“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal.

--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos 

The #1 Bestseller!

A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously.

But King’s Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King’s Legion.

Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king’s daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king’s sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons.

Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down—and the entire kingdom with him.

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES 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, including fans of George RR Martin, Sarah J. Maas, Rick Riordan, and readers of the legends of King Arthur and Merlin. It is 82,000 words. 

Books #2--#17 in the series are now also available!

“Grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go….This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning.”
--Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned}

“A great plot, and this especially was the kind of book you will have trouble putting down at night. The ending was a cliffhanger that was so spectacular that you will immediately want to buy the next book, just to see what happens.”
--The Dallas Examiner {regarding Loved}

“A spirited fantasy that weaves elements of mystery and intrigue into its story line. A Quest of Heroes is all about the making of courage and about realizing a life purpose that leads to growth, maturity, and excellence….For those seeking meaty fantasy adventures, the protagonists, devices, and action provide a vigorous set of encounters that focus well on Thor's evolution from a dreamy child to a young adult facing impossible odds for survival….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.”

Great great greatI couldn’t stop myself until it was over and then I wanted more!.Score: 5/5

Ok booksI do not like to buy books in this format because they say there are more than one book in the series. If you bought a printed version of the 3 (?) books in this series it would not even be one book. Probably if you bought the whole series it might make one or 2 books at best. I am done with this. If you can’t give us the whole book don’t bother. It is an ok series of books but it does drone on and on..Score: 1/5

A first draft written by a twelve-year-oldYou might think I'm being harsh, but I'm really not. The characters are all one dimensional, the writing was poor, the story was a combination of plots from every sword and magic fantasy ever written. I read the first book because it was free, the second I read because I hoped it'd get better (there were a few signs of originality and the possibility that it would get better.) I read the next five, that's right, I read even more, because this series was a perfect example of what not to publish as a writer. If you want something that requires no brainpower or imagination to read, give it a shot. And too the author, if you ever feel so inclined to read this review. How in the hell are you a bestselling author?.Score: 1/5

Before you get hooked ...This series is great but goes on forever… I bought maybe 10 of the books. (I have no clue how many books there are now in this series.) Then I relised NO one ever dies.

It’s great!Ignore all of the negative reviews, they are literally littered throughout this review feed. I do agree yes this book has its ups and downs in the grammar area and plot and things of relation; yet there still is something to it that just draws me in. Granted everyone who is upset should be the books are really not up to par of what we are use to, but it’s still a good read. Honestly a quick read; I recommend you pick up the entire series and read it. It’s quite interesting, even with the mistakes..Score: 4/5

It’s ok but it could be betterAlright so I’ll start with the thing I have problems with. First is the authors use of cliches. He says things like “kid in a candy store” and while that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, it does raise some questions about the writing style. He’s a knight in training. There weren’t candy stores in this time period and while we know what that means as a reader it detracted from the overall feeling of that chapter. Also I feel like the battle tactics they are teaching aren’t correct. You would never throw a weapon away. That’s not a good idea. It gives the enemy a weapon to use and if you miss then you don’t have a weapon. So I feel like a little more research on the topic of knights and battle strategy should have been implemented. Ok so here’s what I like, it has great characters and I feel a great connection to Thor. The author uses imagery really well to connect me to where I’m at and that’s a great aspect. Other than that there’s not much else. Wish I could give this a higher score but the issues I stated detract from my reading experience..Score: 2/5

Pretty good but various errors throughout readingLike my title says the book series is quite good with an interesting story. However, there are multiple instances of the wrong character name being used or repetition of the same word over and over making some scenes feel repetitive. If you can get over this then it’s a great book but it definitely subtracts from the feel of the story at times..Score: 4/5

How did this make it to print?I’ve never rolled my eyes so hard while attempting to read a book. I could go into detail but I haven’t the time. Just know that the plot is the cheesiest, most predictable, most nonsensical thing. It will leave you with more questions than answers and not good ones! You’ll wonder why every character is cliche and ignorant. You’ll wonder how things just “happen” and so easily! Protagonist is obviously the savior of the world who immediately gets the girl and the only problems he has is due to his own ineptitude. There’s nothing about any of the characters to love and they all run around in circles doing nothing much at all..Score: 1/5

THOR!!!!!This is a tremendous / outstanding Fantasy Book. My only problem is that it took me so long to find & read it. There is nothing left out of this book it has it all. Sorcery, violence, love story, assassination plots, dragons (More Dragons Please & I think they are coming) & much much more. The main character Thorgrine journey from the start as a commoner to the rise inside the Kings family is a dramatic story that you just cannot put down until the end.

Book 1 of "Sorcerers Ring"To: all fantasy lovers The start of a journey witch ends up being so long it takes up 17 books and from ( and I speak for all who love fantasy) just that fact alone it would be a want to read but with the added in drama of running away army's love lies and heart brake with of corse a main character would is part Druid and can literally kill a beast with nothing but a fricking slingshot and superhuman strength and did I forget to mention that there is literally a flipping empiere who wants to kill them all ( hint of future) Darn why must this thing have so many cliff hangers - A True Fantasy Lover.Score: 5/5

Really?Good story. Interesting Characters. Too much "He loves Me...He Loves Me Not". Why can't characters just talk to each other and listen to what is being said instead of all the childish, stick the fingers in your ears, walk off in a huff stupid behavior? Yes, in real life there are times that answers are not readily available....but at every turn? There would never be a happy ending if people really acted this way. The relationship between Thor and Gwen is like a "Carrot on a Stick"......Come on, Come on, Come on......Go away!.Score: 3/5

Bad.The other 1 star ratings sum it all up. Terribly written. Also, there's a ton of random events.

There's a lot more examples of this too....Score: 1/5

Bad writingThe writing is so poor that it distracts from any redeeming value of the story...which isn't much to begin with. Over used words and phrases. Incorrectly used words. Poor grammar. Inexplicable discrepancies in the story line. Odd descriptions of things like pregnancy that make it apparent the author did zero research. The author even uses the wrong character's name a couple of times. Sad. I have to believe that these reviews with five stars are fake because I can't imagine that even a young kid would not be offended by the ignorance and near illiteracy exhibited here..Score: 1/5

There's promise, but...I love a good fantasy tale, and this series has the beginnings of a good one, but they are rushed and HORRIBLY edited. If wretched grammar and spelling can ruin a book for you, don't read these books. Plus, the author repeats themes and phrases to death. If I read, "She/he could feel the power of her/his father rising up in her/him," one more time, I'm going to lose my mind. Someone should have spent a little more time and money on a GOOD editor, if one was sought at all. Missing words, bad grammar, bad punctuation, incorrect use of words...they all detract so horribly from the story that it makes this whole series a cringe-worthy read and overshadow the truly great and original ideas that this author has..Score: 3/5

Predictable and shallowDon't bother reading past book 1. The same scenarios are repeated over and over, with the same predictable outcome. Characters are developed thinly, battles are repetitive. The rest of the series is "copy and paste". Lame.Score: 2/5

EhHonestly, I was very disappointed. The characters are all one dimensional and I could only get myself to care for the characters the author wanted me to hate. The only two gay characters have traits the author considers "unmanly" and speak in high pitched, effeminate voices. The book fails the bechdel test (although there are two named female characters, one of them has yet to be shown, and the only conversation between two women is about a boy). The king is supposed to be "progressive" and "loving" but he regularly calls two of his sons disappointments and forces the gay son to marry a woman. The main character always does what's right and never seems to struggle which makes for an uncompelling read. The book does get two stars for creativity and world building..Score: 2/5
