Twenty Four Potential Children of Prophecy by Emily Martha Sorensen @CleanYAFantasy
Twenty-Four Potential Children of Prophecy (The Numbers Just Keep Getting Bigger Book 1) - Emily Martha Sorensen

I have been a fan of Emily Martha Sorensen’s ever since I read Dragon’s Egg, so I was excited to get my hands on Twenty Four Potential Children of Prophecy, her new novella series.

 

Twenty-Four Potential Children of Prophecy (The Numbers Just Keep Getting Bigger Book 1)

Amazon  /  Goodreads


 

MY REVIEW

 

Many times I find it hard to rate novellas. I like a lot of depth and detail in my stories, but sometimes the characters win me over, and Henina does that very nicely.

 

Henina is a fabulous character that kept me in stitches with her antics. She never stops talking and loves to argue. She’s in no hurry to get married and have children, like so many other girls.

 

She is an apprentice for her father, dumpster diving for items they can repair and sell.

“The days of the war are numbered…She will rule with wisdom and grace.”

 

Twenty four girls were rounded up and taken to the castle, Henina among them. Because of her personality, she never thought of herself as the chosen one.

 

A fun and quick read, filled with lots of smiles and chuckles.

 

I’m excited to meet her dog, Mud, and spend more time with her in Fifty Three Assassins With a Head Cold.

 

I found this hard to rate and bounced between 3 and 4…but because I couldn’t help but smile and laugh at Henina’s antics, loving her brash and witty personality, and left wanting more, I went high.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of Twenty Four Potential Children of Prophecy by Emily Martha Sorensen.

Adventureland: Tarzan's Treehouse
The Kingdom of Four Rivers - Guy Salvidge

 

Not much action in this one.

 

The Asian (China? I think) government (possibly others) have carried out a massive depopulation program.

This takes place a few hundred years after and follows a family of traders.

27: Adventureland: Climb Tarzans Treehouse
The Kingdom of Four Rivers - Guy Salvidge

 

Read a book by an author whose initials can be found in "Tarzan" or that has a tree on the cover.

 

 

The Kindle book has bamboo the cover.

The giant stuff is treelike.

Frog in a Pot of Cold Water Over the Fire: "The Four Thousand, The Eight Hundred" by Greg Egan
The Four Thousand, the Eight Hundred - Greg Egan,Dominic Harman

After reading the latest Egan’s work, I got thinking about the Caribbean Islands. I understand that the Caribbean Islands were discovered by successive explorers from Europe. I understand that Slaves from Africa were taken to these Islands as were White Indentured Workers, a polite name for White Slaves, by the people that had purchased Estates on these Islands. In this process the Indigenous peoples of these Islands the Carib Indians were to all intents and purposes wiped out, so for people of African descent to claim that they have a right to present day Islands is a nonsense. Drawing a parallel with the two factions in Egan’s work, I do not deny it benefited some people, but don't kid ourselves that it boosted the living standards of the ordinary people. This myth was invented back in the 50's or 60's by some Caribbean professor to give those of African descent a sense of grievance against those that imported their ancestors, mind you he stopped short of saying that it was their fellow Africans that enslaved them in the first place. I suspect the feeling of distrust is true of all Countries, it’s well known and it’s called Xenophobia. That’s what a stake in Egan’s piece using the trappings of SF.

 

if you are into SF, read on.

Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire
Pocket Apocalypse: InCryptid, Book Four - Seanan McGuire

I really do love this series, although this was the weakest so far. I think that Aeslin mice are one of the most inspired creations in urban fantasy, and they were used to significant effect here, which was by far the most enjoyable part of the book.

 

Overall, I am lukewarm on Alex, who was the main character of this book - I much prefer Verity, and I am quite excited for the focus on Antimony in the next book. And Alex's love interest, Shelby, is a likeable character, but her family is almost universally ugh-worthy.
