I wasn’t really sure what to make of The Dragonfly Prophecy when it first landed on my doorstep as I had never heard of this novel before, nor did I have any preconceptions. When I first saw it, I thought this book was all about dragonflies. It is not. Whether or not this is a good thing or bad thing is for you to decide, but, I repeat, The Dragonfly Prophecy is not about dragonflies. It is; however, about 17 year old Lexi Blane who seems to be living the perfect life. She has a boyfriend who adores her and parents who’d do anything for her, but there’s just one problem – Lexi has sudden and inexplicable fainting spells.
In addition, she has odd dreams when she’s unconscious, or maybe reality is actually just a dream and the dreams are reality. Lexi’s life is turned upside down as she is suddenly thrust into a war between two worlds, reality and the alternative reality, but first she needs to figure out what’s real and what’s just a dream, who she can and cannot trust, and most importantly – which side she’s on. Two guys, from different worlds, are fighting for her affections and whilst she’s in love with both, she knows she has to make a choice; however, one of them is lying to her – but which one is it? Lexi’s life quickly spirals out of control as she finds out she is, in fact, ‘gifted’ with special abilities and with these abilities comes a long list of responsibilities. She soon realises that there may be other forces at work in her life, was it fate that she survived the fatal car accident that killed her parents?
developing throughout the book and so is the plot and this keeps the story fresh and interesting throughout. There is a sense of mystery and suspense surrounding both William and Chace – the two love interests – and the reader is left completely in the dark as to their true intentions right until the very end. There are lots of twists and turns in this novel that I wasn’t expecting even though I knew to look out for them!
