Friends, I’d like to give a huge, warm welcome to fellow author, Michael A. Rothman! I’m so glad he’s here today!
Michael has written an fantasy called Lords of Prophecy. This is the third book of his epic series. As I began this book, I was reminded a bit of The Hobbit. Michael has provided maps of the area, which significantly help to get a feel of place for the story.
And one can’t help but be drawn in when the first line of the book is “I’m a murderer.” The tone is set. There’s going to be action in this story–and a lot of it! Rothman doesn’t disappoint. Yet he does manage to interwine romance throughout the book.
Female readers will identify with Arabelle who is the strong female protagonist. She’s a bit surprising at times, but is a character who will resonate with readers.
I couldn’t help but enjoy the ending. I don’t want to be a spoiler, so I won’t give details. Suffice it to say that you leave the book satisfied, content, while still wanting more–which in my opinion is the best way to end a book.
As you know, I teach high school. I received a copy of Lords of Prophecy to read. So, now I get a double benefit: A fun romp of a read and a new book for my classroom library. I already have quite a few students in mind who will love Rothman’s book!
Here’s a blurb about Michael’s book:
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.

So, please take a minute to comment below! (I’d love for you to get the prize!)
I’ve been writing throughout my career as an engineer, however my writing had been relegated to technical books and technical magazine articles. Heck, you might even find a couple of those musty tomes still for sale if you look hard enough.
With my foray into epic fantasy, I’ve shed the shackles of technical writing and created novels that I hope will be attractive to a much wider audience.
I’ve always admired truly epic tales. You know the ones I mean. The book you crack open, wander through and utterly get immersed in. The story takes you on twists and turns you never expected, run into dead-ends that make you wheel your arms backward to prevent you from falling into an endless abyss. By the time you reach what you think is the end, you’ve read hundreds of pages and realize the end is really only the beginning of the story.
You close the book and wonder out loud. “Do I have the next book? Is it out yet?”
My goal when I started writing the first book (HEIRS OF PROPHECY) that involved the Riverton family was to make a story that would allow a younger audience access to such a tale. Since then, a second book (TOOLS OF PROPHECY) was released, and now I introduce the third book in the series with LORDS OF PROPHECY.
As to my other writing activities, I’ve completed another as of yet unreleased novel in the Prophecies series, and they are scheduled to be released as soon as – well, as soon as the paperwork on them is complete, and the lawyers nod their heads up and down.
I hope you enjoy the novel.
