Blog Tour: Blood of the Prophet

Blood of the Prophet
Kat Ross
(The Fourth Element #2)
Publication date: September 12th 2016
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Visionary. Alchemist. Savior. Saint.

The Prophet Zarathustra has been called many things. Now he spends his time drawing pictures of weird-looking goats. That’s what happens when you’ve been stuck in a prison cell for two hundred years. But the man who might be mad, and is definitely supposed to be dead, has suddenly become very valuable again…

It’s only been a few weeks since Nazafareen escaped the King’s dungeons with her daēva, Darius. She hoped never to set foot in the empire again, but the search for the Prophet has led them to the ancient city of Karnopolis. They have to find him before Alexander of Macydon burns Persepolae, and Darius’s mother with it. But they’re not the only ones looking.

The necromancer Balthazar has his own plans for the Prophet, and so does the sinister spymaster of the Numerators. As Nazafareen is drawn in to a dangerous game of cat and mouse, her newfound powers take a decidedly dark turn. Only the Prophet understands the secret of her gift, but the price of that knowledge may turn out to be more than Nazafareen is willing to pay…

The character development is also very well laid out to the readers, there are moments of sympathy and rage over the characters’ every decision though at some point I feel like there is some thing missing… (see full review here)

Blood of the Prophet

Ratings: Ratings - Copy (4)

The book started off deep under the Karnopolis, where the Prophet is imprisoned giving us readers a little tickle on the thrill. Its not as fast paced as the first book as the beginning but it all started picking up right after the fifth chapter or so. There’s also other POV’s involved unlike in the first book where its mainly focused on Nazafareen’s, I love how we get to see through the eyes of other characters especially from the supposed antagonist of the book. The book is so action-packed and thrilling, I love it… (see my full review here
