Rise of the Valiant (Kings and Sorcerers--Book 2) by Morgan Rice

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.

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.

Great read

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.

The story started out great with book one, and I was able to let go the few errors I found. However, this second book has far more errors than the first one, and though I enjoyed the story to some degree, they greatly hampered the readability. I spent more time trying to figure out what it was supposed say than I did actually enjoying the story. I will wait for the third book to become available for free, or until she gets an editor to redo these who can do their job right. Until that happens, though, I will not be sinking hard-earned money into this series. Read on book fans, wherever you are. -GadZooks

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.

The book is mildly interesting. It has a few gramattical errors, skipped words, and misspellings, but overall, it is pretty good.

I love this story but wish it was longer. I wish there was more information about the journies of each character

The 1st book was great, the 2nd I've almost convinced myself had to be written by someone else! Every character has done something stupid!! It's hard to be invested in a character when they have the intelligence of a two year old.

I have read both books in the series and I am addicted. I cannot wait for the next book to come out so I can see what happens to Kyra. You're a wonderful writer and your books keep you enticed and wanting more. Keep up the good work looking forward two number three

I found both to be really great reading. I could not put down either of them. For 4 days all i did was read the story & get to know all the characters. Now I can't wait for the 3rd book to come out.

People are saying it has grammer issues but I am great at grammer and I did not see any but maybe that is because I read so fast:)

This is really a great series. I do have a major complaint though. The proofreading is HORRIBLE. There are numerous grammatical and spelling mistakes throughout the book that really do need to be addressed; and not just the first book, but each of the subsequent 5 books as well. Doesn't speak well of the publisher. This said, the series is one of the best I have ever read. I absolutely LOVED THEM.

Way too predictable in the outcomes¿ of all the situations. Not enough energy to get the blood pumping. Rather read David Eddings or Steven Donaldson¿

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.
