A good sequel. However, if you have not first read Rhapsody, you may not understand what is happening in Prophecy; this part of the story does not stand well on its own. I've also enjoyed better writing, but the imaginative use of music and magic, and the interesting "sidekick" characters kept me entertained throughout.
Parents, please be aware that this series is NOT for children, as it contains adult situations and graphic scenes.

A promising series. The first 2 books have been good. I now eagerly await the third.

Driven by a prophetic vision, Rhapsody races to rescue a religious leader while Achmed adn Grunthor seek the F'dor, an ancient and powerful demon. These companions may be destined to fulfill the prophecy of the three, but their time is running short. They must find their elusive enemy before his darkness consumes them all.

Book 2 of the RHAPSODY series by Elizabeth Haydon. It's enjoyable, but it's far from a perfect novel. Haydon is obviously a new writer, and I would wager a young woman. The book is geared more towards teen/20something women than males, but that doesn't mean it's not enjoyable - it certainly is. Read the first book first, and if you like it, then move on to this one. There are interesting characters (mainly not the main char, IMO) and the way magic works is interesting, and the world is pretty neat. I wouldn't quite call this "fluff", but it's maybe only one step above. Enjoyable, interesting, but flawed.

Book two of four (so far) in an EPIC FANTASY series. If you've read the first (Rapsody) you know what to expect. The saga continues, with trials, travails, love found, love lost. Not as good as the first, but still worth the effort.

This book was a x-mas present. I tried to read it but it is the 2nd in a series and I was lost. I am going to start at the beginning so the lucky person that gets this book will get the be the first one to break it in!

I did enjoy this book. The final book really dragged on and had very boring dialogue. Too much love stuff... this person kissed that person and la-de-dah - it was so nice. Give me a break. In my opinion that was purly page-filling fluff!

My favorite of the three books. Liked the characters, didn't care much for the romance scenes but liked the rest.
