Review of The Prophet of Panamindorah by Abigail Hilton
This is something different. It is well read and works as an Audiobook. I originally listened to her other work - The Guild of The Cowry Catchers - which is set after this trilogy. She has created a unique world, with its own species, yet manages to convey human emotions to her characters.
The Prophet trilogy tells of the coming of age of its main character Corellian, yet provides a backdrop of war, scheming, backstabbing and excitement. Many characters take part, each race having its protagonist and reflecting the nature of the beasts which form it. These semi-human creatures love, fight and die amidst a world of magic. Although at times it flirts with being a YA novel it is definitely targetted at a more mature audience.
Split into concise episodes and manageable parts, the author reads well and captured me very quckly. I have now gone back to listen to the second series with pleasure. Although this is now availabe in a Kindle version, I listened to all of the podiobooks one after another and will listen to them again.
Well done Abigail and I look forward to further books in this series.
My rating is a clear FOUR AND A HALF out of FIVE.
