Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers–Book 1)

“All the ingredients are here for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.” -Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding A Quest of Heroes) From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS-Book 1). Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is. When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon-and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever. 15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too-and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever. With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders. Book #2 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon. “[An] entertaining epic fantasy.” -Kirkus Reviews (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “The beginnings of something remarkable are there.” –San Francisco Book Review (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “Action-packed …. Rice’s writing is solid and the premise intriguing.” –Publishers Weekly (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “A spirited fantasy ….Only the beginning of what promises to be epic young adult series.” –Midwest Book Review (regarding A Quest of Heroes)

I have just finished reading this new Morgan Rice Book “The Rise of the Dragons” (Kings and Sorceres–Book 1 This is the first Morgan Rice Book I have read and I must say I was completely under her spell as she wove her story, like weaving a grand tapestry. Intersecting her story with threads of other lives. Young Kyra is a young motherless girl growing up in her fathers fort, her constant companion a wolf. She so wants to be a warrior, but it is forbidden for a female. I love how…
