Summary

'“Say what you like about the lack of company,” said Myles, clearly trying to lighten the mood. "But you’ve got to admit this is better than being shot at.”' 
An unidentified ocean, the 4th Century: Sirel and Myles are on the run. Chased by dark figures that seek to hurt them and their loved ones, the two childhood friends have fled across the sea, hoping for a better life.  
Then salvation comes their way, and Sirel thinks they are free at last. 
But as they look deeper, both Sirel and Myles fear that they might have fled one nightmare only to find themselves caught in another one. One where this time, they have no means of escape.

    It’s dangerous to get too close to one of those damn Longknife.  So Senior Chief Agent in Charge Foile volunteers to get too damn close to the whole family of Longknifes.  It seemed like a good idea at the time.  Kris Longknife feared the survival of the entire human race might hang on what her Grampa Al did next – but she couldn’t figure out what he was up to.  After a career in the Wardhaven Bureau of Investigations, Foile was good at finding out what others wanted to keep hidden. 
    Exactly why he found himself volunteering, he’d never know, but soon he was spending his annual leave digging into what the powerful Longknife family wanted hidden and up to his neck in trouble of every kind. 
    Note to reader.  This story takes place in the middle of Kris Longknife - Furious. 
    Note about cover photo.  This is a file photo of Kris and Nelly when she was in college on the political stump for her father’s campaign.  For the latest photo of Kris, check out Kris Longknife - Defender.

    “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. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”—Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “[An] entertaining epic fantasy.” —Kirkus Reviews (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “The beginnings of something remarkable are there.” —San Francisco Book Review (regarding A Quest of Heroes) A JOUST OF KNIGHTS is Book #16 in the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)—a free download with over 500 five star reviews on Amazon! In A JOUST OF KNIGHTS, Thorgrin and his brothers follow Guwayne’s trail at sea, pursuing him to the Isle of Light. But as they reach the ravaged isle and the dying Ragon, all may be just too late. Darius finds himself brought to the Empire capital, and to the greatest arena of them all. He is trained by a mysterious man who is determined to forge him into a warrior, and to help him survive the impossible. But the capital arena is unlike anything Darius has seen, and its formidable foes may be too intense for even he to conquer. Gwendolyn is pulled into the heart of the family dynamics of the royal court of the Ridge, as the King and Queen beg her for a favor. On a quest to unearth secrets that can change the very future of the Ridge and save Thorgrin and Guwayne, Gwen is shocked by what she discovers as she digs too deep. Erec and Alistair’s bonds deepen as they sail further upriver, into the heart of the Empire, determined to find Volusia and save Gwendolyn—while Godfrey and his crew wreak havoc within Volusia, determined to avenge their friends. And Volusia herself learns what it means to rule the Empire, as she finds her precarious capital embattled from all sides. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A JOUST OF KNIGHTS 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. “A spirited fantasy ….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.” —Midwest Book Review (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “A quick and easy read…you have to read what happens next and you don’t want to put it down.” —FantasyOnline.net (regarding A Quest of Heroes) “Action-packed …. Rice's writing is solid and the premise intriguing.” —Publishers Weekly (regarding A Quest of Heroes)

    Siren Willows was nine when she first discovered that not only was she not human but mostly likely evil, and when she sang, her song could bring an immediate fiery death to those around her. At sixteen, after holding her songs at bay for years, Siren breaks and sings once again. As it turns out, Siren is part phoenix as well—a long line of mythical beings called to protect their veiled land, Atara, from evil. 
    Her newfound friends decide to help her discover what other secrets her blood holds. Soon, they realize someone else must have heard Siren's song and is hiring monsters to assassinate her. With two childlike wisps as her guardians, she sets off on a perilous mission, leading Siren and company on an adventure of a lifetime into a hidden world of magic. 
    Siren never feels more whole than when she sings. If she can't find out what she is before someone discovers her secret abilities—which could wipe out all mythical creatures—it won't only be mysterious strangers she will have to worry about. The very phoenix she has come to care for just might call for her death.
