We have the express pleasure of being part of the review blog tour for author Michael Rothman’s Lords of Prophecy series. We were given copies of ALL THREE books to read and review. And since these books fall within the Middle Grade age category, all reviews were written by our resident featured reviewer, thirteen-year-old, Kaylee!
The Riverton family had been enjoying a simple summer vacation when, through a fluke of nature, they found themselves in a strange new land.
The Riverton brothers quickly realize that in this world, they have gained unusual powers. Powers that their parents fear will attract the attention of Azazel himself – the merciless wizard who brutally controls this world.
The two brothers soon learn that an ancient prophecy has finally been initiated by their arrival in Trimoria. As the heirs of this prophecy, they are destined to lead the armies of men, dwarves, elves, and even a misfit ogre against the prophesied demon horde.
Only one thing stands in their way.
The evil wizard who has learned of their presence, and has sent assassins to wipe them from existence.
The Riverton family is on their yearly family vacation when disaster strikes. They get stuck under a cave-in and found themselves in a strange world. Ryan,Aaron,Jared, and Aubrey each develop strange powers. They also find out that they are part of a prophecy that will shape the future of Trimoria. They also meet Throll, one of the rangers. The Rivertons must defeat Azuzel, the evil wizard and save the land.
This book was amazing, and I loved the storyline. There was plenty of twists and turns and adventure. A great book for those who love action books.
Tools of Prophecy (Book #2)
The TOOLS OF PROPHECY is the second volume in an epic saga which describes a prophecy that has placed the Riverton brothers in the lead roles of a struggle to save their world from being overrun by unspeakable horrors. This destiny requires that they face off with the demons that nearly destroyed their world over five centuries ago.
In the first book, the population of wizards had been practically eradicated by the former tyrant. The Rivertons are now charged with creating an Academy of Magic, recruiting qualified students, and furthering their own training with secrets that have long been held by the reclusive elves.
Despite their youth, a mysterious spirit has engaged them in an epic struggle to gain mastery of their newfound skills, help raise and train two armies, and stay alive long enough for their final showdown with destiny.
The only things that stand in their way are the assassins hired to destroy them and the Demon Lord’s minion who holds a personal grudge and intends to witness the young boys’ deaths..
The story continues with all the Rivertons powers growing stronger and new people’s power developing. The mystic orbs are begging to become more important if not more dangerous. The war is approaching and everyone is preparing. But will it be enough?
This was an awesome way to continue the series and I highly recommend it. Plenty of interesting and gripping parts. I couldn’t put it down.
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.
The war is on! The prophecy is beginning and everyone is playing their part. Even the dragons are part of the fighting. The elves, dwarves, and humans are all working together to keep back the army of demons. Who will win? Will the good prevail or will the demons overrun the good land of Trimoria?
This was a fantastic ending to the series! A very awesome climax and a happy ending. If you love being stuck on until the end then this series is for you! Lots of right-up-to-the-end action and exciting events. Hold on its a bumpy ride!
We give them…
