The Prophecy

 

Kaleem Malkendy is different – and on Terrestra, different is no way to be.
Everything about Kaleem marks him out form the rest: the blond hair and dark skin, the uncomfortable cave where he lives and the fact that he doesn’t know his father. He’s used to unwelcome attention, but even so he’d feel better if some strange old man didn’t keep following him around.
That man introduces himself and begins to explain the Babel Prophecy – and everything in Kaleem’s life changes forever.

The Prophecy is a novel I hadn't heard much about until I picked it up last week. As someone who adores all things futuristic the premise defintely appealed to me, but I hadn't seen many reviews and so I wasn't sure what to expect. As it turns out, I was pleasantly surprised by this absorbing and unusual story set in the Earth's far distant future.
do not usually read young adult novels but I have to say this one had me gripped from the start. Set over 1000 years in the future, The Prophecy, as the name suggests, is centred around fulfilling a prophecy about peace at a time when people from different planets do not accept people for their differences and hence do not always live in harmony. The main protagonist Kaleem is unwittingly part of this prophecy. He has always been chastised for being different- but he is more different than he realises and is a Peace Child who has to fulfil The Babel Prophecy and restore univeral harmony. This book is a quest but one that deals with love, war,languages, being different and hope.
really enjoyed reading this book. There's loads of great descriptions about future technology and how different people live. The main character is likeable and although he's the hero of the story he makes mistakes which he learns from and isn't perfect, making him much more realistic.
