loved the characters left behind on Earth and their efforts to find the portal so they could bring back D’Laine. On a subjective level, I thoroughly enjoyed the fact they were in Houston, where I used to live. Thus, I enjoyed the references to familiar places including the Katy Mills Mall and local roadways. It’s always a plus when the location details are authentic, which adds credibility. Those who have never been there never know the difference, but to those who have it makes the story come even more alive. I’ll even forgive the fact the story broke one of my cardinal rules of writing, about starting a story with the main character. I can forgive any deviance that works, in this case giving it a story-telling flavor similar to “The Princess Bride.” (However, if I had been the editor, I would have recommended using a prologue.) For a while I was worried that the story would end with a cliff hanger. Fortunately, it had a very satisfying conclusion, yet I definitely look forward to the promised sequel, which is the perfect ending. This is a great story for all ages. Don’t miss it!
