Prophecy: It’s turned into a romance novel

fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviewsbook review Elizabeth Haydon Prophecy The Symphony of AgesProphecy by Elizabeth Haydon

I enjoyed the first book, Rhapsody, and looked forward to this one, but I barely got through it.
Maybe its because I’m a guy, but when whole chapters are spent on romantic interludes, or the heroine having a good cry, I’m sorry but I just can’t hang in there.

This book started out as promising as Rhapsody, then it turned into a therapy session/romance novel. By the time I finished this book I had the same nauseous feeling I get when my wife’s got the TV remote and she’s watching the Lifetime network. I don’t mean to sound like a male chauvinist, but I’m sure many women feel the same way about a football game.

GREG HERSOM’S (on FanLit's staff January 2008 -- September 2012) addiction began with his first Superboy comic at age four. He moved on to the hard-stuff in his early teens after acquiring all of Burroughs’s Tarzan books and the controversial L. Sprague de Camp & Carter edited Conan series. His favorite all time author is Robert E. Howard. Greg also admits that he’s a sucker for a well-illustrated cover — the likes of a Frazetta or a Royo. Greg live with his wife, son, and daughter in a small house owned by a dog and two cats in a Charlotte, NC suburb. He retired from FanLit in Septermber 2012 after 4.5 years of faithful service but he still sends us a review every once in a while.
