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.
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 a burning curiosity about the world and all 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.
Michael A. Rothman is back with the next story in the Riverton adventures! Like book 1, this is an epic story and it keeps the readers (young and old alike!) fully engrossed until the end. Each page turn brought new excitement, new twists, and I didn’t know what to expect! These characters and the fantasy world are wonderfully created and blend perfectly together.
The Riverton brothers, Ryan and Aaron, are picking up right where book 1 left off. Wizards and demons, and all the epic characters that make up a fascinatingly gripping fantasy fiction novel. Ryan and Aaron are finally coming to terms with their powers, learning just what to do and when. The prophecies are revealing themselves, and things are taking on intriguing in Trimoria. Ryan and Aaron come up against some amazing new characters…..and their battles are just as exciting as before! But, there are twists added to the story that will knock you off your seat!
Trimoria is definitely a fantasy world that I could find myself comfortably living in. It’s full of adventure and mystery, and the Riverton’s life before it doesn’t compare to what it is now! I truly enjoyed each character (both evil and good!). They were complex and vivid. Watching Ryan and Aaron learning more about themselves and the prophecies was definitely edge-of-your-seat material!
As with book 1, this is definitely 4 Book worthy. It’s adventurous, magical, gripping children’s fiction. Whether you’re 8 or 88 this book will take you on a spin that will set you down in unexpected places and leave you a fan for life! My one suggestion is that if you haven’t read book 1, you better. It’s best to come to know the Riverton’s and Trimoria before diving into this fast-paced read. It will help you understand the characters and their choices better. Another home run, Mr. Rothman! Bring on book 3!!!
