Lords of Prophecy by Michael A Rothman

The Riverton brothers must rise to the occasion and fulfill the words of the prophecy or Trimoria will fall and many will die...

Mr. Rothman and Goddess Fish Blog Tour sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  The book is available on Amazon now.  This is the third in the series and while you can read this one as a stand alone, I'd recommend getting them all.  There are nuances you won't pick up on within the story without all the background.

Trying to mount a war against demons is no small chore.  There are ogres, elves, dwarves, humans, swamp cats, wolves, and more in the forces against evil.  The problem is that number of demons is overwhelming and almost infinite.  Can the forces that Ryan and Aaron have been training and working with withstand the onslaught?  Can anyone kill the largest and worst demon and his assistant?  

I've grown to care for these characters so I worried a bit about who might live and might die during this epic battle.  The pages turn swiftly when I read work by Mr. Rothman, and the action in the books makes me catch my breath every now and again.  This is the ultimate battle between good and evil and it kept my attention from beginning to end.

Why not find a comfortable chair and settle in for a visit to a new world filled with danger and excitement?  Just don't choke on your choice of drink, OK?

Michael will be awarding a $50 Amazon GC to one randomly drawn commenter during the tour, and a $25 Amazon GC to a randomly chosen host.

Follow the tour and comment; the more you comment, the better your chances of winning. The tour dates can be found here:

Happy reading and I hope you win!

That's the thing with epic battles, the good guys are vulnerable too.

Thank you for the kind review, I'm glad you found it enjoyable.

Regarding storylines with many characters, some must fall victim to an unexpected demise. Think of it as a Darwinian kindness that an author does for the reading audience. It keeps everyone guessing and wondering where that axe will fall next. ;-)

How I came up with the idea for the book? Well, in the engineering world we have a phrase that Einstein first used that stated its "1% inspiration and 99% perspiration" Since I am also an author, the idea for such a book seems largely to come from random inspiration - however the amount of work that it takes to bring about that inspiration to something sensible to read is profound. The idea for such a thing has been bubbling in my head forever. But like most authors, the details don't spill out until you sit down and start writing.

Did I choose the cover myself? Actually, I was lucky enough to work with the artist who put it together. I submitted to him a scene and we talked about the details of what the layout would be. So I did have quite a bit to do with the choices that were made, but I would never take credit for the artistry. That is when I nod to Paul Pederson and his magic fingers. He's an amazing young artist.
