„Eine action-geladene Fantasy-Geschichte, die den Fans von Morgan Rices vorherigen Büchern und den Liebhabe von Büchern wie THE INHERITANCE CYCLE von Christopher Paolini gefallen dürfte… Fans von Fantasy-Geschichten für junge Erwachsene werden dieses jüngste Werk von Rice verschlingen und um mehr betteln.“ --The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (über Rise of the Dragons) Die #1 Bestseller Serie! AUFSTAND DER TAPFEREN ist Buch #2 in Morgan Rices epischer Bestseller-Fantasy Serie VON KÖNIGEN UND DRACHEN (die mit AUFSTAND DER DRACHEN beginnt, einem kostenlosen Download)! Nach dem Angriff des Drachen wird Kyra auf eine dringende Mission geschickt: Escalon zu durchqueren und ihren Onkel im mysteriösen Turm von Ur aufzusuchen. Die Zeit ist für Sie gekommen, zu erfahren, wer sie ist, wer ihre Mutter ist und zu trainieren, um ihre besonderen Kräfte zu erschließen. Für ein einsames Mädchen ist es eine Mission voller Gefahren, denn Escalon ist voller gefährlicher Kreaturen und Männer – eine, die all ihre Stärke fordern wird, um zu überleben. Ihr Vater, Duncan, muss seine Männer nach Süden führen, nach Esephus, der großen Stadt am Wasser, um zu versuchen, seine Landsleute aus dem eisernen Griff Pandesias zu befreien. Wenn er damit Erfolg hat, wird er zum gefährlichen Lake of Ire und zu den eisigen Gipfeln von Kos weiterziehen müssen, wo die härtesten Krieger Escalons leben, Männer, die er braucht, wenn er auch nur den Hauch einer Chance haben will, die Hauptstadt zu erobern. Alex flieht mit Marco von den Flammen und gelangt auf der Flucht durch den Wald der Dornen, wo sie von exotischen Biestern gejagt werden. Es ist eine qualvolle Wanderung durch die Nacht auf dem Weg in sein Heimatdorf, wo er hofft, wieder mit seiner Familie vereint zu werden. Als er ankommt, ist er jedoch geschockt über das, was er vorfindet. Trotz besseren Wissens kehrt Merk um, um dem Mädchen zu helfen und wird zum ersten Mal in seinem Leben in die Angelegenheiten einer Fremden hineingezogen. Doch er gibt seine Reise zum Turm von Ur nicht auf und leidet innerliche Qualen, als er erkennen muss, dass der Turm nicht das ist, was er erwartet hat. Vesuvius treibt während der unterirdischen Mission der Trolle den Riesen an, im Versucht, die Flammen zu umgehen, während Theos seine eigene Aufgabe in Escalon hat. Mit seiner starken Atmosphäre und komplexen Charakteren ist AUFSTAND DER TAPEREN eine mitreißende Saga von Rittern und Kriegern, von Königen und Lords, von Ehre und Heldenmut, Magie, Schicksal, Monstern und Drachen. Es ist eine Geschichte von Liebe und gebrochenen Herzen, von Täuschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat. Die Geschichte ist Fantasy vom Feinsten, die uns in eine Welt einlädt, die in uns auf ewig weiterleben und allen Altersgruppen und Geschlechtern zusagen wird. BUCH #3 in VON KÖNIGEN UND ZAUBERERN erscheint in Kürze. “[ DER AUFSTAND DER DRACHEN] ist eine handlungsgetriebene Novelle, die leicht an einem Wochenende zu lesen ist… Ein guter Start für eine vielversprechende Serie.” --San Francisco Book Review

"Eine atemberaubende neue epische Fantasy-Serie. Morgan Rice hat es wieder einmal geschafft! Diese magische Saga erinnert an das Beste von J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini und J.R.R. Tolkien. Ich konnte es nicht aus der Hand legen!" --Allegra Skye, Bestseller-Autor von SAVED Nach einigen Nr. 1-Bestsellern pr sentiert Morgan Rice das Deb t einer bezaubernden neuen Fantasy-Serie. QUESTE F R HELDEN (Band 1 im RING DER ZAUBEREI) ist die epische Geschichte vom Erwachsenwerden eines besonderen Jungen, einem 14-j hrigen aus einem kleinen Dorf am Rande des K nigreichs des Rings. Als der j ngste von vier Br dern, am wenigsten vom Vater geliebt, von seinen Br dern gehasst, sp rt Thorgrin, dass er anders ist als die anderen. Er tr umt davon, ein gro er Krieger zu werden, sich des K nigs Mannen anzuschlie en und den Ring vor den Horden der Kreaturen auf der anderen Seite des Canyon zu besch tzen. Als er das Kriegeralter erreicht und sein Vater es ihm nicht erlaubt, der Legion des K nigs beizutreten, akzeptiert er kein Nein: er reist auf eigene Faust los, fest entschlossen, sich seinen Weg nach K nigshof zu bahnen und ernstgenommen zu werden. Doch K nigshof ist voll von seinen eigenen Familiendramen und Machtk mpfen, von Ehrgeiz, Eifersucht, Gewalt und Verrat. K nig MacGil muss sich unter seinen Kindern f r einen Nachfolger entscheiden, und das uralte Schicksalsschwert, die Quelle all ihrer Macht, wartet weiterhin unber hrt auf die Ankunft des Auserw hlten. Thorgrin kommt als Au enseiter an und k mpft darum, akzeptiert zu werden und zur Legion des K nigs zu geh ren. Thorgrin entdeckt, dass er mysteri se Kr fte besitzt, die er nicht versteht; dass er eine besondere Gabe hat, und ein besonderes Schicksal. Er verliebt sich aussichtslos in die Tochter des K nigs, und w hrend ihre verbotene Romanze erbl ht, muss er erfahren, dass er m chtige Rivalen hat. W hrend er sich bem ht, seine Kr fte zu begreifen, nimmt ihn der Zauberer des K nigs unter die Fittiche und erz hlt ihm von seiner Mutter, die er nie kannte, in einem fernen Land hinter dem Canyon, das sogar weit hinter dem Land der Drachen liegt. Bevor Thorgrin ausziehen und Krieger werden kann, wie es sein Herzenswunsch ist, muss er seine Ausbildung abschlie en. Doch dies k nnte ein vorschnelles Ende finden, als er sich im Mittelpunkt k niglicher Intrigen und Gegenintrigen wiederfindet, die seine Liebe bedrohen und ihn zerst ren k nnten--und mit ihm das gesamte K nigreich. Mit seinen fein ausgearbeiteten Welten und Charakteren ist QUESTE DER HELDEN eine epische Saga von Freundschaft und Liebe, von Rivalen und Verehrern, von Rittern und Drachen, von Intrigen und politischen Machenschaften, vom Erwachsenwerden, von gebrochenen Herzen, von T uschung, Ehrgeiz und Verrat. Es ist eine Geschichte von Ehre und Mut, von Schicksal und Bestimmung, von Zauberei.

“If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. In RISE OF THE DRAGONS Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos 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. When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out 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 magical 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 saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, 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.

An diesem gnadenlosen Ort, Heimat der höchsten Elite an Kriegern auf der Welt, werden Thors Kräfte und Fertigkeiten während seiner Ausbildung noch vertieft. Auch seine Freundschaften vertiefen sich, während sie zusammen Widrigkeiten trotzen, die weit über ihre Vorstellungskraft hinausgehen. Doch während sie sich unvorstellbaren Monstern gegenüber sehen, wandeln sich die Hundert schnell von einer Trainingsübung in eine Angelegenheit von Leben und Tod. Nicht alle werden überleben. Unterwegs werden Thors Träume, zusammen mit seinen rätselhaften Begegnungen mit Argon, ihn weiterhin plagen—ihn dazu drängen, mehr darüber zu erfahren, wer er ist; wer seine Mutter ist; und was die Quelle seiner Kräfte ist. Was ist sein Schicksal? Zuhause im Ring wird alles immer schlimmer. Während Kendrick eingekerkert wird, findet Gwendolyn sich damit betraut, ihn zu retten—den Ring zu retten, indem sie ihren Bruder Gareth stürtzt. Gemeinsam mit ihrem Bruder Godfrey jagt sie nach Hinweisen zum Mörder ihres Vaters, und unterwegs kommen sich die beiden viel näher, verbunden in ihrer Aufgabe. Doch Gwendolyn findet sich in tödlicher Gefahr wieder, als sie zu tief nachbohrt, und es kann sein, dass die Sache ihr über den Kopf wächst. Gareth versucht, das Schicksalsschwert zu ziehen, und erfährt, wie es ist, König zu sein, berauscht vom Missbrauch seiner Macht. Er regiert unbarmherzig und wird zunehmends paranoider. Während sich die Schlinge um den Mörder des Königs enger zieht, wagen sich die Angriffe der McClouds immer tiefer in den Ring vor, und Königshof gerät in eine immer heikler werdende Lage. Gwendolyn sehnt sich nach Thors Rückkehr; danach, mit ihm zusammen zu sein, damit ihre Liebe erblühen kann. Doch mit den mächtigen Kräften, die sich zwischen sie stellen, ist es fraglich, ob diese Chance je kommen wird. Wird Thor die Hundert überleben? Wird Königshof zusammenbrechen? Wird MacGils Mörder aufgespürt werden? Wird Gwendolyn mit Thor zusammenkommen? Und wird Thor endlich das Geheimnis seines Schicksals lüften?

In ANGRIFF DER TAPFERKEIT (Buch #6 aus dem Ring der Zauberei) verfolgt Thor seine Mission, das gestohlene Schwert des Schicksals zurückzubringen um den Ring zu retten, weiter. Sie führt ihn immer Tiefer in das Reich des Empire. Als er und seine Freunde unerwartet eine Tragödie erleben und sie ein Mitglied ihrer Gruppe verlieren, schweißt sie das enger zusammen als je zuvor. Sie erkennen, dass sie nur gemeinsam die Widrigkeiten, die sich ihnen in den Weg stellen, überwinden können. Ihre Reise führt sie in neue und exotische Gegenden wie die Salt Fields, den Großen Tunnel, die Feuerberge wo sie sich an jeder Biegung des Weges neuen Monstern stellen müssen. Thors gelingt es, seine Fähigkeiten auszubauen, indem er sich seinem bisher am meisten fortgeschrittenen Training unterzieht, und er wird auf viel gewaltigere Kräfte als bisher zurückgreifen müssen, wenn er überleben möchte. Endlich finden sie heraus, wo das Schwert hingebracht wurde und erfahren dass sie, um es zurückzuholen, in das sagenumwobene Land der Drachen vordringen müssen. Einen Ort, den man selbst im Empire fürchtet. Zu Hause im Ring erholt sich Gwendolyn langsam und kämpft nach dem Angriff auf sie mit einer tiefen Depression. Kendrick und die anderen schwören, für ihre Ehre zu kämpfen, auch wenn die Chancen gegen sie stehen. Es folgt die größte Schlacht in der Geschichte des Rings und sie kämpfen, um Silesia zu befreien und Andronicus zu besiegen. In der Zwischenzeit schleicht sich Godfrey verkleidet hinter die feindlichen Linien und lernt auf seine ganz eigene Art und Weise, was es heißt, ein Krieger zu sein. Gareth hat irgendwie geschafft zu überleben. Er musste all seine Gerissenheit aufbringen um sich der Gefangennahme durch Andronicus zu entziehen. Währenddessen kämpft Erec um sein Leben, für die Rettung Savarias vor der Invasion von Andronicus‘ Armee – und für die Liebe seines Lebens, Alistair. Argon zahlt einen hohen Preis für seine Einmischung in die Angelegenheiten der Menschen. Und Gwendolyn muss entscheiden, ob sie ihr Leben aufgeben, oder sich in den Tower of Refuge für ein abgeschiedenes Leben zurückziehen will. Doch nicht bevor Thor in einer schockierenden Wendung erfährt, wer sein wirklicher Vater ist. Werden Thor und die anderen ihre Mission überleben? Werden sie das Schwert des Schicksals finden? Wird der Ring Andronicus‘ Invasion überleben? Was wird aus Gwendolyn, Kendrick und Erec? Und wer ist Thors wirklicher Vater?

“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 Here is episode #1 in the graphic novel adaptation of the #1 Bestselling epic fantasy novel A QUEST OF HEROES, with over 900 five star reviews! From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes the debut of a dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously. But King’s Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King’s Legion. Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king’s daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king’s sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons. Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down—and the entire kingdom with him. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES 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. “[An] entertaining epic fantasy.” —Kirkus Reviews “The beginnings of something remarkable are there.” --San Francisco Book Review “A spirited fantasy ….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.” --Midwest Book Review
