PROPHECY Hits the Shelves


It's finally here! PROPHECY by Ellen Oh. I am beyond excited for this book and I have so much love for it and Ellen herself.

I read an early draft of this book way back when Ellen and I manuscript swapped. She read GILDED and I read PROPHECY so it's kind of an amazing thing to see our books debuting in 2013.

What I love about PROPHECY:

1.  The setting- Hello, ancient Korea. It doesn't get much better than that. So automatically, it hits my winner category.

2. The premise- Fighter girl who saves her people. My type of book.

3. The Korean mythology- After writing  GILDED, I find it intriguing to see how other authors pull the ancient myths into their own stories and Ellen does such a great job with this.

4. The cover- Tell me that's not gorgeous.

5. The fight scenes- If you're looking for a good action-packed quest with thrilling fight scenes, you really need to read this book.


To stalk Ellen, you can find her on websiteTwitter or Tumblr.

That's an awesome cover :) An ancient Korean setting would be pretty awesome too! Sounds like my kind of book, and it would be super cool to see how the myths have been woven in. Congrats to both you and Ellen for having your novel debuts this year!

Aaaahhh! I'd love to win a copy of this! I think Korean culture is awesome. I loooove watching Korean Dramas and I like to eat kimchi (accompanied with meat, especially bite-size steak pieces) and I think K-Pop music is so fun (my 2 year old daughter sometimes have our own little dance parties). Thanks for this giveaway!

Very excited to read Prophecy! Can't order a copy for myself yet though and the public library is ignoring me for the moment and won't order copies either. Only way of reading it soon is by winning! Thanks for the opportunity~
