Slave, Warrior, Queen (Of Crowns and Glory—Book 1)
“Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of valor, honor, courage, magic and faith in your destiny. Morgan has managed again to produce a strong set of characters that make us cheer for them on every page.…Recommended for the permanent library of all readers that love a well-written fantasy.”
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Rise of the Dragons)

From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes a sweeping new fantasy series.

17 year old Ceres, a beautiful, poor girl in the Empire city of Delos, lives the harsh and unforgiving life of a commoner. By day she delivers her father’s forged weapons to the palace training grounds, and by night she secretly trains with them, yearning to be a warrior in a land where girls are forbidden to fight. With her pending sale to slavehood, she is desperate.

18 year old Prince Thanos despises everything his royal family stands for. He abhors their harsh treatment of the masses, especially the brutal competition—The Killings—that lies at the heart of the city. He yearns to break free from the restraints of his upbringing, yet he, a fine warrior, sees no way out.

When Ceres stuns the court with her hidden powers, she finds herself wrongfully imprisoned, doomed to an even worse life than she could imagine. Thanos, smitten, must choose if he will risk it all for her. Yet, thrust into a world of duplicity and deadly secrets, Ceres quickly learns there are those who rule, and those who are their pawns. And that sometimes, being chosen is the worst that can happen.

SLAVE, WARRIOR, QUEEN tells an epic tale of tragic love, vengeance, betrayal, ambition, and destiny. Filled with unforgettable characters and heart-pounding action, it transports us into a world we will never forget, and makes us fall in love with fantasy all over again.

Book #2 in OF CROWNS AND GLORY will be released soon!

Alone (#1 Flamestone Trilogy)
Elaine has spent her sixteen years proving that she’s nothing like her murderous father—but no one will let her forget her dark family history. So when her best friend Talia goes missing, Elaine takes the search and rescue into her own hands.
But on her quest, Elaine finds herself in a wilderness where teenagers are worked to death in mines by an evil organization known as the Flamestone Society. Elaine barely escapes, but her boyfriend doesn’t. Because of her, his life is now in danger right along with Talia’s.

Now Elaine’s alone in a vast wilderness with only her survival instincts on her side. There’s no Facebook. 911 is useless. As if that’s not bad enough, she failed summer camp and the Flamestone Society is closing in. Armed with only an axe, Elaine will have to embrace her dark family history in order to survive. Along the way, she’ll have to face some terrifying secrets about her own past.

From Midwest Book Review:

“Alone is Volume 1 of the Flamestone Trilogy and opens with a bang: a smartphone tags the protagonist’s best friend as ‘MISSING’, sparking the angst and attention of Elaine, who is on a journey to both save her friend and deny the possible connections between herself and her murderous father.

There’s only one way of proving her different psyche, and that’s to embark on a journey to find her friend. Best friends tell each other everything - but Talia never mentioned possible abuse from her foster family. Best friends keep no secrets - but Elaine has harbored one which she cannot seem to share with anyone. And best friends don’t give up on one another - even when the situation seems hopeless, and even if the journey involves walking out of everything Elaine finds familiar.

Alone begins this quest and brings Elaine to a world with no smartphones, no technology support, and too many monsters. It’s a world in which her rejection of her family background might have been the wrong move: a world in which these murderous impulses may be the only things standing between life and death.

Elaine’s going to have to traverse strange lands and develop a skill set she never knew before - and readers are going to ride along for her heart-wrenching journey. It’s just that simple, because once Alone is begun, it’s hard to put down.

Feisty protagonists, excellent twists and turns of plot, and gripping moments of pursuit and life-or-death confrontations keep readers on the edges of their seats. Young adult to adult readers of fantasy, horror, and intrigue will find Alone is solidly cemented by protagonists who are not just believable, but absorbing. Their purposes, failings, and adventures become an intrinsic part of a saga that paints a stunning portrait of survival against all odds.

And yes, it’s Book One. Be forewarned: more adventures will continue the journey introduced here!”

The Finding: The Legend of Oescienne
When the dragon Jaax receives word that a human infant has been found in the province of Oescienne, he doesn’t dare believe it. Humans have been extinct for centuries, trapped by a terrible curse and left to live out their existence in the form of dragons. Despite his doubts, however, Jaax assumes responsibility for the baby girl only to discover that what he has been seeking for so many years has finally been found . . .
Jahrra knows all about the legends and sagas of Oescienne, but never in her wildest dreams would she believe that she played a part in one of them. She’s far too busy dodging the bullies at school and seeking out new adventures with her friends to worry about what secrets her dragon mentor might be keeping from her, or that her every move is being watched by something living in the forest surrounding her home.
But the secrets run deep, and as Jahrra fights to earn her place in this extraordinary world, she will begin to unravel the truth of it all: that she isn’t as safe as she thought she was, that danger lurks around every corner, and that her role in this unfurling tale is far more significant than she could possibly imagine.
