--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons)
From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new fantasy series.
17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Delos, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate.
18 year old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition—The Killings—that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out.
When Ceres stuns the court with her hidden powers, she finds herself wrongfully imprisoned, doomed to an even worse life than she could imagine. Thanos, smitten, must choose if he will risk it all for her. Yet, thrust into a world of duplicity and deadly secrets, Ceres quickly learns there are those who rule, and those who are their pawns. And that sometimes, being chosen is the worst that can happen.
SLAVE, WARRIOR, QUEEN tells an epic tale of tragic love, vengeance, betrayal, ambition, and destiny. Filled with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding action, it transports us into a world we will never forget, and makes us fall in love with fantasy all over again.
Book #2 in OF CROWNS AND GLORY will be released soon!

This book was really good, Finished it in one sitting. I fell in love with the characters quickly. I’m really excited to read the other books. Totally recommend.
I came into this book not expecting much and was actually surprised on how I enjoyed parts of it.
The story and overall theme is actually great. However, there were a couple moments that took you out of the book such as how Anka barely spoke to Ceres in her room and how Ceres was able to feel the chopping block with her hands despite them being tied up a page ago. It also had the tendency to cut from scene to scene instead of fluidly transfer into the next one, but only a little nitpick of mine.
Liked the characters and the setting. You had a very good start to this book series and hope to read the next ones soon.
Continue to work and improve your writing skills! :)
Liked this Book, was a nice read, reminded me of Sarah J Maas - Throne of Glass, kept me engaged from start to finish. Looking forward the the future books in the series.
