The #1 Bestseller!

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes the debut of a dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER'S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King's men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King's Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King's Court and be taken seriously.

But King's Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King's Legion.

Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king's daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king's sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons.

Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down--and the entire kingdom with him.

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders, including fans of George RR Martin, Sarah J. Maas, Rick Riordan, and readers of the legends of King Arthur and Merlin. It is 82,000 words.

Books #2--#17 in the series are now also available!

Okay, so yes there were a few grammar/spelling errors but what ebook does not have them. I got this book thinking I would give it a try. It was so interesting that I could not put it down. I finished it in less than a day and was delighted. I have become a fan and may even try one of the vampire books...which I have not read or been interested in for many, many years since Anne Rice. The plot was entertaining and had a good twist towards the end. That is all I will say so as to not give away anything.

Love it, it's a book the whole family can enjoy.. As soon I started to read this book I found that I could not stop until I was done. I purchase this book thinking it was probably going to be more for my twelve year old than a 30 year old like me but I was totally captivated by Thor's character. Thor is someone who is courageous and knows he wants to be a somebody in life and not only dreams but he actually goes out there and proves he can do it. Can't wait to find out how Thor's character will develops into the hero I know he will become. Please Ms. Rice don't take to long to write the next book, I love all your work.

First book i have ever read by Morgan Rice, and I must say it was impressive! Yes the word breaks were annoying, but easily overlooked if you were into the story. I found Thor an honest hero to be, not so sure i like Gwen! Female characters are lacking, seem shallow. I am sure i will read the next book when it comes out! Look forward to it!

I thought this book was a great read. The story line is nothing special and it is not a challenging book to read, which I wanted at the time. What this book has is enough description that you can form images in your head without over doing it. I am looking forward to the next book.

Amazing read! Original and unexpected in so many ways. So many twists and turns I didn't see coming. Sets the stage for an epic series. Looking forward to the next one. I completely disagree with all the haters, who are obviously just trying to bring down the book (rival authors?) and who attack it for spelling and typos while their own reviews are filled with grammatical errors!  Sad. I guess hypocrisy never ends.
