“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal.

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. It is 82,000 words. 

Books #3--#17 in the series are now also available!

    Fantastic tale of fantasy!

    This book is, I believe meant for a younger audience but as an adult I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a great story that takes me back to the stories of Dragonlance or Tolkien. The story moves along at a good pace with likeable characters and a good plot. I'm very much looking forward to reading the rest of this series and I'm glad to have discovered a new (to me) author in the process. If you like stories of knights and royal courts and adventure, then I highly recommend this book!

    Seems a bit familiar

    A lot of the names and storyline seems familiar from bits of other books. The sword that no-one can lift, Gwendolyn, etc... It finishes on a bit of a cliffhanger though so I will need to read the next part to really make-up my mind. It is a pleasant story and grand for something light to read through.

    Great adventure

    You can immerse yourself in a really captivating story fill with adventure, fantasy, courage and how our hero starts to change from boyhood into becoming a warrior. I have to keep reading the next books and see what else does he become. But overall seems like great fictional world too become a part off for a few hours
