Blog Tour: Lord of Prophecy - Michael A. Rothman

Short description

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.

My opinion

Ryan and Aaron who were just boys at the beginning of the first book have grown up. It’s been five years since they left Arizona and entered Trimoria by accident. I really like how you could see them grow throughout the books. In this book they are preparing for the huge battle between good and evil. I mean there is no in-between, you’re either a hero or you are a villain. And when it finally came I couldn’t put the book down. There were  new characters introduced, but there were also characters from the previous books. And I loved that after three books there was still a lot that we could learn from them. As in all the previous books, the book was a mixture of fantasy, action and romance. That’s what I loved about it, because you never get bored of the books. There is always something else that will turn you upside down. I also loved the setting of the book, the author made it easy to envision it and the map in front of the book definitely helped.

The book can be read as a stand-alone, but it’s recommended to start with book one. That way you can see the characters develop throughout the series. And even if the book is categorized as a middle grade book I would recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy books. This series was just amazing.

About the author

I am an Army brat and the first person in my family to be born in the United States. This heavily influenced my youth by instilling a love of reading and burning curiosity about the world and all of the things within it. As an adult, my love of travel allowed me to explore many unimaginable locations. I participated in many adventures and documented them in what will be a series of books.

Some might put these books in the Fantasy genre, and I never had issues with this label. After all, the adventures were, without any doubt in my mind, fantastic. I simply quibble with the label of "Fiction" that some might put on these tales. These tales should be viewed as historical records, more along the lines of a documentary.
I've learned one thing over the years. Magic is real. Keep exploring, and you too will find your magic.
