A breathtaking new epic fantasy series. Morgan Rice does it again! This magical saga reminds me of the best of J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini and J.R.R. Tolkien. I couldn’t put it down!” (Allegra Skye, Bestselling author of SAVED)
The #1 Bestselling book, with over 300 five star reviews on Amazon, now available on audio!
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.
Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king’s daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king’s sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons.
With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES 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.
Book #2—A MARCH OF KINGS—is also available in audio, and books #3--#11 in the series will also be available in audio soon!

This book isn't for anyone who pays attention to what they're reading or listening to.
I don't think a single page of this has ever been introduced to an editor. There are strings of sentences that all repeat the same thing - and using the same words! The author is too lazy to come up with different phrases and just uses the same ones over and over. E.g., the main character is "burning with indignation". Then two sentences later, "Indignation is burning in his veins." And in the next paragraph, he's "burning with indignation" again. As a result the characters have no depth and it's very difficult to immerse yourself in the story. The plot is also relatively unimaginative, but I expected that.
The narrator is a good fit for this author. They both have a very small, shallow bag of tricks to work with. The vast majority of sentences in the story are all voiced with the exact same inflection, as if the writing were metered or in verse. It usually doesn't suite the actual content of the text, and becomes terribly annoying very quickly.
I was very disappointed with the whole book almost immediately. And depending on my mood otherwise, listening would sometimes make me so frustrated with the stupid mis-steps by the author and narrator that I had to stop.
This isn't fantasy, it's a fairy tale. Very simplistic and predictable. I read about 2 hours and stopped. I can't understand the good reviews, except that they must be kids. If you are a kid, you'll enjoy it. If you are an adult, don't waste the credit or your time.
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.
Tempo and reading style hard to listen to. I listen to about one book each week and I could not recommend his reading.
Just avoid this book. If you decide to listen to anyway, your choice, but you have been warned.
Yes, I've already read the book several time, but this audio book really helped bring the characters it to life.
Eragon, both books create a wonderful world that you can picture yourself living in.
I particularly enjoyed the scene where Thor was accepted into the legion
Morgan Rice should be really proud of this audio book, an already fantastic book was really brought to life by this performance.
The story is well written and very well performed but there is 11 books out in the series and only two in audio format I do not recommend getting this title until the rest of the series is out in audio format. The second book seems unfinished and stops at a bad point leaving the listener hanging.
I love this epic story it give me all that I need in a fantasy trilogy. the coming of age and discovery of self is magnificent. Though some actions are predictable I love it. there is not long details just action in every chapter.
Terry Brooks Shannara books.
No I don't believe I have; but I will be looking for him from no on.
Yes!! I found my self holding my breathe with hand over month and eyes wide open with fear. Self splitting laughter I like these books and am waiting with bated breathe for the last one.
I wish I could find more like this.
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 thought it was a well put together book. Very easy to listen to and this story made me question the author a lot. I find that is ok as long as it doesn't take away from the story. I would like to see the rest of the books done and I will get them as soon as they are done. Strange enough I compare this to the Vlad Taltos Series which is very very good series of books.
The ups and the downs of THORN. To be so meek Through all this crazy, to be honest and humble through it all shows the power behind him even though he can't know of it yet.
excellent for this kind of book.
I read this book awhile back but I absolutely LOVE the audiobook.
I dont give spoilers, But there are quite a few moments that will have you rooting for the main characters and at the edge of your seat for the next book.
More of a sense of being there with the characters.
All Of it!
I have already read all the books in the series and I enjoyed listening to the book in the car. However, it was a little harder to keep track of all the characters via the audio book vs reading the books. Great story line and keeps you captivated though.
Thor, who else?
This is the first of his performances I've listened to
