According to ancient prophecy, a woman will come from Earth to bear a child who will end the warring between the Ramekah and Andreas clans, warring that has plagued the hold folk of Zandar for hundreds of years. On the tail of a magical zephyr, Cheyenne, a young Native American woman, is swept through the doorway of an interplanetary portal and whisked away from Earth in a dazing blur of motion. She's deposited, alone and half-naked, in a valley between the grassy knolls of the Rhian Mountains and the dreaded Goetic forest, just inside the boundaries of Andreas Territory.

It's there that Lord Darian Andreas, ruler of the mighty Andreas Clan and master of the powerful Andreas Territory, finds her. Although Darian is a just man who exercises kindness and incorporates mercy into his method of rule—which, in the barbaric world of Zandar, are rare qualities for a man—he's also used to getting what he wants, one way or another. And from the moment Darian lays eyes on the dark-skinned beauty, he knows she's meant to be his. If the Gods are willing, he'll make it so...

Bitten By Books

More Than Prophecy is a fantastic read that is really hard to put down once you begin reading. There is more to this story than first meets the eye. The descriptions are excellent giving the reader all the details to the world of Zandar and the people in it. The characters pop out and draw you into their world. Cheyenne is strong willed yet utterly feminine while Darian is your all around man’s man who, through Cheyenne, learns more about the meaning of compassion and mercy. It is thoroughly enjoyable, honest and heartfelt. I sincerely hope that Shannon Leigh will continue on the tales of other people in Zandar.

All Book Reviews

Shannon Leigh’s writing style is descriptive and brings the world of Zandar to life for the reader. The characters are well thought out and colorful. The men, warrior like and to die for, much like the Scot’s of the 18th century of earth. Cheyenne was a well- rounded emotional character with courage and dignity. I really enjoyed reading Darian and Cheyenne’s story. The plot was excellent and unraveled at a slow pace but it kept you glued to the pages to find what’s coming next.

Coffee Times Romance

Ms. Leigh starts with a bang and keeps the thrills coming to culminate with a climatic finish that was completely satisfying. Ms. Leigh is a superb storyteller and the story kept me guessing on how the couple would overcome the obstacles to their relationship. I found myself quickly immersed in the story of the brave and feisty Cheyenne and delectable Darian and cheering for a happy ending for the couple. I hope we will see in future stories from Ms. Leigh. This story is definitely among my favorites and will be one I will look forward to reading again.

Enchanted In Romance 1

More Than Prophecy is the type of book to draw you in and not let you take a break until the end. The characters have an emotional appeal and an intensity that caused me very extreme feelings. I felt Cheyenne’s anger at her suitors’ belief that she was little more than the barer of the child of peace. I saw the fear she experienced when Chris tried to force himself upon her. I sensed the deep confusion she felt over two wonderful men who were in love with her.
Overall, Shannon Leigh has created a remarkable world with deeply enjoyable characters, as well as easily hated ones. More Than Prophecy is high on my "will read again" list.

Enchanted In Romance 2

More Than Prophecy is a wild ride from beginning to end, Cheyenne is a strong, competent woman that conquers her fears and does what needs doing regardless of them. Darian is her perfect match, a strong warrior and a merciful leader that always does what’s best for his people. Shannon Leigh has written an absorbing tale of passion and betrayal, love and hate that draws a reader into a world of fantasy so vivid that it comes alive in your mind. I highly recommend More Than Prophecy, just know this is not a quick read as it’s almost 500 pages long but more than worth your money to experience.

Eternal Night

Through an epic scope, a world is born, filled with complex and fascinating people; heroes who have spots and villains who have moments that hint that perhaps they are not totally lost. Of all the epic fantasies, the one this most reminds me of is the Cheysuli series by Jenifer Roberson in tone. Though the story seems to be complete- more than one character did have potential to star as the hero on their own, so readers may have something to hope for.

Fallen Angel Reviews 1

I was quite wrapped up in this novel of alternate worlds and, in spite of its super-size length, I read it in one day. This is a very enjoyable novel about a modern Native American girl being drawn through a rift in ... time? space? ... and coming to the planet of Zandar to face her destiny. I must say that the author has, even taking into account its length, skillfully written an engrossing novel and I recommend it for fans of futuristic romance.

More Than Prophecy is an exciting and intriguing book. Ms. Leigh has created a world with a rich and dynamic history. This would be a wonderful beginning of a new series based on this world. With well-developed and enjoyable characters, More Than Prophecy moves at a rapid pace. There isn’t a moment where the storyline drags and this reader couldn’t wait to see what happened next. Kudos to Ms. Leigh for this wonderful story!

Heartstrings Reviews

To make a long review short, More Than Prophecy is a tempestuous romance from up-and-coming author, Shannon Leigh, that's fraught with friction and is given an extra dose of curl-your-toes sex appeal with Darian and his fellow barbarians. They may not be politically correct or all-knowing about feminism and equal rights, but they're pretty darn irresistible and willing to learn the finer points of wooing a lady and earning her heartfelt esteem through both word and deed. I foresee great things for Ms. Leigh's writing career, in fact, if this fun, sexy, spirited and slightly campy romance is anything to go by.

Paranormal Romance Reviews

“Fantastic Fantasy”

MORE THAN PROPHECY is a thrilling ride from the very first page right up to the surprising ending! Shannon Leigh has done a wonderful job of bringing her characters to life in this exciting story. The men are all big, bad warriors and the world reminded me of medieval Scotland. The hierarchy is very similar to that time period with Liege- lords and Lords and so on. A time when might was right. Under the prophecy, this is, at heart, a very tender romance.

Sizzling Romance Reviews

I absolutely loved this book. I was glad it was four hundred odd pages. The author created such a believable and realistic world in Zandar, that I almost believed it was a one-dimensional version of Earth.

TCM Reviews

This is a beautiful engaging story that is a wonderful read with gorgeous imagery, and I’m not necessarily talking about the scenery, although it is also descriptive and breathtaking.



The Romance Studio

I enjoyed this romp. It was fun seeing a modern young woman dropped into a world dominated by strong-willed men, more used to solving their problems with fists and swords then words. Pick it up and see what you think.

Writer's Unlimited

Shannon Leigh has written a fantasy that sweeps you away. More Than Prophecy takes you away from everyday life and plops you right in the middle of a land of adventure and desire. Ms Leigh is a wonderful storyteller and has given us another retreat when all we want to do is get away from it all.
