Prophet’s Journey

Prophet’s Journey: Matthew Cox

Imagine living your young life in captivity because others enslaved you wanting you for your powers and second sight. Although Althea is relatively 11 or maybe older when she was found and brought to live with her new family, she is called the Prophet as her healing powers and ingenuity plus sixth sense are so acute that she is able to save lives, restore lost limbs and sense when someone has a “sick” and knows how to get them to expel it from their bodies . Miracles are seen and the people adore and revere her but Althea does not see herself that way and because cannot read or write and is not allowed to attend school, she is forced to use an interactive learning tablet to teach her words but this tablet even comments on her progress making her feel unsure of herself wanting to learn from a person but Father says she has to catch up first but she can learn but in her own way.

Den is her boyfriend and she is learning the meaning of wifing and is not ready for that. She explains how the slave girls wind up wifing and that she and .Den are close but not that close. Danger is everywhere and the way of the streets requires careful vigilance and safety in order not to wind up being taken again and remaining with her new family. But Althea is at home and gears something odd in the middle of the night and exploring causes her to be captured and not able to move as they locked her up in a cell and she had to find a way out, restore her injured body, take account of where she was attempting  to find a safe place to hide. Father and Karina were killed and now she had to escape what the Many had in store for her but she’s 11 and smart but still a child. The author created a character that is resourceful, smart and has the will to survive as she finds her way along desolate roads looking for good, people and a way to rid herself of the shackles. But things get tense and then she finds a wheelchair that she uses to get around until she is found by a group if children and taken in hopefully to revive some help, kindness and freedom do she could get back home.

Following them she enters a world below the surface of people who fear the outside world and whose population is slowly dying of unusual sicknesses. Althea wonders why the do not know of her and yet they accept her to a point and even think she is a god of some sort. But helping you cure so many from their Sick, the author graphically and vividly describes how she saves these lives and you can smell the stench and see the images clearly as they are described. But when she wants to leave, they say she is already home and must remain and not dare go against the spy monsters and silver men.

Two members of this civilization where she winds up are about to journey to the cursed place in journey of Queen Kye. But the discussion centered on the fact that she is not of the Transit and not a royal and can they send a child to her death?

Pajama and Ooru would go with her and hope they can hide from the Silver Men. Then they explained about the ancients who said they’d be punished if they leave. Did the Transit gods really exist and if so, did they care about the people in the settlements? Officer David was someone she trusted, and he told her about the machines in the Badlands that were to clean it up but didn’t. The fact that Althea was able to work with these two young people, form bond of trust and hopefully find a way to safety before anything happens. But, would the Silver Men find them and when they encounter rats and other creatures how would she be able to make them friendly and not be harmed. Risking her life to find their Queen allows her true character to come out as she lives to help people, heal them and hopefully make each world she lives in safer and better.

The wheelbot or the machine tried to destroy her and her two friends but Althea is blindsided by something named Teal who ties her up , kidnaps her again is has been paid quite a bit of money to capture and bring her to someone else. Fear gets her but her spunk and smart aleck personality eventually wins out as Teal her captor learns the power of the Prophet and they might have to form an alliance. The author brings out the issues of truth, trust, justice, race difference, emotions and an 11-year-old child who seems capable of taking on anything or anyone in her way.
