Editorial Reviews

Review

"A  strikingly accomplished young writer with a true flare for storytelling and character development. You dive into this book and hope it will never end." 
  ~ Kate Delano-Condax Decker


"I caught the first one back when it was being offered for free for a short time period. I loved it so much I bought the second one, and am patiently awaiting the time another book is published in the series. Ok, not really so patiently, but what choice do I have? haha. To be honest I had never even heard of Lynn Hardy before I found that free book, but I would now consider her to be on my list of favorites." 
  ~ Amazon Reviewer
 
"I read the first book on my kindle yesterday. (Yes, the whole book.)... I just now bought Book Two and Book 2.5. That is how addicting I find Prophecy of the Flame." 
  ~ Elizabeth Polley

From the Author

I want to thank you for taking time to read Prophecy of the Flame. Your time is valuable and I feel privileged that you have chosen my book to read.

I have been told that it is inconsiderate to respond to reviews, so I will say it here:

My heart is touched beyond words each time you take even more time to compose a review for any of my books. I read each review and thoughtfully consider your words.

More About the Author

Led by a series of dreams and encouraged by friends, Lynn Hardy began the journey to become an author. She stored her work in a computer file labeled "second job." Writing began as a passion she could not contain and has become much more than she ever expected.

In the Fall of 2010 Prophecy of the Flame - Book One reached #1 on Amazon kindle, shortly after Book Two in the series released. In the spring of 2011, Lynn released the Full Cast unabridged audio book of Book One. Now both fans and newcomers can hear the book come to life as every character jumps of the page with their own unique voice.


The road has been longer and more complicated than she would have ever guessed--not always smooth, but filled with wonderful surprises. Like most stories, Lynn is sure that her journey has only just begun.

Format: Paperback
The story focuses on a group taking part in a roll playing activity and are transported to another dimension. A wizard in that dimension called for them to help protect his kingdom from the demons who are attacking. It turns out that there is a prophecy that was tailor made for the female Mage named Reba. Reba and her fellow mages have to learn quickly how to survive in a world unlike their own. It gives the reader a look into how people would act if they knew they would never see the people around them again. Throughout the story you find out that the demons were brought from another world as well be a Wizard who wants to control the entire planet.

This is the first book that I have read that deals with roll playing. It was written in the first person and was done well. It read at a nice pace and you found yourself sucked in to the story. I liked the fact that it focused on the honor of the characters and that they looked at the consequences of their actions. The author tried to make this a story that you came away from learning something as well as enjoying the story. I did find Reba doing most of the work was a little unrealistic. I would expect her partners to add more to what was being done.

I found myself staying up till 2am in the morning on a work night to finish the book. I would recommend it to anyone that likes fantasy and action. If you are new to this genre it does a good job explaining the rules of magic and war. A great introduction into the world of fantasy. I am looking forward to the second installment in the book to see where the characters end up.

It is hard to rate this book. I really liked the idea behind the story. Five strangers bond together with all new powers to save a world in trouble. People becoming more than they think they are just to aid those in need. Who wouldn't like those ideals. There were a couple of times while reading this book, I was like WHAT?!?!! But I kept on reading ignoring the WTF moments in loo of hanging on until the end. All in all the story was good. After reading a book, do you ever get the feeling like.. ummmm.. yeah that is how I felt after reading all of this book.

Points that upset me.

1) She goes on and on about how everyone is so gorgeous in this new world. Until she meets a tailor's daughter who is full figured, and than she feels at ease because not everyone is beautiful. WTF!!! Sooo, full figured girls can not be pretty. Put down your cosmo and look at real women. Not everyone is a size 0, and not everyone that is a size 0 is beautiful. Beautiful women come in all sizes. I know I should let it go, but it bothered me.

2) She has an African-American nerd with her who is an architect and a gamer, yet every sentence out of his mouth is like.. lil mamma. I gonna get my eat on. or dat okay wit u. Say what?!?! Not a single sentence spoken by this educated nerd is in correct vernacular. NOT ONE!!! Little secret, not all black people talk like the ones on jerry springer...and just so you know.. there are plenty of white people who talk like that to.

+++spoiler+++

3) She goes on and on about how much her marriage means to her. Then, she drops the bomb about how they are having problems because of his porn addiction, even after therapy. Then, she sleeps all though only sleeps with a man she is attracted to.

2.5 stars. I wanted to like this book. The premise - of several role players being magically transported into a world where they took on those roles and their magical abilities - was wonderful. It's a creative, imaginative, fun idea. The illustrations were really, really cool. In the hands of a masterful storyteller, the unremarkable (or too perfect) characters, wandering subplots, and forced dialogue/situations might have had their edges smoothed away. I read the third revision of this story, and the rough edges were still very, very apparent.

First, the characters were difficult to connect with. The Archmage Reba managed to have epiphany after epiphany about how to save everyone and the world. She was the only person in the world who could figure these things out and weave a magic spell to make everything right again. This grew old after, oh, the second time it happened. She was also very inconsistent, like when she was preaching about how - in our world - married couples don't have relations outside the marital bed. And then she defends sleeping with a guy and claims it's ok, because nothing really happened. And what on earth is this with her obsession with another man (not her husband) who treats her like crap? She obsesses over a prince, discusses her sex life with her servant, preaches Christianity and manages to lose complete focus as a character during the portion of the book where she should be developing and overcoming her issues. She's made out to be too powerful (and almost too perfect) at the beginning, and that manages to carry through the entire book, despite the odd distractions about her sex life and attraction to a smarmy prince. Oh, and making her boobs bigger.
