Prophecy of Days

Author: Christy Raedeke
Review Writer: Book Girl
Ever wonder about what will happen with the Mayan prophecy of 2012? This book tells about a girl called Caity whose parents decide to move (with Caity) to an inherited Scottish castle which they will convert into an Inn. Caity has always dreamed of getting discovered for something, whether it be her acting, painting, singing or any other abilities. She never dreamed that it would come in such a different way. After moving in to the Scottish castle, Caity discovers a hidden room that she unlocks with a necklace containing a strange symbol. Soon she discovers a prophecy with her name in it, foretelling that Caity will be a hero and save the world.

A gripping tale of discovery, suspense and good versus evil.
