The #1 Bestselling series! 

THE WEIGHT OF HONOR is book #3 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS)! 

In THE WEIGHT OF HONOR, Kyra finally meets her cryptic uncle, and is shocked to discover he is not the man she expected. She embarks on a period of training which will test her stamina and her frustration, as she soon encounters the limits of her power. Unable to summon her dragon, unable to search deep within, and feeling an urgency to help in her father’s wars, Kyra doubts if she will ever become the warrior she thought she was. And when she meets a mysterious boy, more powerful than her, deep in the forest, she wonders what her future really has in store for her.

Duncan must descend the peaks of Kos with his new army and, vastly outnumbered, launch a risky invasion on the capital. If he wins, waiting behind its ancient walls, he knows, will be the old king and his nest of nobles and aristocrats, all with their own agendas, all of them as quick to betray as they are to embrace. Unifying Escalon may, indeed, be harder than freeing it.

Alec, in Ur, must tap his unique skills in the forge to aid the resistance if they have any chance of defending against the looming Pandesian invasion. He is awestruck when he encounters Dierdre, the strongest girl he has ever meet. The time she has a chance to make a stand against Pandesia, and as she bravely faces off, she who wonders if her father and his men will have her back this time.

Merk finally enters the tower of Ur, and is stunned by what he discovers. Initiated into its strange codes and rules, he meets his fellow Watchers, the toughest warriors he has ever encountered, and he finds that earning their respect will not be easy. With an invasion looming, they must all prepare the tower; yet even all its secret passageways may not keep them safe from the betrayal lurking from within.

Vesuvius leads his Troll nation across a vulnerable Escalon, devastating the land, while Theos, enraged at what becomes of his son, is on a rampage himself, and will not stop until all of Escalon is aflame.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, THE WEIGHT OF HONOR 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, 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 #4 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon. 

 “If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. 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 (regarding Rise of the Dragons)

“[The novel] 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.”
--Midwest Book Review, D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer (regarding Rise of the Dragons)

“A plot-driven novel that’s easy to read in a weekend…A good start to a promising series.”

  • Typos, typos, typos

    By Trishbunni
    Good book, but sooo many typos! Did this even go through an editor? Seems to be getting worse as the books go on, just finished this, the 3rd in the series and am debating on even continuing to the end
  • How bad can it get Yoda?

    By John Frosted
    The author continues with her goal of killing everyone off, for nothing other than moving the plot along. For only in great misery comes great strength, or some such balderdash Doesn’t explain the goals of the bad guys other than saying they want to kill everything. Even our Heroes are at their end at the concluding chapter of this book, being stabbed, betrayed, facing impossible odds, or otherwise driven to despair. Cliff hangers to the max...
  • Where to start...

    By Skylar2121
    I loved the last two books but there are many points of views to keep up with, and they are just getting boring.
  • Constructive Criticism

    By March9191
    Your books are well written. The only problem I have is that every page, every chapter, is the same. The group or the person is always in great peril about to die and than Leo saves the day for Kyra, or in the case of her father he always finds a way through because of his amazing character or stroke of luck after stumbling into a worsening scenario. It's repetitive and it gets boring. It would be much better to introduce character building like there was in book 2 with Merk and the boys from the flames(that's how much I remember them) internal conflict with how kyra feels about the pan designs would do wonders to the plot elements, and if the pandesians have armies of slaves, what do they think of themselves? Also, you should add a little bit more about the trolls in future, in the event of a genius villain it greatly builds plot if you follow him and allude to different sets of plans that he could put under way to endanger the group.
  • Great story but...

    By iHorizen
    Why do the prices get higher for each book with less pages? 4.99 for 250 pages is just bull and overpriced. Stop being greedy and lower it to at least correspond to the number of pages. Like the book, hate the price.
  • Interesting plot, slow pace, shallow characters

    By Grumpycakes
    I read the first three and I won't be buying the rest only due to the shallow characters and the plot going from we can win anything no matter what to we are dumb and lose it all because reasons. I just skimmed the chapters in this book and I don't feel like I missed anything. The female lead is an idiot, there is living with honor and then there is being intelligent and strategic. This is too bad because I was hoping as the story progressed it would improve but it got worse.
  • Rise of the Valient

    By Onealpat
    A very captivating book!
  • Engaging enough for me to finish the series, but….

    By J___square
    Morgan Rice, listen to me, please, please,please, hire an editor.
  • Editor

    By EVchampion
    The story is good. The plot is enthralling. But there are numerous mistakes, forgotten conjunctions, incorrect names, and contradictions. You need an editor. Period. You cannot write a great story by yourself, you need another pair of eyes to review your text before publishing your books. I would gladly pay more money for each book if the mistakes were fixed.
  • Great read

    By Dreadhead-original
    Great story line. Lots of new plots unfolding into what could be a long series. Only bad part was I read it too fast and now have to wait for more! Lots of cliff hangers
