A MARCH OF KINGS is Book #2 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, following A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1).

A MARCH OF KINGS takes us one step further on Thor's epic journey into manhood, as he begins to realize more about who he is, what his powers are, and as he embarks to become a warrior.

After he escapes from the dungeon, Thor is horrified to learn of another assassination attempt on King MacGil. When MacGil dies, the kingdom is set into turmoil. As everyone vies for the throne, King's Court is more rife than ever with its family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. An heir must be chosen from among the children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, will have a chance to be wielded by someone new. But all this might be upended: the murder weapon is recovered, and the noose tightens on finding the assassin. Simultaneously, the MacGils face a new threat by the McClouds, who are set to attack again from within the Ring.

Thor fights to win back Gwendolyn's love, but there may not be time: he is told to pack up, to prepare with his brothers in arms for The Hundred, a hundred grueling days of hell that all Legion members must survive. The Legion will have to cross the Canyon, beyond the protection of the Ring, into the Wilds, and set sail across the Tartuvian Sea for the Isle of Mist, said to be patrolled by a dragon, for their initiation into manhood.

Will they make it back? Will the Ring survive in their absence? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A MARCH OF KINGS 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.

NOTE: In response to reader requests, the book has now been professionally edited and copyedited, and this file version has all the typographical and grammatical errors corrected.

"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. There is not a dull moment to be found."
--Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned}

"Jam packed with action, romance, adventure, and suspense. Get your hands on this one and fall in love all over again."
--vampirebooksite.com (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}

5 Stars for a great story. I hope the next book gets proof read before release.

Good plot but reads like an elementary school primer. The glowing reviews comparing to real works of fiction is laughable and sad at the same time. Needs an editor to help with glaring gramatical and word/adjective selection. This could be so much more with some additional work/focus. Right now it is more like reading a comic book and I continue to read as it is a cheap read. Hmmm maybe you truly do get what you pay for???

Although it was a little short, she managed to pick up from where she left off in the first book without managing to lose someone. She also gives more depth to the series by telling the story from the pov of several characters, also building the main character list. You see changes in characters and others join together. Most importantly you see Thor continue to grow into the best he can be. Furthermore the ending of the book leaves a stopping point for the author to foreshadow events to come in the following novels in a way that leaves you with a reason to finish reading the series.

Again, disappointing. A really great story idea is crushed under the weight of poor writing and lack of editing. I read book 2 hoping that these failings from book 1 might have been improved, but it was no better. How does a book that feels like a first draft ever see the light of day?

Short read wish there was more in each book but love that the books are being published quickly. Really would love if there are More than 3 books! Theres many more side stories that can be developed for a long detailed and adventure packed series! Like erec or kendrick!

Pg. 461 just one move away a full-fledged - the word "from" is missing. Pg. 477 Gareth walked the room - Gareth? I thought it was Godfrey. Pg. 489 Clearly...mean to... - MeanT to. Pg. 518 terror- stricken stricken - I think we can do without the extra stricken. I only started tracking towards the end. I read alot, so I find myself editing alot. It really never bothers me much. I correct something, then move on. However, this is a little much! Does it cost that much to get an editor??? Also, WHAT is UP with the pages?!? 537?? It's more like 237! The storie itsef wax gord if u can ged pas the typers! And yes, that last line was exactly like reading this book.

The book was great just a little short for my liking. It is a great extension to the first book and is setting up forthcoming events in the series nicely now i just cant wait until the next book.

I like the series (I've read both books so far) and I understand that it is written for a younger audiences. The story is solid. I like the characters and there is enough development of those characters to keep me interested. The issue I have is with the editing of the books. Its almost as if the book was proof read before being published. I remember one part in the first book where the author changed the spelling of Krohn's name for about 3 chapters to Khron (I think) and then switched it back. There is another part in the second book towards the end where the author messes up her pronouns. She is describing something that is referring to a man but then refers to him as "her". The other mistake I readily remember is when she confuses two of the characters in the middle of a chapter. She is speaking about Gareth but at one point calls him Godfrey. Again, I like the story just needs to be proof read before publishing.

Can’t wait for book 3! Once again Ms. Rice has created an incredible story line and kept me on the edge of my seat for the entire read. I have read all her books and this story is evolving into another great story which I presume will evolve over many books. I finished this book in one sitting and was disappointed when it was over. It was a fun “ride”. I cannot wait for the next installment. This is an easy, enjoyable read that created plots, enemies, heroes and villains in this book and for the future books, with plenty of twists and turns. I highly recommend this book and the series and can also recommend it to anyone, who, like me, has children too.

I, like one of the other customers cannot believe the reviews for this book. even though the story line was ok the writing was horrific. maybe im wrong and all the people writing the reviews are 9 yrs boys but other wise it nonsense. to compare her to george martin and many other great writers is beyond belief. the white lepord is a perfect example, one day he finds a new born cub and two days later it kills a huge snake. this book should have said it was for children not adults.

If you enjoyed the first book, you must read the second. Awesome book just like the first.it hooks you from the first word, to the last. Many nights I went to bed late not wanting to put the book down. Don't forget to read number 3.
StacyBook-junky More than 1 year ago
A quest for heroes the first book, was a good book but a little drawn out in places the author was very descriptive, ( which is a good thing kind of feels like you are there) going into the second, A March of Kings, the book starts to come alive for me. I have read all three books and cannot wait for the fourth. Hurry Morgan Rice!!!!

I really like how morgan wrote the plot. Since I love the book my only complaint is that it was too short. Can't wait to see how morgan finishes the trilogy in the next book.

a good read, but definitely geared toward young teenagers/preteens. kind of a cross between harry potter and the inheritance series (eragon).

I have noticed many people calling Rice's series a trilogy...please go to her blog...you will in fact see that there is a fourth book being released...please dont call something a trilogy before doing a little research! Gives readers false information!

It does not have good grammar. It needs a proof reader to fix the errors I would say save your money and skip to the third book in the series, but you'd skip a lot and not understand what's going on. The story itself is good.

This book and the one before was absolute crap prose was awful the writing was awful character development is awful world development is awful, the storyline makes you not want to put it down, I want to keep on reading but I want to throw it away at the same time

Too short to call a book. Poor editing. "They had fell for it..." Really???? I enjoyed the storyline, but it appears someone was in too big a hurry to get another book out there.

This "book" is simply horrible, there are so many errors. There is a severe lack of imagination and character depth/ development.. If this is actually a "bestselling author", well, just call me Frodo.

Good premise but extremely poor writing.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
You are an idiot the book is excellent the unrealistic plots with amazing pullouts? If you dont like that then stay away from most series such as the inheritance cycle and the hunger games and the maximum ride series thats whats amazing about the books that the character can escape almost any situation with thier powers. Also about the sudden endings? Thats actually a good idea and smart of the author because it leaves the audence wanting more. Why dont you think about these things and respond to me Zexonomus?

I am going to say that the main character is MY AGE!!!!! I am almost 12 I Think that being that age it made it easier to ignore spelling and i got a great viewpoint Hint "THINK KID" it helps.
