Packed with adventure, plenty of fantasy elements, and an age appropriate romance, readers of all ages will enjoy this new magical journey into a land unlike any other. For the Riverton family, a fun summer vacation to AZ sounded like the perfect retreat from their beautiful home in the Pacific Northwest.

    2. The beautiful family of Rivertons - Dad Jared, Mom Aubrey and sons Ryan and Aaron - had planned to enjoy their summer vacation in Arizona (their father's 'surprise' place to the family). When they were camping in Arizona, by some unexpected accident that none of them understands, they land in a strange land called Trimoria. As soon as the family arrives there, they each seem to have gained some magical powers, which they didn't yet realize. Soon, they were given shelter by the town's Protector, [...]

    3. This book reminded me of The Pendragon Adventures Series, Gregor the Overlander, and the Mother-Earth Series. I just adore MG adventure, fantasy books! Seriously, one of my favourite genres. This book had it all, magic, powers, dwarves, elves, and many more! Oh, I recently watched Lord of the Rings movies and I really felt this had aspects of LotR (more on this later).What I love the most about the book was that it involved the whole family and not just the children (yes! Mother, and father!) I [...]

    5. 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 [...]

    6. I fell in love with the Riverton family and their new found friends of Trimoria. This middle grade book is filled with exciting action, lots of adventure, friendships being forged and even little hints of love. It reminds me of a combination of Harry Potter meets Lord of the Rings. The Riverton's were somehow transferred to Tirmoria without knowing why or how they even got there. They learned that things were much different in their new surroundings and adapted quickly to all the changes happeni [...]

    7. The Riverton family is taking a summer-long vacation. Dad Jared is being very mysterious about their destination, but sons Ryan and Arron are excitedeir mom Aubrey, not so much. But when their camping trip in Arizona goes wrong, they end up in a land that seems to be from another time--no cars, airplanesd they have ogres and gnomes!Luckily the Rivertons are taken in by the kindly Lancaster family, and they soon come to love the simple, hard working life they lead on the family's farm. The Rivert [...]

    8. Heirs of Prophecy is a well developed quest novel for middle grade and young adult readers. Rothman introduces us to the Riverton family with sons Ryan and Aaron. Their father Jared has a love for the simple (rough!) outdoor life. He takes the family to the wilderness of southern Arizona to camp, canoe, fish, and forage. The two boys share their father's fondness for survival skills, which proves useful when through some freak accident the Rivertons suddenly find themselves in a strange and diff [...]

    9. 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 [...]

    10. I picked up Heirs of Prophecy on a whim one day, and two hours later I was done with the book. Let me say, before anything else, that Michael A. Rothman can most definitely tell a story! The Riverton family is one of the sweetest groups of people that I've ever met. Aaron, Ryan and their parents face a lot in this book, but they deal with it as a family. If you're looking for a wholesome read that will still draw in your young reader, this is it!Aaron and Ryan are definitely great protagonists. [...]

    11. Review copy received from the author in exchange for an honest review. Find more reviews at The Reflections of a BookwormWhat worked: I love the premise. Seriously, a new land with ogres, elves and dwarves sounded right up my street after a contemporary binge! I really enjoyed the world building and getting to know all of these intriguing characters with their new way of life. The Rivertons definitely have to take time to adjust to the differences and it was fun to see Rothman weave the story to [...]

    12. The Riverton's are your typical family. Brother's Ryan age fourteen and Aaron 12 are excited but curious about the two month vacation that their dad Jared has planned for them. The one thing they do know is that there cat Silver will be going along with them. When they finally arrive at their destination, in Arizona, their mother Aubrey is less than excited to learn that the first part of their vacation is going to be spent camping and exploring caves. Their vacation quickly shifts when somethin [...]

    13. Originally posted at: aurorareviews/201Heirs of Prophecy is a fun, action-packed book that's appropriate for all ages. Truthfully, it's been a while since I've read a middle grade book, so I wasn't sure it would hold my attention. It did that and more. I completely enjoyed it!It starts off a little slowly with the Riverton family packing for vacation, but once they take their little unscheduled side trip to the land of Trimoria, things certainly pick up! The author's done a fine job of showing u [...]

    14. Heirs of Prophecy by Michael A. Rothman is an imaginative beginning to what I suspect will be a great series. The Riverton family goes on vacation to Arizona, only to find themselves in a new land called Trimoria. Trimoria is a land under the control of the dark wizard, and resembles the Dark Ages. There is no technology or indoor plumbing. The young boys, Aaron and Ryan Riverton soon realize they gained abilities in Trimoria that they did not have before. This makes them a threat for the ruling [...]

    15. Overall, I think Heirs of Prophecy is an enjoyable book that MG readers will love. I think it’s a bit young – simplistic and predictable – for the YA crowd, but it’s still a fun adventure. The descriptions are good, making it easy to visualize while reading.The characters could use more depth – especially the Riverton family. We learn a lot more about the locals in Trimoria and the history thereof. We don’t really know much about the pre-Trimoria Rivertons. The idea of anyone from no [...]

    16. When the Riverton family is suddenly transported to the land of Trimoria, their lives were utterly changed. Not only is the way of living there completely different, but the members of the family gain strange and unusual powers.They must learn quickly to master their powers and the ways of the world they now occupy, because they have set a prophecy into play and will soon be leading an army against an evil, merciless wizard.I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The plot was good, was well pace [...]

    17. Things I Liked: The book has an interesting plot - the family that accidentally ends up in a strange world, complete with magic powers. I love the device of following strange paths to new worlds, like the Chronicles of Narnia or Beyonders, and this is along those same lines. The fantasy world is complex and interesting, if not unique, and has plenty of cool creatures and odd characters - and, of course, an evil wizard. I was especially fascinated at the inclusion of Ryan and Aaron's parents in t [...]

    18. 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 th [...]

    19. I just finished reading Heirs of Prophecy by Michael A. Rothman, and it's a wonderful fantasy adventure. I liked the Rivertons right away and thought their family dynamics seemed realistic. It would certainly be a lot easier being stranded in a strange land with your whole family! The pace of the story is excellent. The author created a magical new world with creatures that I could easily picture and a storyline that I thought about when I wasn’t reading. Whenever magic is involved- anything c [...]

    20. So, my first impression when reading a quick synopsis of this novel was that I’d read this before: normal person gets transported to a magical land where they have superpowers they didn’t know about, blah, blah, blah…When I started reading, however, I realized that I was wrong. The first clue was that it wasn’t just a singular person who was transported, but an entire family, and the characters were forced to face the struggles of this new world together, as a family. Okay, that’s some [...]

    21. This book is one that captures your imagination, and lets you have a vivid view of what is happening to the characters, and what is going on around them and therefore I would give it an actual rating of 4.5. What is it about? The tale is about how the Tiverton family, and their cat, go on holiday. Whilst exploring a cave it collapses on them, and they wake up find that ,somehow, they were saved and transported to unfamiliar territory, a whole new planet actually, and gain exciting powers. From t [...]

    22. I'm always looking for new books as part of my job as manager of children's services at our local library (MoCS=children's librarian without a library degree). So, when I had the chance to review this book--I jumped at it.It had everything kids today are looking for--fantasy, adventure, with just the tiniest smidgin of a thought of romance.Adults reading this book may hear echoes of an old Saturday morning TV show--Land of the Lost-- only there are no dinosaurs in this tale. There are, however, [...]

    23. I loved this book. It's for young kids so it was pretty easy to read. I don't know why I wasn't so into fantasy when I was younger, but I'm glad that these days the young 'uns have so many awesome reading options, including books like the Percy Jackson series and of course this one. I love books that really get people to use their imagination!I enjoyed this book. The world building is marvelous and easy to follow. I also like the fact that the characters are one family experiencing the magic and [...]

    24. This is one interesting book. A family was on vacation when there was a rock slide in the cave they were exploring. They then are transported to a land stuck in the dark ages where there is magic. Unfortunately for them, a dark wizard wants to kill them, as they all got magical powers, including their cat when they came to the new land. Some things seem to repeat themselves,but other than that, I found this as a great read

    25. Adventure fantasy novel about a family that gets transported back into time and into another world. It is fast-paced and intriguing. The main characters are believable and readers can relate to them. This world, Trimoria, has wizards, ogres, dwarfs, and magic. The Riverton family has gained some unusual powers in the transfer and because they set the prophecy into action, they need these powers to fight the bad and restore the good to the land.

    26. This is one of those very rare books that kept me from getting a good night's sleep. The list of books that keep me reading until the end no matter how much I know I need to be sleeping is very short. I picked it up on a lark the other day, as something to pass the time, and could not put it down. The story is captivating from the beginning, and moves well.

    27. The first couple of chapters were hard to get into , but it picked up rather quickly. Now curious to see what will happen in the next one.
