5 out of 5 (exceptional)
Cheree Alsop has long been a favourite author of mine and I was delighted to find out she had started another series, Demon Guard. PROPHECY is the first book and we are introduced to a twenty-two year old man, Raith, who is older than he should be due to his experiences. He nearly loses his life trying to rescue someone who didn't need rescuing. His life is saved and new abilities are awakened.
This was a brilliant way to start a new series. Both Raith and Nox are instantly relatable and you understand why they both have rescuer complexes. The supporting characters are a fantastic addition but, for me, it is the relationship between Raith and Nox where the book shines.
It isn't often I give book one in a series 5-stars but there is just no other option for this book. With action, sorrow, hope, and NOX!!!! how could I not? This is a world to sink into and I really can't wait to read more. Absolutely recommended by me.
