Publisher's Summary

Here are two bestselling novels which offer a great introduction to the Kings and Sorcerers series. Kings and Sorcerers tells the epic coming of age story of Kyra, 15, who dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. She struggles to understand her special skills and mysterious inner power, and comes to realize she is different than the others.

But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her only to wonder. When Kyra comes of age and her father tries to wed her off, she refuses and journeys out on her own, into a dangerous wood, where she encounters a wounded dragon—and ignites a series of events that will change the kingdom forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, Kings and Sorcerers 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.

Infantile drivel

I rarely post reviews, but this was just insultingly bad. Everything about it, from the bland and derivative world, to the aggressively Mary-Sue protagonist, to the shockingly uninspired secondary characters, completely fails to be even remotely competent. It reads like a hodgepodge of fantasy tropes thrown into a blender with no regard for how to fit them together, or make them in any way unique
All this pales, however, when compared to how mind-bogglingly poor the actual writing is. Every time we meet a new character, we're subjected to an endless barrage of poorly-written backstory that somehow manages to be both unoriginal and ridiculous. Nothing is delivered organically; it's all listed right up front in the blandest possible way. The exact same can be said for characters' emotions. There's no subtext, no inferences to be made from their reactions. No, we're treated to a multi-paragraph essay on the fact that this character is mad, and the reasons they're mad, and how angry they are at this because of exactly how it ties into their personality. "Show, don't tell" is the first thing any new author is taught, and this book exemplifies exactly why that's so important.
Finally, it's painfully obvious that no editor has come within a mile of this book. The writing is ambiguous, grammatically incorrect, or just plain nonsensical. Sometimes the subject of a sentence will just change halfway through, or the author will accidentally repeat the beginning of their sentence at the end.
This is not a good book. It's not even a bad book. It's an appalling, ghastly abomination that offends the literary world with its mere existence. I consider it borderline criminal that they're actually charging money for this.

But cheers to the narrator; he did fine.

Disappointed

To get the whole story you have to buy 15 books. Writing keeps reusing the same phrasing over and over.

great book th as t is hard to put down

Book has many t we lists and turns so you never know what horrible creature will appear next. it has a number of characters you follow so when one plot is slow suddenly a whole different plot puts you on the edge of your seat. it is like 4 different books all at once.

Fantastic book

I enjoyed this book. The first book was very good but this one was even better. This book was full of strong and amazing woman. This second book begins the start of the war. Many wonderful charatures. The female warrior, her father, thieves, dragons, her brothers, Wolfe, dogs, war horses. Can't wait to read book three. This b

Medicore to good Story, great narration

I find myself yelling at the narrator throughout this series and seriously disgruntled that it wasn't wrapped up in the first two or three books. Now I find that there are six total. The story line is rather simplistic and trite (I just don't find it weighty enough). I feel like this was a rushed series just to get something out. So much potential, but ideas seem just written down with the gaps filled in. Still, I like the narrator (sorry for yelling at you for poor plot development!) Needs to be written and marketed for a younger audience. It's more their speed.

Close

So close to being really good. Rice created some really great characters, and a decent storyline so far. The first was definitely better than the second, however. I mean the second was literally a long string of cliff hangers without really advancing the story ark much at all. Here’s the thing that really bothers me though. I feel like with minimal effort these stories could be cleaned up too be pretty good. But repetition of the same phrases and descriptions, the excessive amount of ridiculous cliff hangers and some really major plot holes and obvious inconsistencies kind of make them hard to listen to at points. I feel like if Rice for some decent beta readers these could really be made decent. Oh well.
I thought Farrell was excellent

Uninteresting and characters not realistic

Character development was childlike and one dimensional, story line pedantic and uninspired. Don't waste your time unless your just wanting background noise.

Great story, slow pace

I like this story very much. I only wish it didn’t plod along so slowly. It would be much better if all of the foreshadowing were taken out - that gets tedious. The only way I’ve been able to stick with it to the end is by listening as I go to sleep at night - it’s very good for that. I’ll get the next one though, hoping it will keep me awake. It’s still a great story.
