The Thirteenth Prophey by T Lucas Earle

An interesting start for the PI Burke and the short story that unveils. The prophets that seem to control things have hired Burke to find the prophet Defiance, only to discover that he was poisoned.

Set in a futuristic world, they are represented similar to robots, all made up of thirteen different components that come from the Prophets – Defiance, Care, Bliss etc.

Seems quite unusual, hard to get a grasp of what is going on and how things are termed. Everything about this novel speaks futuristic, quite fast-paced, the reader instantly gets chucked into the plot. Simple wording, gets straight to the point, no preamble, nothing fancy about it.

It is a very unique story line, although the characters are a mix of ‘Personalities’, they still feel real in some way. The story line easily pulls me in, because the author does a great job of conveying the plot it doesn’t have to be long to get the point across.

An interesting end to the book, unexpected and very fitting for the type of short story it was. I was pleasantly surprised by the overall turnout, and just goes to show how great short stories are.

4/5 stars.
