What People Think about "Fires of Prophecy"

Don't waste your money on this book, it is just an expensive subplot! This book is one entire Subplot. I wasted $5.95 on a subplot that was entirely about trying to find Miko.

The first book in the series, The Unsuspecting Mage, was awkwardly written in the present tense, but the plot was compelling enough to overlook it for the most part. This book was originally written in present tense and then poorly converted to past tense. Well, once a chapter or so there would be a sentence or even half a sentence that was still in present tense.

This book was extremely difficult to put down, making breaks at work take a little too long.

Faux, car je m'attendait a voir des choses des autres livre que j'ai lu, a voir des héros inspiré de héros déjà existant mais à la sauce de l'auteur, je m'attendait à une variété de quests de type medley qui me ferais revivre de grand classique mais par la plus d'un autre auteur. Mais non, ce n'est pas ce qui arrive dans ce livre. J'ai déjà lu dragonball et je trouvais que sa faisait plus vrai que d'avoir des jeunes de 16 ans qui ont survécu plusieurs années comme gladiateurs (écoutez la série TV spartacus pour comprendre). A la sortie de la ville, James cast un sort de destruction massive qui me donnait espoir que ses connaissances de la fantasy et des jeux de rôle pourrait faire de lui un personnage plus intéressant. Chose qui m'a demander beaucoup de patience car de soupir en soupir j'ai passé au travers du long bout où l'auteur s'est évidement inspiré de Final Fantasy 7, car les héros de promène de ville en ville, meule tout ce qui bouge (he oui des garçon de 16 ans buttent des soldats, des vétéran, des gars avec des épées et même des mages, avec seulement 2 dagues) et passe à la prochaine ville. Oui ils ont un mage qui commence à faire des sorts un peu plus intéressant et qui les aide, mais pour un auteur qui a lu plein de classique, il aurait du faire un guérrier vétéran de ces deux personnages, des guerriers qui aurait pu paterniser James et qui aurait ajouter à l'histoire. Il a inventer un sort qui fait une bombe H comme effet et tout ça pour sauver un jeune de 10 ans qu'il connaissait à peine. En attendant, vous êtes averti, ce livre manque d'imagination, il sonne faux comme ça n'a pas de bon sens et l'histoire est très répétitive (cependant si vous avez aimé final fantasy 7 vous devriez aimer plus que moi).

Coming fresh off the first book and delving into the second, I read through Fires of Prophecy by Brian S. Along the way to find Miko, James meets a whole host of new companions like knife-wielding (maniac in the latter's case) boys Jiron and Tirok, along with their female friends, Delia and Cassie. James doesn't want Jiron and Tinok to kill senselessly, but he himself decides to go nuts with magic sometimes, with no remorse. One thing I would have LOVED Pratt to elaborate on more as a point of growth happens in this novel a lot. Much of the chaos that James causes with his magic comes from him disregarding nature entirely. There are a lot of moving parts in the novel where a lot of things get dropped on their head or shelved until a later point.

I'm not sure why I read this 2nd book in the series, after the terrible first one. Probably because the main character has some powerful magical abilities, and a few people said this book was better than the first. Hopefully the series will get better, since I may continue reading just because I can't find enough books about mages...

(view spoiler) James' seemingly constant feinting however, continues to grate at my sensibilities.

Good read if you like fantasy sagas or if you are a role-playing fanatic. You feel like you are inside a role-playing computer site.

The main issue is that whoever put it into e-book format (I'm assuming it wasn't written that way after reading the first one and having little to no issues) really screwed up a lot.
