Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.â?¦Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”

–Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos

The #1 Bestseller!

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: RISE OF THE DRAGONS (KINGS AND SORCERERSâ??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.

When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she journeys out on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragonâ??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 magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, tooâ??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 saga of knights and warriors, of kings and lords, of honor and valor, of magic, destiny, 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 will be published soon.

“RISE OF THE DRAGONS succeedsâ??right from the startâ?¦. A superior fantasyâ?¦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.â?¦All the trappings of high fantasy are here, from soldiers and battles to confrontations with selfâ?¦.A recommended winner for any who enjoy epic fantasy writing fueled by powerful, believable young adult protagonists.”

“…where skillful wit and good storytelling come together into one fun-filled read!”
– Jackie Collins

“…deserves a prize for “The Most Imaginative Title of the Year– or Any Year” —
Stan Lee

Welcome to ‘Yuck Kingdom’! The streets are made of smelly jelly fellies. The trees are all winding, dinding and finding. And the hills are made of slushy gushy mush. It’s the Kingdom of Yuck and the last place that Falisha Whiskers wants to be in. But Falisha needs to find her brother Jesse.

She didn’t mean to flush Jesse down the toiletâ?¦ not entirely at least! And now, she needs to find him and take him back home before her daddy gets back or they’re both going to be in heaps of trouble! But the Kingdom of Yuck has more twists and turns than a water slide. Will Falisha find her brother in the twisting streets made of smelly jelly fellies? And will she be able to get him back in time, and all bathed and clean, before their mommy tells their daddy that Falisha flushed her little brother down the toilet?

Teacher Recommended! For ages 4-8. Parents should explain being flushed down the toilet is only pretend.

More About the Author


Jeff Rivera is an award-winning young adult fiction author and debut children’s book author. A popular inspirational media personality, he has written for Entertainment Weekly, Huffington Post, School Library Journal and many other national outlets. Jeff Rivera has interviewed such children’s book authors as Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), James Patterson (The Worst Years of My Life) and S.E. Hinton (The Outsiders).

Being the uncle of 12 active nieces and nephews and recalling the childhood antics of his oldest sister and younger brother inspired him to turn his creativity towards writing children’s books. His first children’s book, Um â?¦ Mommy, I Think I Flushed My Brother Down The Toilet, marks the adventures of Falisha Whiskers as she sets out to bring back her little brother after accidently (wellâ?¦ mostly accidently) flushing him down the toilet into the Kingdom of Yuck!

Exclusive: A Q&A with Jeff Rivera

Question: You write for many national outlets, you blog, you’re on TV, you talk to kids all over the world and you’re a son and uncle of 12 nieces and nephews. How do you balance all that with your writing?
Rivera: Great question. Sometimes I wonder the same thing but here’s how I look at it: We’re all blessed with 24 hours a day, so if you really want to do something, you can carve the time out to do it. Sometimes when people look at their lives and they think they don’t have the time, they realize that they spend a lot of time watching TV or surfing the web or playing video games or staring up at the ceiling and when you subtract all that time, you realize, “Hey, I have a lot more time than I thought I did.”

Q: You’ve written mostly for young adults in the past. How has writing for children been different for you?
Rivera: I think it’s a lot more fun because kids are so honest. They’ll tell you very clearly what they like or don’t like and you’re able to write stories exactly the way they like them. Plus, I’m one of those adults that never has really grown up totally. I still buy toys for me to play with and I still watch cartoons and Disney and Dreamworks Animation movies.
