Publisher's Summary

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!

    "Great Series"
    What made the experience of listening to A Quest of Heroes the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thor, who else?


    Have you listened to any of Wayne Farrell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first of his performances I've listened to

    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.

    More of a sense of being there with the characters.

    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%.

    "Bring on the rest of the books"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "I have to agree with Rowling "

    My 12 year old daughter and I "read" a lot of books. This was one that I enjoyed as much as she did! We can't wait to finish the books (yet don't want the story to end).

    "So much potential."

    This book made me so incredibly angry. The story line was good enough where I really wanted to keep going and find out what was going to happen next. The trouble was I hated to the main character. Thor was so naive and indecisive that I found myself screaming at the radio. He blunders from one thing to the next always managing to come out on top by some miracle. It's almost like Charlie Brown, from Peanuts fame, somehow stumbled into an adventure story was given magical powers, and you were forced to listen to his inner dialogue. I want to know what happens to him but I don't think I can sit through another.
