Would you sacrifice friendship and love in order to save your planet?

Being a teenager is tough, especially when you have to pretend to be something you’re not, and you’re in love with someone you shouldn’t. 115 years ago, a small planet called Arcadia was invaded by a vicious alien race and nearly destroyed. Cut off from their resources, the Arcadians turned to Earth for help. A group of Arcadian explorers discovered a Prophecy that claimed their salvation lay in the hands of two children from Earth. To ensure their safety, the Arcadian Council sent their most gifted youngsters to Earth to act as protectors. Samantha is one of them.

To succeed in her mission she must learn to control her Arcadian powers and keep her true identity from her best friend, and the girl she swore to protect, Alexia. But Samantha will soon realize that nothing is as it seems. Someone is trying to prevent the Prophecy from taking place and the prophecy boy hasn't been found yet. There is also a new drug circulating at school that is turning students into freakishly strong menaces.

To make matters worse, distractions keep getting in her way. Such as her love/hate relationship with her “cousin” Matthew. Or her confused feelings toward popular and mysterious Julian. She wants nothing more than to be free to live her life. But the survival of Arcadia depends on her and her friends. Free will is not an option.

 
 The Prophecy of Arcadia M.H. Soars (Arcadian Wars, #1)

The Prophecy of Arcadia (Arcadian Wars, #1)Their planet was nearly destroyed and a Prophecy claiming two children from Earth held their survival and salvation in their hands. The Arcadian council sent their finest and most gifted children to Earth to protect these special Earth children at all costs, ensuring they meet and fulfill the Prophecy.

These Arcadians are teens, dealing with the same emotional, angst-filled moments as an Earth teen would, but for those around them, it could be deadly. Not only must they keep their identity a secret, they must learn to take control of their powers, their raging hormones and their hearts.
Earth child, Alexia has no idea her best friend is an alien, or that her role in the Prophecy has been determined. She must be kept safe at all costs, while the search is on for the second child of the Prophecy. The possible destiny of both planets lie in the hands of a small group of teens who must also discover who is attempting to stop the Prophecy from coming to fruition.

Have two alien groups come to Earth to create a new battleground for survival? Young hearts will be caught up in the turmoil and angst of forbidden love, there is nowhere to turn for help and trust is becoming a rare commodity, not to mention all of this must be kept from Alexia. Will their plans come unraveled with a slip of the tongue? Is the Prophecy wrong?

Share this tale through the eyes of Alexia, as she struggles with unanswered questions, a new found budding romance, Samantha, her best friend who is filled with secrets and lies by omission, and Matt, who has his own issues in the ring of young love.

The Prophecy of Arcadia by M.H. Soars does NOT cut corners when it comes to high emotional action! So may lies, so many secrets, ad just when Alexia longs to make her own choices, time is running out to find the other half of the Prophecy. Her life is a precious commodity that must be kept safe. Sam and Matt have their own issues to come to terms with, forbidden attraction, powers that rage out of control and a ticking clock that is counting down the minutes to their success or failure!

M.H. Soars has captured the feel of teens in crisis, as seen through their own eyes, minds and hearts, woven into a tale of survival and the mystery of The Prophecy. The tension runs hot, the characters each personify a true to life teen not ready to face what lies ahead alone. From start to finish, there is never a stop in the action, whether it be romantic angst, cover-ups or deception. What is asked of these teens is monumental they are feeling it. Woven together like a patchwork quilt, M.H. Soars has done herself proud!

I received this copy from M.H. Soars in exchange for my honest review.
