The Sorcerer's Ring #10

La senda de los héroes. El anillo del hechicero 1

Rate this book
La senda de los héroes, primera entrega de El anillo del hechicero, es la historia de Thorgrin, un joven de catorce años, el último de cuatro hermanos, despreciado por los suyos y acostumbrado a sentirse diferente. Su gran sueño es convertirse en un gran guerrero, unirse a los hombres del rey y proteger a su soberano de las hordas enemigas que se ciernen al otro lado del Cañón. A pesar de la oposición de su padre y de su temprana edad, Thorgrin hará todo lo que esté en su mano para lograr acercarse a la corte.

Sin embargo, la corte del rey está sumida en intrigas, traiciones y violencia, un lugar peligroso para un joven ingenuo quien, además, ha recibido la inesperada atención de la hija del monarca. Además, Thorgrin está dándose cuenta de que posee unos poderes insólitos que le confirman esa particular diferencia que siempre ha intuido, unos poderes que pueden ayudarle a cumplir su sueño pero que, también, despiertan recelo. Puede que el destino tenga preparado para Thorgrin una senda completamente distinta a la que siempre había ansiado, una senda reservada para aquellos dispuestos a vencer las más temibles amenazas, las más difíciles contrariedades, una senda reservada para los héroes

La senda de los héroes es una epopeya sobre la amistad, el amor, la rivalidad y la lealtad, sobre caballeros y dragones, intrigas políticas y maquinaciones perversas, sobre la entrada en la edad adulta, corazones rotos, desilusiones, ambición y traición. Es una historia sobre el honor y el valor, sobre la predestinación y el destino, sobre la magia. Un mundo fantástico inolvidable del que, una vez dentro, no querrás salir.

Well, I can honestly tell you I am finished with this series. It just never ends. Yes there were some characters dying off. But nothing ever ends in the story.

Thor is off again to find his mother, the Ring is in jeopardy and Romulous is still out here but now he is the master of the dragons.

Yes the writing has improved. but everyone is so in love and they are so heartbroken. I mean how many times can we hear that the characters really love each other. Or how they believe in honor.

I guess the author is maybe writing for a younger genre than myself. But it so repetitive. After 9 books in the series we are no closer to any type of closure within the story in my opinion. I mean the ebooks re only $3, but this is getting very long in the tooth. It's become for me like a TV series that has gone on too long.

Sorry to say I won't be back for another installment.

Ugh!! I both love and hate this series of books...mostly, I hate the writing but the storyline is so good I keep reading. These books read like they've been written by a 10 year old...TONS of redundancy and sometimes it feels like words are being written only to fill the pages....but the PLOT....ohhhhhh the plot...I seriously think about quitting every time I pick up one of these books and read how, once again, the character is miraculously saved for the BILLIONTH time as he prepares for his final breath in battle...the repetition KILLS ME! I truly wish someone had helped this author make these books the five star readings that they could have been...the premise and plot of this series keeps me hooked and I HATE THAT!! If only I could read them without cringing at the poor writing

Scott's Jan 2014 review - spot on. This series is very readable and I remain curious to see what happens - but it is ridiculously never-ending and breathless. Rice had to create a large family at the beginning so as to be able to put them all into story lengthening plots. Characters are too often over the top - the evil Romulus at the end is about to have Gwendolyn's twisted sister Luanda help him enter the Ring.

Will he have his wicked way with her?
Will Romulus turnout to be gay and perhaps have a crush on Thor?
Will Stara marry her cousin and give birth to kids with congenital defects?
Will Tyrion show up in this series and we see an improvement in writing?

At 15 books and perhaps still going, ultimately it is a bit of a rip off.

I read these series of books simply because I wanted to know the ending! But will never end and I will never know . Sold for a far younger audience than I, written by a 10 year old I would say, very poor writing even for a young audience. Curious fools like I would buy! Only got 11 "chapters" because not a complete novel, it would take a min if three books to get to the point! Agony! Because I have better taste than this.....Just call me curious!

I cannot understand why I am still reading these books. (ok, I am totally skimming them) the editing is horrific, there are times when the wrong damn name is used for Pete's sake! I was seriously hoping that as the story grew the writing would as well but sometimes I wonder if it is not actually getting worse....
One caveat, is that these people are finally making mistakes and life is falling into place for everyone with such ease as was becoming the trend...

Predictable. Rice continues to rip off other stories...add Robin Hood to the list. Characters continue to make stupid decisions that have no logical foundation. There are way too many subplots for such short books. Why do I keep torturing myself with these wastes of words?

Great story line, only negative is the editing. Typos are not as forgivable as they used to be, spell check is just to prevalent, and editors should have caught them before it hit presses as well.

Hoy en día la fantasía épica es un territorio inhóspito, no apto para todos los paladares; quizás inapropiado a veces, según a qué público se tenga en mente. La sangre y el odio, las tramas complicadas, el cinismo de los antihéroes; pueden satisfacernos, pero en cierto modo lo podemos disfrutar gracias al contraste que supone la experiencia previa, la de alguna fantasía clásica, la de los cuentos infantiles, que nos construimos durante la infancia y la adolescencia. De algún modo, creo que cuando ya crecidos abrimos un libro de fantasía seguimos esperando inconscientemente aquella sensación de maravilla onírica, por lo que cuando nos encontramos con una fantasía realista, la sorpresa es mayor y más agradable. Aún así, en medio de tanta oscuridad literaria, a veces es bueno disponer de obras como La senda de los héroes, primera parte de la saga de “El anillo del hechicero” de Morgan Rice, donde la inocencia y la sencillez tienen aún cabida. No es un libro complejo.

This is the tenth of eleven books so far. At this point I'm just ready for this series to come to an end. I was ready for the end around Book 6 but it just keeps going and going. I should quit. I shouldn't read anymore but I figured I would stick it out and find out what happens to everyone in the end. The Problem is I don't think there is going to be an ending any time soon. If the main characters pass away there is now a new, extremely powerful son of the two mains to take this series up to 20 odd something books. I have Book 11 on my kindle. I feel like I have to read it because it is there. Don't think i'll be purchasing book 12. Sorry Morgan Rice. I liked it at the start but it is just too drawn out and now i'm tired.

Now, near the end of book ten, Thor finally leaves to find his mom. Oh, and the ring is in peril.

Net als de vorige delen ook hier weer getekende woorden, taalfouten.

Verhaal deed wat gekunsteld aan. Weinig tot geen spanning
Kijken wat het volgende deel 'bewind van staal' gaat brengen.

Okay, I am finally done with this series. I have been unhappy with the direction the story is going for a few books already, but I was reluctant to drop the series because I still remember how much I liked it at the beginning and I was hoping that I would return to that. Also, I was very annoyed by the fact that I have already invested so much time in this series. Therefore, I was trying to soldier on so it wouldn't be a complete waste. But I still have seven more books to go and I will be even more annoyed if I keep going hating every minute of it.
And it's not only the fact that the story seems to go round and round in an endless loop. For me, the worst is that I no longer can recognize the characters that I once loved.


Do not continue if you have not read this book......

I cannot understand how Gwendolyn can be so naïve, thinking that years and years of resentment could be so easily healed. She miscalculated and in doing so, put everyone in danger.

I am so disappointed in Reece. He may try to put all the blame on the Upper Isles MacGil, but he has no one to blame but him. And don't get me started on Selece (that's her name, right?) Why would she kill herself because Reece didn't love her anymore????? Where is the strong, independent, kick-ass woman that we met in previous books???

And WTH is the pilgrimage? Who thought that it was a good idea for all the soldiers in the Legion and the Silver to abandon King's Court? Why would you leave the city unprotected?

Romulus and Luanda... Well, I was already sick and tired of them. I really don't have the strength to watch them work together to destroy the Ring.

In the next chapter of this series protagonist Gwendolyn has her child changing both her and her partners life forever as is the destiny of the world at large. Once their wedding is held Thor reaches his goal of becoming a Knight and prepares for the most dangerous quest to both himself and the Ring known so far.

I've been reading this series on and off for a few years now and honestly it very rarely hooks me. Though the lord of the rings esq narrative can be exciting sometimes it's characters are very poorly built and that gives little reason to bother sticking with the series to find out anymore.

W tym tomie Thor i Gwen przestają być moimi ulubionymi bohaterami serii. Ich wątek mnie znudził do tego stopnia, że omijałam rozdziały im poświęcone. Z większym zaangażowaniem czytałam natomiast sceny z udziałem Kendricka, Reece’a oraz Godfreya.

Z jednej strony cieszy mnie fakt, że w serii obecnych jest tak wielu bohaterów, co sprawia, że czytelnik może wybrać wątek najbardziej go interesujący. Z drugiej strony jednak mam wrażenie, że wątki poboczne są zbyt luźne i w żaden logiczny sposób się ze sobą nie łączą.

Quite repetitive and seems we are on the same cycle as before. The last few books felt like a "gap filler" to me to pad the time between the two major conflicts (one that was and one that is coming).

For a few times in this book, I seriously contemplated skipping towards the last few chapters and getting it over with, but I persevered through it.

I dont know what attracts me to keep reading these books, but there must be something :)

I have the bundle, 10, 11, 12 but wanted to post a short review on #10. Despite the errors and repetition, the story is fast-paced and engaging. There are multiple characters and it is good to see the story switch from one to another so to have a more detailed view of what's happening as a whole...this also gives further insight into each character's mind.

Overall, an action-packed fantasy adventure.

This was my least favourite book of the series. The writing is getting very repetitive and I find myself not wanting to read through another invasion of the ring. I am interested in Thor learning more about his mother and of Eric and Alistair. Some good stories yet to go but Romulus and Luanda are tiring. Like others I want an ending but it's getting to be a long slog. I need at least a good break before reading the next book in the series.

Very enjoyable

I enjoyed dreaded this book and following the continuing adventure of our characters. It's fun to watch them grow as mature from the first book. As always, this series continues to delight. Looking forward to more.

I have just finished Book 10 in this series, and I am finally impressed and intrigued. I am now glad I suffered through books 1-10 which I found repetitive and uninteresting. Hopefully the rest of the series will get better and better.

The series is intriguing but not the best written. The writer goes in circles and seems to have series parental issues. Not a single person has a mother that they liked. 🙄 Makes for good long distance audiobook listening though, although by book 10 it's getting boring

Absolutely HORRIBLE. Poorly written. Childish with incredibly poor grammar. Intensely painful to read. A fifth grade book report is more enjoyable.

My comments about this series don't change much. Trying to follow a badly edited plotline can prove extremely challenging. But I've come this far so I'm going to try to stick to it. Wish me luck!
