About the author

It's said I was launched into space from birth and I haven't been back to Earth since.

There might be some truth in that.

As a reader I love science fiction with great plots, interesting characters, exotic locales, all accompanied by a sense of wonder with optimistic endings. As a writer, I love the same.

 A new life in Alaska, a massive aurora, spaceship hidden under the ice and snow…
A haunted lodge and lurking aliens?
An ominous singing voice only Zach and Sasha can hear...

Hawk and Zach Callahan are on the adventure of a lifetime, one that could affect everyone on Earth.

Welcome to Salmon Run, Alaska! A place of wild animals, wild lands, and wild inhabitants...oh, and native legends come alive and an interplanetary alien conflict at their backdoor. A fun contemporary science fiction series for teens, young adults, and adults of all ages.

This collection of the first three Salmon Run books follows the Callahans, the eccentric denizens of the small Alaska town of Salmon Run, and the aliens hidden nearby as their lives become intricately entangled.

***

Night of the Aurora (Salmon Run - Book 1)

A new life in Alaska.

A massive aurora.

A spaceship hidden under the ice and snow.

For Hawk and Zach Callahan, getting to the small town of Salmon Run presents the first challenge. From the moment they arrive the locals freely share their opinions. While still in Cordova an old prospector declares the two cheechakos unprepared for the realities of an Alaskan winter and goes about fixing it. A failed sled-dog takes an unwelcome liking to Hawk, giving rise to an old phobia. The young native Sasha attaches herself to Zach, much to his disgust. They think they have it made when they board the unique train that will take them through a dark roadless wilderness to their new home.

The same night a massive display of the Aurora Borealis lights up the sky.

Resulting in the Solar Express train powering down all by itself, stranding its passengers.

Only, the energetic aurora affected something else out in the wilderness.

The Singing Lakes (Salmon Run - Book 3)

An ominous singing voice only Zach and Sasha can hear...

First came the blizzard. Then the earthquake hit. Even as the people of Salmon Run rally to pick up the pieces, Zach and Sasha start hearing a voice singing across the radio. Singing no one else hears.

What do the lyrics in the beautiful voice mean? Some sound downright apocalyptic, and growing darker all the time. They need answers, and fast. They know the hidden aliens must be involved in some way, but how do you find aliens who want to remain hidden?

And what does all this have to do with Lake Iliamna?

 “An action packed fantasy sure to please fans of Morgan Rice’s previous novels, along with fans of works such as The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini…. Fans of Young Adult Fiction will devour this latest work by Rice and beg for more.”
​--The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (regarding Rise of the Dragons)

The #1 Bestselling series!

RISE OF THE VALIANT is book #2 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS, a free download)!

In the wake of the dragon’s attack, Kyra is sent on an urgent quest: to cross Escalon and seek out her uncle in the mysterious Tower of Ur. The time has come for her to learn about who she is, who her mother is, and to train and develop her special powers. It will be a quest fraught with peril for a girl alone, Escalon filled with dangers from savage beasts and men alike—one that will require all of her strength to survive.

Her father, Duncan, must lead his men south, to the great water city of Esephus, to attempt to free his fellow countrymen from the iron grip of Pandesia. If he succeeds, he will have to journey to the treacherous Lake of Ire and then onto the icy peaks of Kos, where there live the toughest warriors of Escalon, men he will need to recruit if he has any chance of taking the capital.

Alec escapes with Marco from The Flames to find himself on the run through the Wood of Thorns, chased by exotic beasts. It is a harrowing journey through the night as he quests for his hometown, hoping to be reunited with his family. When he arrives, he is shocked by what he discovers.

Merk, despite his better judgment, turns back to help the girl, and finds himself, for the first time in his life, entangled in a stranger’s affairs. He will not forego his pilgrimage to the Tower of Ur, though, and he finds himself anguished as he realizes the tower is not what he expects.

Vesuvius spurs his giant as he leads the Trolls on their mission underground, attempting to bypass The Flames, while the dragon, Theos, has his own special mission on Escalon.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE VALIANT 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 #3 in the series--THE WEIGHT OF HONOR--is now also available!

 “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.”
--San Francisco Book Review (regarding Rise of the Dragons)
