Summary

In a land on the brink of peace—watched jealously by a ruthless cult from across the sea and beset by hidden enemies—five extraordinary humans must serve as sword and shield of the Gods. 
Auraya is one.  
Her heroism saved a village from destruction; now Auraya has been named Priestess of the White. The limits of her unique talents must be tested in order to prove her worthy of the honor and grave responsibility awarded to her. But a perilous road lies ahead, fraught with pitfalls that will challenge the newest servant of the gods. An enduring friendship with a Dreamweaver—a member of an ancient outcast sect of sorcerer-healers—could destroy Auraya's future. And her destiny has set her in conflict with a powerful and mysterious, black-clad sorcerer with but a single purpose: the total annihilation of the White. And he is not alone . . .

    From Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE SORCERER’S RING, comes a riveting new fantasy series.
    
    ONLY THE WORTHY (The Way of Steel—Book 1) tells the epic coming of age story of Royce, 17, a peasant farmer who senses, with his special fighting skills, that he is different from all the other boys in his village. There resides within him a power he does not understand, and a hidden destiny he is afraid to face.
    
    On the day he is to be wed to his one true love, Genevieve, she is stolen away from him. Royce chooses to risk it all to confront the nobles who took her and to try to save his love.  When he fails, he is sentenced to the infamous Red Isle, a barren island of warriors known for turning boys into men. Banished from his homeland, Royce must face trials beyond which he can imagine as he is taught to survive the notorious Pits—the kingdom’s brutal bloodsport. Genevieve, meanwhile, desperate for Royce’s return, is forced to navigate the cruel and conniving world of aristocracy as she finds herself immersed in a world she despises.
    
    Yet as Royce’s powers become stronger and as he learns there is a secret behind the mysterious lineage of his father, he comes to realize that his destiny may be greater than he thought. He begins to wonder at the most terrifying question of all: who is he?
    
    ONLY THE WORTHY weaves an epic tale of friends and lovers, of knights and honor, of betrayal, destiny and love. A tale of valor, it draws us into a fantasy world we will fall in love with, and appeals to all ages and genders. 
    
    Also available as a free download is Morgan Rice’s A QUEST OF HEROES, book #1 in the 17 book fantasy series THE SORCERER’S RING, a #1 bestseller with over 1,000 five star reviews.

    Praise for Foamers:"A worthy addition to the canon of postapocalyptic fiction, and like the best of such books, at its heart it's a frontier novel, brutal and exciting, celebrating individualism and self-determination."--Tim McLoughlin, author of Heart of the Old Country"When a screwed-up flu vaccine mutates much of humanity into mindless beasts, 'Trust your intelligence' becomes the leitmotif of a group of survivors. Fast-moving, violent, and vividly imagined, Foamers creates a dangerous world made disquietingly believable."--David Poyer, author of Tipping PointPart of Akashic's Kaylie Jones Books imprint.Kade and his group of survivors find out the hard way that the end of the world is more populated than they had previously assumed.

With new external threats and internal jealousy--not to mention the growing pack of foamers living on the group's doorstep--the question becomes not just will anyone survive without scars, but will anyone survive at all?The page-turning sequel to the Amazon #1 best-selling thriller Foamers, Strays will leave you questioning everything you think you know about surviving in the modern world.

    The Kur race once had a planet of its own, but somehow it was rendered unviable, either destroyed or desolate, apparently by the Kurs’ own hands. So they searched for a new home and found not one but two suitable planets—planets they set their minds to conquering. But these planets, Earth and its sister planet Gor, the Counter Earth, were not undefended. The Kur attempted their conquest four times, only to be beaten back by the mysterious Priest-Kings, rulers of Gor. As the Kurii lurk deep within an asteroid belt, awaiting the chance to seize their prize, their attention is drawn to a human, Tarl Cabot. Tarl was once an agent of Priest-Kings but is now their prisoner, held captive in a secret prison facility. But what is their interest in Tarl Cabot?   Rediscover this brilliantly imagined world where men are masters and women live to serve their every desire.  Kur of Gor is the 28th book in the Gorean Saga, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    Where does werewolf stop and monster begin? 
    Hunter Green attracts territorial shifters like moths to a porch light. Sick of beating up on pups who don't have the sense to back down from a challenge, the alpha finds peace as a warrior in the human-only military. 
    Unfortunately, his strong inner wolf isn't content defusing bombs and battling sharks. Instead, the beast emerges, nearly tearing the limbs off a poaching shifter before setting its sights on Hunter's human dive mate. 
    No longer able to trust his animal half among defenseless humans, the outcast alpha struggles to reenter shifter society. But will his tenuous grasp on werewolf politics be enough to stand up against backstabbing pack leaders intent upon expunging Hunter's last shred of humanity? 
    This 40,000 word novella is a prequel to USA Today bestselling author Aimee Easterling's "tense, dramatic, sexy, and intriguing" Alpha Underground series.
