The #1 Bestseller!

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERS—Book 1).

Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is.

Just as Kyra is coming of age, the local lord comes to take her away. Her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she quests on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon—and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever.

15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the paranormal source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS is a sweeping, romantic saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, action, adventure, destiny, sorcery, monsters and dragons. It is a story of love and broken hearts, of deception, of 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 #2 in KINGS AND SORCERERS is also now available!

“RISE OF THE DRAGONS 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.”

  • Must read!

    By Kamiyah Reese
    The book Rise of the Dragons shows how a heroine named Kyra wants to find more about herself. I noticed a little bit of repeated quotes like “ her heart was thumping wildly in her chest” or “ she just stood there, petrified with terror.” But other than that the book was great!
  • Nice!

    Great book
  • Stolen Book

    By DarkLadyMae
    Not sure how to contact someone about this but this is an awesome story, but I read it on the AnyStory app before I realized it might be stolen. Someone going by the name Clara Zoe is being paid for a story called Through the Flame: Dragon’s Calling. The story is word for word the same story except they changed all the character names. I hope that if this is a stolen story someone who can fix this and hold people responsible sees this because stealing someone’s work is the lowest of the low.
  • First of a series.

    By Ddodd16
    I enjoyed reading this book. It is the first in a series. Not a stand alone. More geared toward younger adults. I started reading the second book. It jumps between characters.
  • Game of thrones
