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

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.

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.

A Review of Prophecy of the Flame by Lynn Hardy

Ms. Hardy takes a nice concept -- physical role playing devotees are transported to a magical realm where their fantasy powers and attributes become reality - and sprinkles it with humor, pathos, and some really strange moments.

Reba and her husband Kyle, along with several members of their role-playing unit attend a Fantasy Conference and find themselves magically transported to a land called Cuthbaren. While they adjust to the surroundings, they're tasked with curing Prince Alexandros, who's been mortally wounded. Using their new-found powers the group successfully heals the prince and enjoy the comforts of his kingdom. The action picks up when they're asked to close a portal a wicked sorcerer opened - one leading to a realm filled with demonic creatures.

All in all, this is a good read where the main characters are fully realized and the tension is prevalent throughout. I thought the romance featured in the book was iffy, but the characters mentality seemed to fit the situations. Penciled professional looking drawings are scattered through the novel, depicting scenes meant to insert you into the book.

I gave it 4-Stars because it is a little rough around the edges, but nothing to interrupt the pleasure you'll have reading it.

I didn’t read this book right away because judging from the first sentences, it depicts gaming ( online games only physically), which means I have to deal with sci-fi and much worst gaming. But to my regret, after a month when I continued reading, I find this as exciting as a roller coater ride.:)

Prophecy of the Flame by Lynn Hardy is about:

In a blinding flash of light, five nondescript strangers are yanked from this world and thrust into a land of sorcery as they are granted the looks and abilities of the people they were playing. This band of wannabe heroes soon discovers that having the powers they have always dreamed of, does not make life a dream come true. The Crusaders of the Light struggle to form a cohesive band as they blend twentieth century technology with the supernatural powers of this new world, fighting to liberate the kingdom of Cuthburan from the evil horde threatening humanity. Battle is also waged within Reba, an ordinary housewife who has become the most powerful mage on the planet, as she struggles to remain true to her wedding vows. Drawn against her will to the arms of Prince Alexandros, Reba must choose marriage to a handsome prince in a magical world or returning to the husband she left behind.

The book kinda reminds me of Harry Potter, only with demons and princes and princesses. The Archmage is present, a druid elf, a dwarf, a master healer and a prince charming.

I fell in love instantly with the story, I don’t know why, some magic-themed books are not just striking, but this one had me at my heels.:)

I enjoyed reading each chapters, and am always eager to read on and on, the suspense keeps me going and the actions and spells just add spice to it. My appreciation for the wonderful rhymes too.
