The #1 Bestselling series! 

A FORGE OF VALOR is book #4 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS)! 

In A FORGE OF VALOR, Kyra slowly returns from the verge of death, healed by Kyle’s love and mysterious power. As he sacrifices for her, she regains her strength—yet not without a price. She presses Alva for the secret of her lineage, and he finally reveals all about her mother. Given a chance to quest to the source of her power, Kyra must make a crucial choice: whether to complete her training or journey to help her father, who wallows in the capital dungeon, his execution pending.

Aidan, Motley at his side, also strives to rescue his father, trapped in the perilous capital, while in the far corner of the kingdom, Merk, amazed by what he discovers in the Tower of Ur, braces himself against a massive troll invasion. His Tower surrounded, he must fight alongside his fellow Watchers, to defend his nation’s most precious relic.

Dierdre finds herself facing a full-fledged Pandesian invasion in her embattled city of Ur. As her precious city is destroyed all around her, she has to decide whether to escape or to make a final, heroic stand. Alec, meanwhile, finds himself at sea with his cryptic newfound friend, sailing to a land he’s never been, one even more mysterious than his companion. It is here that, finally, he learns of his destiny—and of the last hope for Escalon.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, A FORGE OF VALOR 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 #5 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.”

  • Overpriced

    By Spiritedconscience
    $4.99 for a 250 page book is too much
  • Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water

    By John Frosted
    It’s addicting, yet frustrating. The author continues to throw massive quantities of unnamed souls into the fire of the keeping the plot moving. Our main hero’s are still alive and kicking, each has been stomped upon and trodden on numerous times, yet some how surviving when all others around them have been run through a meat grinder. Chapters continue to end in cliff hangers, only to have some miraculous occurrence happen when they are picked up in their next chapter. Unfortunately the poor canon fodder around them continue to die noble-less, unrewarding deaths. Valor and survival is reserved for the few. Everybody else is just meat. Sickening really..
  • I'm not sure how to feel

    By StupidNicknameThingUgh7
    The overall plot of this series is great. The theme behind it, the quotes, they all have a powerful meaning behind them. However, every time I get deep into the story, the author just destroys all hope I have in this book. Kyra is by far one of the most selfish, arrogant, and impulsive characters I have read about. She doesn't listen to anyone. She's constantly almost dying because of her foolishness. Aidan is always arrogant and single-minded like his sister. They do not think. They just react, and toss it up to it being honorable and courage a when really it's just stupid. Not to mention the grammar and spelling errors or the fact that she gets some of the characters' names mixed up. She uses the same hackneyed phrases constantly. Sometimes in the same or consecutive sentences. This author has great potential, but she really needs someone to review her work before she submits it and to stop filling the pages with useless words that tell a 200-page story in 500+. With that being said, don't stop writing, but please think about your reader.
  • Best volume so far

    By Kingdom keepers rock
    So I just finished reading A Forge of Valor and must say I was very pleased with this volume. I am hooked on these books even though I often find grammatical errors, misspellings and name changes that confuse the reader, but this volume didn't have any mistakes that I can think of. It was also a riveting volume with all the new twists and turns. The fact that the two girls go off in different directions was a little sad at first but in the end it was a good move by the author. I can't wait to read the next book.
  • Wow

    By Rolni03
    I love it!! I really enjoy the way she spins the tales and how they all intertwined together. I look forward to when the next book will come out.
  • good book!

    By HighSierraHustler
    Read it in a day!
  • Edited?

    By Jvalpmed
    So many grammatical errors that I thought I was reading a rough draft. The author and/or editor, need to come up with more adjectives. Every other page someone's heart "slammed in their chest."
  • Please don't bother.

    By Sthflachk
    I'm fed up with reading books that are really just a few chapters in the whole story. I will not get sucked into buying a bunch of books again like I did for the Sorcerers Ring Series. I like the premise of both series. But feel they could be told in much less time with far better writing. The heroine in this series is not very likable. Neither her nor the other main characters are developed enough for me to care whether they live or die. These books never seem to resolve anything or even get anywhere and I have yet to finish one where I am yearning for more. I mostly feel duped and annoyed. I really like Morgan Rice but I'm beginning to question if he is writing because he wants to write a good story or to collected the money.
