About R. Alan Ferguson

"I started writing in 2002, it was when I was working in the injection moulding department of a factory that I had the Idea to write, The Second Prophecy (wasn't called that then). I was on my lunch break and as it was night shift, I was on my own in the canteen, when the thought of the character of John Stark came to me. I have always had a great imagination, so I spent the second half of the eight hour shift adding to the idea for the character, and when I got home I sat down in front of my computer and started writing."

"I took a long break after writing my novel. It was mainly because I couldn't find a publishing company to take it on, although I got good reviews from everyone who read it. Even the son of my English tutor, who I have never met(the son, not the English tutor). The truth is, I lost heart that I would get it published through conventional means. Then I read about Amazon letting people publish their work for free, and thought I would try it, which lead to me finding my new home here on Smashwords."

"I Have more than a few ideas for more stories, and I'm looking forward to writing and publishing them all."

I originally downloaded this book a while back and started reading it, I liked it despite all the mistakes that plagued it. It was hard to read, though I found out that it was re-edited and thought I would download a new copy and try it. I'm really glad that I did as this version is so much easier to read and lets you delve into this new imaginative world for a truly magical adventure.

This is definitely one of the best books I've read in a long while. If you like wizards, magic, and adventure, then this is the story for you.
I am giving this book Five stars because that's how much I like it.
Though it is obvious that this author has only started out, I can't wait to see what he will be able to do when he gets more writing experience.

Review by: Midu Hadi on Dec. 28, 2012 :
What I liked about this book:
the beginning was sweet and interested me enough to read ahead
the humor which sprung up in unlikely places and kept the tale from being too dark- the exchange between Delsani and Peter about "roadrunner" was one such scene.
the relationship between John and Helene
how the different factions seemed to mistrust each other, even though they were on the same side and the funny situations it led to.

What I didn't like:
quite a few spelling mistakes-obvious enough to put me off
the dialogue felt awkward in a lot of places
like a lot of first books, this one contains scenes that could be left out or happen off stage, as well as, repetitive conversations
the Council plans to mess with Peter's memories and his mom agrees to it?
Peter's personality is inconsistent-sometimes we're told he's shy in front of strangers and at other times, he behaves in the exact opposite way!
the scene where Peter starts to confront his bully of a teacher- it breaks off and there's this huge info dump and then we're thrown back into the scene again.

What I found confusing:
how could nothing be known about the Valcotas?
why was there a lot of misunderstanding about the prophecies/ wizard history?
