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.”

Good story idea, poorly written2 star

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. 25

Rise of the Dragons5 star

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. 55


Rise of the Dragons Book 15 star

Great book 55


Rise of Dragons3 star

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... 35


Fun3 star

This was a fun story. 35


So bad...2 star

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. 25


Rise of the dragons5 star

Good fantasy story telling with page turning action and great characters 55

Great5 star

Great 55


Whoa.5 star

I haven’t read a fantasy novel in a long, long time. I read this in a DAY. Less than a day, really. In 10 hours. I’m in love with it. Some of the writing isn’t the best, but the storyline itself is AMAZING 55


Slow and rocky start but good ending3 star

So not a fan of the repetitive language used or the statements made several times. You don’t need to explain the wall of fire keeping the trolls out four times. Also a little confusing at first when the POV changed. Was slow to pick up and most of the book didn’t have much progress which was disappointing. The plot is quite interesting though. And I do want to know what happens next so it is worth the read as far as that goes. Though I’m still trying to find out the writers justification for Leo as it feels like an easy out to protect the main character and her brother. All in all I am pretty neutral about this book so will be picking up the next in the series if only to find out what happens. 35


Won't read more3 star

Interesting concepts but too Disneyesque. Predictable characters and plot lines. Tons of repetition and self realization descriptions that repeat. The grammar and editing of this book are awful. Any document writing software could fix them. It's like nobody even proof read the book or suggested some deeper character development. I'm left wanting way more than this book had to offer. Probably a better book for children than adults wanting a complex fantasy saga. 35


The series needs an editor3 star

The story is entertaining but lacks imagination and insists on itself. Warning: The author falls in love with a word and then uses it obsessively..."Solar Plexus!" The book definitely needs an editor. Misspelled words, wrongfully added/misplaced words and redundant sentences and obsessive word choices. The author has a story and I applaud her for getting it out there. It would be infinitely better with an editor. I should also point out that the book was free, so as far as entertainment value is concerned, you can't lose. 35


Rise of the Dragons3 star

Good book but needs to be edited so it is a sharper read. Lots of unnecessary, boring details that do not add to the story. 35


Grammar Matters!3 star

The editor must be dyslexic (no offense). It's a good story, but so many grammatical errors are a turn off. Things like "form" instead of "from", "thier" instead of "their", come on! Maybe the Autocorrect is set in other than English. Left me unsure of buying the next book. 35

Great book!!5 star

This is actually one of the first books I've read from from to finish bc it was just a great book that caught my attention 55

Ginger Chouchou

Too similar to other stories, no original ideas or storytelling3 star

I was disappointed in this book. The story seems used up already, didn't we recently finish The Book of Deacon series? 35

Fantastic author disappointed with this series.2 star

First off let me say that this is a honest review and I was in no way swayed to write a good or bad review. That being said I was disappointed to notice within the first couple chapters that this story line followed the sorcerer's ring story line. If that was going to be done why not write a series about Thor and Gwen's son. Very disappointed by this. Would have given 3 stars if it wasn't as repetitive and had as many grammatical mistakes. Morgan Rice is still my favorite writer but instead of trying to spit out another series of the same caliber as the sorcerer's ring why not finish the arena series. 25


Predictable and simplistic1 star

The author is obsessed with romanticized notions of honor and revenge, but uses prose like a hammer… monotonous and simple. 15
