A Feast of Dragons (Book #3 in the Sorcerer’s Ring)

by Morgan Rice

“A breathtaking new epic fantasy series. Morgan Rice does it again! This magical saga reminds me of the best of J.K. Rowling, George R.R. Martin, Rick Riordan, Christopher Paolini and J.R.R. Tolkien. I couldn’t put it down!”

–Allegra Skye, Bestselling author of SAVED

A FEAST OF DRAGONS is book #3 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER’S RING, which begins with Book #1, A QUEST OF HEROES–a FREE download!

A FEAST OF DRAGONS (Book #3 in the Sorcerer’s Ring) takes us deeper into Thor’s epic journey to becoming a warrior, as he journeys across the Sea of Fire to the dragon’s Isle of Mist. An unforgiving place, home to the most elite warriors of the world, Thor’s powers and abilities deepen as he trains. His friendships deepen, too, as they face adversities together, beyond what they could imagine. But as they find themselves up against unimaginable monsters , The Hundred quickly goes from training session to a matter of life or death. Not all will survive.

Along the way, Thor’s dreams, along with his mysterious encounters with Argon, will continue to plague him, to press him to try to learn more about who he is, who his mother is, and what the source of his powers are. What is his destiny?

Back in the Ring, matters are getting much worse. As Kendrick is imprisoned, Gwendolyn finds it landing on her to try to save him, to save the Ring by bringing down her brother Gareth. She hunts for clues for her father’s murderer along with her brother Godfrey, and along the way, the two of them will become much closer, united in their cause. But Gwendolyn finds herself in mortal danger as she presses too deep, and she may be in over her head.

Gareth attempts to wield the Dynasty Sword and learns what it means to be King, becoming drunk with the abuse of power. He rules ruthlessly, becoming paranoid. As the noose tightens on the king’s assassin, the McClouds attack deeper into the Ring, and King’s Court finds itself in an increasingly precarious position.

Gwendolyn pines for Thor’s return, for them to be together, for their love to blossom. But with powerful forces in their way, it is questionable if that chance will ever come.

Will Thor survive The Hundred? Will King’s Court collapse? Will MacGil’s murderer be found? Will Gwendolyn end up with Thor? And will Thor finally learn the secret of his destiny?

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A FEAST OF DRAGONS 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. It is nearly 70,000 words.

Praise for The Hidden Evil Trilogy
“Best one yet – chilling, horrific. There were aspects of this story that reminded me somewhat of The Shining…a sort of creeping horror that was very effective.”
K. Sozaeva, Amazon Vine Voice, Top 500 Reviewer

“…Preta’s Realm is unlike anything I’ve ever read before. It was morbidly funny, while being downright scary at times, but over all I thoroughly enjoyed learning about something that I never knew existed until now-Pretas…The mother freaking Preta in this story kept me up late last night while I finished off the first book…Preta’s Realm is NOT for the faint of heart. It is gory. It is scary…I’d recommend it to those of you who enjoy taking a step into the darker world of literature, and letting your mind explore the monsters and creatures from other parts of the world…”
Bgilvaja, Amazon reviewer

“…Preta’s Realm is a fine example of character building done right. Mr. Thorn does an excellent job of crafting the characters and making sure that you can identify with them. He does a better job than some of the heavy hitters in the horror realm, actually.”
Bryan Hall, Author of Containment Room Seven

Overview (for Preta’s Realm):

Drew works hard, pays his taxes, and loves his family. But when a visit from the spirit of his deceased grandfather coincides with the violent murder of two co-workers, Drew falls into a desperate spiral of delusion and betrayal until he finally faces the demons of the past, which threaten to drag him deeper into Preta’s Realm.

More praise for The Hidden Evil Trilogy

“Thorn carefully constructed his characters to bring a realism to horror novel. Dragging other worldly demons and demon hunters to bring good vs evil to light in a modern day family as they face their own inadequacies was brilliant. I could almost smell the fear and feel the terror the main character went through not to mention the demonic stench that wove itself within the pages of the story. Excellent reading!”
Cheryl, Amazon reviewer

Any fan of Stephen King, Clive Barker, or “American Horror Story” will love The Hidden Evil Trilogy!

It has got all the ingredients a good tale can incorporate: friendship, brotherhood, and, above all, a spot-on sense of righteousness and duty. It will teach kids good values to follow in their first steps on the long road to true friendship, and remind grown-ups of the beautiful relationships that we are blessed with and that we so often take for granted.

MORE THAN ENTERTAINMENT -A TRAINING MANUAL for the FIERCEST WARRIORS in the GALAXY.

THE BELT

Interviewer: “Tell me how you became Furai.”

Eric: “When Portland, Oregon was VAPORIZED: I lived in a suburb; I survived the first day, or, DAY ONE, as the Alien Grays call it.

After the round up, worldwide, all survivors of the Gray massacre, are placed in labor camps.

We, the survivors, feed THE CONVEYOR BELT.

You can place anything on THE BELT, trees, bodies, dirt, rocks, grassâ?¦

THE BELT leads to a giant furnace miles away, taking the material on THE BELT; converting it into what the Grays need:

INPUT:

Water

Organic matter

Minerals

Trash

etc.

OUTPUT:

Energy

Food

Plastic

Steel

Ammunition

Rail guns

Shields

Propaganda

etc.

I’ve been BRANDED on my forehead. I’m forbidden from speaking during working hours; surrounded by men, women, children.

My orders: feed THE BELT!

We: dig, chop, chainsaw, bulldoze, hoist, heave, haul, push, pull. Tons of raw material are placed on THE BELT every second. Ten hours a day we labor; 7 days a week.

When I have a question, I look up; the SCREEN tells me what to do.

When one of us passes out from exhaustion, or dies, they’re thrown on THE BELT, with the rest of the material.

In front of me LIFE: trees, grass, birds.

Behind me: THE BELT leading to the furnace; our mobile living quarters; DESOLATION.

Upon awakening, we look forward to the living horizon, ignoring the dead trenches behind us.

EARTH is being STRIP-MINED; converted into Gray raw material. Every: useful; living; or green thing, EVERYTHING that can be chopped, shoveled or ground is placed on THE BELT.

After 10 hours of labor, the doors to our living quarters open; we go inside, eat, socialize, fall asleep.

We live a SPARTAN existence.

We’re never cold or hungry.

It: never rains; is always 75 degrees and sunny. Rain and clouds are burned away, by an energy shield following our camp, along with our living quarters.

The Grays encourage BREEDING; all of the women, of child bearing age, are pregnant. Women who refuse to breed are thrown on THE BELT.

The SCREENS tell us: work! be happy; don’t ask questions; breed; we comply.

ROCK MUSIC is playing from the loudspeakers.

The Grays don’t talk to us; they communicate with one another telepathically. Our only communication with the Grays: the messages appearing on the SCREENS.

This is what has become of man: FEED THE BELT! BE HAPPY! DON’T ASK QUESTIONS! BREED! So we do.

I’m fast asleep on day 45; a man wakes me up, â??follow me if you want to LIVE.’ He jumps back through the hole in my floor; I follow. I crawl, in an underground tunnel, for 1 hour.

I march, with thousands of other branded men, women, children, briskly for 24 hours straight.

A large group gather in a huge cave, in the rain forests of Oregon, behind a waterfall; somewhere in the Columbia River Gorge.

Joe is a small man with a deep voice, a large scar across his face.

Joe: â??You are here because YOU HAVE BEEN SUMMONED. Right now you have a choice: you can go back to THE BELT, or, join the Furai.

YOU HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THE BELT, RIGHT NOW; THIS MOMENT.

JOIN US:

We’ll teach you how to: FIGHT; acquire wealth; build an ARMY; organize; communicate in secret, gather intelligence; lead an army; send these evil fucking bastards back to hell!

We are NOT an army of FOLLOWERS, a hive mind of automatons.

We are a HYDRA, a multi-headed monster from greek mythology; if an attacker strikes one head, 4 heads attack the attacker.

If a head is cut off; two more grow in its place.

When GOD made man; He created a WEAPON.

This GALAXY belongs to MAN!

JOIN US.’

Immortal Blood (1)

by Ramz Artso

Sixteen-year-old Ranka is a vampire, and the youngest of the five Jonsdottir sisters. Her mother is the head of her Nordic American coven situated in New York, which means life is good. But everything changes once she meets Calvin, a sorcerer and therefore a sworn enemy, whose feelings for her are anything but hostile. In addition to this, her mother is pushing her into an arranged marriage. What choices will young Ranka make and, more importantly, where will they take her?



The Snapdragon (The Collected Accounts of the Undestiny Girl)

by Robert Allan James

An ancient and powerful artifact has made its way to the Corcothian capital of Andescar. A cantibel, a rod of magic from antiquity, its very nature was to draw attention. And it had. An exorcist hunted it for her church. A wizard with a grudge and deep knowledge of such terrible instruments sought it to prevent catastrophe. A mad leader of a militant religious order; a villainous spy from a foreign power; a dangerous and seductive criminal sorceress; they all wanted it and would stop at nothing to get it. But the Snapdragon would draw still more attention, cold and terrifying attention from the shadows and the deep, lost places of the night.

And tethered to the Snapdragon, through coincidence or bad luck, was the Undestiny Girl.

The Culling

by Charles Ray

It was the Apocalypse. By 2072, the civilizations of earth, great and small, rich and poor, had ceased to exist – replaced by small feudal landholdings ruled by vicious leaders who were little more than warlords. Communication and cooperation between communities had been replaced by mutual suspicion and hostility.

This state of affairs had been caused by the perfect storm; a result of the unholy alliance between religious fundamentalists and political extremists, which had led to a decline in academic research and scientific enquiry. A veil of ignorance, fueled by self-righteousness and greed, descended over humanity, blinding it to the path Mother Nature was taking as a result of the unrelenting destruction of the environment in the blind pursuit of wealth. Mankind was, therefore, caught unawares when the polar icecaps finally melted, causing a cataclysmic rise in sea levels, wiping out the world’s coastal cities. The loss of what had been the financial and transportation hubs for the world’s economy was the final blow. The survivors pulled back into small, self-contained communities, often ruled by those who possessed what little knowledge that was left, and backed up with the guns they’d stockpiled before things fell apart.

One such community was New Liberty, on the site of Washington, DC, once the capital of the most powerful nation on earth. Now, a few thousand people cling to a precarious existence under the brutal domination of The Committee of Citizens, ruled by Hector Cruz, a man who will do anything to hold onto power. He maintains control through periodic cullings of the lower levels of the population. His hold on power goes unchallenged until he decrees that a young prole, Hiroshi Jackson, is to be culled. Raised by his parents, rather than in a community institution, until the age of seven, Hiroshi is not the type to go meekly to his execution. He fights back, and is forced to flee into the wilds. But, Hiroshi also holds in his young head a secret that could change the course of history – provided he can survive long enough.
