Genre: Adult Fantasy
Pages: 211

Blood Prophecy

Amber Stone, once a child prodigy, has just become curator of a special collection of Macedonian artifacts for the Seattle Museum of Natural History. Chloe, a prodigy of a different sort, holds a position at the museum focusing on tribal art. The two become fast friends, united by Amber's unsettling dreams and Chloe’s unorthodox ways of dealing with them. Two strangers arrive in town, bringing with them a prophecy recorded more than three-thousand years ago, a prophecy that places Amber directly in the midst of a battle that has spanned a millennia.

Suddenly the reader is swept into a land of ancient secrets while trying to keep calm and acknowledge the present day.  Supernatural and modern inventions work together to create a believable plot, and riveting story line.  Through the novel you get the intimate viewings of three lives: Michael (Machiel), Amber, and Chloe.  Travel with them to learn what happens when everything you thought you knew is turned upside down.  Through seamless and continual change in perspective, Jones manages to keep the audience wondering what could happen next.  This book is slightly graphic, and I would personally give it a PG 13 rating, at the very least.

Barb Jone’s Bio:

Having been born and raised in Hawaii, I loved telling stories ever since I was a child about vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, and witches.  I was a little girl who loved scary stories, much to my mother’s dismay.  The scarier – the better.  Hawaii was a perfect place for stories until I moved to Seattle.  I decided to turn a love for the supernatural into writing stories to see if others would love them as much as I do.  Currently, I live in Florida but since I’m a Seattle girl at heart, my stories take place in the Northwest.  I continue to write supernatural stories of vampires, werewolves, witches, and more while enjoying the beaches and sunshine.  I also love to help others and give back to my community.
