Author: Holly Roberds

Title: Prophecy Girl (The Five Orders Series Book 1)


Loving her is not only forbidden, it could bring about the end of the world.

 I am not a man. I am a weapon that fights the forces of darkness. The desire to make Emma mine goes against everything I’ve been trained to do. Yet she’s all I want.

 When a demon from hell crashes into the liquor store where Emma works, we find ourselves caught in an ancient prophecy that has been set into motion, and it may bring about the end of the world.

 Emma may appear to be a civilian who’s spent most of her life with her nose stuck in a book, but there is more to her than anyone knows. And I can’t stop Emma from turning my world inside out.

 Dark secrets are spilling out, destroying everything I once believed, and bloodthirsty monsters are climbing out from every corner. They must kill the chosen one, and I will do everything to stop it.


But as the hell beasts begin to close in, I am left with one impossible choice.


Save the girl, or save the world.


Prophecy Girl is a gripping, slow burn, urban fantasy romance perfect for fans of Ilona Andrews and Karen Marie Moning.
