FREE BOOK Review: Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers Book 1) by Morgan Rice



Book Blurb

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.

Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

Kyra is no ordinary girl during her time.  She wants to be a warrior.  She is a great character who is strong and brave.  I instantly liked her.  She wants to learn everything she can.  Her father’s men support her and teach her.  Her story is the main one in the book. However, the author starts weaving in other stories.  The king of the trolls, Vesuvius, wants to rule the human world.  The reader follows his path as he strives to achieve his goal.
Then two boys are taken from their families to become guards.  Their lives are no longer their own.  The author presents this miserable life that they have to live unless they escape.  The author also introduces Merk who used to be an assassin but wants to be a watcher.  He is trying to give up the violence of his past.  He is traveling to the Tower of Ur.

These characters have not crossed paths in this book but they obviously will have an important part in the plot of the series.  I wonder how they will affect each other.  This story was interesting and I truly liked the storyline.  I give it a 4 out of 5.
