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.

Author Michael A. Rothman

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.

TLC Book ToursMy Review:

Michael A. Rothman is a fantastic author! He drew me into the story instantly and get me hooked on the plot line until the last page. When I reached that final page, I was hesitant to put the book down…I want more! I am amazed at the talent this author has and the way he writes a story that is meant for middle grade youth readers but can make it so appealing that the parents can enjoy it just as much!

I don’t typically read fantasy books of this kind. I do read middle grade and young adult books from time to time, but the fantasy ones don’t float my boat, so to speak. But, the creation of this novel, the first in the Prophecies series, really stood out to me and I know that it will be a hit with my 4th grader.

The Riverton family is like your average family. Mom, dad, two boys, all gathered up and on a family camp out, enjoying the great outdoors. Once there, they all set about doing the things that you enjoy in a camping trip but then something happens. The Riverton family is mysteriously among a new place called Trimoria. Ryan and Aaron, the Riverton brothers, have new secrets….they have magic powers. Powers that can be useful in surviving. While they are adjusting to their new life in this new world, they find out about themselves. They have embarked on a truly magical journey of living and prophecies are revealed for the Rivertons. With the help of Throll the family adjusts to their surroundings and the adventure begins!

I am excited to pass this story on to my 4th grader. I know that the adventure filled story will be a hit with him and I am looking forward to reading the second book in this series! Rothman has a true talent for knowing just what the young readers will like and captivates them with a 4 Book worthy novelization of fantasy and family. Highly recommended! Well done, Mr. Rothman!
