Tales from The TBR Pile: Prophet by R. J. Larson

8 Jan

Tales from The TBR Pile features books that are languishing on my shelves; books that deserve to be highlighted even though I haven’t read them. This month I am spotlighting Prophet by R. J. Larson, book 1 in the Books of the Infinite series. A fantasy with a Biblical feel, it has 208 5-star reviews on Amazon. If fantasy is your thing, then make sure to check it out.


209710_w185Ela Roeh of Parne doesn’t understand why her beloved Creator, the Infinite, wants her to become His prophet. She’s undignified and bad-tempered, and at age seventeen she’s much too young. In addition, no prophet of Parne has ever been a girl. Worst of all, as Parne’s elders often warn, if she agrees to become the Infinite’s prophet, Ela knows she will die young.

Yet she can’t imagine living without Him. Determined to hear the Infinite’s voice, Ela accepts the sacred vinewood branch and is sent to bring the Infinite’s word to a nation torn apart by war. There she meets a young ambassador determined to bring his own justice for his oppressed people. As they form an unlikely partnership, Ela battles how to balance the leading of her heart with the leading of the Infinite.
