The #1 Bestseller!

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!

“Grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go….This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning.”
--Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned}

“A great plot, and this especially was the kind of book you will have trouble putting down at night. The ending was a cliffhanger that was so spectacular that you will immediately want to buy the next book, just to see what happens.”
--The Dallas Examiner {regarding Loved}

“A spirited fantasy that weaves elements of mystery and intrigue into its story line. A Quest of Heroes is all about the making of courage and about realizing a life purpose that leads to growth, maturity, and excellence….For those seeking meaty fantasy adventures, the protagonists, devices, and action provide a vigorous set of encounters that focus well on Thor's evolution from a dreamy child to a young adult facing impossible odds for survival….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.”

    I do not like to buy books in this format because they say there are more than one book in the series. If you bought a printed version of the 3 (?) books in this series it would not even be one book. Probably if you bought the whole series it might make one or 2 books at best. I am done with this. If you can’t give us the whole book don’t bother. It is an ok series of books but it does drone on and on.
  • It’s great!

    Ignore all of the negative reviews, they are literally littered throughout this review feed. I do agree yes this book has its ups and downs in the grammar area and plot and things of relation; yet there still is something to it that just draws me in. Granted everyone who is upset should be the books are really not up to par of what we are use to, but it’s still a good read. Honestly a quick read; I recommend you pick up the entire series and read it. It’s quite interesting, even with the mistakes.
  • How did this make it to print?

    I’ve never rolled my eyes so hard while attempting to read a book. I could go into detail but I haven’t the time. Just know that the plot is the cheesiest, most predictable, most nonsensical thing. It will leave you with more questions than answers and not good ones! You’ll wonder why every character is cliche and ignorant. You’ll wonder how things just “happen” and so easily! Protagonist is obviously the savior of the world who immediately gets the girl and the only problems he has is due to his own ineptitude. There’s nothing about any of the characters to love and they all run around in circles doing nothing much at all.

    Well to say the least this is one of the best fantasy books I've read I'm on the second one and I love it so far. Amazing work. Morgan Rice. I've read one of her other books and it was amazing as well. Haven't gotten into the other parts but will eventually. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼.
  • It’s ok but it could be better

    Alright so I’ll start with the thing I have problems with. First is the authors use of cliches. He says things like “kid in a candy store” and while that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it does raise some questions about the writing style. He’s a knight in training. There weren’t candy stores in this time period and while we know what that means as a reader it detracted from the overall feeling of that chapter. Also I feel like the battle tactics they are teaching aren’t correct. You would never throw a weapon away. That’s not a good idea. It gives the enemy a weapon to use and if you miss then you don’t have a weapon. So I feel like a little more research on the topic of knights and battle strategy should have been implemented. Ok so here’s what I like, it has great characters and I feel a great connection to Thor. The author uses imagery really well to connect me to where I’m at and that’s a great aspect. Other than that there’s not much else. Wish I could give this a higher score but the issues I stated detract from my reading experience.
  • Great book
