Prophecy has grown up within her families secure compound and knows nothing of the vampire world outside her household. One night she decides she's had enough and ventures out. She literally runs into Valentine, a member of an opposing family.
First off, I have to say, that the cover image doesn't reflect the story line. I would have preferred an image of Prophecy and Valentine dressed for the Ball. The cover infers sexual content, but really its sexual yearnings. Before they can form a relationship, both of them have to learn more about themselves. They come from opposing families and relationships between families are outlawed. They have to learn enough about themselves so they can overcome these ingrained prejudices.
|My interpretation of Prophecy's amulet|
Life long prejudices, dis-regard for the human race, and fierce loyalties are all strong themes in this story and are what make it worth reading. I'm still not cognisant of the actual prophecy, but I think that is part of the story line, and that it will become clearer as story and Prophecy's understanding of her place within the vampires grows.
Thanks to author Felicity Heaton for use of the cover image.
