Tools of Prophecy
by Michael A. Rothman

The 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.

What is the perfect day for you and what would you do? And Why?

I would think that one of the most perfect days for me is spending time with the wife and kids without the intrusions of the world, nor the quixotic nature of moods or hormones or other extraneous things that influence how we act. You can picture it, can’t you?

Imagine the day starts off with us going to Disney World, and by some miracle, there is practically nobody there. All the lines are gone, we have no waiting for anything, and we fly through the park at breakneck speed enjoying ourselves thoroughly. Note – I am ignoring the aching feet or the distances between rides and parks.

Or imagine we wanted to visit a foreign land, and instead of the heinous 16 hour flights to Brisbane, we step into a teleporting device and with a snap of a finger and a few sparks, we step out into the land of Koalas and cockatoos. Note – I am ignoring its also the land of the most venomous creatures around, has some food of a questionable nature (e.g. vegemite), and the water swirls in the wrong direction (look up the Coriolis effect).

Maybe we wanted to go fishing, and we chartered a boat, and anything we set our minds for, we managed to catch, whether that was Lingcod, Red Snapper, Halibut, etc. I will knowingly ignore the likelihood of motion sickness for some, or that the activity is called fishing, and certainly not considered, “catching”.

So what would the perfect day be and what would we do?

Taking my family, so we could go to a Disney park in Brisbane (doesn’t exist), and go fishing in their blue lagoon for the random fish that they have in there. Okay, maybe I am cheating and instead I’ll say that a carefree jaunt to Disney World would be great with my family if the crowds were extremely limited.

Thank you, Michael. Great post and I love your idea of your perfect day. 

About Michael Rothman - 
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 of the 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, the first of which you have just read. 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.

WHOOT! Time for the Giveaway! Michael has so graciously offered USA/Canada readers a chance to win a KINDLE skinned in gorgeous Heirs of Prophecy cover art (seen below).

  1. This looks good. What ages do you think this would be appropriate for? I'm thinking my middle-grade son might find it interesting.

  2. These tales sounds enchanting and the authors idea of a perfect day sounds nice. Mine is simplistic..endless coffee, family near by, perfect weather and a stack of books!

  3. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! :D

  4. This book looks like it would be a fun read.

  5. I regularly give talks to kids in 4th grade or higher. Oddly enough, some of the most enthusiastic fans seem to be in the 6th-8th grade range and the parents of children in a much wider range. Many of the parents actually do what started me down the path of why I wrote this book and the rest to begin with - they read it to their younger children as bed time stories. That is in fact what I was doing with my own kids before I sat down and typed it all up and started the whole submitting to publishers process.

  6. Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway!


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read my post, I really appreciate it. :) Feel free to leave a comment below, I love reading them and I always try to visit everyone back. *MUAH*
