The Bellum Prophecy Book Review and Giveaway

By L. Marie Horton
Young Adult Fantasy 
Release date: December 12th 2013
Purchase: Amazon


BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Two Wars, One Destiny. Seventeen-year-old Edyn Vella always knew that her strange dreams of the future made her unique, but she never knew what they meant. However, when she fails to stop her aunt's murder by an ominous vampiric creature, Edyn learns that her prophetic visions aren't the only superhuman ability she possesses. 

Following her late aunt's clues, Edyn finds herself in New York City attempting to save her last surviving relative, the powerful and reclusive billionaire, Ethan Roux. Edyn not only discovers Ethan isn't exactly human, but that she is at the center of an ancient prophecy and could determine the outcome of an impending war. 

As Ethan's Omega, his only human descendant, she's thrust into an enigmatic world full of new supernatural creatures where both good and evil vampires and warlocks have waged a centuries-long battle for the fate of humanity. Just as her relationship with the mysterious and handsome Brendan begins to blossom, Edyn's complicated new life quickly spirals out of control when ancient evil becomes determined on making her one of them. Edyn must discover her inner strength while making the choice between a long life without love and a potentially short life full of it. 












The Bellum Prophecy is a dark, suspenseful new novel that explores the loss of innocence while coming of age in the midst of a battle between good and evil. Combining the best elements of vampire legend, the supernatural, and even magic, L. Marie Horton uses exciting action and a cutting-edge story to craft a refreshing new take on young adult fiction.

My Opinion:
I'm not usually a fan of vampires but I loved the vampires in The Bellum Prophecy. I admit I love Twilight but honestly if vampires existed I don't believe they would sparkle in the sun. Vampires that have evolved to be able to live in the daylight sounds way more believable to me. So your neighbor could be a vampire and you wouldn't even know it! The vampires, warlocks and the whole Bellum are my favorite part of this book. Edyn was a little annoying and her relationship with Brendan didn't feel right to me. I think Logan or even Kieran would be a better match for Edyn. I feel kinda evil for saying this but I'm so glad The Bellum Prophecy (and Edyn's relationship with Brendan) ended the way it did. I can't wait to read the next book! I give this book 4.5 stars.
