--The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (regarding Rise of the Dragons) 

The #1 Bestselling series! 

A REALM OF SHADOWS is book #5 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS)! 

In A REALM OF SHADOWS, Kyra finds herself in the midst of a burning capital, attacked by a host of dragons, clinging for life. With her beloved homeland destroyed, The Flames down and the trolls pouring in, Kyra must urgently quest to Marda to retrieve the magic weapon before it is too late—even if it takes her into the very heart of darkness.

Duncan finds himself trapped, with the others, in the burning capital, and he uses all his wits to find his men, attempt escape, and rally his forces to regroup and attack Pandesia. Across the kingdom, Merk sails with King Tarnis’ daughter through the Bay of Death as they abandon the Tower of Kos and sail for the warrior isle of Knossos. Pursued by Vesuvius and his army of trolls, crossing the world’s most treacherous waters, they know they have little chance to reach the isle, and even less chance of escape.

Dierdre and Marco survive the tidal wave that destroyed Ur only to find their beloved city under water. With everyone they knew and loved lost and dead, they must pick up the pieces and journey to the one person they know who is left alive: Kyra. Alec, meanwhile sails back for Escalon with the people of The Lost Isles, holding the precious sword that might just change everything. But none expect to encounter a land destroyed, a land that is now teeming with dragons.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, A REALM OF SHADOWS 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, 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 #6 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon. 

“If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”

Great I love it

Keep it up love the book wish they were longer though

fantasyenthusiast ,


Many times I’ve had problems keeping my line of thought parallel to the books and I’m finally realizing why. The inconsistency is astonishing. In the ending of the last book, Vesuvius captures Kyle, yet in the beginning of this book Kyle is on the battlefield and survives by using a shield and bodies of others? The consistency is horrible.

Anybody left out there?

The problem with the world building here is that there is no support structure behind the invaders of the land. On one side we have the trolls, which alt least can munch on the victims. Question is what did the live on before they came south. The southern army is normal people, but what are they living on, now that the land and cities have been decimated? For a army of one million, a support staff 10:1 is needed, and its just not there. Besides that, both generals have a nasty habit of pushing their troops off cliffs and generally using them as shark bait. They are not used well, and their lives are wasted. Who would support that? Our hero’s continue to have cliff hangers every chapter. It’s getting old..
