 The epic conclusion is finally here . . .

Ever since leaving her home in Oescienne, Jahrra has known the fate awaiting her in the kingdom of Ghorium. She just didn’t realize she’d be unprepared when that day arrived. After all, the prophecy has never been clear on how she is to defeat the Crimson King, only that if it is to be done, she is the one who must find a way. But time is running short, and Jahrra only hopes she’ll find the answers before it is too late …

With Nimbronia and the reluctant Creecemind dragons behind them, Jaax and his ward travel with their friends to Dhonoara, the valley of the elves, where the Coalition of Ethoes gathers to prepare for battle. But the Tanaan dragon isn’t as confident as usual; there are far too many devious players in this game, and it is no longer just about winning or losing for him. Freedom from the Tyrant and his ancient curse may come at too high a price.

As open war looms, both Jahrra and Jaax will be tested in mind, body, heart, and spirit. Old friends and enemies will emerge, and secrets that have remained buried for centuries will finally be revealed. Even if Jahrra does the impossible by destroying the evil festering in the east, it will come at a great cost. For battles are not fought without risk; wars are not won without sacrifice. In the end, Jahrra must find the strength to do what she must, and the courage to endure her greatest challenge yet.

 A year has passed since the Tanaan dragon Jaax and his human ward, Jahrra, came to live within the protected boundaries of Lidien, the great City of Light. But even the safest places in Ethöes can harbor enemies, and one cannot hide from one’s fate forever.
At the onset of yet another departure, Jahrra realizes there is more to this next step in her journey than she previously thought. With Lidien fading in the distance, she understands she is finally leaving behind not just her friends, but also her childhood and a life once filled with dreams and illusions of safety and love. The road ahead is perilous, and Jahrra knows she will face many trials before coming to stand before her destiny. With each passing day, the threat of the Crimson King grows stronger, and Jaax and their allies will need the help of the legendary Creecemind dragons if they wish to overthrow their common enemy.

Before they can present their case before the king of the Creecemind, however, Jahrra and her Tanaan guardian must make a perilous journey north through the mountains, where danger and uncertainty lurks in every crevasse and behind the face of everyone they meet. Their trust in others must be bartered carefully, for the Tyrant’s influence stretches far and wide. And even if they do reach Nimbronia, the frozen City in the Clouds, their troubles may not be over. If the king of the ice dragons cannot be convinced to join their cause, then their fate, and the fate of Ethöes, may very well be sealed in sorrow and defeat.
“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”

--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos

A RITE OF SWORDS is book #7 in the bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING--which begins with the #1 Bestseller A QUEST OF HEROES (Book #1)!

In A RITE OF SWORDS (Book #7 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor grapples with his legacy, battling to come to terms with who his father is, whether to reveal his secret, and what action he must take. Back home in the Ring, with Mycoples by his side and the Destiny Sword in hand, Thor is determined to wreak vengeance on Andronicus’ army and liberate his homeland—and to finally propose to Gwendolyn. But he comes to learn that there are forces even greater than he that might just stand in his way.

Gwendolyn returns and strives to become the ruler she is destined to be, using her wisdom to unite the disparate forces and drive out Andronicus for good. Reunited with Thor and her brothers, she is grateful for a lull in the violence, and for the chance to celebrate their freedom. But things change quickly—too quickly—and before she knows it, her life is thrown upside down again. Her elder sister, Luanda, caught in a fierce rivalry with her, is determined to wrest power, while King MacGil’s brother arrives with his own army to gain control of the throne. With spies and assassins on all sides, Gwendolyn, embattled, learns that being queen is not as safe as she thought.

Reece’s love with Selese finally has a chance to flourish, yet at the same time, his old love appears, and he finds himself torn. But idle times are soon overcome by battle, and Reece, Elden, O’Connor, Conven, Kendrick, Erec and even Godfrey must face and overcome adversity together if they are to survive. Their battles take them to all corners of the Ring, as it becomes a race against time to oust Andronicus and save themselves from complete destruction. As powerful, unexpected forces battle for control of the Ring, Gwen realizes she must do whatever it takes to find Argon and bring him back.

In a final, shocking twist, Thor learns that while his powers are supreme, he also has a hidden weakness—one that may just bring his final downfall.

Will Thor and the others liberate the Ring and defeat Andronicus? Will Gwendolyn become the queen they all need her to be? What will become of the Destiny Sword, of Erec, Kendrick, Reece and Godfrey? And what is the secret that Alistair is hiding?

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A RITE OF SWORDS is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders.

Books #8--#17 in the series are now also available!

“Jam packed with action, romance, adventure, and suspense. Get your hands on this one and fall in love all over again.”
