Publisher's summary

In A Rite of Swords (book 7 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor grapples with his legacy, battling to come to terms with who his father is, whether to reveal his secret, and what action he must take. Back home in the Ring, with Mycoples by his side and the Destiny Sword in hand, Thor is determined to wreak vengeance on Andronicus' army and liberate his homeland - and to finally propose to Gwendolyn. But he comes to learn that there are forces even greater than he that might just stand in his way.

Gwendolyn returns and strives to become the ruler she is destined to be, using her wisdom to unite the disparate forces and drive out Andronicus for good. Reunited with Thor and her brothers, she is grateful for a lull in the violence and for the chance to celebrate their freedom. But things change quickly - too quickly - and before she knows it, her life is thrown upside down again. Her elder sister, Luanda, caught in a fierce rivalry with her, is determined to wrest power while King MacGil's brother arrives with his own army to gain control of the throne. With spies and assassins on all sides, Gwendolyn, embattled, learns that being queen is not as safe as she thought.

Reece's love with Selese finally has a chance to flourish, yet at the same time his old love appears, and he finds himself torn. But idle times are soon overcome by battle, and Reece, Elden, O'Connor, Conven, Kendrick, Erec, and even Godfrey must face and overcome adversity together if they are to survive. Their battles take them to all corners of the Ring, as it becomes a race against time to oust Andronicus and save themselves from complete destruction. As powerful, unexpected forces battle for control of the Ring, Gwen realizes she must do whatever it takes to find Argon and bring him back.

In a final, shocking twist, Thor learns that while his powers are supreme, he also has a hidden weakness - one that may just bring his final downfall.

drag on

for as many books in this series, they all are 7 hours long. to me just not worth a credit could have put books together, for a credit more hours.

kinda repetitive

these books should have been combined into either 1 long book or a trilogy. they are too short to warrant using a credit on 18 different books.

It just goes on and on and on

Seven books and almost zero resolutions. This series is obviously being stretched out for the sake of more books and by this point you just want it to end.

Also the narrator if awful. Why must you make a 16 year old girl sound like a retired old man that smokes 2 packs a day.

I’m embarrassed I went this far

No continuity on timeline or characters. Constant errors throughout. Constantly contradicts itself example first “dozen” can’t budge sword and takes 20 people to move sword, then a couple chapters later 4 can lift it up onto railing then next paragraph 7 can’t hold it from falling over edge. Group looks out over an endless dessert that goes to the edges of the earth, then few hours later they are across. One group makes a hard days ride gets injured and then rescued within a couple hours from same location. Also the authors use of a “dozen” apparently ranges from 2 to 30 or their basic math skills don’t work.

Greatness...Part 7

I can't get over it. It's amazing! I did notice this time that there are a lot of the same phrases that are used to explain scenarios. for example, "Thor felt stronger than he'd ever felt before..." after I think I heard it 2xs in the same battle I got to thinking...either word choice is not there...or this kid really is feeling averything for the first time!

won't stop me from reading it again next year!
