The Prophet: A Shepherd Thriller

The Prophet: A Shepherd Thriller - Ethan Cross The Prophet is a well written and well thought out book. There are many twists and turns. I liked that there were surprises throughout the book, so I was kept guessing. This book wasn't a comfortable read. There was a lot of death and often the death was gruesome. The author also explores the line between good and evil. Often the line is very blurry. Marcus struggles with this question throughout the book. As he does his work for The Shepherd group he finds it is getting too easy for him and his heart seems to grow colder. It will be interesting to see how he deals with his conclusions in the next book.

When I went into this book, I wasn't aware that it was the second in a series. The thing that I didn't like about the book was that I kept feeling like I was missing information. It took me a while to connect the dots between all of the characters. Therefore, it took me a while to get into the book. I also felt like there were a lot of characters to keep straight. I wonder if I had read the first book, The Shepherd, would I have felt more comfortable with the story.

Despite this, I think The Prophet is worth a read. You may want to pick up The Shepherd first.
