Enough already, the writing just repeats itself constantly, I think to get the required maximum number of words he needs in a book to get published so he can make more money because you will have to buy the next book to see if the main characters got through their next ordeal and there will always be a next ordeal for them it seems. I have already bought the next book in this over long series and I see that there is a new one just out with still no end in site, so number 10 is my last one. I am ...more

I don't understand why I am still reading this series. It's like a train wreck, you just can't look away. Please make it STOP!

I was a little worried because the last one seemed to be improving, but this one was pretty bad again, so yay! It is very much like passing an accident on the freeway, you can't not look.

It ended with one of the most gigantic Duh! moments I think I have ever read. Did anyone not see that coming like 3 books ago? Pretty much since Alistar was introduced? (And it is totally a boy's name. Wasn't there a nice girl's name somewhere you could have used?)

Okay. I like this series..or liked. Books 1 - 6 were great but about now I'm just saying to myself:
"OMG! Please be the last one! How does it end? I want it to end!!!"
I know for a fact that is at least one more book. Please, Please Morgan Rice - wrap it up and finish it already. It's good reading but how much can happen to these people?

Another enjoyable installment in the series. I have the bundle, 7, 8, 9 but wanted to write a review for #8. As usual, it is filled with battles, magic and imaginative lands and creatures and though there are impossible situations and releases from them, it is still engaging.

I do like the general style of writing but it is in need of editing and proofreading for numerous errors. There is too much repetition. However, the descriptions are good, thoughts and feelings give an in-depth feel to

In the eighth installment of Morgan Rice's The Sorcerer's Ring saga, Andronicus and his minion Rafi attempt to crush the soul and identity of the captive Thorgrin. Meanwhile, his love Gwendolyn and others venture into the Netherworld in search of Argon. Furthermore, Reece leads his own entourage into the Canyon to retrieve the lost Destiny Sword. Moreover, Romulus, wearing a magical cloak, seeks to destroy the Shield protecting the Ring

I read this book and had to get the other 16 in the series. 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 character myself.

If you like action, romance,

For young adult readers, this book is a tidal wave of adventure, battles and twists. For an adult reader, it feels like Rice just throws a monkey wrench into things to stretch out the length of the series. This is one thing I don't like about many series.
Rice does a great job of giving you characters that seem real and you can care about. I've become disengaged from them mostly because I feel the series has taken some turns that are solely to extend the number of books required to arrive at a

First off I am a big fan of this series. Morgan Rice actually told me that this will be an ongoing series with no end in sight which is absolutely great news. However I now begin to feel a niggle, because especially in this book there are way to many storylines cramped into this books. For books that are not that long (200-300 pages) compared to other epic fantasy series these are great, but because they are so short I feel as though there should be less storylines to follow. You don't get such ...more

In this episode Morgan continue her superb story. This episode starts with Thorgrin under control of black magic, fighting at the side of his father, against his friends from the ring. In the mean time, Gwendolyn is in a quest to rescue Argon, the only one with power enough to save Thorgrin and the Ring. Reece goes to the bottom of the canyon in order to try to retrieve the Sword of Destiny. Packed with action, this book will keep you entertained for hours. And there is not an idle moment until ...more

This might have been a readable series if the self published author had a decent editor to pull her up for the plot holes, dodgy timelines, implausible battles, repetitive action that cycled around to ensure series continuation. Then there are the typos. It’s a shame really as the young readers it is supposed to cater for deserve better.
I forgave much in the first three books, then I started skipping, got this far then threw in the towel. Reading blurbs for the later books and the 1 and 2 star

Ok. I have been really enjoying this series and really enjoying them. But this book seemed to just drag along with no reason in places. I kept feeling like it was over for the characters only to find they revive and find themselves in a worse spot yet. Some things just seemed out of place like Romulus crossing the Eastern Ring in a day while Selese takes what seems to be weeks to travel the same distance. And then the book ends with me wondering how it could have finished so abruptly with no ...more

As great as the rest of the series drawing me in and keeping me enthralled and entered as a good book should do. I have loved this series from the start and can't wait to read the next book. I am glad that it is now offered in the three box sets which makes reading and buying my books so easy.

Nothing really to add other than my usual complaint about editing etc. I suppose I'll continue down this long and seemingly winding road just to see where it ends up. I actually am wondering if anyone is reading these reviews.....remember - YOU guys ask for them!

I feel like the books are starting to drag some. However, I did enjoy Thor's story this time. I hope the following books speed up just a little. This is the first series I have read that is this long, so to be fair this may just be how they are.

Made it halfway, and finally had to admit defeat.

Fantasy novel full of repetitive redundancies; more Deus Ex Machina than I've seen in any other dozen series combined; awful, juvenile dialogue; and dozens of frantic characters running all over the place, none of whom I care about one whit. Oy.
Good book

You people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so.Shelley MA

great as always for Morgan Rice. starting book 9 . at the end of each book there is a total surprise.
The surprise ending in this one was a total shock, but in a good way.

Sorcery has become superior to even the most ancient of magics. The ups and downs, twists and turns of the plot are amazing, and the strength of character of Thor's friends is proven in so many ways.

Very formulaic. Really wish I hadn't read this far in the series. Done with it.

Skimmed the whole book.

I no longer care if any of the characters die.

This is the worst fantasy book I have ever read.

My audible player and kindle app became a little confused yesterday and skipped 3 chapters of the book. I was not entirely sure what was going on so I went back and found where I had originally left off... I was still confused.

Argon can make transport bubbles.

The sword is melted.

Thor is free and now has two dragons, a maybe pregnant girlfriend and no sword.

Godfrey might be dead, but probably not. He did drink before the battle or the day before the battle. He seemed to have been charging for

When I first started reading this series, I wasn't quite sure that I wanted to continue. I felt that, although I liked the story, the book was rather badly written and could do with some editing. But I persevered to see where the story would go. As I have progressed through the series, I have noticed that the language use and editing has improved. This makes the books more pleasant to read.
I do really enjoy Thor's tale and I am - as usual - looking forward to the next book in the series. I

The more I read these, the more frustrated I get, that such a good concept is being driven into the ground. It doesn't appear that this author has a single thought of his own in these books. Star Wars, anyone? The predictability of these books borders on the absurd. If you've watched a movie or read a book in the last 20 years, you could predict everything that's about to happen. Even the twists aren't gripping anymore because they're so predictable. The idea behind this book is great, but I ...more

“Her heart dropped to consider that this flimsy bridge was their only way to cross the northern side of the Canyon, to enter the Netherworld, and to find Argon. She looked up and saw, in the distance, the Netherworld beckoning, a sheet of blinding snow. The crossing felt even more ominous.” 0 likes
