    “Do you trust me Meghan?” 
    His voice was soft, almost pleading. I swallowed and tried hard to discern his expression in the dark. The paltry amount of light reaching this far into the small cavern glinted off his eyes, giving him the appearance of a demon trying to tempt me into doing something evil. 
    “Yes,” I answered, my own voice a mere whisper, “I trust you.” 
    “Good.” 
    He gave my hand a quick squeeze, and then I was pulled forward into the icy abyss that loomed before us . . . 
     
    A year ago, Meghan Elam learned that she was Faelorehn, a being of the Otherworld. Immortal. Now she must juggle her life in the mortal world with the one she has started to build in the Otherworld. However, keeping her identity secret from her friends and family while trying to avoid a wrathful Celtic goddess is no easy task. 
     
    With the help of the intriguing Cade MacRoich, Meghan will learn that not only does she come from a place full of magic and wonder but that she, too, is far more powerful than she ever thought possible.

    “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)
    
    THE GIFT OF BATTLE (Book #17) is the finale of the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)! 
    
    In THE GIFT OF BATTLE, Thor meets his greatest and final challenge, as he quests deeper into the Land of Blood to attempt to rescue Guwayne. Encountering foes more powerful than he ever imagined, Thor soon realizes he is up against an army of darkness, one for which his powers are no match. When he learns a sacred object may give him the powers he needs—an object which has been kept secret for ages—he must embark on a final quest to retrieve it before it is too late, with the fate of the Ring hanging in the balance.
    
    Gwendolyn keeps her vow to the King of the Ridge, entering the tower and confronting the cult leader to learn what secret he is hiding. The revelation sends her to Argon, and ultimately to Argon’s master—where she learns the greatest secret of all, one which may alter the destiny of her people. When the Ridge is discovered by the Empire, the invasion begins and, under attack by the greatest army known to man, it falls on Gwendolyn to defend, and to lead her people on one final, mass exodus.
    
    Thor’s Legion brothers, on their own, face unimaginable risks, as Angel is dying from her leprosy. Darius fights for his life beside his father in the Empire capital, until a surprise twist prods him, with nothing left to lose, to finally tap his own powers. Erec and Alistair reach Volusia, battling their way upriver, and they continue on their quest for Gwendolyn and the exiles, as they face unexpected battles. And Godfrey realizes that he must ultimately make a decision to be the man he wants to be. 
    
    Volusia, surrounded by all the power of the Knights of the Seven, must put herself to the test as goddess and discover if she alone has the power to crush men and rule the Empire. While Argon, faced with his end of days, realizes the time has come to sacrifice himself.
    
    As good and evil hang in the balance, one final, epic battle—the greatest battle of all—will determine the outcome of the Ring for all time.
    
    With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, THE GIFT OF BATTLE 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. THE GIFT OF BATTLE is the longest of all the books in the series, at 93,000 words!
    
    “Action-packed …. Rice's writing is solid and the premise intriguing.”

    Brock Holloway has it all -- incredible good looks, money, friends, a bitchin' car and a promising football career. At least, that's what other people see. Inside, though, Brock is fighting for something he knows he will never have: Unconditional love. As the child of Aphrodite, he is worshiped, admired, wanted - but never loved. 
     
    Zack Duran is a wolverine shifter -- and not a nice guy. Like, seriously NOT a nice guy. His shifter side is always in control, often showing him to be heartless and unfeeling. When Zack is assigned to protect Brock Holloway, he can't believe his crappy luck. As his tactless wolverine tendencies become even more pronounced, his rudeness reaches new heights -- something his friends didn't even think was possible. Eventually, Zack has to battle his shifter personality and his genuine feelings for the beautiful football player. 
     
    A near tragedy shakes him to his core, and Zack can no longer fight the deep feelings he has for Brock. But giving in to his emotions may come at too high a price. A startling secret charges Brock with the nearly impossible task of taming Zack's beast. Is he up to the challenge? Can Zack give him what he needs? And with danger working overtime, can they finally be together as they were intended?

    Horror follows vampire Nico to a new world, and an old horror within her responds; kill it before it kills her. Nico jeopardises everything on a lone, redemptive path rescuing victims of the underworld and hunting the nightmare that created her—a monster only Nico knows is there. 
    A paranormal sci-fi noir. Darquepunk science fiction for the gothic, different, and queer. Gen X, gender fluidity. Polyaphroditic. Cyberpunk. 
    Some sexual content; Mild language; Violence; sexual violence. 
    “Kill first.” 
    Vampire Nico popped from the year 1998 into an Again NewYork airfield, a sudden chrono-immigrant with Mr Bear strapped to her, her switchblade in hand, and no idea how or why she got there. She’s on Darqueworld: an intragalactic society 400 light years from Old Earth, where Other-beings and humans co-exist and vampires are no big deal. Nico can have a normal student life at last and even date a diner waitress she likes. But there’s a darkened spot in her mind, one blanking out her immediate past, and the spectre of Nico's maker haunts her. Only in Again NewYork’s underworld can Nico find what pursues her—and kill it again. 
    “Way to go, Super Nico!” 
    “I am not super,” Nico snapped. 
    “Got it. Stupid nickname. You are Lone Nico and Bear.” 
    Meet Nico Alexikova and Bear: 
    Eighteen years old at death and fifteen years unliving, Nico worked hotel front desk, nightshift, attended universities, and led a quiet life on Old Earth. But unknown circumstances sent her to Darqueworld, and with no memory of her immediate past, she can only rely on herself, Bear, and her knife in a futuristic, spacefaring society with creatures like her—and with women she could care for. 
    Heloise Allen: 
    Tall, dark, and sharply beautiful, she's a vampire chrono-refugee with affluence, connections, and the possible answers to Nico's past—if Nico can trust her. 
    Shayla O'Fey: 
    As seemingly light as Heloise is dark, she's a Lucy's Diner waitress and witch Nico can't help falling for. But Shayla is also a coven's ex-Pistol, their former peacekeeper, and her history with vampires is not kind. 
    Enjoy the Darquepunk Universe: 
    Preternaturals take to the stars, but the gods and goddesses had long gone first, in sentient sky boats, chariots, and Valkyrian ships, to found a planet of quakes, dreams, and monsters. Darqueworld: where spacefarers and chrono-travellers seek answers and riches amid celestial corporations and refugee Other-beings. Weird-matter wielders, shifters, vampires, intragalactic species, bio-mechanical beings, artificial constructs—and mere humans; every adventurer and outcast with a dream or desire, come to Darqueworld for haven or hell.

Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos A SKY OF SPELLS is book #9 in the bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING--which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (Book #1 )! In A SKY OF SPELLS (BOOK #9 IN THE SORCERER’S RING), Thorgrin finally returns to himself and must confront his father once and for all. An epic battle occurs, as two titans face each other, and as Rafi uses his power to summon an army of undead. With the Destiny Sword destroyed, and the fate of the Ring in the balance, Argon and Alistair will need to summon their magical powers to help Gwendolyn’s brave warriors. Yet even with their help, all could be lost if it were not for the return of Mycoples, and her new companion, Ralibar. Luanda struggles to prevail against her captor, Romulus, as the fate of the Shield hangs in the balance. Reece, meanwhile, struggles to lead his men back up the Canyon walls, with Selese’s help. Their love deepens; but with the arrival of Reece’s old love, his cousin, a tragic love triangle and misunderstandings develop. When the Empire is finally ousted from the Ring, and Gwendolyn has her chance for personal vengeance against McCloud, there is great cause to celebrate. As the new Queen of the Ring, Gwen uses her powers to unite both MacGils and McClouds for the first time in history, and to begin the epic rebuilding of the land, of her army, and of the Legion. King’s Court slowly comes back to life once again, as they all begin to pick up the pieces. It is destined to become a more glorious city than even her father ever dreamed of, and in the process, justice finally finds Gareth. Tirus must be brought to justice, too, and Gwen will have to decide what sort of leader she will be. There is a great conflict amongst Tirus’ sons, not all of whom see things the same way, and a struggle for power erupts once again, as Gwen decides if she will accept an invitation to the Upper Isles, thus making the MacGil clan whole once again. Erec is summoned to return to his people in the Southern Isles and see his dying father, and Alistair joins him, as they prepare for their wedding. Thorgrin and Gwendolyn may have wedding preparations in their future, too. Thor becomes closer to his sister, and as all settles down inside the Ring, he finds himself summoned to embark on his greatest quest of all: to seek out his mysterious mother in a faraway land and to find out who he really is. With multiple wedding preparations in the air, with Spring returning, King’s Court rebuilding, festivals afoot, peace seems to settle back onto the Ring. But danger lurks in the most unforeseen corners, and all of these characters greatest tribulations might be yet to come. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A SKY OF SPELLS 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.
