About the Book

Religion, science fiction, and fantasy merge in an epic interplanetary


The empath Hickory Lace is grieving over the fiery death of the alien being she once considered the son of God. But a tiny flicker of hope that Kar could still be alive brings her back to the Alien Corps for a perilous mission on the Bikashi home world.

The Galactic Alliance are desperate to recover the symbiotic high-tech sword of Connat before the enemy can use it to invade Earth, and although the Teacher’s self-sacrifice burns in Hickory’s heart, the horror she uncovers on the adversary’s planet ignites a fierce new purpose.

So good that I couldn't put it down-- 'Fractured Prophecy'is the fourth book in the Prosperine series by P.J. Mcdermott and perhaps thebest one yet. Hickory Lace, the badass, tough-talking heroine and space commander from the first three books in the series, is back again and in this book, things get a little more personal for her. Still devastated by the loss of her mentor, a man who she called 'The Teacher,' Hickory is thrown for another loop when a life pod is discovered to have escaped from the Arc ship before it exploded. Hickory must investigate the pod with her fellow soldiers to discover the truth and what the future will hold for what's left of mankind. This book does a great job of catching up the more casual reader right from the get-go. Everything you need to know about the world is laid out cleverly and with style, unlike some sci-fi series that tend to info dump all over you for the first five pages. I had a great experience reading this. I loved Hickory and her combination of level-headed commander versus her inner struggle as a woman who has recently lost someone that she cared very deeply for. I loved Jess and Gareth's characters and the way they complimented Hickory and helped her along on her journey. The world building was fascinating and extensive. I love to sink my teeth into a great sci-fi book with a well written universe and this really fit the bill. McDermott's universe is so creative and well thought out.The basis in Christianity and religion was very interesting and not something I've ever seen in sci-fi before. This book reminded me why I love this genre and how excited I get when I find a great new sci-fi series. 5 out of 5 stars! Mythical Books, guest review by Nora S.
