A March of Kings takes us one step further on Thor's epic journey into manhood, as he begins to realize more about who he is and what his powers are, and as he embarks to become a warrior.
After he escapes from the dungeon, Thor is horrified to learn of another assassination attempt on King MacGil. When MacGil dies, the kingdom is set into turmoil. As everyone vies for the throne, King's Court is rifer than ever with its family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence, and betrayal. An heir must be chosen from among the children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, will have a chance to be wielded by someone new. But all this might be upended: The murder weapon is recovered, and the noose tightens on finding the assassin. Simultaneously, the MacGils face a new threat from the McClouds, who are set to attack again from within the Ring.
Thor fights to win back Gwendolyn's love, but there may not be time: He is told to pack up, to prepare with his brothers-in-arms for The Hundred, a hundred grueling days of hell that all Legion members must survive. The Legion will have to cross the Canyon, beyond the protection of the Ring, into the Wilds, and set sail across the Tartuvian Sea for the Isle of Mist, said to be patrolled by a dragon, for their initiation into manhood.
Will they make it back? Will the Ring survive in their absence? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

"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)
I enjoy the criminal law, reading 19th century literature, and epic and contemporary fantasy too.
Weak characters, failing strory, and not much imagination put into this book. Look out for the frightful lack of consistency within the story... Quite Monotonous.
I found the story ok but the use of five times too many wards and the monotony of the narrator really boring if this is what the author has to do to pad out his books then I will not be purchasing any more
"The story was unfinished"
While the story is good and well written, it 's too short and the ending left one hanging. I actually went back to make sure I'd downloaded the whole thing. So in the end it was disappointing, all I could think was WHAT?
Because of this it was only worth 1/2 a credit.
"still suffers from the lack of a good thesaurus"
some of the author's favorite words; hardly, ever, never and it seems that everyone's heart is always pounding. I'm hoping he took a 5 year sabbatical and pursued a literature course catalog at a reputable College before he wrote the third in the series as the storyline shows great promise.
I kept waiting for these books to get better. Unfortunately they don't. These plot has alot going on and the description seems promising. But after the 1239812390128390238290382 acceptance of death on many different characters' behalves I can not go on. The author picks one phrase and uses it over and over again. The narrator speaks very slowly but his voice is okay. Not worth it.
"Great book 2 - Best sci/fi/fantasy series ever!!!"
This book picks up right where book 1 left off. If you liked book 1, you have to listen to this one. The story just keeps on Rock'n. So much happens in this book. It's so captivating and entertaining. It's just as good as the first book. This is the best series ever! It's a 10 book series. I hope audible produces audio books for the other 8 books soon.
Wayne Farrell is freak'n awesome! I love his reading of "A Quest of Heros", the first book in the Sorcerer's Ring series. He does such a good job. He's truly talented.
This series is the best I have found in a long time. please get the next one out ASAP!!!
I am a ceramic sculptor. I first listened to this book more than a year ago and LOVED listening to Thor's adventures while I was sculpting in the studio. it was through this passive listening that I actually discovered I could recount all major events and tell my husband about it. Normally, no big deal, right? Well, I am also a disabled OIF Veteran that has some significant cognitive decline in short term memory retention and being able to translate what I read and be able to summarize or even understand it. It was then that I tried audio books, and this series. When I attempt the same feat through active listening, I can't for some reason. I was disappointed when I got to the end of book 5 in this series and the rest of the books were not on audible. I've recently discovered that more of the series is on audio so I'm starting the series over and it's just as good the 2nd time around. It is my trusted studio companion.
"Don't do it!!"
I stupidly assumed this story had to get better. it didn't. I bought the whole series, so I feel obliged to keep listening. it's becoming self-torture at this point.
so far I find the series of books entertaining. I don't think they're extremely well-written, and sometimes I cringe at the language used or the words used in a certain area, or the repetition, or any other number of things that just don't sit well with me. but, as I noted above, it is entertaining and overall the story is pretty good. Good character development and because this takes place over so many books you really can get into the details. I will definitely finish off the series.
many times there were many times during the performance that a bunch of the first words would be cut off. instead of saying she the audio would come out and make it sound like he or the first word or even the first sound of the main character's name would be cut off.
"Not worth it"
Same as the previous book in this series. The audio, like all the books in this series is choppy. Was not happy even though I kept getting the next book book and the next...till I got fed up and pissed that I bought them or used credits for them
