About Heirs of Prophecy

  • Paperback: 380 pages
  • Publisher: M & S Publishing, L.L.C. (April 3, 2012)

The Riverton family had been enjoying a simple summer vacation when, through a fluke of nature, they found themselves in a strange 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.

“Rothman’s language and description are precise and well-tuned to an adolescent readership…a fair, heroic fantasy for the school-age demographic.” – Kirkus Reviews

“There is a sweetness and light to this novel that often seems missing in modern fantasy.  I think that a wise reader will recognize that this is something the world needs, and has been waiting for.” – David Farland, New York Times Bestselling Fantasy Author

“This would be a book that I would recommend for elementary as well as young adult readers, and will be a great read aloud for students of all ages.” – Jennifer Oliver, Edgerton Elementary School Librarian

“As an educator with a love for children and adolescent books, I found myself very interested in this book.  The author has a gift for using words that bring stories to life.  There are so very few books that both adults and adolescents can enjoy and relate to.  I’m glad to say this book is one of those few books.” – Barbara Greenwald, Retired NYC Elementary School Teacher

About Michael A. 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 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.
