-> Three Stones, three young girls. \\
One will discover the Gift. \\
One will recognize the King. \\
One will convince the two others to die. \\
Of three Stones only one fate will remain.

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.

!!This work provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Jade can kick some ass with a sword.
* ActionSurvivor: Jade, Opal, and Amber
* AllJustADream: OrWasItADream It's not very clear.
* BattleInterruptingShout: Opal and Adrien end a battle this way.
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: There's an especially {{Anvilicious}} chapter on this concept. The three main characters are described as exceptionally beautiful (even [[CreepyChild Opal]]), both on the inside and on the outside. But this is somewhat jarring, considering Jade's [[RoyalBrat brattish]] tendencies.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: Drives the whole plot.
* BigBadassBirdOfPrey
* BigGood: [[spoiler: Elyador]] becomes this.
* BirthmarkOfDestiny: [[spoiler: Joa]] has one.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler: Janelle]], who also happens to be TheCorrupter
* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The main conflict is basically Good vs. Evil, with not an {{antihero}} (or {{antivillain}}) in sight (with the sole exception of the Ghibduls [[spoiler: and Elyador]]).
* BlondeBrunetteRedhead: Opal, Jade, and Amber respectively play this trope straight. However, the brunette (Jade) has the personality of the FieryRedhead, the redhead (Amber) might as well have HairOfGoldHeartOfGold based on her role and personality, and the blonde (Opal) is TheStoic.

* EmotionlessGirl: Opal at first.

* ThirdLineSomeWaiting: Between Joa, the three girls, and the Nameless One
