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.

    "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

    "Don't subject yourself to it"

    Clichéd, overdone, poor grammar, predictable, repetitive and boring. I kept waiting for it to improve.

    "Good story"

    Liked the story. Hero is slightly cliché but nothing wrong with a classical hero. Good narration.

    "Good Story...Abrupt Ending"

    The character and story development were good. The narration was excellent. The ending was too abrupt, designed to entice you to buy the next book. I understand the strategy for doing that but it could have been a bit more subtle and still achieve the same effect. Instead it was a bit jarring. Not the type of ending I hope to get after investing much time listening to the book. I will most likely end up getting the next book but I think the reader (listener) should be afforded a more satisfying ending.

    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.

    "Thor is a tool."

    He gets a falcon, a cub, the princess to be queen and saves the entire royal family's lives in turn with magic powers he can't control and is thrown in dungeon for it. probably argon and the current queen's bastard shame child. the end.
