--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!

Disappointed but wanted to love it
The writing is stilted, awkward and overwrought. The plot is lame and the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes. And why do they depict Ceres as an archer on the cover when she mainly uses a sword? There’s some talent exhibited but too little; I could never recommend this book or series.
Not worth your time.
Terrible writing style, horrible plot. Author couldn’t seem to decide where they were going with the story. A lot like other books by this author, no character development, lots a exciting things happen but are poorly described and not well thought out and they write enough in one book just to get u to buy the next where more of the same happens. Lame.
