Can a bard, a sword, a unicorn–and a hopeless prince–save a kingdom?
Fourteen–year–old Prince Perryn is teased for loving books more than swords. But Perryn's books are his best weapons to stop the dragon that is destroying his kingdom–and his one hope of earning his father's respect. When he unearths a prophecy on how to kill the dragon, Perryn sets out to find the three things needed to make it come true–a unicorn, a true bard, and a special sword. But, as everyone knows, the only thing more absurd than pursuing a prophecy is believing any of these legends might still be found. From acclaimed author Hilari Bell, The Prophecy unfolds with wit, wisdom, danger, and discovery, as any unforgettable adventure should!

Hilari Bell recently retired from a career as a librarian to pursue writing full time. Her favorite books are fantasy, science fiction, and mystery. Not surprisingly, these are the kinds of books she writes very well herself, often combining genres when it serves her story. Her growing list of titles includes The Prophecy, The Wizard Test, The Goblin Wood, and A Matter of Profit. Perhaps a starred review of the wizard test in KLIATT describes Hilari's unique talent best: "Politics and intrigue, honor and friendship are Bell's real subjects, and her novels are thought provoking as well as exciting reads." Hilari lives in her hometown of Denver, Colorado.
