The #1 Bestseller!

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS—Book 1).

Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is.

Just as Kyra is coming of age, the local lord comes to take her away. Her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she quests on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon—and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever.

15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the paranormal source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping, romantic saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, action, adventure, destiny, sorcery, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of ambition and betrayal. It is fantasy at its finest, inviting us into a world that will live with us forever, one that will appeal to all ages and genders.

Book #2 in KINGS AND SORCERERS is also now available!

“RISE OF THE DRAGONS succeeds—right from the start…. A superior fantasy…It begins, as it should, with one protagonist's struggles and moves neatly into a wider circle of knights, dragons, magic and monsters, and destiny.…All the trappings of high fantasy are here, from soldiers and battles to confrontations with self….A recommended winner for any who enjoy epic fantasy writing fueled by powerful, believable young adult protagonists.”

    I was enjoying this until it devolved into moralistic preaching.

    I the time that I was reading this book I was grounded. My mother said that I had to read a book and write a whole book report on it. I was looking through the free books and I saw the title and image of the book and I was interested. I picked this book and with an attitude I told my mom that I picked a book, she said “you better get to reading”. I was so mad but once I finished the first chapter I was glued to the book I had to finish it I told my self I was going to stop reading but I just kept on wanting to find out what happened next. This book was so interesting and I loved it. If you like fantasy then this is the book for you. The only problem I think is that the book was mainly about the girl and the dragons connection but that scene in the book didn’t come up until the very end. That’s not enough to put a star down though that’s how good this story is!!!
  • Good story idea, poorly written

    The story line is interesting, however, there are so many typos and errors that distract readers. Not including who/what the heroine is was a mistake, just a ploy to sell the next book. Sorry, not going there.

    A strong girl with plenty warrior valor. I can’t wait to read the second installment of Mr. Price’s series. It is the first book I read from this author and absolutely not the last. Freedom is worth dying for! I have dozens of similar stories about dragons and heroes, but the characters in this one are all memorable and worth knowing intimately.

    Good plot and character development. Very bad grammar and too repetitive with the use of same phrases over and over “for the first time” “heart slammed in chest” etc...
  • Fun

    Maybe someone should let George RR know that this hack completely ripped off his books. Rice’s writing may be the worst I’ve ever read. It’s like all Rice’s books were written by a high school student. The grammar and spelling are atrocious. The writing is painfully repetitive. No surprise that none were ever published on paper. How one author can keep pumping out so much garbage is mind blowing.
