A DREAM OF MORTALS is Book #15 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)!
In A DREAM OF MORTALS, Thorgrin and his brothers struggle to break free from the grips of the pirates, and to continue their search for Guwayne at sea. As they encounter unexpected friends and foes, magic and weaponry, dragons and men, it will change the very course of their destiny. Will they finally find Guwayne?
Darius and his few friends survive the massacre of their people—but only to find that they are captives, thrown into the Empire Arena. Shackled together, facing unimaginable opponents, their only hope for survival is to stand and fight together, as brothers.
Gwendolyn wakes from her slumber to discover that she and the others have survived their trek across the Great Waste—and even more shocking, that they have come to a land beyond their wildest imagination. As they are brought into a new royal court, the secrets Gwendolyn learns about her ancestors and her own people will change her destiny forever.
Erec and Alistair, still captive at sea, struggle to break free from the grips of the Empire fleet in a bold and daring nighttime escape. When odds seem at their worst, they receive an unexpected surprise that might just give them a second chance for victory—and another chance to continue their attack on the heart of the Empire.
Godfrey and his crew, imprisoned once again, set to be executed, have one last chance to try to escape. After being betrayed, they want more than escape this time—they want vengeance.
Volusia is surrounded on all sides as she strives to take and hold the Empire capital—and she will have to summon a more powerful magic than she’s ever known if she is to prove herself a Goddess, and become Supreme Ruler of the Empire. Once again, the fate of the Empire hangs in the balance.
With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A DREAM OF MORTALS 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.

Forging of wills…
“A dream of Mortals”, the “good” find new allies and loyal bonds are strengthened. The new allies, from the lost land, have that feeling of “Déjà vu”, should be highly interesting to see how this all unfolds. The empire is in dis-array, Volusia managed to “cut off the head” but can she defeat the seven legs, the true power behind the head of the empire? Can she become a true “Goddess” of the Empire? Ragon see nothing but total darkness, a prelude of things to come. I look forward to the next book!!
The Sorcerer's Ring Series
I have enjoyed the story enfolding in each of these books. However, the misspellings, typos and loss of story content are very distracting. I am actually a little disappointed in myself for spending the money I have spent to finish this series, but the story line keep me buying. Honestly, does anyone edit anymore?
Loads of enjoyment
I have so enjoyed this series I am going to miss it after the final two books.
