The Prophecy of the Stones by Flavia Bujor

1 Jun

“Three girls.  Three stones.  One destiny.”- Front Cover.  Jade, Opal, and Amber all live their separate lives in a magical realm.  Jade is the daughter of a duke, Opal lives with her semi-wealthy relatives, and Amber is a peasant.  They have no knowledge of each other until they are kicked out of their old lives with nothing but a black velvet pouch.  That is what happens to the three girls in the beginning of the Prophecy of the Stones by Flavia Bujor.  It is, as you can probably guess, a fantasy book.  Jade, Opal, and Amber are, predictably, the three Stones of the Prophecy.  Together, they must go on a journey to save their freedom, and the freedom of countless enemies.

This book is pretty good.  I’ve read books that I liked better, but I’ve also read books that I liked a lot less (meaning: the plague book).  It can get a little confusing at times, but I like the parts that I can understand better.  For example, the chapter will suddenly switch from Jade, Opal, and Amber’s journey to the Nameless One, to a random girl in a hospital in present-day Paris!  See how that could be really confusing?  And when it’s on Lade, Opal, and Amber, it will be Amber’s thoughts for a few pages, then it will be two lines of Opal’s thoughts, then a paragraph telling you what Jade is thinking.  That gets confusing as well.  Oh, well.  I give this book a solid √.
