Summary

Young Remeya - fosterling and maid-in-waiting to King Xavo's sister - worships the old and forbidden horned god alongside the princess. 
 
A worship made taboo half a millennium ago. Performed still in secret by a few. Quietly tolerated by the king. 
 
Until madness took him, there beside the stone well on the grassy hillside of the castle's outer bailey. 
 
As the king's mind unravels into violence, no one near him remains safe, not even his best beloved. Especially not his best beloved. 
 
Worse, Remeya believes King Xavo's insanity arose from her own mistake. Because she said yes, instead of no. 
 
When life itself hangs in the balance, putting wrong to right is surely past praying for. Or is it? 
 
Epic fantasy in which old beliefs and old loyalties clash with hidden magic in the Middle Ages of J.M. Ney-Grimm's god-touched North-lands. 
 
 
EXCERPT FROM HUNTING WILD 
 
The pebbles of the underground stream bed dug into the soles of her feet, and the chill of the shallow water numbed her toes. 
 
The rough surface of the ceiling sloped down, scraping her back, forcing her to bend, to crouch, to curl enough that she caught her balance with her hands in the wet. 
 
The light faded swiftly. Had she gone far enough? 
 
She paused, eyes adjusting. 
 
The glimmering ripples of the spring's source cast dim flickers against the rocks pressing her down.

    This time the job is personal . . . 
    Tie-in to the series that shows where Ritter was those two missing months after The Change. 
    In and out. Do the job. Renegade Blaze Vincent has survived years with this motto. Barely. Plucked from death’s door and revived repeatedly with curequick, he’s developed an addiction that threatens to destroy everything he’s worked for. 
    Now the Emporium is buying fields around a tiny Portuguese town, and mortals—Blaze’s countrymen—are dying. Blaze and his partner, Kenna Murray, are determined to unravel their enemies’ intentions before the entire town is lost. 
    But things tend to explode when Blaze is around. Literally. And to save his people, he must be willing to take yet one more step over the edge. 
    Please Note: Set Ablaze is not as long as the books from Erin's viewpoint. This tie-in to the series can be enjoyed at any time. However, between The Change (Unbounded Book 1) and The Cure (Unbounded Book 2), Renegade Ritter Langton disappears for two months. Set Ablaze fits between those books in the Unbounded timeline, giving us a glimpse into what Ritter was doing. Keep in mind this novella ISN'T ABOUT RITTER, but tells the story of someone very close to him. Because readers are not made aware of Ritter’s whereabouts until nearly the end of The Cure, readers may better appreciate Set Ablaze after reading the first two books. 
    If you’ve enjoyed the Unbounded series, you will love this extra peek into Ritter’s family. 
    Praise for the UNBOUNDED series: 
    “Excellent and well written!” 
    “I recommend reading the entire series” 
    “Thoroughly enjoyable” 
    “High action and adventure” 
    “Teyla Branton belongs right alongside Patricia Briggs, Kim Harrison, Ilona Andrews, Jennifer Estep, and Kelly Armstrong.”

    “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 MattosThis bundle includes the next three books in Morgan Rice’s #1 Bestselling fantasy series THE SORCERER’S RING (A CRY OF HONOR, A VOW OF GLORY and A CHARGE OF VALOR). These three bestselling novels are all here in one convenient file and offer a great next step deeper into the world of the SORCERER’S RING series. Over 200,000 words of reading, all for an incredible price! It also makes the perfect gift! THE SORCERER’S RING series tells the epic tale of the coming of age of Thorgrin, a special 14 year old boy, the least loved of his father, as he strives to become a warrior in the magical Kingdom of the Ring, and as he learns he has powers, and a destiny, he does not understand. An outsider, he must fight for acceptance as he strives to join the King’s elite Legion, and as he falls in love with the king’s 16 year old daughter. Most of all, he must learn who he really is, why his destiny is so important, and why the entire fate of The Ring depends on him. In Books #4, #5 and #6, the tale continues. In A CRY OF HONOR (Book #4 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor has returned from The Hundred as a hardened warrior, and now he must learn what it means to battle for his homeland, to battle for life and death. The McClouds have raided deep into MacGil territory—deeper than ever before in the history of the Ring—and as Thor rides into an ambush, it will fall on his head to fend off the attack and save King’s Court. In A VOW OF GLORY (Book #5 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor embarks with his Legion friends on an epic quest into the vast wilds of the Empire to try to find the ancient Destiny Sword and save the Ring. Thor’s friendships deepen, as they journey to new places, face unexpected monsters and fight side by side in unimaginable battle. They encounter exotic lands, creatures and peoples beyond which they could have ever imagined, each step of their journey fraught with increasing danger. They will have to summon all their skills if they are to survive as they follow the trail of the thieves, deeper and deeper into the Empire. Their quest will bring them all the way into the heart of the Underworld, one of the seven realms of hell, where the undead rule and fields are lined with bones. As Thor must summon his powers, more than ever, he struggles to understand the nature of who he is. In A CHARGE OF VALOR (Book #6 in the Sorcerer's Ring), Thor continues on his quest, deeper into the Empire, to retrieve the stolen Destiny Sword and save the Ring. As he and his friends meet unexpected tragedy and lose a member of their close-knit group, Thor and his remaining friends become closer than they ever were, learning that they must face and overcome adversity together. Their journey takes them to new and exotic terrains, including the desolate Salt Fields, the Great Tunnel, and the Mountains of Fire, as they face a host of unexpected monsters at every turn. With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, THE SORCERER’S RING 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.Books #7--#13 in the series are now also available, individually and in bundles!and in bundles!
