Book & Author Details:
Prophet (Bridge & Sword #8) by J C Andrijeski
Publication date: 17th January 2018
Genres: Paranormal, Romance, Adult
“In through the out door. Further down. Below…”
Allie and Revik race against the clock, looking for the remaining names on a mysterious list of humans and seers meant to rebuild the world after the apocalypse––hopefully before Shadow kills them all. Meanwhile, a mysterious new player starts buying up List seers and humans on the black market faster than Revik and Allie can save them.
Whoever they are, they seem to have their own copy of the Lists, and while they don’t appear to be killing them, more and more Listers disappear into Dubai, the most heavily guarded of Shadow’s quarantine cities. Before Allie can decide her next move, another group appears, claiming to be loyal to her.
As Allie finds out more about this new group, however, everything in her world starts to unravel. Worse, the people closest to her seem to be turning against her, including––maybe especially––her own husband.
NOTE: An alternate version of this book was previously published as part of the “ALLIE’S WAR” series (this version has been heavily revised/edited prior to re-release).
Standalone novel. No cliffhanger.
*Warning: this book contains graphic language, sex, and violence. Mature readers only. Not intended for young readers.*
PROPHET is book 8 in the Bridge & Sword series. It is also related to the Quentin Black World, and takes place in the wider history/world of the seers.
Next in the Bridge & Sword world: DRAGON (Bridge & Sword Series #9). Or if you’d like to read more about seers, check out BLACK IN WHITE (Quentin Black Mystery #1), which occurs in a version of Earth much closer to our own.
THE BRIDGE & SWORD WORLD is a dark, gritty science fiction and apocalyptic series with romantic (and sexy) elements, starring Alyson Taylor and her partner, dark and dangerous infiltrator, Dehgoies Revik. For fans of gritty, character-driven science fiction and fantasy worlds, filled with twists and turns and backstabbing betrayals, with heroes and villains who can be equally relatable (and sometimes the same people). The Bridge & Sword books span continents and historical periods as Allie and Revik try to save the human and seer races from destroying one another, and keep their friends and loved ones alive in the process.

This series is exquisite literary torment – and I can’t help but come back for more.
After the last book, with all the emotions and the trauma, I thought that the author might give Allie and Revik a bit of a break. You know, just a small one. After all they have been through, they deserve it. I should have known better.
This, though? This focuses so closely on their relationship, that the intrusion feels far more personal. A more disturbing invasion.
It goes without saying that there are some big reveals. And there are elements which are difficult to read. But this was nevertheless as much of a page turner as each and every one of the preceding volumes, if not more so. I can’t help but want to read more.
Bring on Book 9!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I’m a USA Today bestselling author of sexy, apocalyptic and cyberpunk-y paranormal mystery, alternate history, urban fantasy & supernatural suspense, often with a metaphysical bent.
While it might seem like I have a (perhaps overly?) friendly relationship with my dark side, if you read my stuff, you’ll discover pretty quick that, at base and in my heart, I’m a big, sappy, pie in the sky idealist, and that I always want the light to win, love to win, the good guys to win, compassion to win, the bad guys to be redeemed or at least to find love…even if they have to crawl through mud and blood and crazy sex and betrayal and broken fingernails to get there.
Of course, not all of them make it…but I always hope that they will.
Other stuff: I have a background in journalism and political history, and a Master’s degree in the latter. I love to travel and to interact with different cultures and histories and I’ve traveled a fair bit (although never enough – there are always new places to see!). I’ve also lived a lot of different places, including all over the United States where I was born, as well as stints in Europe, Australia and now Asia, including a few years in India and now a few in Thailand.
Currently, I live and work full-time as a writer in Bangkok, Thailand, where I have a beautiful view of a Buddhist wat right out the window while I write.
