Ela Roeh of Parne doesn't understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She's undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she's much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne's elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite's prophet, Ela knows she will die young.
Yet she can't imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite's voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite's word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.
Loved this book!
What a great book! It's absolutely enchanting! Well written and a great read! Can't wait to read the next in the series "Judge"
I grew up on Sci-fi/Fantasy books. I always get enraptured by the out of this world stories, that in my head fit almost as history of long ago. It has been a tough transition to let go reading these books to focus more on learning about God and His Words. I have grown in many ways and I count it a blessing to now find this book where I can better grasp visually the things my God is teaching me from His word. There are beautiful parallels in this book about our own lives and struggles and we can learn so much, knowing that the examples we read are biblically based, yet as exciting and lively as any Sci-fi/fantasy book. You can always double check the Bible yourself as we all should do with sermons we hear, and books we read. I thank this author greatly for allowing this vision given from God to become reality.
