Overview

In the wake of the dragon's attack, Kyra is sent on an urgent quest: to cross Escalon and seek out her uncle in the mysterious Tower of Ur. The time has come for her to learn about who she is, who her mother is, and to train and develop her special powers. It will be a quest fraught with peril for a girl alone, Escalon filled with dangers from savage beasts and men alike-one that will require all of her strength to survive.

Her father, Duncan, must lead his men south, to the great water city of Esephus, to attempt to free his fellow countrymen from the iron grip of Pandesia. If he succeeds, he will have to journey to the treacherous Lake of Ire and then onto the icy peaks of Kos, where there live the toughest warriors of Escalon, men he will need to recruit if he has any chance of taking the capital.

Alec escapes with Marco from The Flames to find himself on the run through the Wood of Thorns, chased by exotic beasts. It is a harrowing journey through the night as he quests for his hometown, hoping to be reunited with his family. When he arrives, he is shocked by what he discovers.

Merk, despite his better judgment, turns back to help the girl, and finds himself, for the first time in his life, entangled in a stranger's affairs. He will not forego his pilgrimage to the Tower of Ur, though, and he finds himself anguished as he realizes the tower is not what he expects.

Vesuvius spurs his giant as he leads the Trolls on their mission underground, attempting to bypass The Flames, while the dragon, Theos, has his own special mission on Escalon.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE VALIANT 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, 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.

This book, like many others now a days, does not have a real beginning, middle and end. It has a good story line, but rambles on a bit. Each chapter tells the story of a different individual. You assume that they will all meet together at some point, but they do not. At least in this book. I found the book riddled with grammatical errors, and repeats the same sentences over and over. "I know that I am going to die right here." "They / he / she marched on and on." "And there did too." We're the most common repeats. The same Roy has a good plot line, but could use a good cleaning.

Apparently the author writes as fast as she can without concern about grammer or detail. One big error which added to my decision to be done with this series was the fact that heroine threw both halves of her staff into the eyes of the squid and then went over the waterfall yet magically, she had her staff a short time later.

Intriguing storyline but all the main characters are too lucky, good, loyal, persistent, confident, giving and understanding. Except for Merk. I understand it's fiction/fantasy but the people are close to unbelievable. The chapters all have the same theme, i.e. character gets into no - win situation but against all odds lands on their feet on the winning side. I won't even comment on the editing because it seems like it the story was never edited by anyone. The first book was good for the most part but I paid for this installment and I'm more than halfway through and quite disallusioned. I hope it gets better.

Fantastic read. After reading the first in this series I waited until I had gotten the whole series before I continued to read. So I reread Rise of the Dragons so I could read all 6 one after the other. The bad thing about that is I really did not get much sleep as this was another hard to put down book. However many grammatical errors. Also used the wrong character name in a number of places.

I really like the series but like with all her books they have name and grammatical errors. But especially this book has a huge error in regards to Kyra's staff huge disappointment.

Morgan Rice has done it again. The follow-up series to The Sorcerer's Ring series is outstanding.
