I keep going on about the amount of characters featured in this book and once again three more are added! So this means that Thor gets even less ‘screen time’ … The other characters: Thor’s son who doesn’t actually talk, another bad guy and now it seems another good guy who will probably have an entirely dedicated storyline. We are already rooting for Thor, I don’t like the fact that someone else is going to get involved in that way.

The book: Not one of the best in the series for me. A lot more
More of the same; inaccurate editing, misspelling etc. It gets a bit boring actually. This title even has the ubiquitous honour of seemingly being able to transfer genders. Oh, well, dopey me for continuing I suppose.

I am also getting a bit sick of ".....we shall succeed in our quest or die trying....." Do none of these protagonists have a clue?

I was just as enthralled with book 12 as I was with the previous 11 books. My personal opinion is Morgan Rice is every bit as electric as J.K. Rowling.

Book 12

Just as enjoyable reading as the first eleven books, looking forward to the next installment.
This has been a most pleasurable experience.

I'm still loving where this story is going. We finally got a couple new characters that could take this series in some new directions. I can't wait for Book # 13.

I have the bundle, 10, 11, 12, but wanted to say that despite the errors, it's an imaginative and engaging read. It is too short for the money, but an obvious marketing ploy.

#12 takes the story into new horizons and I wonder where the series will end. Please tell us what happened to the leopard.

Plenty of errors but still enjoyable; just needs an editor.

Repetitive and predictable still... I am very glad i got all of these books free. I think my stubborn streak is the only reason i have gotten this far.

In this episode Morgan continues this superb story. Thor meets his mother in the Land of the Druids, and learns about his destiny. Now he needs to return to his land in order to rescue Gwendolyn and his son. Reece is trying to survive in the Upper Isles, now reunited with his sister and they are struggling in the battle against Romulus' dragons. Erec and Alistair face a civil war in the South Islands, after he is badly hurt and she is accused of trying to murder him. Two new characters are added ...more

Not a stand alone book, part of a series and should be read in sequential order...worth the read! I just could not put it down. Some days i read for 8 hours straight. What a great fantasy ride. So much is happening in these books but the author writes it so it is easy to follow, like several little stories happening in one book. The characters I found to visualize, like and or dislike quickly. Descriptions were intense and in depth enough to make me feel as I were there in the story as a charact ...more

The writing is still bad. The editing is still terrible. At least in this one, characters have stopped being completely stupid. Unlike other reviewers, the new characters don't do anything for me. It feels forced. Rice realizes that there aren't a lot of characters left alive, so if new characters don't show up, the series will be over. I have put up with this series since it first started going down the drain, but now that I am caught up, I will put it aside, probably for good. When book 13 com ...more

On par with its predecessors.

*spoilers from prior books*

In the twelfth Sorcerer's Ring story, which akin to most of its brethren opens with a quote from a Shakespeare play, Gwen faces Romulus' forces while seeking her child Guwayne, whom she put out at sea for his own protection. Thor is still in the Land of the Druids in want of meeting the mother he never knew, and too seeks to find his lost offspring. Alistair is still blamed for Erec's murder in the Southern Isles, in the meantime, and civil

Morgan Rice is frustrating to me. The stories while predictable are pleasant and interesting, and the world well-imagined. But. Get. An. Editor. Use Grammerly. Something. A Thesaurus. I exploded at least every third page. At one point I found three forms of the word "charge" in the same sentence. This person writes very entertaining books. I have read many - certainly more than I would have ordinarily when it involved such torture. Rice is both prolific and imaginative - two wonderful characteri ...more

I'm getting TIRED of this series. She needs to let it just go ahead and die instead of dragging out the story's suffering...and our suffering because we're reading it. I've invested this many books into it, I feel I must see it through, but COME ON NOW...stop it!! My ratings are going lower and lower the longer this thing is drug out. Quit while you're ahead!!

There were parts of this book that were really good and there were parts that were just ho hum. I find that I am scanning large parts of the book to get to something that is interesting. One more and then I'm probably done. The lack of editing and drastic changes in story-line are just becoming too frustrating.

Harsh. Lacking hope. Perseverance is the key to survival. Uniting with lost family members; losing loved ones; and discovering what is truly important. This book is a lot of things but it is darker and less optimistic that its predecessors. I am looking forward to the next iteration to see where we go...

This series gonna go on and in and on. New characters in place but will they survive? Onto the next book to find out. My recommendation for this book is to take a break for the series every so often then when you come back to the latest book it's all good again

This part of the series has made me a little nervous because we're suddenly introducing several new characters. Seems a little late in the series for that but the action continues to pull you along and the quality of story remains the same. On to #13!

A good continuation of the story. A bit hard to believe all the things Thor can do when he gets angry and fights so many people at once, etc., but still entertaining. So much tragedy, you wonder how they even survive.

Why do I keep reading these? Oh, that's right, I paid for these so need to get my money's worth out of it.

Please get an editor.

Reading the same sentence rephrased over and over is ridiculous
