Publisher's Summary

The #1 Bestselling 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. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. 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.

    The entire story evolves fast and has plenty of action.

    Thor is a great lead character.

    I listened to this book while driving to and from work (45min. drive) I'd find myself not wanting to get out of the car when I got to work.

    "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

    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 read this book awhile back but I absolutely LOVE the audiobook.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Quest of Heroes?

    More of a sense of being there with the characters.

    Story
    "Fun plot but needs better editing"

    Multiple redundant mentions of the same facts, overuse of common phrases (he couldn't believe...), and all the good guys are perfect all the time which strains credulity.
    This book makes me feel like a college girl being paired with a fourteen year old for a dance. I am two step ahead of the author at all times.
    The narrator has an annoying lilt in his voice that makes it sound as if he doesn't care at all about plot or characters. The accent is cool but only for about five minutes.
    The story itself is solid and has a great helping of all the favorite fantasy fiction elements. I just wish the author would refine the narrative so it doesn't distract from the plot.

    "Abrupt ending"

    I loved the story so far and I know there are many more books in the series but I can't help but be disappointed at the abrupt ending. For that reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5. I do look forward to the next book though.
