If your nightmares came true, what would you do to save the future?
Hazen Stephenson grew up pampered, and he knows it. But he’s never had it easy. Hazen’s nightmares aren’t merely products of his imagination, and he wrestles daily with guilt, responsibility, and questions of fate. Setting off across the globe, he meets people he’s dreamed about and changes their lives…for better and for worse.
Then he meets Renny Nado, who never dreamed her Creative Writing degree would amount to much. But a people called ‘The Kota’ say her gifts point to an important destiny, and she must convince Hazen of their purpose.
Meanwhile, the world is full of pain, hate, and political upheaval. Should they accept what the Kota say about the future and their place in it? Or should they keep their heads out of the clouds?

- “Readers who love short stories will have a lot to savor in this novel, including the well-thought out and captivating characters, the surprising turns in the plot, and the fascinating setting. The writing is very accessible and it flows with exceptional fluidity. This is one of those stories for readers who are into books that are purpose-driven and that feature a strong conflict with multi-dimensional characters.” — Christian Sia
- “a riveting read, one you’d complete in one sitting, not because it is short, but because it is gripping. As one reads on, one can’t help but think about the current political situation in the US. Although this is a story with powerful dystopian elements, it reflects a lot of contemporary political drama, with the greed and madness and hatred seeping through political minds. One also understands the place of gifts in the economy of life. Our gifts are meant to serve a purpose and it is wonderful to see how Renny Nado gets anxious about hers. Sunshine Somerville has crafted a beautiful story that has many lessons for humanity, a story that will make readers rethink what role they play in life in their time. The prose is beautiful and the plot follows a simple, yet gripping structure. I finished reading this one before I even remembered I started reading. It’s a delightful piece of writing, indeed.” — Romuald Dzemo
- “I am encouraged to give the main series a try.” –Charles Remington
- “For lovers of good dystopian/fantasy novels, The Prophet is for you” — Neil White
- “…fascinating and thought-provoking. I was unfamiliar with Somerville’s The Kota Series before reading this novella, and found, while it was complete in itself, the plot and characters made beginning The Kota series a tempting proposition.” — Jack Magnus
