Driven by a prophetic vision, Rhapsody races to rescue a religious leader while Achmed and Grunthor seek the F'dor--an ancient and powerful demon.

Trigger Warnings: Sex, mild language.

4.75 I absolutely loved this book. The world is so vivid and its history is so just as interesting as its peoples. Rhapsodie's character is so well developed. Her perspectives were clear and consistent throughout the entire story and relatable. She's a loveable character with a huge heart. A few things bugged me like how everyone had a crush on the main character how unbelievably beautiful she was, but the reasons behind it and the way it helped develop the character was worth it. The relationships in this book seemed like they could be real and not all happy go lucky, which was nice although it took up a lot of the plot. ( )

I liked the first book, the story line, the world and the characters - although I found Rhapsody a bit annoying. In this book, I still like the story line, the world and most of the characters. Rhapsody can be very annoying and some of the characters are just clueless. In addition, an entire romance novel had been embedded in the book. There are long, tedious discussions about:
1. How beautiful Rhapsody is and what nice clothes she has
2. How handsome Ashe is
3. Their feelings for each other - deep love, confusion, misunderstanding - they've got it all.
If the romance to action ratio remains the same I probably won't make it through the third book even though I would like to know how the story ends. ( )

I found this book decidedly more tedious the second time around, some 20 years after my first reading. Still, it advanced the story, and it was nice to see some plot points resolve themselves. ( )

Having found an ancient dragon claw in the depths of Ylorc, Rhapsody vows to return it to it's original owner. Accompanied by the mysterious Ashe, Rhapsody sets off on another journey, this time to find the dragon Elynsynos and return the piece of her missing hoard before the dragon takes her anger out on the surrounding countryside and her Bolg friends. Less than pleased at Rhapsody's decision, but knowing they are unable to change her mind, Achmed and Grunthor stay at home in Ylorc as they search to uncover more secrets that Gwilliam left behind. Yet evil never sleeps and the threat of the F'dor continues to grow, whether they know it or not.

Prophecy is the second on the Rhapsody trilogy and larger Symphony of Ages series. The story picks where events in the first book leave off. The beginning of the story plods, literally, as there is a lot of travel in the first portion of this book. Haydon does a decent job getting the reader through by using this time for some friendly banter and also as a way to give more background information about the world and the characters. Haydon's descriptive writing is beautiful and yes there is a lot of it. The dialogue is both fun and cringe worthy, but in a good way. Seeing how badly some of the interactions go and almost making us feel embarrassed for the characters does a good job of making the characters feel human.

That said, you'll either love or hate Rhapsody as the story progresses. She is definitely in Mary Sue territory. While I found her somewhat annoying at times overall it didn't bother me or hinder my enjoyment of the story.

This book definitely takes on a more adult theme. There is a lot more romance in this book than the first as well as more violence. Haydon is not afraid to get into details either so it may not be the best series for a younger reader.

I'm still enjoying my reread. It is as I remembered it from years past. ( )

Signed in recognition of my honorable mention in the Firbolg songwriting contest. It was probably horrible, like all of my other "poetry" from that era, but I still look on the inscription fondly.
