The Tucson Prophecy (The Prequel to the Paranormal Gift Series) by C.L. Wells is a superb paranormal novella about an unsuspecting man fulfilling a mysterious prophecy. Jimmy is an enforcer for the mob in Chicago. His half-sister Sarah lives in Tucson and is very ill. Sarah needs a heart transplant or she will die in the very near future. Jimmy flies to Tucson to spend time with her while she waits to receive a heart. Her chances of finding a match for her heart are slim, and they both are preparing for the worst. Leaving his sister in the hospital, Jimmy goes out for Chinese food. After his meal, he finds a cryptic message in his fortune cookie stating that if he prevents a small girl from coming to harm, Sarah will live. The note is perplexing and distressing; it doesn't say who Jimmy needs to rescue and, being an enforcer for the mob, the idea of protecting people is foreign to him. He leaves the restaurant, thinking the arcane message might be a hoax. When he buys a pack of gum, and another message appears on the wrapper, he considers taking it a little more seriously. Who is sending him these messages and how are they accomplishing it? How can they help Sarah? Jimmy resolves to take the chance and follow through. Will he succeed and will both girls survive?
The Tucson Prophecy (The Prequel to the Paranormal Gift Series) by C.L. Wells is a fantastic science-fiction paranormal book. The reader gets a glimpse into the mind of a criminal as well as the arcane world. Jimmy's character is profound and complex. For a criminal member of a mob, he is a kind and fascinating person. The Seer and the Keeper are enigmatic and played a small part in this story. They start the events moving and then let the characters perfect the outcome. Since this is a prequel, I assume that we will know more about them in the following books. I enjoyed reading the opening for this series and am looking forward to reading the rest. For those who appreciate paranormal books with the addition of psychic enigmas, I recommend reading this interesting and well-written novella.
