Présentation de l'éditeur

Trapped within the City of Light when it fell to the Empire, James’ young friend and companion Miko, had been captured by the Empire's forces and is now being taken as a slave into the Empire. The last thing he’d told Miko before they were separated was: “I’ll find you.”

Now James, with the help of some new found allies, travels into the Empire to rescue his friend. Acting as a caravan merchant from Cardri, he goes from city to city in his attempt to find his friend.

From the City of Light, to the slave markets of Korazan, even unto the Empire's capital itself, James continues in his search for his friend Miko, unwilling to leave him to his fate.

In this exciting second book of the epic fantasy series, The Morcyth Saga, Brian S. Pratt has continued to give us the heart pounding action that his readers so much enjoyed in the first novel.

Fires of Prophecy continues after the fall of the City of Light. This book has more action than its predecessor.

One of the things I really liked about it was that James, the main character learns there are consequences to the use of magic. In one chapter he brings water to quench his thirst. In the next he learns that in so doing, he altered the flow of water underground and turned an oasis dry, virtually sentencing the inhabitants of the town which grew up around it to ruin.

The interactions between the characters are good, especially during the fight scenes. I think in this book my favorite duo is Tinok and Jiron, knife fighters out of the fight pits of the City of Light.

Emmensly entertaining, I recommend it to everyone!!

James has found little more about the medallion he bears but he has discovered that the limits of his magical abilities can be stretched according to the vast imagination he draws on. he has gotten used to the magical place in which he now resides, including the pizza.

I liked it. I mean in a world of books there's many bad one's and some good one's. This falls in-between. Nothing wrong with that. I'll take what I can get when it comes to novels. I don't believe I'll read any more in the series, but I amused myself reading the first two books in a little less than 5 hours. That's all most people look for in a fantasy novel hopefully. In regards to the story, I enjoyed the sort of fatherly dynamic James has with Mako, Maiko? Reminds me of a good dynamic in "Into the Abyss". Besides that, and some cool stereotypical magical theories, I didn't like much more. Not to say that there were many dislikes. Perhaps as other readers may have pointed out, James IS the center of the world. I personally prefer a MC that is the center of the world, but the side characters were only good for killing people, hiding, getting caught, and dying. Seriously, I don't think I've read a series or story where someone gets knocked unconscious or abducted as often as James and company. I mean the rate at which they're going through corpses is rising at the same rate as the market in 2007. YET! Yet for all these kidnappings and unconscious escapades, no one is killed while held prisoner. Seriously, we;re talking about ruthless killers who need to keep secrets. What do they do when they're found out? Capture James or associates. Even after a series of captures by the same group. Well whatever. It's okay. I needed/wanted amusement. I got it. Most people will probably get some too out of this book.

I have completed the entire series and this review encompasses all of these installments. I think it is somewhat unfair to rate a series based on a single installment. In addition I know that for me I read about 4 books a week and generally read an entire series if I start. I wish i had read a review before starting this series.

The overall plot and pace of book are decent. The basic concept for the book is somewhat original.

Now the things that really bug me about the book:

1. Grammar.
2. Made up and misused vocabulary that should be in the basic toolkit of any author. I have to give just a few examples that really annoyed me and made me yell at the author. He uses the phrase 'empirical soldier' instead of using the appropriate imperial soldier, James frequently describes himself as being systematical, describes a situation as 'problematical', confuses heel and heal numerous times, lists 3 items then states 'neither', not to mention lack of variance in presenting dialogue.
3. Very shallow characters: James' great love interest is essentially a girl he met at a party one night, sent a dolphin analogue carving to as a gift, and had a paragraph conversation with after a high seas rescue. Give 7 installments in this saga, before we can buy this as a great love maybe a bit more development is needed.
4. James, James, and James - this character is shallow, vapid, inconsistent, and a whiner. Typical high school student nothing exceptional other than his ability to wish really, really hard. He is constantly preaching a somewhat socialist mantra about helping the poor and uses the communist phrase 'for the greater good' several times in the book. Yet James is the only person who seems always to skip his turn on watch, nobody is allowed to eat until he sits down at dinner, he has the only valet in the war camp, they are all in the adventures together but somehow James is the one in control of the purse. Having a spoiled teenage daughter I can recognize the poorly considered, shallow, and vociferously championed positions of the author via James.

My suggestion as an alternative to this series- find a self centered vapid teenager who has a very high opinion of their insight and lurk on their facebook page. The dialogue will be every bit as enlightened as James and Miko.

HASH(0x9ba4533c) étoiles sur 5 Better than the first one! 1 février 2006
Par Toby Fyfe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The second installment of Mr. Pratt's epic fantasy series, Morcyth Saga, is even more intense than the first.

Basic story premise: At the end of the previous book, Miko, James friend and companion, is captured by the slavers during the fall of The City of Light. James plans to rescue his friend. He has the help of two knife fighters, Jiron and Tinok who developed their skill in the Fight Pits of the City of Light.

In this book Mr. Pratt explores some of the consequences of being a slave and shows the misery and horror of being one. By the end of the book the reader learns to hate the Empire and everything it stands for.

James goes from city to city within the Empire in the guise of a caravan merchant from Cardri and causes no end of trouble. The scenes in the cities are especially exciting, such as when they are discovered and have to fight their way out. Fortunately, James has surrounded himself with capable people.

More visits from the enigmatic little creature make you wonder just what his roll is. Are his visits clues, or just pointless entertainment? Don't want to spoil it.

James continues to develop in his magic, creating more interesting and increasingly devastating spells. Again he draws from his repertoire of spells from his role playing days to save his life.

This book is a must read for anyone who read the first one. It doesn't end in a cliffhanger as the first one, but in the end introduces a new level of challenge that James will face in the third installment. It is action packed and intense

After reading the entire series, I would say that it was both enjoyable and lacking in substance. The series felt like it was written for a younger reader. (Maybe it was.) The first book left a lot to be desired and I almost didn't buy the next one. The rest of the series flowed fairly well. The biggest complaint I have is the dialog between the characters. It didn't feel or sound like two people talking in a real life context. The last book, "Mists of Sorrows" ended much too quickly, almost like Pratt was missing a deadline. Overall, I would rate it middle of the road, not poor nor great.
