Excerpt from Rise of the Dragons #books #yalit #fantasy #teasertuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

I just finished Rise of the Dragons by Morgan Rice. It is the first in the Kings and Sorcerers series. Good book, but not a complete story arc, and book two isn’t out yet, so you’ll have to wait to finish the story!

Kyra turned and sprinted into the wood, Leo at her side, determined to make it back to Volis, to alert her father and all her people–if it were not already too late.

Morgan Rice, Rise of the Dragons

Kyra, 15, dreams of becoming a famed warrior, like her father, even though she is the only girl in a fort of boys. As she struggles to understand her special skills, her mysterious inner power, she realizes she is different than the others. But a secret is being kept from her about her birth and the prophecy surrounding her, leaving her to wonder who she really is.

When Kyra comes of age and the local lord comes to take her away, her father wants to wed her off to save her. Kyra, though, refuses, and she 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.

15 year old Alec, meanwhile, sacrifices for his brother, taking his place in the draft, and is carted off to The Flames, a wall of flames a hundred feet high that wards off the army of Trolls to the east. On the far side of the kingdom, Merk, a mercenary striving to leave behind his dark past, quests through the wood to become a Watcher of the Towers and help guard the Sword of Fire, the magical source of the kingdom’s power. But the Trolls want the Sword, too—and they prepare for a massive invasion that could destroy the kingdoms forever.

With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE DRAGONS 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, of 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.

  1. Looks interesting – another book that both my daughter and I would probably enjoy! Thanks for visiting my TT! http://justasecondblog.blogspot.com/2015/03/teaser-tuesdays-march-3-2015.html

  2. I really like the cover! I’m avoiding series right now…especially those that aren’t yet complete. But this looks like a good one for ‘later’! Enjoy!

  4. Sounds good, but I have issues with incomplete story arcs. I like a story to finish in the novel, but leave possibilities open for the next book. Great cover though and the synopsis sounds good. Thanks for coming by Through Raspberry Colored Glasses.

  5. I love the cover and dragons. I would love to befriend a dragon. 🙂
