""Kill red-hair girl "
Scaled creatures of legend circle above the flaming castle, shrieking their hunger for Rhiannon, the red-haired daughter of prophecy. Dark beings tried to kill her at birth, the moment the prophecy was uttered, and now nearly sixteen years later they try again. The winged horrors are massing once more. Their evil masters, the Great Ones, are poised to strike the land and seize the throne. Only this one young woman stands in their way. And so the dragon packs go hunting. In this land, strength of arm and skill with sword are required for survival. But no human blade can penetrate demon skin. Only those who can do battle on the spirit plane can render these creatures vulnerable to sword and arrow. Rhiannon is daughter of lords. Daughter of the sword. Daughter of prophecy.

Reviews - What do customers think about Daughter Of Prophecy?
Great Spiritual Warfare Fiction! Sep 28, 2008
I couldn't put it down! A great combination of prophecy and spiritual warfare fiction! It would have been nice to have a glossary for some of the more 'foreign' or unusual words though, for both pronounciation and meaning. I'm really looking forward to Owens' next book!
Fantastic! Mar 21, 2007
The rest of the reviews give beautiful summaries of this book. I just want to add a few things. On the technical/storytelling side, Mr. Owens writes extremely well and this facilitates the excellent storyline that keeps the reader engaged.
Concerning the spiritual/Christian side of the book. This is the deepest book that I have read by a Christian author. By depth, I mean his representation of spiritual warfare is right on. Though many call this book a fantasty -- it is not fantasy but reality when it comes to the things of God.
So -- Mr. Owens, if you read these reviews. I just want to say thank you -- God is using you mightily and I am looking forward to your next book!
Can't wait for next... Dec 30, 2006
I really enjoyed Mr. Owens' book. Kept your interest and leaves you interested in the characters-wanting more. For all those who are looking for other good authors while waiting for next novel-check out Stephen Lawhead.
Excellent Dec 19, 2006
This book was an excellent first novel. I cannot believe the publisher has not picked up the trilogy! I keep checking back in the bookstores, but no second book has appeared. With the great need for engaging Christian fiction, this book stands a league above some of the other trite books that call themselves good reading! I implore Strang Communications to reconsider and publish this series.
We could use a little more Christian fantasy Jul 19, 2006
All the previous reviews tell you what the basic premise of this book is, a tantalizing bit of plot, that it is well-written, AND that it is an excellent first novel for author Owens. I agree with those statements.
But what is not told here is that new Christian fantasy is far and few between (his publisher put out four. Will there be more?) The Christian publishers--for years--stayed away from it and only re-published C.S. Lewis' Narnia or sent you to read Lord of the Rings and general market fantasy. A smattering here and there, but not a stronghold as a genre.
This book is well done, and if you appreciate Christian fantasy, you should be buying this. Why? 1. Because you like the genre and we all have said it's good. You'll enjoy it if you like Christian fantasy and a good story. 2. To let publishing companies know that we want more. 3. I really like it that there is a strong woman character and she meets her match in every way--definitely can appeal to women.
I hope Miles Owens is writing more of this sort of book. He'll only get better, and is already a really strong writer. More, Miles, more!
