A Realm of Shadows (Kings and Sorcerers--Book 5) by Morgan Rice

A REALM OF SHADOWS is book #5 in Morgan Rice's bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS, a free download)!

In A REALM OF SHADOWS, Kyra finds herself in the midst of a burning capital, attacked by a host of dragons, clinging for life. With her beloved homeland destroyed, The Flames down and the trolls pouring in, Kyra must urgently quest to Marda to retrieve the magic weapon before it is too late-even if it takes her into the very heart of darkness.

Duncan finds himself trapped, with the others, in the burning capital, and he uses all his wits to find his men, attempt escape, and rally his forces to regroup and attack Pandesia. Across the kingdom, Merk sails with King Tarnis' daughter through the Bay of Death as they abandon the Tower of Kos and sail for the warrior isle of Knossos. Pursued by Vesuvius and his army of trolls, crossing the world's most treacherous waters, they know they have little chance to reach the isle, and even less chance of escape.

Dierdre and Marco survive the tidal wave that destroyed Ur only to find their beloved city under water. With everyone they knew and loved lost and dead, they must pick up the pieces and journey to the one person they know who is left alive: Kyra. Alec, meanwhile sails back for Escalon with the people of The Lost Isles, holding the precious sword that might just change everything. But none expect to encounter a land destroyed, a land that is now teeming with dragons.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, A REALM OF SHADOWS 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.

Book #6 in KINGS AND SORCERERS is also available!

The basic storyline of this series is good. Good enough that I continue to read despite the incongruity of the whole thing. In book three Vicuivious (spelling?) was killed but we find him alive again in book 4 where he captures Kyle with a special net and leaves for the tower of Kos. Then in book 5, they are all back at the battle at the capitol, Kyle has never been captured, and he is battling everyone when the dragons appear. Furthermore the author lacks a significant vocabulary to write the story. She has an awesome imagination and I think with a good editor and lots of proofreading she could be quite good. In the meantime it often sounds like a very violent story being read to children as she keeps writing and writing and writing, I know the author has written many books and I doubt I could come close to writing as much as she has, I just wish they were more literally sound. The story line deserves 5 stars, the actual writing, which the editor should be directing, deserves more like a 2 star rating. I will continue to plod through the series because, as I said it's a good storyline and I want to see how it ends.

This story has potential to be sure. The most glaring issue is this writer's consistency. She says there are dozens of some force at the end of one chapter and in another chapter it has turned into hundreds or even thousands. This is a vain attempt at keeping the reader enthralled yet if you are an avid reader or out of the 9th grade, this gets old really quick and she uses this very often. When she says no one has gotten past a certain point yet remains are found past this point which clearly indicates the opposite of what was stated. The only thing this author can credit herself on in the consistency realm is the fact the she uses the "imminent death" trope until she has actually killed it. How many times can one character (in this case six) use the phrase (or variation of it) "and I knew I was now going to meet my death." YET THEY NEVER DO!!! There is no tension nor do we as the reader ever get to be a part of a truly epic rescue. They hold no weight after the first few attempts fall so flat yet the author copy and pastes them all over this series. The only thing I want now is to get to the end of this series. I trapped myself by continuing past the first book. I don't share the consistency of being rescued with these books because unlike these characters, once I reach the end of this story, my interest in this author is really will be dead.

I wish she didn't leave off there but there's another book in the series after this. The ability of the people in the series to escape death after repeatedly saying they would die there is a bit annoying.

I read the Kings and Sorcerers series (all because of a free download) hoping the writing would mature or get better but it didn't. The overall plot line isn't bad but the writing is redundant, immature, and every character is pretty much the same. I ended up skimming chunks because I found the writing boring. No humor at all and the characters take themselves way too seriously. Unfortunately I can't bring myself to read another of her books after this. Far better and more enjoyable writers that I would recommend: Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, Chloe Neill, Faith Hunter, Jenn Stark, Anne Bishop, Keri Arthur, Seanan McGuire, Devon Monk, Deborah Harkness, Kim Harrison, Karen Chance, Carrie Vaughn, Christina Henry, etc. I'm leaving people out because the list is too long but here are some of my favorites for anyone interested in fantasy/urban fiction/fiction.

Great continuing story line but continued bad editing. Each book gets harder to get through since some characters are still referred to incorrectly and the grammatical erros.

Yet another awesome adventure for Kyra and her family..... Every book in this series so far has been a page turner. Can't wait to get my hands on the final book in the series to see what is in store for our young heroine.
