Book Description

“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos

A CRY OF HONOR is book #4 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with Book #1, A QUEST OF HEROES--a FREE download, with over 900 five star reviews!

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, 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?

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A CRY OF HONOR is 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. At 85,000 words, it is the longest of all the books in the series!

NOTE: In response to reader requests, the book has now been professionally edited and copyedited, and this file version has all the typographical and grammatical errors corrected.

All 17 books in the series are now also available!

I love the story, the idea, this magical world, but every few chapters or so I find myself face-palming at the unconvincing romance, the battles that Thor always wins by using his "powers" (little yellow balls of energy? How banal), and how every time he wins, the Legion and The Silver manage to look at him with even MORE admiration than before. I feel like ideas are being reused too frequently, when they weren't extraordinary in the first place.

[SPOLER ALERT FOR ANYONE WHO HASN'T READ THE FIRST FOUR BOOKS] I found myself captivated in the first book with Thor's battles and his gaining of loyal friends. I was bored out of my mind with his love-at-first-sight (which, like many other the author's ideas, is reused over and over and over again--WHY. DOES. EVERYONE. FALL. IN. LOVE. AT. FIRST. SIGHT. WITH. AN. ATTRACTIVE. WOMAN/MAN. WHO. HAS. A. "NOBLE". AIR. ABOUT. HER/HIM?!?!? Gwen sees in Thor a noble/proud man and falls in love with him immediately. Erec falls for a pretty blonde girl when he notices that she is too noble/proud for her current position. Oh, and then Reece loves-at first sight also- the pretty nurse, who, too, has that nobility.) I enjoy romance, but this romance is superficial. I'd rather have no romance at all and have an action-packed adventure instead of this poor attempt to squeeze in adolescent feelings. (As a side note, did Thor really impregnate Gwen at, what, fourteen years of age? come onnnn, Rice, give the guy more time to shine as the hero before his offspring takes over and becomes greater than he will ever be...) We are told that they love each other, so are we expected to just leave it that and go with it? I don't FEEL that they have any true feelings for each other; there is absolutely no depth. The same can go for the bromance within the Legion.

Book 1 initially showed promise but subsequent books failed to deliver and on a spectacular scale.
I hate to write negative reviews about authors, as I know the immense effort it takes to create a story; even one as shallow as this one. To be honest though, it felt like the author handed the very briefest of outlines to a pack of 12 year old ghost writers with the instructions, "Have at it."
The grammatical errors come thick and fast; forgivable if the characters are deep and the story enticing. Unfortunately, in this case the characters were barely developed and the story felt as if any original and properly sequenced plan was thrown out in fits of spontaneous madness.
The lack of variations in vocabulary added to the progressive distaste I felt over the 4 books. There are only so many times the words, "suddenly", "perfect strike" or "at the last second" can be used before it all becomes too predictable and boring. And every time the protagonists kiss, it doesn't have to end with, "they held the kiss for a long time." Seriously, copy. Paste. Copy. Paste. Copy. Paste.
The leopard always whined.
Thor always couldn't believe what was happening, despite it having happened a multitude of times before.
Thor finally felt he belonged... Again and again and again. Isn't that the point of the word, "finally"? It indicates a point of termination.
The drama between people at times, was interesting which was in stark contrast to the battle sequences. One particular part involving a dragon which, incredibly, makes canyons hundreds of feet deep with its footprint (despite being described as having legs a thick as 50 men), left a very bad taste in my mouth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Feelings more than EVER...perhaps September 12, 2013
By autumn
Format:Kindle Edition
Thor felt more than EVER. He was finally alive to feel the feelings that make him feel how great it was to be alive and it was the best feeling ever in his life, it made him feel perhaps all was right with the world. Perhaps he never felt this way, but why? And how?

Everything is also "more than EVER" and "perhaps". But they just fought harder than EVER on the last page...Thor loved Gwen more than EVER three sentences ago?! The characters ponder the dumbest things EVER. This writer makes me feel more than EVER that perhaps nothing is right in the world. Perhaps it never was, EVER. Perhaps that's just how I feel.

Yeah. It's just that stupid.

1.0 out of 5 stars wish I hadn't bought it! December 30, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author steps into a sequence of cliches, badly chained, with a poor knowledge of the English language. He repeats himself chapter after chapter, making the reader jump page after page of nonsense to get back to more of the same.

1.0 out of 5 stars Book 4 of the series May 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an idiot I was for buying all 4 at the same time. I have never read anything so childishly written, with such trite phrases and all 4 books were the same. Each book was really just like an extended chapter of the previous book. Why am I even wasting my time reviewing this - just rubbish.

It never improved and now i believe there is a book 5 - I won't waste my time with it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Truly the worst piece of Crap I have ever read May 29, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Morgan Rice. Please. PLEASE!!! Stop writing books. The first three books in this series were bad, but just bad enough that you could plow through them and use your imagination to make them not a waste of time. This book though.... I have only not finished maybe 4 books in my life time. I read 3-4 books a week. THAT is how bad this book is. I have read probably something like 2,000 books in my life and this is one of the worst of them. If this thing were free I would tell you not to read it. There is just no talent. Every other sentence contains a hyperbole! This guy felt stronger than ever, this guy was mightier than ever, this guy was faster than ever, this guy was more powerful than ever, there are other literary techniques you hack!
The author doesn't even bother to come up with names of dozens of people killed who were "brothers" to the protagonist. Weapons appear and disappear at the will of the plot. A character is on a horse then the ground, then he is hit to the ground, the pace of events is just so messed up. A group out manned 4 to 1, against a stronger force, with better training and equal armor and they win. Not just once but this keeps happening. The protagonist has the potential to be one of the most powerful forces on the planet and spends exactly ZERO time trying to learn about the abilities. A man on foot , makes it to a town 1 days horse ride away, then they ride back to where he came from, only to find the force that left that spot , when the man left, like 10 minutes later!!! Space and time again only exist when it suits the plot! Have you no shame Rice? NO SHAME?! Gahh, it's just SOOO BADD!!!
