Spirit Of Prophecy by J.J. Hughes
About The Book
If you murder your soulmate to save your tribe, when and how will revenge and retribution arrive? Karma is coming for you. Olympic event rider Juliet Jermaine may run, but can she hide…? A gifted psychic but an emotional wreck, Rosetta Barrett is much more than a simple Criminal Investigation Detective seconded to a sleepy, rural English constabulary. She’s part of the International psychic CID and also a high-ranking member of EPIS (Elite Paranormal Intelligence Services) a super-secret, Inter-Governmental, global organization, based in Dulce, USA. EPIS is tasked with dealing with the new realities of the twenty-first century –the rise of AI and ensuring robotic deep-learning doesn’t lead to humanity’s destruction; alien visitation and cracking their telepathic communication codes; expanding psychic powers, including prophecy, in order to automate crime prediction and prevention. Also, Inter-generational Karma and time-travel, as they straighten out and atone for the crime generated wrinkles causing contorted disasters throughout history. When Juliet Jermaine’s Olympic Champion horse Gothic, and its teenage stable-hand rider, are callously murdered, in what appears to be a terrorist-inspired road-rage incident, Detective Barrett immediately knows there is more to this than meets the eye and feels a powerful karmic connection to an old Apache Chief and his horse, dating back to the 1800’s. Gold-medallist rider Juliet, and Rosetta must unravel the karmic connection and also nail the present day criminals before another cycle of revenge and retribution is unleashed. Can they stop the death count inexorably rising?With Barrett’s ex-husband, a power-obsessed Foreign Office Diplomat to Russia being the prime suspect, Jermaine not taking the karmic connection seriously and the EPIS time-portal out of action, since the ET’s unexpectedly hijacked it, is Detective Barrett in way too deep this time? The murder investigation takes first Rosetta and then Juliet to Southern Ireland, where they both fall for the devilishly handsome, Irish-Traveller horse dealer, Tommy Rafferty. Does Tommy know more about the road rage deaths than he’s letting on and ultimately will he betray his soul mate, to save his tribe?Finally, seeking closure, Juliet and Rosetta find themselves near EPIS headquarters, around a camp- fire on the red-tinged, wide rolling plains of the nearby Native American reservation.
I’ll admit from the beginning that I don’t usually read paranormal books, but this one caught my eye since the very first moment.
Rosetta, the main character, has some personal problems related to her “psychic” powers, yes, you can’t believe it or not, but the Elite Paranormal Intelligence Services prove that she is not as “crazy” as some people thought! She is brave and fight for her beliefs, so better don’t play with her because she is not easy to fool! She is not a super woman, don’t get me wrong, she has problems, big problems, but she feels real, human with troubles that we all could relate to, but something that she will never hide is her abilities, and that made me really proud of her!
This is a case to read with an open mind, it doesn’t matter if you believe or not, because this is a very entertaining story, full of mysteries and surprises. The author has done an amazing job making little quests around the story that make the reader think and try to be a detective on their own!
The mystery is quite complex, when a prized horse is killed along with a young woman who was taking care of him, no one knows what really happened… Did the killer simply try to kill the horse or the horse’s owner, Juliet? There are some interesting characters involved in the mystery, some of them you’ll like whereas some of them possibly not, but that’s what I like of the good books, the variety makes the story more realistic like real life!
This is a story that will surprise you, it attracts the reader and transports it to another world! You just have to let the “Spirit of Prophecy” take you! 😉
About The Author
Jill Hughes was born in Cottingley, a quaint little village in West Yorkshire, UK. Her grandfather Arthur Shackleton [was related to Sir Ernest Shackleton, the polar explorer – but the furthest grand-dad travelled perhaps was up the road to the men-only social club, but then he rose early and worked long and hard and filled the house with the amazing aromas of freshly baked cakes and bread..so could not be kneading dough and adventuring at the same time. Mouths always have to be fed, don’t they and baking is hard, hot, thirsty work] Jill Hughes parents Margaret and Arnold Simpson lived with her grandfather above the shop, the house was large, old and rambling with a proliferation of attics and spider filled cellars, if you cared to look closely – generally the author did not, preferring to spend her time playing catch, hop-scotch and the like in the cobbled streets, catching minnows in the beck [a small stream] or swimming beneath the waterfall which is famous for fairies, after two local girls [Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths] photographed them in 1917 [Or did they?]. Subsequently the photo’s proved to be fake, and this inspired a movie called ‘Fairy Tale: A True Story’ which starred Peter O’Toole playing Sir Arthur Conan Doyle [the creator/author of Sherlock Holmes.] He was taken in by the hoax, but then again to this day Jill Hughes believes in elves/fairies/mermaids/unicorns and all things Elemental and Other Worldly.
