From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new epic fantasy series: Rise of the Dragons (Kings and Sorcerers—Book 1).
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.

Once started unable to stop listening.
I've listened to more than several fantasy scribes on Audible but this one caught my imagination with both hands. The characters , the dragon
( I love dragons) all seemed to pull you into their space and time.
I'm not a newbie at science fiction and fantasy (I'm 62) but to be able to sit and listen to a quality story and enjoy the narration by a voice that in some episodes has a Burton like sound I'm finding it very difficult to turn it off and sleep. Looking forward to the next book which I've already purchased . If possible I would give a rating of 7 stars. I'm loving it.

Starts off well, but then falls into simplisticity
I enjoyed the beginning, I thought the premise and characters were nicely set up. However, the story increasingly makes use of clichés and unbelievable subplots at the expense of sufficient complexity. By the time the girl meets Theos, I felt like switching off. I have made it to the end but am unlikely to look at the next book in the trilogy.

An Amazing Surprise
I wasn't expecting much of this book, but then the plot, the characters and magic, it all surprise me. We still have many many questions to be answered on the next books of the series but that's okay. Morgan Rice make you sympathize easily with her characters and her plot pull you in. There's not a single boring part in this book and... I'm eager for the next one :)

This is an excellent sword and sorcery tale. I was fully engaged from the start and I can't wait for the next in the series. I hope that's not to far off. I love Morgan Rice's Sorcerers Ring series too, so I'm not suprised that this would be just as great as those books. Wayne Farrell is an excellent narrator and a perfect fit for this story. i highly recommend this one.
