�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. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.�

This bundle includes the first three books in Morgan Rice�s #1 Bestselling fantasy series THE SORCERER�S RING (A QUEST OF HEROES, A MARCH OF KINGS and A FATE OF DRAGONS). These three bestselling novels are all here in one convenient file. It is a great introduction to the SORCERER�S RING series. Over 200,000 words of reading, all for an incredible price! It is a great deal, and it also makes the perfect gift!

The series tells the epic tale of the coming of age of Thorgrin, a special 14 year old boy, the least loved of his father, as he strives to become a warrior in the magical Kingdom of the Ring, and as he learns he has powers, and a destiny, he does not understand. An outsider, he must fight for acceptance as he strives to join the King�s elite Legion, and as he falls in love with the king�s 16 year old daughter. Most of all, he must learn who he really is, why his destiny is so important, and why the entire fate of The Ring depends on him.

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, THE SORCERER�S RING 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.

Books #4--#13 in the series are now also available!

I am probably only halfway through the first book and I am regretting having bought this. The grammatical errors are sometimes glaring. It's so bloody predictable that you can set a watch to it (or something like that). Everything is so contrived that it stretches the limits of credibility. Thor is granted a place in the king's family because he saved a knight. He gets a falcon (something reserved only for the very privileged) AND finds a snow leopard cub (which is something very mystical and whatnot) and manages to 'bond' with them right away. Even before he gets royal favor, he becomes best friends with the youngest prince and finds a champion in the best knight in the kingdom, all within minutes (seemingly) of being at the castle. His hunting groups kills the biggest boar. He gets the love of the princess. He gets the admiration of the entire Legion because of one brave act when the entire Legion wanted to kill him the day before. And, I swear, people, the other reviewers and I am not making this up: the name of the leopard cub changes spelling constantly. I mean, really. Pick a spelling and keep it! I fault the editor for the grammar and the spelling. I fault the author for such a contrived, predictable plot that it makes this a book that I want to put down, even though I've only read half of the first book. I suppose if you're a kid, you'll love this book. It does have action and adventure and it does very much tell the story of a how a boy makes something of himself by believing in himself. Other than that, if you're an adult who dislikes predictability and noticeable grammatical errors, then steer clear. (Oh! And I haven't even mentioned the fact that the author called a leopard baby a 'pup', have I? And that within 2 pages, the author has the leopard cub 'whining' in fear three or four times? I mean, couldn't the author have chosen another word? I don't know whether to blame the author or the editor for that.)

This series was written by two teenagers who had a computer. I can not believe anbody would compare these books to Lord of the Ring or A Game of Thrones. I will not be buying any more of these books. I wish there was a way to return and get my money back. Badly written rip off of every other good fantasy series....but this is NOT one of them!

If you have dulled perceptions and a high tolerance for grammatical and historical error, this is for you. I understand this is fantasy, but the huge blunders (a castle with a wall a whole foot thick!), a sovereign who leaves a room in a hurry and slams it on his way out (no mention of the door, seems he slammed the room itself). These were the 2 most egregious errors in the first 3 or 4 chapters, but there was an average of one or two per page, taking you out of the story while you figured out what was meant, or how the assertion made any sense in an obviously medieval world. Save your money. There are many good writers of fantasy. Morgan Rice is not one of them.

If the series has been "professionally edited" then the editor needs to find a new profession. I work as an editor for a major publisher and there are so many flaws that I can't bring myself to finish the first book. I feel like I wasted my money.

This Series is amazing nothing boring about it, each page leaves you wanting more and also checking for when the next book comes out so you can snatch it up. If your tired of the same old scenario, don't worry you will be refreshingly suprised at the twist and turns. Hopelessly waiting on the 4th addition!

The editor should have been fired - there are so many mistakes between character names and place names that you need to re-read numerous paragraphs to figure out what is going on. It makes you wonder if she ever learned how to read above the 5th grade level. After reading every page of the first book I figured out that for the rest of the books you can read every third page and still know what is going on. Don't get attached to any of the characters because she is going to kill them off. This series really had a lot of potential but the author gets so wordy that it actually gets so you forget what she is talking about. Her long, drawn out descriptions of fights became tedious. She must have taken lessons on how to make these as gruesome as possible because the violence actually becomes boring. After reading the first nine books of this series I have given up and don't really care what happens to the "heroes" anymore. Lots of potential. Poorly executed.

I don't normally get bundles....when it comes to a series, I'd rather get the first one, then see if I want to continue with it. This would have been one (like "Hunger Games" which I wish I'd gone ahead and purchased the whole series at once.) Then again, I'm relieved that I didn't get the whole series of "Game of Thrones" which I just cannot seem to find myself reading past chapter four.) But...this series...I enjoyed these three books, and I"m looking forward to the fourth as soon as it gets out. After I read the first one, I went and got the next two. I' even went back and read the reviews when I finished the series, and I was surprised. It seemed like the reviewers who have written about it don't see a middle of the road, either they really liked it or felt it had been over-hyped. Well, I enjoyed it, probably along the lines of how I enjoyed the Eddings double series of the Belegariad and the Mallorean. Same kind of adventure, characters that were interesting to follow..though, admittedly not as in depth as the Eddings characters, to my mind, but still, over-all I enjoyed it, and I'm going to get the fourth one as soon as I can. I found the flow easier to follow than some series with multiple points of view (Game of Thrones, for example) and not every "given" ends up being a "given"! I will also say this, there some in the E-formatting. I don't mind if there are some problems with punctuation and spelling, as long as I get the gist of the text. I did find the pagination irregularities to be a minor annoyance. I expected a longer book, but still, the bottom line is this. I've been reading both science fiction and fantasy since I first picked up Andre' Norton's "X-Factor" back in 1966. Some books are classics and tremendously insightful. Others are fluff, a fun read and no more. This one falls, for me, into the category of an enjoyable series read, and one I'm glad to have come across. It is young adult fiction, so if you are an older adult reader who picks this up on a whim, you will certainly have the opportunity to welcome an interesting author and a new series to your bookcase. For me, it goes right there with my enjoyment of Diane Duane's Young Wizard Series, the Eddings' books, right along with the classic "hero's journey" of Star Wars (the original three, of course LOL!)

This entire series is dichotomous.  The primary protagonist and his friends are rich and full, well thought out characters.  The villains though are completely single faceted; they have no soul and the only reason given from them being a villain is that 'they're evil'.  They're caricatures of soulless monsters; real life isn't like that.  In real life, very few villains believe they are.  It's a detriment to this entire series and frequently disturbs the reader into being unable to suspend their disbelief. The other failure is to provide any real challenge to the protagonist and his near-perfection.  He has no flaws and he is never challenged by anything.  It makes the series seem uneven and weak, which is sad because Thor, Reece, Gwen, the twins and even Elden are genuinely likable and you find yourself cheering for them...only to find out, there really wasn't much to the trial they were facing.  These encounters need more depth and understanding. The prose here is definitely juvenile and yet compelling; the story is well thought out in breadth but not enough attention is paid to the individual threads that are woven as if the author is trying so hard to get to the end he/she skips over incidents and explanations.  In this series, you'll love the war but be left unsatisfied by the battles.

This bundle is worth every penny. Once the story started it was hard to put down. It grabs you right from the the beginning and your on this ride with Thor. I cant wait for the next book.

I read the first 3 books of the collection in this bundle. The story was exciting for the adventurous sort, but the writing was a little hollow. There wasn't much depth to the characters or magic when reading it. It could be a good story, but there are grammatical errors. If the story flowed more or had better connections between the multiple story lines, then it would have been better. I read the next bundle as well. I then scoured the internet to find the ending because it was very difficult to enjoy the books. I did not want to spend more money on books I will not read again. I wish it were written better because the story was fun & adventurous!

Very poorly written and even worse editing. Don't bother with this one. .
CharlesB12 More than 1 year ago
While the story line is fairly decent, it recurs over and over and over, ad infinitum. The books are replete with typos and editing errors. Apparently no one proofed these books before printing. When one finds that some words are missing entirely, as well as using the wrong word, it is most egregious. All of the books of this entire series needs a serous proofread for grammatical errors and typos. This is probably a good series for gullible teens.

This book is horribly written and contains multiple errors.

Interesting story but it has many, many, many grammar mistakes and it is very repetitive and predictable. I skipped so many pages and still knew what was going on.

This book has SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO many grammar mistakes and character mix-ups. I feel like I'm reading the type of writing one makes when they're a 3 year old. All who agree post i agree. This dosen't even deserve one star.

I am so sad about this bundle. The story is so interesting, it does indeed grip you fairly quickly, but it is just so terribly written that it's incredibly difficult to read. Morgan Rice clearly has a great imagination, but putting that down on paper is much harder than just conceiving the story. The characters are underdeveloped, there are multiple loose ends and characters we come in contact with and never hear from again, when they should be around, the wording is horrible--- severe repetition, typos, etc...--- and it moves from one thing to another so fast that you don't have time to really divest. However, the saddest thing is that I grew to appreciate the fast, skim over things, pace because of the frustrating writing... all I wanted to do was find out what happened and forget about the terribly written attempts to describe what the characters were feeling. However, despite the fact that I almost stopped reading and deleted these many times because the writing drove me so crazy, I made it to book three and finally got incredibly fascinated with the story. There are so many ways she could take it that I couldn't help being intrigued by which ways she would choose. There were times that I was disappointed; when the directions she chose were shallower and less interesting than I had hoped, but over all I found the series fairly interesting and enjoyable, if you can get past the writing. I have realized though, that it is highly possible though that I might get halfway through the next bundle of books and get completely bored if the story doesn't get developed better soon. The sad thing, is that they could have been masterpieces if done correctly.

The story had a lot of potential, but the writing style was juvenile and repetitive. The hero refers to "dating" and "girlfriends", and how long do they really expect to be able to charge their horses before the poor things collapse?? There were discrepancies in the storyline which were never addressed, and it really bothers me that the hero's faithful leopard sidekick acts so much like a dog. I bought the whole series at once, and at book 10 it's becoming difficult to continue. Not a series I'd recommend for fans of serious epic fantasy.

Needs spell check, and a bit of editing. Great story even if a bit predictable

Simple and formulaic. Written for kids, by a kid I think. I could not even finish it.

As a fan of this genre I have read hundreds of books by dozens of authors. This series is towards the very bottom of the list. Shallow and cliche in character development. The plot is weak and painfully predictable. I pressed forward in reading for two reasons; first, I paid for the books, and second, I held a slowly dying hope that the author would actually get better. Money and time wasted, hope turned to ash.

I purchased this bundle and simply could not put it down. It was so entertaining. It has characters you love and some you love to hate. Morgan Rice did a great job in helping to capture and make you feel each characters emotions. Cant wait untill the next one

This has true potential, but I feel like I'm reading the first draft of a novel. The pacing is a huge problem for me. The natural way life unfolds does not seem to consistently line up with the plot. For example, the main character finds and raises a baby snow leopard, after a few weeks it is somehow large enough to spark fear in trained warriors, and sea monsters and simultaneously fit inside of Thor's shirt. There were way too many dreams, and some of the action scenes took way too long be resolved; two things that are great tools to propel the plot but became tenuous due to overuse. There are also some major plot holes, not to mention the Grammer and spelling errors. I've decided to stop reading about 2/3 of the way into book 3. Hopefully, with the amount of books in the series, the writing gets better for those of you that choose to read on.
