Publisher's Summary

In A Cry of Honor (book 4 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor has returned from The Hundred as a hardened warrior, and now he must learn what it means to battle for his homeland, to battle for life and death. The McClouds have raided deep into MacGil territory - deeper than ever before in the history of the Ring - and as Thor rides into an ambush, it will fall on his head to fend off the attack and save King's Court.

Godfrey has been poisoned by his brother by a very rare and potent poison, and his fate lies in Gwendolyn's hands, as she does whatever she can to save her brother from death.

Gareth has fallen deeper into a state of paranoia and discontent, hiring his own tribe of savages as a personal fighting force and giving them Silver Hall - ousting The Silver and causing a rift in King's Court that threatens to blow up into a civil war. He also schemes to have the fierce Nevaruns take Gwendolyn away, selling her off in marriage without her consent.

Thor's friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters, and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. Thor journeys to his hometown, and, in an epic confrontation with his father, he learns a great secret of his past, of who he is, of who his mother is - and of his destiny. With the most advanced training he's ever received from Argon, he begins to tap powers he didn't know he had, becoming more powerful each day. As his relationship with Gwen deepens, he returns to King's Court in the hopes of proposing to her - but it may already be too late.

Andronicus, armed with an informer, leads his million-man Empire army to once again attempt to breach the Canyon and crush the Ring.

And just as things seem like they can't get any worse at King's Court, the story ends with a shocking twist.

Will Godfrey survive? Will Gareth be ousted? Will King's Court split in two? Will the Empire invade? Will Gwendolyn end up with Thor? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

Great read!

Am thoroughly enjoying this series. I'm ready to start on the 5th book and am tired of them yet. They are definitely worth the read. Lots of action, plot and just good! I would definitely recommend these books.

Terrible

Would you try another book from Morgan Rice and/or Wayne Farrell?

I am stunned that this woman got published. Her writing is bulky and repetitive. The characters are fairly well developed but she tends to repeat the same thing over and over again. No one laughs in her book - everyone "roars with laughter", everyone is "crestfallen" - a language variety sometimes could not hurt. There is an incredible over-description of how characters feel and an under-description of the creatures in her world (although none of them make sense - I cannot even visualize what she describes). Plus the heroes always win at everything. They never make a mistake, their aims are always true and they always make their shots. It's a big unrealistic. There is no consistency in flora or fauna which makes it difficult to visualize anything. I read the first 4 books of the Sorcerer's ring hoping for improvement and finally gave up. It's a painful read =(

On the other hand - the narrator was fabulous. He did a great job - I am just sorry that he had such poor material to work with =(

Would you ever listen to anything by Morgan Rice again?

No

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

No

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Her characters were interesting.

Any additional comments?

Stay away from Morgan Rice - ouch! I would definitely try Wayne Farrell again!

So, so bad.

"They were eviscerated until all that was left was ash." /facepalm

I can't even conjure up the appropriate words to describe how utterly bad these books are.

Too much Kissing

The narrator was okay, but the narrative was good. I just don't like how much kissing there was.

Good story, not well written

The overall story is interesting but the writing is too sappy. Some of the same phrases are overused. The predictability of this book is annoying at times.

An entertaining series, but some of the character interplay needs to move along just a bit quicker.

Good story, poorly written.

I knew exactly which words the author was going to use to describe actions or feelings. Author needs to pull out a thesaurus and use some different verbs. Other than that the story pulls you in and leaves you wanting more. The voice acting was adequate enough to not hate it.

Losing steam

This series had a good go but it's losing steam at the end of this book.

Not for hardcore Fantasy fans

The storyline is naive, the plots are flimsy and the writing is amateurish.
The narrator actually sounds like he's reading for children. The tempo of his voice is unrelated to the pace of events being read.
Overall, unhappy

thesaurus wanted and a great world created

I still wish the author had a thesaurus, and didn't use the same clichés, but I love the world she has created

Book 4 is Great

The continuing story of Gwendoline, Lewanda, Reece , Gerard and their evil brother Gareth. Thor is also continuing his journey of discovering his real mother and why he is able to do magic.
All the different kings that also have their sights on their kingdom.
This is even more vicious than all the other books, but I think it is required violence too show how evil some of the enemies can be as apposed to the goodness of the main characters.
Another great book in the series
