A Truly Great Blend of Genres - The Ophelia Prophecy by Sharon Lynn Fisher

Book Scorecard


A truly great blend of genres, which results in a fascinating tale with all of my favorite elements.
Fantasy World
Exotic, lush, amazing. Just wow.
You'll have to wait for it, but when they kiss... FIRE!
Great heroine who faces problems like an intelligent, adult woman. Every character is complex – no caricatures here.
Fabulous plot put together like the Mona Lisa made out of mosaic tiles. End is slightly rushed.

The description doesn't do this book justice. It's everything science fiction stories should be, and too often aren't. The hero and heroine wake up on the edge of a lake without remembering how they got there. As they investigate each other, the reader gets to go along for the ride discovering an exotic new world full of genetically engineered wonders. Each character has their own agenda and motivations, which seem completely reasonable, however, are often in conflict with one another. There are romantic and erotic elements, but they mostly take a back seat. Overall, this is one of the best books I've read lately, and I recommend it to anyone who likes science fiction, urban fantasy, or post apocalyptic stories. The Ophelia Prophecy is pricey at $9-10 for the ebook version, but well worth the cost.
