The #1 Bestselling series!
THE WEIGHT OF HONOR is book #3 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS, a free download)!
In THE WEIGHT OF HONOR, Kyra finally meets her cryptic uncle, and is shocked to discover he is not the man she expected. She embarks on a period of training which will test her stamina and her frustration, as she soon encounters the limits of her power. Unable to summon her dragon, unable to search deep within, and feeling an urgency to help in her father’s wars, Kyra doubts if she will ever become the warrior she thought she was. And when she meets a mysterious boy, more powerful than her, deep in the forest, she wonders what her future really has in store for her.
Duncan must descend the peaks of Kos with his new army and, vastly outnumbered, launch a risky invasion on the capital. If he wins, waiting behind its ancient walls, he knows, will be the old king and his nest of nobles and aristocrats, all with their own agendas, all of them as quick to betray as they are to embrace. Unifying Escalon may, indeed, be harder than freeing it.
Alec, in Ur, must tap his unique skills in the forge to aid the resistance if they have any chance of defending against the looming Pandesian invasion. He is awestruck when he encounters Dierdre, the strongest girl he has ever meet. The time she has a chance to make a stand against Pandesia, and as she bravely faces off, she who wonders if her father and his men will have her back this time.
Merk finally enters the tower of Ur, and is stunned by what he discovers. Initiated into its strange codes and rules, he meets his fellow Watchers, the toughest warriors he has ever encountered, and he finds that earning their respect will not be easy. With an invasion looming, they must all prepare the tower; yet even all its secret passageways may not keep them safe from the betrayal lurking from within.
Vesuvius leads his Troll nation across a vulnerable Escalon, devastating the land, while Theos, enraged at what becomes of his son, is on a rampage himself, and will not stop until all of Escalon is aflame.
With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, THE WEIGHT OF HONOR 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 #4 in the series--A FORGE OF VALOR--is now also available for pre-order!
“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.”

The Weight of Honor (Kings and Sorcerers, #3) Reviews
I am generously giving this series 3 stars because the story itself is good... but oh baby jeebus on a stick is it rough to read with its abysmal lack of editing and every character-section ending with a CLIFFHANGER! I am also getting really tired of the deus ex machina 'saves'.
Much better than the previous one. Perfect? No, but the story becomes more and more captivating, we discover that the principal characters are not exempt from death after all, and new mysteries come our way while old ones are not always uncovered. Well there is still the annoying repetitions, but really I found I could ignore them in this book.
PS: what is the eye color of Kyle? Yellow, gray, crystal blue... ?
A great story line but......
I wanted to immerse myself in this series but find that I am getting more frustrated with each book. The reasons are redundancy and storyline mistakes. The story line mistakes really bother me and throws off my concentration, especially when they are involving pertinent parts of the book. You can't say one one page that Duncan has a few hundred soldiers then the next page say as he and his soldiers lay down their weapons you can hear the sound of thousands of swords hitting the ground. If the redundancy from chapter to chapter as the story changes characters and the storyline mistakes aren't bothersome I say read this series, I do enjoy the charecters.
Help me, I'm drowning in horrible editing, gross repetitive narrative, and TSTL characters. All of them. I can't think of a single character in this series that has at least the intelligence of a dried bucket of paint.
We've reached the "everything goes to shit" stage of the series. And it's kind of laughable, how much eyerolling I'm doing. If I ever denied that I'm addicted to reading, the fact that I'm reading this proves it. There's nothing else on my kindle, and I'm on vacation in the middle of the mountains, with no Internet. It's either finish this series or read the label of my shampoo over and over.
I was lucky enough to have been given this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Yes, it could do with better editing but it is still great storytelling.
Its cast of characters each play a role in the overall story and gradually it is revealed. There are many battles, magical moments and mysteries yet to be solved.
Kyra's part is the most interesting and maybe the most important, though the rest of the characters have their own importance to the plot. I like how it all comes together.
A fast-paced and enjoyable read.
