Summary

In A Cry of Honor (book 4 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor has returned from The Hundred as a hardened warrior, and now he must learn what it means to battle for his homeland, to battle for life and death. The McClouds have raided deep into MacGil territory - deeper than ever before in the history of the Ring - and as Thor rides into an ambush, it will fall on his head to fend off the attack and save King's Court.

Godfrey has been poisoned by his brother by a very rare and potent poison, and his fate lies in Gwendolyn's hands, as she does whatever she can to save her brother from death.

Gareth has fallen deeper into a state of paranoia and discontent, hiring his own tribe of savages as a personal fighting force and giving them Silver Hall - ousting The Silver and causing a rift in King's Court that threatens to blow up into a civil war. He also schemes to have the fierce Nevaruns take Gwendolyn away, selling her off in marriage without her consent.

Thor's friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters, and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. Thor journeys to his hometown, and, in an epic confrontation with his father, he learns a great secret of his past, of who he is, of who his mother is - and of his destiny. With the most advanced training he's ever received from Argon, he begins to tap powers he didn't know he had, becoming more powerful each day. As his relationship with Gwen deepens, he returns to King's Court in the hopes of proposing to her - but it may already be too late.

Andronicus, armed with an informer, leads his million-man Empire army to once again attempt to breach the Canyon and crush the Ring.

And just as things seem like they can't get any worse at King's Court, the story ends with a shocking twist.

Will Godfrey survive? Will Gareth be ousted? Will King's Court split in two? Will the Empire invade? Will Gwendolyn end up with Thor? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

Not for hardcore Fantasy fans

The storyline is naive, the plots are flimsy and the writing is amateurish.
The narrator actually sounds like he's reading for children. The tempo of his voice is unrelated to the pace of events being read.
Overall, unhappy

Great read!

Am thoroughly enjoying this series. I'm ready to start on the 5th book and am tired of them yet. They are definitely worth the read. Lots of action, plot and just good! I would definitely recommend these books.

Terrible

Would you try another book from Morgan Rice and/or Wayne Farrell?

I am stunned that this woman got published. Her writing is bulky and repetitive. The characters are fairly well developed but she tends to repeat the same thing over and over again. No one laughs in her book - everyone "roars with laughter", everyone is "crestfallen" - a language variety sometimes could not hurt. There is an incredible over-description of how characters feel and an under-description of the creatures in her world (although none of them make sense - I cannot even visualize what she describes). Plus the heroes always win at everything. They never make a mistake, their aims are always true and they always make their shots. It's a big unrealistic. There is no consistency in flora or fauna which makes it difficult to visualize anything. I read the first 4 books of the Sorcerer's ring hoping for improvement and finally gave up. It's a painful read =(

On the other hand - the narrator was fabulous. He did a great job - I am just sorry that he had such poor material to work with =(

Would you ever listen to anything by Morgan Rice again?

No

Have you listened to any of Wayne Farrell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Her characters were interesting.

Any additional comments?

Stay away from Morgan Rice - ouch! I would definitely try Wayne Farrell again!

decent story but lots of inconsistencies

clearly math is not one of Morgan Rice strengths. it's like a Bee Movie you just have to listen to it. It's not horrible when you could just be so much better with a little bit of work

Good book

This is a good series but I think it would have been better...and cheaper...if all of these mini books had been combined into one book. They really can't stand alone and they all just end abruptly. I like the narrator though.
