I read this series to pass the time and make myself sleepy before bed, that is all! The characters are weak and the writer likes to go on an on repeating obvious things. I often skip over redundant lamentations of a character. Thor loves Gwen. Thor can't handle the thought of Gwen hating him. How can Thor live with himself if Gwen thinks he's a peasant. Thor wonders if Gwen ever really cared. We get it, no need to carry on and on (as I have purposely done in this ridiculous review). He does this with all of the characters. I agree with other reviewers that Rice is just milking his lame story for all he can. Truth is, if he spent half as much time developing meaningful characters and a solid storyline as he does dragging it out repeating himself then I might actually pay more than $3 for his books. It's $3, and not even worth that but it passes the time.

I was excited to read this series, based on previous reviews and on Amazon's recommending it to me. However, I found nothing redeeming about it. The writing was awkward (does the author even know what a sneer is? She consistently used the word in appropriately.). The characters were inconsistent (Is the queen a positive character? A negative one?), and behaved inexplicably (so why is the queen against the main character? we never find out.). Plot elements were borrowed freely from other series (e.g., Band of Brothers); the weirdest borrowing was the use of obscure stories from the Old Testament. Some scenes were age-inappropriate (seriously, do you have to describe the rape in that kind of detail to an audience who are developmentally at a stage where their sexuality is developing and being shaped by their experiences?). I wanted to finish the series, just to get some closure on the plot. But halfway through the third book, I got so fed up that I did something I almost never do: I just put down the book and walked away.

Be sure to check the length of the book before buying. This 'novel' came in at 169 pages whereas the previous installment came in at 346 pages. For those that are mathematically challenged, this is less than half the length of the previous book. Additionally, there are numerous typographical errors and omissions that detract from the quality of the work.
I had forgotten about Morgan Rice for a bit. This is that same author that puts out all these crap books filled to the brim with mistakes, typos and discrepancies with the numbers, dates and names of her/his characters.
I cannot fathom how this person has made it onto any top list as an indie writer because her/his work is just that bad.
It's like a 5th grader has written this stuff and a teacher hasn't gone through it yet to give the student a big fat "F" in a bright red marker.
Ms/Mr. Rice...EDIT YOUR STUPID BOOKS. They are a horrible, disastrous mess. Learn what a semicolon is, and use them when needed. Stop screwing up references with dates and times. Learn how to spell. Save up your allowance and pay for an editor.
I got through....oh......4 pages of seeing mistakes when the light went on and I thought..."Oh yeah, this is the same person who I blasted way back when she/he would say something happened some 800 years ago, then in the next chapter it changed to 600 and so forth. Just awful, awful and more of awful. 10 minutes of my life gone and I'll never get it back. Had this been a paperback, it would have sailed clear across the room.
This is a person whose 5-star ratings either come from close friends and family who don't want to hurt her/his feelings, or people that think hundreds of typos and mistakes are "cute."
I'm tired of Amazon suggesting this person's books to me in adverts here on the site. This is not an author; this is a person that should not be writing whatsoever. Not once, has Ms/Mr. Rice read though her/his very low ratings and thought, "You know?Read more ›
This book has better flow than the first but still needs some work on copyediting. I like the direction it is headed but the time line is way to fast, Thor needs time to develop his powers and we, the readers, need time to develop along with him.
Ok, I read the first book, and though it felt very rushed and unrealistic in it's time frame I decided to give the second one a shot. I should have looked it up on here first, because I would never have bought it if I had known that it was so short. There is no grounds here for calling this a novel, there is no middle, beginning or end of anything. There is no climax, it's just half a story. The third "book" was published days after this one, and it's quite obvious to me that it's supposed to be one book. At the rate this story is moving it will take twenty of these so called books to get anywhere. Maybe when the entire series is available in one file I'll think about buying it(or just find it from someone else), but I'm done giving this author my money, it's quite obvious they have no respect for their readers, or the story(with as many issues as there were: Several times characters names were used for the wrong character, and he's where used instead of she's or vice versa). If you were even sort of on the fence after reading the first one, I'd say skip it and forget it ever happened. If you are ok with poorly thought out travel distances, wrong character names, and viewing the world from the viewpoint of every character in the book then this might be ok for you.
