Mythica: A Quest for Heroes - Trailer

Apparently not, since everything looked exactly the same as it does in the light of our one sun. Travelling was fascinating in this book.

Yet, on the sixth day of the story, when the Knight Eric must leave to go on a search for a wife, Thor says that he will accompany Eric to the first Southern Crossing; because, he comes from far south.

It takes them half a day to ride on galloping horses to the first crossing. In the book it is described that the capital is more in the centre of the Kingdom which is circular.

The canyon runs around the whole land. When Thor goes on canyon duty, it somehow takes them only an afternoon to walk to the canyon Mar 03, Dawn rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , series-to-read-in-order , clean-read , bad-reviews , virgin-heros , heros-i-love , cliffhanger , some-romance , taking-a-chance-on-this , both-mcs-virgins.

Took a chance anyway and found that I enjoyed it. Do not go into this book expecting a tale of epic fantasy, amazing world building, major conflict or complex characters.

This book is a perfect low angst, sweet, entertaing read. I rated it based on my personal enjoyment and did not attempt to compare it to other more prominent writers of epic fantasy, nor should you because it is not that type of book.

I really like the characters. Thor is just so sweet and honorable. Reese also honoarble and Thors best friend.

Gwen, Thors love, is sweet, feisty and strong. The theme is typical, but to me it never grows old. A young poor boy who has low self esteem finds he and his destiny are far greater than he ever imagined.

Yes there are issues.. Yes, the actions of some are unrealistic.. Like the King thinking Thor attempted to poison him. Why would he think that?

Thor was the one to prevent it! If he really wanted to poison the King he wouldn't have done anything!

The biggest mistake the author made was to make the villian homosexual. I think that pissed off alot of people. It made me feel a little uncomfortable as well, but I don't believe the author was attacking homosexuals.

I think it was done for a purpose to the plot. The villian hates women, and is gay.. It is a stretch, but seriously I don't think the author is trying to bad mouth gays..

Well anyway, even still, the author seems to have slit their own throat with that I think. So one has to kinda let a few things slide..

I was in the rare mood to do that. What I loved most was the fact that Thor wasn't a manwhore and remained innocent, waiting for Gwen.

I have started the second book, which is KU I think.. Overall I like it, but it is clearly not for everyone. Drinking and alcohol. Brothel scene no sex.

Romance peeps: Hero and heorine are virgins. Thor's friends force him, while drunk to go with a whore in a brothel.

He didn't want to. He wanted to save himself for Gwen. His last thought was he was going to do everything possible to not be with the whore We find out later that he wasn't with the whore.

He threw up and passed out.. View all 21 comments. Jun 02, Tobias Gavran added it. I give to you, the story of Thor McLeod. Spoilers might occur!

Queue: Princes of the Universe by Queen You'd think this guy would excrete lightning bolts, but you'd be wrong.

He's just an all-out Gary Stu! The setting Gary lives in the Ring, a circular patch of earth surrounded by the Canyon. The ring is divided in two: West and East.

King MacGil has a sword One day, someone will grab the sword because nobody can hoist it and defeat the savages, and there will be no more wars.

The main character Gary has a bit of a bible motif to him in my opinion. He begins as a shepherd… He wields a sling… He gets extra juice when he prays?

Religion seems to have no incidence whatsoever in this world. And here I thought the Celtic faith was polytheistic, silly me!

Gary has always dreamt of becoming a real boy a member of the Silver, the elite royal force. But first, he has to become a member of the Legion.

He looks nothing like his siblings. His brothers mock him. His father despises him. And I have no idea what his father is… Gary keeps sheep for a living.

His brothers however are equipped with the finest weapons, and train every day, and are meant to enter the legion.

I mean… Before Gary was born, who kept the sheep? Anyway… Picture Cinderella with swords! But Gary is a very special snowflake.

He will just hit about anything with his sling. Oh, and he has never-seen before strength and the power of healing and he meets the royal druid out of nowhere because one of his sheep wondered in the Darkwoods and… Spare me!

I mean… The Ring people must be cursed cowards because it seems so incredible this kid is a tiny bit stubborn. Do other people in the army stabs their companions or what?

Not to mention the fact that he went alone and without support, only to get his ass beaten to the ground and saved by a better man… He gets rewarded for being a careless, reckless idealist.

Getting yourself killed is bravery! The message Oh, my… This part is broken in my opinion. I want to slap the cursed Druid in the face. I want to cut his beard with an axe like that of a certain Maester.

But it is up to you to choose it. No Destiny. No Future. What is punk may never die! King MacGil decides who his successor will be.

You will make genuine decisions. Of course… Stewardship? Who needs to care about gold? Who needs to care about war plans?

Who needs to know what might make people revolt or stab you in the back? Good plan, MacGil! Good job, even. Overall I will not rate this book because I also write and I think the star-rating-system is probably used in algorithms and whatnots.

If I were to rate it, it would be a single star, however. Major spoiler: This book has neither a proper plot, neither a proper ending! Oct 18, Misha Husnain Ali rated it did not like it.

Good things about this book: 1. The plot is interesting and moves forward at a fast pace. Bad things about this book: 1. The plot can be a little contrived at times and a bit predictable if you have read any fantasy books before.

Holy shit, does this book need the services of a decent editor. Some instances of modern words pulled me right out of the story, such as "crap" noun and some instances of missing words refused to parse "in that way she was like her missing word brother Roderick".

The author seems to be enamoured of certain one word summaries of characters to create a more vivid picture in the reader's mind. In one instance, slovenly is used so many times in a single paragraph to refer to a shady merchant that I found myself facepalming.

The characters are archetypes of fantasy. The good and benevolent and handsome King has multiple children who may inherit: an illegitimate eldest son another very good looking young man who is described tediously frequently as the finest man I have ever known, the schrewd, manipulative and scheming second son predictably his features resemble those of a weasel who expects to inherit but is not shrewd and clever enough to hide his shrewd and manipulative nature from anyone he is also gay, of course , the beautiful and wilful younger daughter of the King we all know where this is going and the youngest son who immediately befriends a common boy.

I've deliberately left out an elder daughter who is only used as a plot point because her marriage kicks off the exciting events, and a drunkard lout son who we never understand anything about except that he is unpleasant.

The animals. In the real world if you find a random animal or one is gifted to you as a pet, you do not "form a deep and immediate spiritual bond" with the creature.

In this universe, apparently, you can only stumble across animals that want to kill you or ones that want to form a spiritual bond with you.

Oh, and all animals are apparently rare, except chooks and boars. Last but not least: our hero, Thor. I'll assume I don't need to explain why naming your main character Thor is mildly silly.

Thor is what I have come to recognize in fantasy novels as the "Fine Young Man" archetype. Everyone he meets will think he is a fine young man and embodies all the good qualities necessary for the situation.

He will prove himself bold and loyal in combat situations, having a keen eye to foil an assassination attempt when no other more capable person in the group notices said assassin, he is appropriately enigmatic and handsome so as to capture the eye of the predictably interested princess, he has a mysterious gift that allows him to save the life of a knight and so the King adopts him WTF?

Will get to this later , he is sufficiently honorable to protest keenly when steered towards excessive drink and prostitutes, etc.

It seems the hero can do no wrong, aside from constantly wondering why the rest of his comrades in the training program hate him. Here's a hint: you did not get selected and then essentially shoved your way in and got admission by unfair means.

Convenient but nonsensical plot points. Some really inorganic developments in the plot which make sense only because in typical fantasy fashion, you know what should be coming up next happen.

Thor takes immediate liking to no less than ten people in this book. This is possible because handsome people in this world are always good and anyone described as an unfavorable animal weasely, as in the case of the manipulative prince or evil-looking I shit you not, people are described as "evil-looking" are immediately identified as villains.

There is a sword in the stone very original and only people from the King's line of descendants can try to lift it. Thor also has prophetic and strangely literal dreams, which serve as convenient reasons for him to should about danger, have nobody believe him and then be vindicated later on.

Summary: The story, despite some silliness, kept me engaged. Perhaps a more seasoned fantasy reader would have flung the book away by now, but I kept going so I will read the next one in the series.

However, I wonder why a writer who has published fourteen books in this series so far never thought to go back and edit the earlier ones or at least fix the very obvious problems.

Dec 21, David rated it did not like it. I got this book free from the Amazon store, and I can say that it wasn't even worth the cost of the electricity it took to download.

The multiple spelling errors, missing words and generally sloppy editing were enough to set my teeth on edge while reading, however I have read some truely terribly edited books, and may have been able to stomach these issues if not for the lack of an engaging or even original plot.

Especially the king, at the end of the book. Truely brain meltingly, terrible writing. How this author has managed to have reviews from Allegra Skye which compares it to "the best of J.

Rowling, J. Tolkien, George R. Martin and Rick Riordan" is actually unfathomable. I fear money has changed hands for such a foul, misleading lie to have been perpetuated.

Mar 11, Kareem rated it did not like it. I thought something must have been fishy when I saw that Google Play gave it away for free.

Turns out I was right. And it wasn't even expanded upon, just vaguely hinted at. The first few chapters were actually pretty promising I decided to ignore the whole "two suns" thing and I genuinely wanted to find out what was going to happen.

Thorgrin is obviously a sorcerer of som I thought something must have been fishy when I saw that Google Play gave it away for free.

Thorgrin is obviously a sorcerer of some kind, but he desperately wants to be a warrior. So how was this going to be worked out over the course of the book?

Will he go on a completely different path where he will learn about sorcery from the druid whose name escapes me at the moment? Will he find a way to integrate his dream of being a soldier with his strange affinity with magic?

Will he go on a spectacular journey with other people who he will be able to call his friends and comrades in arms, as the title suggests?

He and just about every other character are just going to ignore the fact that he can literally bend reality with his mind. Instead, he's going to focus on his dream of becoming a soldier, which is probably one of the only things I can give him credit for, except he acts as if his magical side doesn't even exist for majority of the book.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I find that very strange considering, oh, I don't know, he was adopted into the royal family because of his use of magic to save a knight and stop a war from breaking out!

And since I'm on the subject, why did the King so readily adopt Thor even though his knights on the border apparently do things a bajillion times as dangerous every day?

I also find annoying that after the chapter his adoption took place in, everyone in the world completely forgets or something.

Especially Thorgrin. Does he not realize that he's technically going out with his own sister, adopted as she may be? Does Reese not realize this?

Now that I'm done ranting about the plot holes that bothered me the most, let me move on to the characters.

Thorgrin seemed like a good character in the making in the beginning of the book. He' a morally good character and is willing to get along with anyone, to the point where he turns people who hates his guts to his friends.

He has a dream that he needs to achieve, and has steadfast will. When he misses out and gets rejected in the opportunity of a lifetime, he goes on to create his own.

After the point of joining the Legion though really? The point of a Legion is to show that there are many, so why are there only like 30 or so?

He seems to bumble through the entire book with almost everything being handed to him on a plate so he could be totally confused about how everything is happening to him.

And can the reader blame him? Everything just seems to work out to well for Thor barring the last 6 pages or so of the book.

Reese could have easily been my favorite character in the book. He wasn't. He straight up had no real personality besides being morally good, had no past actions to define him, and didn't do much except do his best to be Thor's servant.

I know the author was trying to establish a best-friend relationship, but it's so one sided in that Reese did everything for Thor that it just got annoying.

The same goes for O'Connely, as he basically seemed to be a clone of Reese. And then there's both the King and Gwendolyn. Supposedly, they are both kind and smart people.

However Gwendolyn just acts so insanely shallow whenever she is with Thor it's not even comical. Not even a little bit.

It just seems so out of character for her based on the description of her personality at the beginning of the book. Speaking of out of character, whenever the book wasn't in the perspective of either Gwendolyn or the King, they were both acting extremely out of character.

Case in point: the King is kind and decently smart. He adopted Thor. He trusts Thor. He knows that Thor has special abilities.

The druid still can't remember his name tells him that he will die soon. Thor warns the King of a vision he had of the King dying.

Not only does the King not believe him, he snaps at him and has the guards push him away. Thor then stops the King from dying by poison.

By all logic the King should be happy. But instead, he listens to words of his son Gareth who he openly doesn't trust , gets really angry and immediately locks Thor up for apparently knowing that the drink was poisoned.

Alright I'm done ranting on the characters. There's so much more but I'm kind of tired. I won't even get started on the grammar. It had many plot holes, no definite problem past the first few chapters, extremely shallow characters I've honestly read fan fictions in which new characters made up by the fan author had a lot more depth , and an unengaging storyline that leaves people disconnected even during the climax.

Don't read it unless you enjoy reading terrible books. View 1 comment. Nov 30, Immanuel Jegan rated it it was ok.

This book was terrible! I was initially not going to be so mean in my review, but it did something at the end that was really unacceptable.

I'll get to that in a bit. Firstly, the plot started off fine. The main character seemingly has every going his way. Runs away from home, with no food or water and gets to where he wants to go with no problem.

He gets magic powers that no one else has. Is able to This book was terrible! Is able to perform heroic feats and receives rewards the whole time.

That if you're not lucky or blessed in life you can't aspire to greatness? The characters that actually worked hard to gain their abilities don't receive much screen time.

Unjustly so, considering the length of the book. Lastly, the author pulls a cliffhanger at the end. There's a right way of doing a cliffhanger, and simply implying that the main character gets thrown into jail just doesn't cut it.

There's no scene of him rotting and contemplating what would happen in an epilogue with hints of what's to come.

Just a simple getting grabbed by the guards and being punched in the face. It reads like there was meant to be more, but someone decided to just cut it off right there!

In the end, this is just the literary version of fast food. The plot moves fast and is filled with exciting things happening in hopes of getting you addicted to the rush.

At the end, you just feel like you've ate something bad and unhealthy. View all 8 comments. Jan 02, Toya rated it it was amazing. I loved every page of this novel.

View 2 comments. Jan 30, Vito Gutilla rated it did not like it. Just wow. Forgive me; I have to take a minute here. I have to rant for a sec.

Bear with me. The Rant It baffles me how a book this poorly written, derivative, unimaginative, and just plain bad could have sold so many copies.

So, so, so many copies. It simply defies understanding to me. Here I am trying to be an author myself, slaving away at my own fantasy novel while trying to make the characters deep, compelling, unique individuals, painst Please Do Not Pay Money For This Here I am trying to be an author myself, slaving away at my own fantasy novel while trying to make the characters deep, compelling, unique individuals, painstakingly handcrafting a plot that's hopefully original and fresh when apparently all I have to do is take a generic hero's quest storyline ooh, that'd make a good title, derrrr , populate it with cardboard cutout tropes with painted-on personalities, and have them run around doing generic fantasy crap in a completely and utterly reactionary manner.

Then, apparently, I could just sit back and wait for the dough to roll in. And don't give me that "but it's written for kids" argument I've seen so many times in the comments here.

It's bad even for a children's book. And there's some pretty graphic violence here, not to mention a very cliche, negatively presented homosexual relationship, which takes some maturity to wrap your head around and understand properly.

This is not a book for kids. Maybe young adults and tweens. While it may not be fair to compare them to a self-published author, you can indeed compare their target audience.

Therefore, you can't tell me this was meant for children I mean I can see how they'd be the only ones to actually think it's good, but I don't think it was meant for them.

By the way "trying" is the key word up there. I know firsthand that writing is really hard. Nobody is debating that.

The only reason I mention this is that I have something against a writer who is ok with her books containing grievous spelling and grammatical errors in her work at the time of publication.

I have a problem with people paying money for something so frighteningly bad when there are other books and authors out there that deserve the money so much more.

If it were simply a first draft because that's basically what it is , I wouldn't blame Ms. I wouldn't consider it an affront to fiction and fantasy.

I would probably pat her on the head and say "Wow, Morgan, you've got a lot of potential here. It just needs to cook some more.

Go back and write a few more drafts. This is what she released. It's the equivalent of a game developer releasing a game while it's still a beta version before releasing a patch to fix it AFTER people have paid good money for it.

It's simply inexcusable. Ok, rant over. The Review Well, the book is bad, as I've mentioned. It's really bad. This chiefly comes from a few different core issues, though pretty much everything about it is pretty poorly executed.

Let's look at what may very be the biggest problem with it: characters. Characters Well, the only character I really want to talk about is the protagonist, Thor.

I mean, all the characters are basically soulless facsimiles of overdone fantasy tropes, but Thor was by far the worst offender.

Maybe I'll talk about the others a little bit too, but the problem can really be summed up with Thor. Thor is a fourteen-year-old shepherd boy from a small village in the hill country of a land called The Ring.

He wants more than anything at the outset of the story to join The Legion, which is basically the army, and eventually the Silver, which is the King's elite fighting force of some sort.

This is literally his only character trait, the only thing he wants or cares about in life at the outset of the story.

Well, he doesn't even know, as he tells the princess later on in the story. He literally never thought about it, apparently.

He just wanted to join the Legion because Anyway, he is of course hated and mistreated by his three elder brothers and his father.

We don't really know. He just is. They're overdone for a reason, and that reason is that they work. The hero's quest story line, the wise old wizard, the conniving, evil prince.

They're all compelling tropes. They can make for really great characters when the writing actually portrays them in a three-dimensional, compelling way.

It's just that in this story, the combination of tropes and poor execution makes it a double whammy of bad. Thor is a completely reactionary character, meaning that he never does anything unless acted upon by an outside force.

Even the times when he is proactive, it's either because somebody made him do it or it is quickly thwarted by the first obstacle placed in his way.

That said, whenever he IS thwarted, the problem persists for all of two seconds before something pops out of nowhere and helps him overcome it, whether that be magic that is out of his control or a valiant knight saving his sorry hide.

Also, he is perpetually confused. Every single time he encounters a new situation, whether it be something as complex as the king's court politics or as simple as a freaking jousting match, he "doesn't understand" what's going on.

My goodness, the number of times that phrase or some variant of it was recycled drove me absolutely nuts. His only real skill is that he can throw a stone pretty well from his sling and apparently a spear too, out of nowhere , but that's never enough to save him.

He'd be dead a million times over if magic hadn't saved him every time out of nowhere. Let's talk about that. The magic system in this book exists solely to get the protagonist out of a jam.

He literally understands nothing about how it works, only that in any sort of stressful situation, it pops out of nowhere and saves the day in whatever way it needs to do so, whether that means giving him super strength, telekinesis, or anything else.

He gets his powers out of nowhere while fighting a wild beast at the very beginning of the story and then goes on his merry way as if nothing happened.

He uses it in the middle of a crowded jousting arena, seen by hundreds of people, but then nobody ever mentions it again.

He just goes on being a squire and training with the legion without even the court wizard talking to him about his amazing magical abilities, even though the wizard himself claims that Thor is even more powerful than he is.

Thor is immediately accepted by some characters and immediately hated by other with little to no justification. The king immediately ADOPTS him and loves him like a son never having met him before after his show of magic in the jousting arena and the king's youngest son similarly becomes his best friend immediately after meeting him, as does a random irishman who pops out of nowhere.

On the other end of the spectrum, his father and brothers hate him without justification, as do the majority of his fellow Legion members.

This never fails to confound Thor, who "can't believe" that he's made enemies already and "can't understand" why he's so hated by all of them because of course he's too thick to get that they hate him because he broke into their training ground after assaulting a guard in order to join them even though he wasn't selected, but is then immediately accepted by the king's sons even though the general in charge of training is against it.

But the prince insists they're just jealous of him and they're a bunch of meany-heads. This is another one of the big problems with this character.

It seems like we're supposed to identify with him, to sympathize with his belief that he's "special" and "not like the others" and as a result is misunderstood.

The only problem with that is that he outright states these things to himself. He believes himself to be above everyone else, that he should receive special, deferential treatment.

Because he wants to be a heroic warrior. We are never given the opportunity to identify with his journey and struggle because he has no goals deeper than a simple military position, no reason given to us why he SHOULD achieve those goals, why we the readers should be cheering for him.

The romance story line is another example of this. He had never expressed much interest in girls before he meets the princess, but immediately upon meeter her, both he and she fall head over heels for one another.

This is somewhat believable on his part, but for her, it is not. At all. Why would she fall for this shy, whiney, bumbling boy who is two years younger than her?

It's just relationship porn for tween boys, what every one of them wishes would happen to them. It's immature and completely unbelievable. There's a way to do that sort of romance the right way.

This is not it. Feb 20, Bryan Nyaude rated it it was amazing. It sort of felt like I was reading an alternate version of the Games of Thrones in the beginning.

The main character could easily pass off as Arya Stark, but as you read on, it begins to build into its own story. Aside from a few grammar errors and editing mistakes, this is a good read.

Apr 29, Kirsty rated it did not like it Shelves: ya-fiction , free-kindle-books. I scream, you scream, we all scream because this book is utterly frustrating.

I have many, many problems with this book. The most glaring is that the novel is just plain dull. The characters are flat, mono-dimensional.

Author relies heavily on telling, and vomiting large chunks of exposition at you. Dialogue is clunky in places, and just strikes me as being "off" in this particular book.

Never heard that I scream, you scream, we all scream because this book is utterly frustrating. Never heard that one before, amirite?

Whilst this plot has been done to death, I am not adverse to it. Heck, there's plenty of enjoyable stories which follow that kind of formula.

Done well - or given a unique spin - cliche plots needn't be awful just because they're cliche. However, "A Quest of Heroes" does not bring anything new to the market.

On top of that, it's not particularly well written, meaning that it's not even one of those stories that you follow along enjoying the ride.

It drags you along; you're not even passionate enough to kick and scream - it's just a kind of "meh" as you go along.

Second, characters: Flat. Flat, flat, flat. What makes Thor a compelling character? He's a perfect "good guy". This is perhaps personal preference, but nothing about this protagonist made me really want to read the next book in the series.

He doesn't really undertake any characteristic growth. His true love Gwendolyn is equally perfect. Their relationship holds no interest.

They have no conflict, and no real spark. It's not a compelling love subplot. Third, the villian: Okay so the main villain in this particular novel in the series is Gareth.

He has no real character development other than being the designated bad guy, angsty evil tyrant prince. I have to say that I personally don't understand why the author felt that it was relevant to make him gay.

It doesn't effect his character development, despite the author making somewhat of a big deal of it in his initial description. Whilst I don't have an issue with the inclusion of LGBT characters, and honestly, would like to encourage such, I don't understand its relevance right here.

This is something I personally hold against the novel, but I will honestly say, that this might be me over thinking things a little.

Mar 04, Joyce rated it did not like it. While I understand this is a book aimed at younger readers, I still found the plot simple and unimagineative.

To call Thor, the main protagonist, a character is an oxymoron as he seemingly has no character at all. Aside from a couple moments of daring, Thor bumbles his way into fame and friendships, while spending the majority of his time asking himself rhetorical questions on long soul searching walks.

This author has seemingly gone out of her way to insult her audience. There was clearly littl While I understand this is a book aimed at younger readers, I still found the plot simple and unimagineative.

There was clearly little editing, the characters and plot are contrived and the foreshadowing is so heavy handed that the twists and turns are about as surprising as the twists and turns on a merry-go-round.

I whole heartedly believe the author was looking to make a buck by throwing together a stew of currently popular story elements from high grossing novels like the Harry Potter series, Game of Thrones, and Lord of the Rings, while sprinkling in plenty of medieval cliches A magic sword?

In short: a total mess, the kind of thing that gives the fantasy genre a bad reputation. Avoid except as something to point and laugh at this book is free on Google Play, presumably to promote the no-doubt numerous sequels.

View all 17 comments. I thought oh this may just be a nice story, a nice little epic fantasy novel. At first I thought that perhaps it was meant for children, around the age of But, in the blurb it does say it is for all ages, and this was confirmed when it was described how it felt to kill a man, and when brothels were visited, and crude jokes were made.

Nope, this book is not for ten year olds. The writing and story just decided to treat me like I was a ten year old The plot starts off by reminding me of the Bible story of David and Goliath.

Sound familiar? Well, it did to me, especially when Thor killed a massive lion-like monsterous creature, partly through his sling-shot.

In any case, although I found that all very funny, I could still deal with it, I mean most books have to come from some idea or another right??

This happens a lot during the book, he somehow miraculously knows who everyone is despite his sheltered background.

Thor then looks for his sheep, finds a lion-like beast eating it, kills the beast half with his sling-shot and half with some magical super strength that suddenly appears.

No one else has ever been able to conquer this fearsome beast, but Thor has. The Sorcerer then reappears and tells him that he should take his destiny into his own hands.

Does this sound corny to you? Well, take that corniness and double it, then you may have an idea of how this book was.

Just because this is a fantasy book, does not mean that you make things unbelievable. The point is not to cringe, then laugh your butt off at how unrealistic and improbable the story is.

Now onto some of the things that really baffled me in the world. This world has two suns; a blue and green one and a red and orange one.

They rise about an hour a part. They are never explained. If you are going to have different suns, then tell me why there is a need for them.

Apparently not, since everything looked exactly the same as it does in the light of our one sun. Travelling was fascinating in this book. Yet, on the sixth day of the story, when the Knight Eric must leave to go on a search for a wife, Thor says that he will accompany Eric to the first Southern Crossing; because, he comes from far south.

It takes them half a day to ride on galloping horses to the first crossing. In the book it is described that the capital is more in the centre of the Kingdom which is circular.

The canyon runs around the whole land. When Thor goes on canyon duty, it somehow takes them only an afternoon to walk to the canyon Mar 03, Dawn rated it really liked it Shelves: fantasy , series-to-read-in-order , clean-read , bad-reviews , virgin-heros , heros-i-love , cliffhanger , some-romance , taking-a-chance-on-this , both-mcs-virgins.

Took a chance anyway and found that I enjoyed it. Do not go into this book expecting a tale of epic fantasy, amazing world building, major conflict or complex characters.

This book is a perfect low angst, sweet, entertaing read. I rated it based on my personal enjoyment and did not attempt to compare it to other more prominent writers of epic fantasy, nor should you because it is not that type of book.

I really like the characters. Thor is just so sweet and honorable. Reese also honoarble and Thors best friend. Gwen, Thors love, is sweet, feisty and strong.

The theme is typical, but to me it never grows old. A young poor boy who has low self esteem finds he and his destiny are far greater than he ever imagined.

Yes there are issues.. Yes, the actions of some are unrealistic.. Like the King thinking Thor attempted to poison him.

Why would he think that? Thor was the one to prevent it! If he really wanted to poison the King he wouldn't have done anything!

The biggest mistake the author made was to make the villian homosexual. I think that pissed off alot of people. It made me feel a little uncomfortable as well, but I don't believe the author was attacking homosexuals.

I think it was done for a purpose to the plot. The villian hates women, and is gay.. It is a stretch, but seriously I don't think the author is trying to bad mouth gays..

Well anyway, even still, the author seems to have slit their own throat with that I think. So one has to kinda let a few things slide.. I was in the rare mood to do that.

What I loved most was the fact that Thor wasn't a manwhore and remained innocent, waiting for Gwen. I have started the second book, which is KU I think..

Overall I like it, but it is clearly not for everyone. Drinking and alcohol. Brothel scene no sex. Romance peeps: Hero and heorine are virgins.

Thor's friends force him, while drunk to go with a whore in a brothel. He didn't want to. He wanted to save himself for Gwen. His last thought was he was going to do everything possible to not be with the whore We find out later that he wasn't with the whore.

He threw up and passed out.. View all 21 comments. Jun 02, Tobias Gavran added it. I give to you, the story of Thor McLeod.

Spoilers might occur! Queue: Princes of the Universe by Queen You'd think this guy would excrete lightning bolts, but you'd be wrong.

He's just an all-out Gary Stu! The setting Gary lives in the Ring, a circular patch of earth surrounded by the Canyon.

The ring is divided in two: West and East. King MacGil has a sword One day, someone will grab the sword because nobody can hoist it and defeat the savages, and there will be no more wars.

The main character Gary has a bit of a bible motif to him in my opinion. He begins as a shepherd… He wields a sling… He gets extra juice when he prays?

Religion seems to have no incidence whatsoever in this world. And here I thought the Celtic faith was polytheistic, silly me!

Gary has always dreamt of becoming a real boy a member of the Silver, the elite royal force. But first, he has to become a member of the Legion.

He looks nothing like his siblings. His brothers mock him. His father despises him. And I have no idea what his father is… Gary keeps sheep for a living.

His brothers however are equipped with the finest weapons, and train every day, and are meant to enter the legion.

I mean… Before Gary was born, who kept the sheep? Anyway… Picture Cinderella with swords! But Gary is a very special snowflake. He will just hit about anything with his sling.

Oh, and he has never-seen before strength and the power of healing and he meets the royal druid out of nowhere because one of his sheep wondered in the Darkwoods and… Spare me!

I mean… The Ring people must be cursed cowards because it seems so incredible this kid is a tiny bit stubborn.

Do other people in the army stabs their companions or what? Not to mention the fact that he went alone and without support, only to get his ass beaten to the ground and saved by a better man… He gets rewarded for being a careless, reckless idealist.

Getting yourself killed is bravery! The message Oh, my… This part is broken in my opinion. I want to slap the cursed Druid in the face.

I want to cut his beard with an axe like that of a certain Maester. But it is up to you to choose it. No Destiny. No Future.

What is punk may never die! King MacGil decides who his successor will be. You will make genuine decisions. Of course… Stewardship?

Who needs to care about gold? Who needs to care about war plans? Who needs to know what might make people revolt or stab you in the back?

Good plan, MacGil! Good job, even. Overall I will not rate this book because I also write and I think the star-rating-system is probably used in algorithms and whatnots.

If I were to rate it, it would be a single star, however. Major spoiler: This book has neither a proper plot, neither a proper ending!

Oct 18, Misha Husnain Ali rated it did not like it. Good things about this book: 1. The plot is interesting and moves forward at a fast pace.

Bad things about this book: 1. The plot can be a little contrived at times and a bit predictable if you have read any fantasy books before.

Holy shit, does this book need the services of a decent editor. Some instances of modern words pulled me right out of the story, such as "crap" noun and some instances of missing words refused to parse "in that way she was like her missing word brother Roderick".

The author seems to be enamoured of certain one word summaries of characters to create a more vivid picture in the reader's mind.

In one instance, slovenly is used so many times in a single paragraph to refer to a shady merchant that I found myself facepalming.

The characters are archetypes of fantasy. The good and benevolent and handsome King has multiple children who may inherit: an illegitimate eldest son another very good looking young man who is described tediously frequently as the finest man I have ever known, the schrewd, manipulative and scheming second son predictably his features resemble those of a weasel who expects to inherit but is not shrewd and clever enough to hide his shrewd and manipulative nature from anyone he is also gay, of course , the beautiful and wilful younger daughter of the King we all know where this is going and the youngest son who immediately befriends a common boy.

I've deliberately left out an elder daughter who is only used as a plot point because her marriage kicks off the exciting events, and a drunkard lout son who we never understand anything about except that he is unpleasant.

The animals. In the real world if you find a random animal or one is gifted to you as a pet, you do not "form a deep and immediate spiritual bond" with the creature.

In this universe, apparently, you can only stumble across animals that want to kill you or ones that want to form a spiritual bond with you.

Oh, and all animals are apparently rare, except chooks and boars. Last but not least: our hero, Thor. I'll assume I don't need to explain why naming your main character Thor is mildly silly.

Thor is what I have come to recognize in fantasy novels as the "Fine Young Man" archetype. Everyone he meets will think he is a fine young man and embodies all the good qualities necessary for the situation.

He will prove himself bold and loyal in combat situations, having a keen eye to foil an assassination attempt when no other more capable person in the group notices said assassin, he is appropriately enigmatic and handsome so as to capture the eye of the predictably interested princess, he has a mysterious gift that allows him to save the life of a knight and so the King adopts him WTF?

Will get to this later , he is sufficiently honorable to protest keenly when steered towards excessive drink and prostitutes, etc. It seems the hero can do no wrong, aside from constantly wondering why the rest of his comrades in the training program hate him.

Here's a hint: you did not get selected and then essentially shoved your way in and got admission by unfair means. Convenient but nonsensical plot points.

Some really inorganic developments in the plot which make sense only because in typical fantasy fashion, you know what should be coming up next happen.

Thor takes immediate liking to no less than ten people in this book. This is possible because handsome people in this world are always good and anyone described as an unfavorable animal weasely, as in the case of the manipulative prince or evil-looking I shit you not, people are described as "evil-looking" are immediately identified as villains.

There is a sword in the stone very original and only people from the King's line of descendants can try to lift it.

Thor also has prophetic and strangely literal dreams, which serve as convenient reasons for him to should about danger, have nobody believe him and then be vindicated later on.

Summary: The story, despite some silliness, kept me engaged. Perhaps a more seasoned fantasy reader would have flung the book away by now, but I kept going so I will read the next one in the series.

However, I wonder why a writer who has published fourteen books in this series so far never thought to go back and edit the earlier ones or at least fix the very obvious problems.

Dec 21, David rated it did not like it. I got this book free from the Amazon store, and I can say that it wasn't even worth the cost of the electricity it took to download.

The multiple spelling errors, missing words and generally sloppy editing were enough to set my teeth on edge while reading, however I have read some truely terribly edited books, and may have been able to stomach these issues if not for the lack of an engaging or even original plot.

Especially the king, at the end of the book. Truely brain meltingly, terrible writing. How this author has managed to have reviews from Allegra Skye which compares it to "the best of J.

Rowling, J. Tolkien, George R. Martin and Rick Riordan" is actually unfathomable. I fear money has changed hands for such a foul, misleading lie to have been perpetuated.

Mar 11, Kareem rated it did not like it. I thought something must have been fishy when I saw that Google Play gave it away for free.

Turns out I was right. And it wasn't even expanded upon, just vaguely hinted at. The first few chapters were actually pretty promising I decided to ignore the whole "two suns" thing and I genuinely wanted to find out what was going to happen.

Thorgrin is obviously a sorcerer of som I thought something must have been fishy when I saw that Google Play gave it away for free.

Thorgrin is obviously a sorcerer of some kind, but he desperately wants to be a warrior. So how was this going to be worked out over the course of the book?

Will he go on a completely different path where he will learn about sorcery from the druid whose name escapes me at the moment?

Will he find a way to integrate his dream of being a soldier with his strange affinity with magic?

Will he go on a spectacular journey with other people who he will be able to call his friends and comrades in arms, as the title suggests?

He and just about every other character are just going to ignore the fact that he can literally bend reality with his mind. Instead, he's going to focus on his dream of becoming a soldier, which is probably one of the only things I can give him credit for, except he acts as if his magical side doesn't even exist for majority of the book.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I find that very strange considering, oh, I don't know, he was adopted into the royal family because of his use of magic to save a knight and stop a war from breaking out!

And since I'm on the subject, why did the King so readily adopt Thor even though his knights on the border apparently do things a bajillion times as dangerous every day?

I also find annoying that after the chapter his adoption took place in, everyone in the world completely forgets or something.

Especially Thorgrin. Does he not realize that he's technically going out with his own sister, adopted as she may be? Does Reese not realize this?

Now that I'm done ranting about the plot holes that bothered me the most, let me move on to the characters. Thorgrin seemed like a good character in the making in the beginning of the book.

He' a morally good character and is willing to get along with anyone, to the point where he turns people who hates his guts to his friends.

He has a dream that he needs to achieve, and has steadfast will. When he misses out and gets rejected in the opportunity of a lifetime, he goes on to create his own.

After the point of joining the Legion though really? The point of a Legion is to show that there are many, so why are there only like 30 or so?

He seems to bumble through the entire book with almost everything being handed to him on a plate so he could be totally confused about how everything is happening to him.

And can the reader blame him? Everything just seems to work out to well for Thor barring the last 6 pages or so of the book.

Reese could have easily been my favorite character in the book. He wasn't. He straight up had no real personality besides being morally good, had no past actions to define him, and didn't do much except do his best to be Thor's servant.

I know the author was trying to establish a best-friend relationship, but it's so one sided in that Reese did everything for Thor that it just got annoying.

The same goes for O'Connely, as he basically seemed to be a clone of Reese. And then there's both the King and Gwendolyn.

Supposedly, they are both kind and smart people. However Gwendolyn just acts so insanely shallow whenever she is with Thor it's not even comical. Not even a little bit.

It just seems so out of character for her based on the description of her personality at the beginning of the book.

Speaking of out of character, whenever the book wasn't in the perspective of either Gwendolyn or the King, they were both acting extremely out of character.

Case in point: the King is kind and decently smart. He adopted Thor. He trusts Thor. He knows that Thor has special abilities. The druid still can't remember his name tells him that he will die soon.

Thor warns the King of a vision he had of the King dying. Not only does the King not believe him, he snaps at him and has the guards push him away.

Thor then stops the King from dying by poison. By all logic the King should be happy. But instead, he listens to words of his son Gareth who he openly doesn't trust , gets really angry and immediately locks Thor up for apparently knowing that the drink was poisoned.

Alright I'm done ranting on the characters. There's so much more but I'm kind of tired. I won't even get started on the grammar.

It had many plot holes, no definite problem past the first few chapters, extremely shallow characters I've honestly read fan fictions in which new characters made up by the fan author had a lot more depth , and an unengaging storyline that leaves people disconnected even during the climax.

Don't read it unless you enjoy reading terrible books. View 1 comment. Nov 30, Immanuel Jegan rated it it was ok.

This book was terrible! I was initially not going to be so mean in my review, but it did something at the end that was really unacceptable.

I'll get to that in a bit. Firstly, the plot started off fine. The main character seemingly has every going his way. Runs away from home, with no food or water and gets to where he wants to go with no problem.

He gets magic powers that no one else has. Is able to This book was terrible! Is able to perform heroic feats and receives rewards the whole time.

That if you're not lucky or blessed in life you can't aspire to greatness? The characters that actually worked hard to gain their abilities don't receive much screen time.

Unjustly so, considering the length of the book. Lastly, the author pulls a cliffhanger at the end. There's a right way of doing a cliffhanger, and simply implying that the main character gets thrown into jail just doesn't cut it.

There's no scene of him rotting and contemplating what would happen in an epilogue with hints of what's to come.

Just a simple getting grabbed by the guards and being punched in the face. It reads like there was meant to be more, but someone decided to just cut it off right there!

In the end, this is just the literary version of fast food. The plot moves fast and is filled with exciting things happening in hopes of getting you addicted to the rush.

At the end, you just feel like you've ate something bad and unhealthy. View all 8 comments. Jan 02, Toya rated it it was amazing.

I loved every page of this novel. Morgan Rice takes the reader on a spectacular journey of magic, sorcery, and suspense. As I read each page, I saw the characters play out their own movie in my mind and didn't want the pages to stop flipping.

View 2 comments. Jan 30, Vito Gutilla rated it did not like it. Just wow. Forgive me; I have to take a minute here. I have to rant for a sec.

Bear with me. The Rant It baffles me how a book this poorly written, derivative, unimaginative, and just plain bad could have sold so many copies.

So, so, so many copies. It simply defies understanding to me. Here I am trying to be an author myself, slaving away at my own fantasy novel while trying to make the characters deep, compelling, unique individuals, painst Please Do Not Pay Money For This Here I am trying to be an author myself, slaving away at my own fantasy novel while trying to make the characters deep, compelling, unique individuals, painstakingly handcrafting a plot that's hopefully original and fresh when apparently all I have to do is take a generic hero's quest storyline ooh, that'd make a good title, derrrr , populate it with cardboard cutout tropes with painted-on personalities, and have them run around doing generic fantasy crap in a completely and utterly reactionary manner.

Then, apparently, I could just sit back and wait for the dough to roll in. And don't give me that "but it's written for kids" argument I've seen so many times in the comments here.

It's bad even for a children's book. And there's some pretty graphic violence here, not to mention a very cliche, negatively presented homosexual relationship, which takes some maturity to wrap your head around and understand properly.

This is not a book for kids. Maybe young adults and tweens. While it may not be fair to compare them to a self-published author, you can indeed compare their target audience.

Therefore, you can't tell me this was meant for children I mean I can see how they'd be the only ones to actually think it's good, but I don't think it was meant for them.

By the way "trying" is the key word up there. I know firsthand that writing is really hard. Nobody is debating that.

The only reason I mention this is that I have something against a writer who is ok with her books containing grievous spelling and grammatical errors in her work at the time of publication.

I have a problem with people paying money for something so frighteningly bad when there are other books and authors out there that deserve the money so much more.

If it were simply a first draft because that's basically what it is , I wouldn't blame Ms. I wouldn't consider it an affront to fiction and fantasy.

I would probably pat her on the head and say "Wow, Morgan, you've got a lot of potential here. It just needs to cook some more. Go back and write a few more drafts.

This is what she released. It's the equivalent of a game developer releasing a game while it's still a beta version before releasing a patch to fix it AFTER people have paid good money for it.

It's simply inexcusable. Ok, rant over. The Review Well, the book is bad, as I've mentioned. It's really bad. This chiefly comes from a few different core issues, though pretty much everything about it is pretty poorly executed.

Let's look at what may very be the biggest problem with it: characters. Characters Well, the only character I really want to talk about is the protagonist, Thor.

I mean, all the characters are basically soulless facsimiles of overdone fantasy tropes, but Thor was by far the worst offender.

Maybe I'll talk about the others a little bit too, but the problem can really be summed up with Thor. Thor is a fourteen-year-old shepherd boy from a small village in the hill country of a land called The Ring.

He wants more than anything at the outset of the story to join The Legion, which is basically the army, and eventually the Silver, which is the King's elite fighting force of some sort.

This is literally his only character trait, the only thing he wants or cares about in life at the outset of the story.

Well, he doesn't even know, as he tells the princess later on in the story. He literally never thought about it, apparently. He just wanted to join the Legion because Anyway, he is of course hated and mistreated by his three elder brothers and his father.

We don't really know. He just is. They're overdone for a reason, and that reason is that they work. The hero's quest story line, the wise old wizard, the conniving, evil prince.

They're all compelling tropes. They can make for really great characters when the writing actually portrays them in a three-dimensional, compelling way.

It's just that in this story, the combination of tropes and poor execution makes it a double whammy of bad.

Thor is a completely reactionary character, meaning that he never does anything unless acted upon by an outside force. Even the times when he is proactive, it's either because somebody made him do it or it is quickly thwarted by the first obstacle placed in his way.

That said, whenever he IS thwarted, the problem persists for all of two seconds before something pops out of nowhere and helps him overcome it, whether that be magic that is out of his control or a valiant knight saving his sorry hide.

Also, he is perpetually confused. Every single time he encounters a new situation, whether it be something as complex as the king's court politics or as simple as a freaking jousting match, he "doesn't understand" what's going on.

My goodness, the number of times that phrase or some variant of it was recycled drove me absolutely nuts. His only real skill is that he can throw a stone pretty well from his sling and apparently a spear too, out of nowhere , but that's never enough to save him.

He'd be dead a million times over if magic hadn't saved him every time out of nowhere. Let's talk about that.

The magic system in this book exists solely to get the protagonist out of a jam. He literally understands nothing about how it works, only that in any sort of stressful situation, it pops out of nowhere and saves the day in whatever way it needs to do so, whether that means giving him super strength, telekinesis, or anything else.

He gets his powers out of nowhere while fighting a wild beast at the very beginning of the story and then goes on his merry way as if nothing happened.

He uses it in the middle of a crowded jousting arena, seen by hundreds of people, but then nobody ever mentions it again.

He just goes on being a squire and training with the legion without even the court wizard talking to him about his amazing magical abilities, even though the wizard himself claims that Thor is even more powerful than he is.

Thor is immediately accepted by some characters and immediately hated by other with little to no justification. The king immediately ADOPTS him and loves him like a son never having met him before after his show of magic in the jousting arena and the king's youngest son similarly becomes his best friend immediately after meeting him, as does a random irishman who pops out of nowhere.

On the other end of the spectrum, his father and brothers hate him without justification, as do the majority of his fellow Legion members. This never fails to confound Thor, who "can't believe" that he's made enemies already and "can't understand" why he's so hated by all of them because of course he's too thick to get that they hate him because he broke into their training ground after assaulting a guard in order to join them even though he wasn't selected, but is then immediately accepted by the king's sons even though the general in charge of training is against it.

But the prince insists they're just jealous of him and they're a bunch of meany-heads. This is another one of the big problems with this character.

It seems like we're supposed to identify with him, to sympathize with his belief that he's "special" and "not like the others" and as a result is misunderstood.

The only problem with that is that he outright states these things to himself. He believes himself to be above everyone else, that he should receive special, deferential treatment.

Because he wants to be a heroic warrior. We are never given the opportunity to identify with his journey and struggle because he has no goals deeper than a simple military position, no reason given to us why he SHOULD achieve those goals, why we the readers should be cheering for him.

The romance story line is another example of this. He had never expressed much interest in girls before he meets the princess, but immediately upon meeter her, both he and she fall head over heels for one another.

This is somewhat believable on his part, but for her, it is not. At all. Why would she fall for this shy, whiney, bumbling boy who is two years younger than her?

It's just relationship porn for tween boys, what every one of them wishes would happen to them. It's immature and completely unbelievable.

There's a way to do that sort of romance the right way. This is not it. Feb 20, Bryan Nyaude rated it it was amazing. It sort of felt like I was reading an alternate version of the Games of Thrones in the beginning.

The main character could easily pass off as Arya Stark, but as you read on, it begins to build into its own story.

Aside from a few grammar errors and editing mistakes, this is a good read. Apr 29, Kirsty rated it did not like it Shelves: ya-fiction , free-kindle-books.

I scream, you scream, we all scream because this book is utterly frustrating. I have many, many problems with this book. The most glaring is that the novel is just plain dull.

The characters are flat, mono-dimensional. Author relies heavily on telling, and vomiting large chunks of exposition at you.

Dialogue is clunky in places, and just strikes me as being "off" in this particular book. Never heard that I scream, you scream, we all scream because this book is utterly frustrating.

Never heard that one before, amirite? Whilst this plot has been done to death, I am not adverse to it. Heck, there's plenty of enjoyable stories which follow that kind of formula.

Done well - or given a unique spin - cliche plots needn't be awful just because they're cliche. However, "A Quest of Heroes" does not bring anything new to the market.

On top of that, it's not particularly well written, meaning that it's not even one of those stories that you follow along enjoying the ride.

It drags you along; you're not even passionate enough to kick and scream - it's just a kind of "meh" as you go along. Second, characters: Flat.

Flat, flat, flat. What makes Thor a compelling character? He's a perfect "good guy". When she meets a beautiful priestess, Teela, in need of help, Marek escapes her master and puts together a team of adventurers and embarks on an epic quest to free Teela's sister from a vicious ogre.

Not even sure that's a thing anymore, but those of you of an age, and geekish as myself, will know what I'm talking about.

The story moves along well and is surprisingly well written. Acting is well done by the relatively unknown cast. If you are a fan of Sorbo, besides being in the promo photos, his role is minimal as in maybe 3 min screen time.

Plot, well I'm not giving anything away telling you this is a fantasy quest movie, heck its in the title. Direction is well done.

CGI is Considering the extremely low crowd-funded budget it wasn't terrible. Costumes and creatures weren't bad. Overall, not a bad way to spend a couple hours and worth a binge watch of the whole series if you have Amazon Prime.
