The Sorcerers Ring Books
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

Ok i'll be the first to admit, when i saw this book on the kindle store i ignored it, i ignored it for a long time. Probably in excess of a month, but eventually i decided to give it a try. I am glad i did.

The book is fucking excellent, it is up there with the best, J.K Rowling, George R Martin and Tolkien.

This has everything, the underdog, love, hate, treachery, success.

It grabs you and just doesnt let you go, its fast paced and at every turn their is a new twist.

The author builds a group of characters up and lets you bond with them, but at any time some of the main people can just vanish and be killed off.

The landscape it creates is mesemrizing, the people, the towns, the creatures, each has its own part to play in making the world inside the book your own.

Fully recommend and gets another 4/5 stars from me.
