* MeaningfulName: [[spoiler: Jade, Amber, and Opal's upbringing's and personalities seem to reflect on the history, composition, and folklore of the stones for which they're named:
** Jade has been noted to be valued in many cultures throughout history and was (and to this day still is) quite expensive, and people once believed that wearing jade would increase their bodily strength and longevity. The character Jade was raised by a wealthy family and more than capable of defending herself with swordplay.
** Amber is not technically a stone, but rather fossilized tree resin that has been attributed to love, healing and protection. The character Amber grew up on a farm so she loves being outside and she's the kindest of the three girls.
** Opals are reputed for being fragile and not rated very high on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, and during medieval times it was believed that wearing opal jewelry would keep naturally blonde hair from darkening. The character Opal is emotionally fragile and she's also naturally blonde.

* FreudianTrio: Played with. Amber is clearly TheMcCoy and Opal is a distinct [[TheSpock Spock]]. Jade, however, is not a typical [[TheKirk Kirk]]. She follows her Id (like a McCoy) but is hardly idealistic or compassionate. Moreover, she is always the last one to balance out conflict among the three, a traditional Kirk role, which Opal usually takes.

French teen Flavia Bujor wrote the novel over 6 months while she was 13 years old, and it kinda shows. Like ''[[Literature/InheritanceCycle Eragon]]'', ''The Prophecy of the Stones'' was a bestseller in many countries but had mixed reviews, with critics suspecting that the novel's success was due more to the author's age than its quality.

In Paris, a 14-year-old girl named Joa is succumbing to illness in a hospital. She is kept alive only by a "[[DyingDream dream]]" of a fantasy world, where [[RuleOfThree three girls]]--Jade, Opal, and Amber--are chosen by a prophecy to restore goodness to the world. The girls have almost nothing in common. Jade is the spoiled daughter of a Duke; Opal is a quiet, [[EmotionlessGirl seemingly emotionless]] strange girl; Amber is an impoverished but kindhearted peasant. Strangers at first and forced to go on a quest together because of the prophecy, they ultimately become {{true companions}} after their [[FireForgedFriends shared ordeals]].

Each of them is given a precious stone corresponding to their names and they attempt to unravel the meaning behind the stones and the prophecy. Their quest leads them to participate in a [[LaResistance rebel]][[TheRevolutionWillNotBeVilified lion]] against the evil Council of Twelve, travel through the [[MagicLand pristine, magical realm]] of Fairy Tale, and visit the AnthropomorphicPersonification of Death. They discover from an oracle that they must defeat the Council of Twelve for good in order to fulfill the prophecy and free the land. In order to do this, they must find "TheChosenOne" who will lead the Army of Light in the final battle.
