    A dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously.

    Would you try another book from Morgan Rice and/or Wayne Farrell?

    No.


    What could Morgan Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I usually don't review books I listen to. Just usually don't care to take the time. Sorry. But I had to warn other listeners to stay away from this book. Poor writing. Predictable and bad plot. Inconsistencies in the plot. Inexplicable story lines. Shallow characters that you can't engage with. No depth to the characters. I kept listening hoping that it would get better. It didn't. I didn't have any other books to listen to and wasn't where I could download more so I was stuck wading though this book. Would have been better turning it off.


    What didn’t you like about Wayne Farrell’s performance?

    Tempo and reading style hard to listen to. I listen to about one book each week and I could not recommend his reading.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    Just avoid this book. If you decide to listen to anyway, your choice, but you have been warned.

    Roshar is a world of stone and storms. Uncanny tempests of incredible power sweep across the rocky terrain so frequently that they have shaped ecology and civilization alike. Animals hide in shells, trees pull in branches, and grass retracts into the soilless ground. Cities are built only where the topography offers shelter. It has been centuries since the fall of the ten consecrated orders known as the Knights Radiant, but their Shardblades and Shardplate remain: mystical swords and suits of armor.
