So we have another review stop this week. Today we have Lords of Prophecy, the final book in the middle grade fantasy trilogy The Prophecies by author Michael A. Rothman. I reviewed the first two books last year and they were really fun reads. I’m so glad to read the final book in the series. Check out my quick review below and enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card! Woot.
Lords of Prophecy (The Prophecies #3)
The Riverton brothers have completed their training, and despite their own personal skills, they worry about the forces arrayed against them. Knowing the barrier that’s kept the people of Trimoria safe for over five centuries is weakening, the brothers ready their ragtag army of humans, dwarves, and elves for battle.
In the meantime, on the other side of the ancient barrier, a growing army of demons have readied themselves for the final battle against the people of Trimoria.
As the barrier weakens, Ryan is struck by bouts of debilitating madness. As the barrier crumbles, so does the hope of Trimoria’s citizens. — Goodreads
I mentioned in my review of the second book, Tools of Prophecy, that it was all about preparation for that big battle between good and evil. Well, in Lords of Prophecy, the big battle finally went down. Of course, there were still a lot of preparation before that and many more twists and details were revealed. There were new characters who came into the picture and some old characters turned out to be more than who and what we knew them to be. There were so many things going on in this book and sometimes it became a little confusing, but it was all tied together towards the end. This was another enjoyable and exciting read and a fitting end to a fun fantasy trilogy.
Note: I received a review copy of this book as part of my participation in the tour. All opinions and views expressed here are my own.
About the Author
I’ve been writing throughout my career as an engineer, however my writing had been relegated to technical books and technical magazine articles. Heck, you might even find a couple of those musty tomes still for sale if you look hard enough.
With my foray into epic fantasy, I’ve shed the shackles of technical writing and created novels that I hope will be attractive to a much wider audience.
I’ve always admired truly epic tales. You know the ones I mean. The book you crack open, wander through and utterly get immersed in. The story takes you on twists and turns you never expected, run into dead-ends that make you wheel your arms backward to prevent you from falling into an endless abyss. By the time you reach what you think is the end, you’ve read hundreds of pages and realize the end is really only the beginning of the story.
You close the book and wonder out loud. “Do I have the next book? Is it out yet?”
My goal when I started writing the first book (HEIRS OF PROPHECY) that involved the Riverton family was to make a story that would allow a younger audience access to such a tale. Since then, a second book (TOOLS OF PROPHECY) was released, and now I introduce the third book in the series with LORDS OF PROPHECY.
As to my other writing activities, I’ve completed another as of yet unreleased novel in the Prophecies series, and they are scheduled to be released as soon as – well, as soon as the paperwork on them is complete, and the lawyers nod their heads up and down.
I hope you enjoy the novel.
