Heirs of Prophecy by Michael A Rothman
They were on vacation and their Dad wasn't telling anyone where they were going, he just said it would be fun. His first stop is to explore a cave. Mom and the kids aren't as enthused as he is, but they all play along. What his Dad hasn't planned was to fall through a portal into another world...
I am participating in a Goddess Fish Blog Tour for this book. M & S Publishing and the author sent me a copy of the book for review (thank you). The book has been published so check with your local bookstore for a copy.
The family finds themselves in a misty woods that resembles nothing they are familiar with. The animals and fruits and unrecognizable. They don't know if they are in friendly or enemy lands. And, for some reason, Ryan's hands now flash a bit of electricity. More changes are coming...
This is story written for young adults and has everything you could imagine in a good fantasy story in it. A wicked wizard, an evil queen, elves, dwarves, ogres, and even more odd characters permeate this story. The family is found by the Protector of the region and he takes them home with them. He knows he must hide them and not let their ignorance of the present culture show they don't belong. Anyone who doesn't belong dies. Even some of the ones that do belong die.
This is a world full of conflicts, strange powers, and a prophecy that somehow seems to be coming together. The story is fast paced, exciting and all the characters are facing challenges. The family has powers they didn't know existed and they are part of the prophecy.
This is Book 1 in the series and I will be reviewing Book 2 later this year. I enjoyed this read and look forward to next installment in the story. This book could be a standalone read if you don't want to continue the series.
Why not settle in a comfortable chair and fall through the portal with this family? It's an adventure you won't forget...
