Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope...I loved this book. It was the adventure and the strangeness of it all that pulled me in. After I heard what this book was about I was so curious. Prophecy is very thrilling and strange, but I like books that way. I thought everything about this book was unique and well done. I really enjoyed reading it and finished it after a couple of hours from starting. My mom says I'm ridiculous but I just have a hunger to know what's next.
Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.
My favorite character in this book is probably Kira herself. She is incredibly brave. She is insulted and feared by almost everyone, but she doesn't let that slow her down. There were a lot of great characters in this book. I'm the worst at remembering names, and the fact that they're strange names doesn't help my short term memory (that is non-existent XD). I know this book isn't for everyone, but it's not all about magical stuff. It's about hunting demons and killing them with weapons. The magic isn't in people, it's in items. It's also humorous sometimes.
People who liked books like Salt, Percy Jackson/Heroes Of Olympus, or movies like, I, Frankenstein would like this book too. I can't wait until I can read the next one!
Love you all for reading through my strange reviews!
