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.

    "I love the coming of age and quest fantasy books"
    Where does A Quest of Heroes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What other book might you compare A Quest of Heroes to and why?

    Terry Brooks Shannara books.


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

    No I don't believe I have; but I will be looking for him from no on.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I could find more like this.

    Story
    "Excellent Narrator"
    Where does A Quest of Heroes rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    In the middle.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Morgan Rice? Why or why not?

    Yes. Although I do find that "too much" happens in "too short" a time, nevertheless there was enough to make it interesting, and the $1.99 price for the audiobook (because already owning the Kindle version free) was worth it.


    What does Wayne Farrell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I was skeptical about this audiobook, until I heard Wayne Farrell. He was well chosen. Does a solid job. And I was impressed with how well he could differentiate characters without resorting to any overdramatics.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If the activity allowed it, perhaps.


    Any additional comments?

    The marketing plan of offering a free Book #1 on Kindle, and then a $1.99 upgrade to Audiobook on Audible was a smart choice.

    "ugh! I wanted this story over"

    I wanted this story to end. I struggled to get through it. Thor was down sandwiches short a basket. the characters had no depth; the storyline had no reason. I gave it 3stars because it was a book, just not a good one.

    "Mediocre writing for a story with more potential"

    Thor is almost a compelling character except for his extremely tropic hits of being a hero. While every story always has some tropes, this one hits them all and make the story extremely predictable. Yet at the same time the author does not provide information for world building until after the turn of events which hinge upon how that world operates. As a quick example, the falcon being the symbol of the kingdom is not mentioned until the hero Thor received a falcon as a gift. A better writing strategy is to build up the significance so you feel more enthusiastic about Thors accomplishments. Along with this poor writing then comes poor choices of story development. The character should not be gifted certain amenities and honors so quickly after pulling off a save that is not really spectacular. Very little justification for character choices, and poor writing relying heavily upon typical high fantasy language to carry any interest in the story.

    Story
    "please get a thesaurus!"

    I like the story in general. It's not terribly original, but entertaining.
    unfortunately, the author uses several phrases so often, it started to really get on my nerves. "he could hardly believe .." in particular comes to mind.
    I also felt the main character was really a whiny, self involved baby fairly frequently. he seemed to take personal offense at everything, always assuming he was being slighted or being treated unfairly, which honestly gets a bit tiresome.
    I did like some of the imagery, and sometimes could get a good picture in my head of what was being described
    not a bad book, but not a great one either
