Overview

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.

Through a fluke of nature, the Riverton Family is transported to the strange new world of Trimoria, where two young brothers gain unusual powers. An ancient prophecy foretells that they must lead armies of men, dwarves, and elves against a demon horde. One thing stands in their way: the evil wizard Azazel, whose brutal warriors are sworn to seek and destroy them. (rear cover synopsis). This excerpt from the back of the book doesn’t do enough justice to describe the story of the Riverton’s and how Ryan and Aaron discover their unusual gifts talents (magical powers). They have to learn how to grow both of the talents that they have while keeping away from Azazel’s private army looking for strangers. Throll, who is the ranger and protector of Aubgherle discovers the Riverton family just coming out of the mists and decides to take them in seeing how they are unfamiliar with the territory and how out of place they seem. Little does Throll know that he has just discovered the prophecy of the younger brothers without even knowing who they are. Together with his wife Gwen, and daughter Sloan, the Lancaster family soon befriends the Riverton’s to stay with them while they sort out a good place to hide them. Jarod, the father soon becomes the towns blacksmith with help from Throll. Will the prophecy come about? And what of this Ogre who cannot eat meat have to do with the coming of the prophecy? Read the Heirs of Prophecy by Michael A. Rothman to be whirled away form your troubles into a land of magic and mystery! I received Heirs of Prophecy compliments of TLC Book Tours for my honest review. This the first book in this series, with the second book slated to be on the shelves in July. I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars!! A great read with an even better cast of characters!! I loved reading this book and would recommend to all who love mystery, fiction and Christian Fiction. The First Protector has several direct connections with our lord Jesus Christ and how he comes back for his people. Thank you so much for this book to read and review!! If you have a young adult or middle schooler who loves action adventure stories, then I know you will absolutely LOVE this one!

A fun read for the whole family, Heirs of Prophecy by Michael A. Rothman will open up the imagination of young and old(er) alike! Think Journey to the Centre of the Universe meets World of Warcraft (kinda sorta). Oh ya, I said that. The story follows the Riverton family as they embark on a family vacation and find themselves somehow transported to another world, called Trimoria. It is here that they learn that they are all part of a vital part to the Prophecy of the First Protector that will help them fight the evil and the demon horde which are fast approaching. As an adult, I found the book to be very entertaining although there were parts that I had trouble grasping. For example, the Riverton family were pretty quick to accept that they were no longer going home. The knowledge of having magical abilities seemed to almost not phase them, and the need to now live like back in the pioneer days was completely fine and dandy…but I guess “do as the Romans do”! There are others, but to bring them up may cause some spoilery issues. Though when seen through the eyes of a younger generation, these points may not even trigger so much as a blip on their radars. The cast of characters are loveable and have personalities all of their own! I’m not only talking about the Riverton family themselves (Brothers Ryan and Aaron, father – Jared, and mother – Aubrey) … I’m talking about all the other characters that get introduced into this novel! There’s Throll, the protector of Aubgherle who, with the help of his family, aids the Rivertons in finding a place and home in this new land, an ogre (YES OGRE!) named Ohaobbok who I just absolutely adored! We’ve got elves and dwarves, and let’s not forget the evil sorcerer himself, Azazal. Just how evil is Azazel? Well, let’s see. He took it upon himself to rid the world of any other wizards/sorcerers so that he would be the only one. He gave the orders to kill children who are potential wizards, as well as anyone who gets in the way. Of course he would have some other lackeys do the dirty work for him, but when push comes to shove, he would be more than happy to deliver the killing blow. The world created by author, Michael A. Rothman is one that is completely magical. The interactions that we see between the characters are delightful and some parts are very endearing. True to any YA read, we do encounter the topic of bullying all thanks to Slug (aka Sling) and his crew of thugs, Dominic and Kendrick. Just how much of a bully are these boys? You’ll have to read the book to find out, but rest assured that someone from this crew plays a big part in how things go down! An adventure like no other, Heirs of Prophecy is a read that will take you on a trip you won’t soon forget.

First I would like to Thank AToMR Tours for allowing me to read and review this book for the blog tour. I have to say I am a HUGE fan of middle school books. Anything to get my sons attention gets my attention. We both read this together and he really enjoyed it as much as I did. This story is about the Riverton Family who decides to take a summer vacation with the family. Only on their way there they are detoured to another place actually another land named Trimoria. Trimoria is beautiful and the brothers soon realize they have powers in this world they do not have at home. Their parents explain to them that it is their destiny to help the people of Trimoria. The only thing is in Trimoria the boys will meet an evil wizarrd who wants their powers. The boys will have to fight him and his evil minions to save Trimoria. As the boys meet a town and fight him off they soon realize the wizards minions want to capture them to bring them back to the wizard so he can steal their powers. What will The Riverton Boys do? Will they be able to fight off the evil wizarrd? Will they ever get back home? I loved this book because it was clean and family oriented and full of action. Right from the very first page there is action and it leads through out the book. This is a must read for anyone who wants to enjoy a fun filled adventure full of wizards, ogres, and more!
