A March of Kings takes us one step further on Thor's epic journey into manhood, as he begins to realize more about who he is and what his powers are, and as he embarks to become a warrior.
After he escapes from the dungeon, Thor is horrified to learn of another assassination attempt on King MacGil. When MacGil dies, the kingdom is set into turmoil. As everyone vies for the throne, King's Court is rifer than ever with its family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence, and betrayal. An heir must be chosen from among the children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, will have a chance to be wielded by someone new. But all this might be upended: The murder weapon is recovered, and the noose tightens on finding the assassin. Simultaneously, the MacGils face a new threat from the McClouds, who are set to attack again from within the Ring.
Thor fights to win back Gwendolyn's love, but there may not be time: He is told to pack up, to prepare with his brothers-in-arms for The Hundred, a hundred grueling days of hell that all Legion members must survive. The Legion will have to cross the Canyon, beyond the protection of the Ring, into the Wilds, and set sail across the Tartuvian Sea for the Isle of Mist, said to be patrolled by a dragon, for their initiation into manhood.
Will they make it back? Will the Ring survive in their absence? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

"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." (Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos)
While the story is good and well written, it 's too short and the ending left one hanging. I actually went back to make sure I'd downloaded the whole thing. So in the end it was disappointing, all I could think was WHAT?
Because of this it was only worth 1/2 a credit.
some of the author's favorite words; hardly, ever, never and it seems that everyone's heart is always pounding. I'm hoping he took a 5 year sabbatical and pursued a literature course catalog at a reputable College before he wrote the third in the series as the storyline shows great promise.
I kept waiting for these books to get better. Unfortunately they don't. These plot has alot going on and the description seems promising. But after the 1239812390128390238290382 acceptance of death on many different characters' behalves I can not go on. The author picks one phrase and uses it over and over again. The narrator speaks very slowly but his voice is okay. Not worth it.
This book picks up right where book 1 left off. If you liked book 1, you have to listen to this one. The story just keeps on Rock'n. So much happens in this book. It's so captivating and entertaining. It's just as good as the first book. This is the best series ever! It's a 10 book series. I hope audible produces audio books for the other 8 books soon.
Wayne Farrell is freak'n awesome! I love his reading of "A Quest of Heros", the first book in the Sorcerer's Ring series. He does such a good job. He's truly talented.
many times there were many times during the performance that a bunch of the first words would be cut off. instead of saying she the audio would come out and make it sound like he or the first word or even the first sound of the main character's name would be cut off.
Same as the previous book in this series. The audio, like all the books in this series is choppy. Was not happy even though I kept getting the next book book and the next...till I got fed up and pissed that I bought them or used credits for them
I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
I love the story line but this part of the book was slow.
Wayne does a great job with the books he reads.
This is really a fantastic series! Take all of the best of epic fantasy literature and squeeze them into a 7 hour book and you get this. I listened to this in one sitting when I should have been paying bills and working on the honeydo list. I still wish it was longer and didn't have cliffhangers. However, I do recommend this to anyone who likes Tolkien, Sanderson, and Martin.
"What is next"
The time frames jump around occasionally detracting from an otherwise brilliant story with some distance to travel.
Weak characters, failing strory, and not much imagination put into this book. Look out for the frightful lack of consistency within the story... Quite Monotonous.
I found the story ok but the use of five times too many wards and the monotony of the narrator really boring if this is what the author has to do to pad out his books then I will not be purchasing any more
