Rider Juliet Jermaine lost her Olympic horse, Gothic, and his rider, Isabella Levine, in a horrific unprovoked road rage attack. Isabella’s murder is investigated by psychic detective Rosetta Barrett, whose earlier warning about the attack was ignored by Juliet. She discovers that the murder is only a small part of a cycle of revenge and retribution born from a terrible atrocity that occurred in an Apache Indian territory centuries ago.
The concept of Spirit of Prophecy by Jill Hughes is a familiar one, but the combination of paranormal, crime, and sci-fi genres with an intriguing premise will hook any readers who really appreciate a healthy fusion of themes. Set in the near future of 2021, there’s an interesting proposal regarding the role of AI in our lives, which I think is easily plausible. The characters are complex and well developed. It’s easy to empathize with Rosetta’s situation. Her otherworldly ability doesn’t compensate for her failed marriage and her separation from her children. That said, I do question her judgment in some situations. Juliet is also easy to root for, especially when she is betrayed by people that are closest to her.
The prose is clear cut and the transitions between different characters’ POVs as well as the timeline are deftly handled. Even though I feel some events could be developed faster, the overall pacing is good. The plot is well thought out, and much more intricate and extensive than I had anticipated. The story line is mainly crime-based but there’s a good dose of well-timed humor and light moments. Overall, Spirit of Prophecy is a roller-coaster journey of intrigue and suspense, a solid read from Hughes.”
