Morgan Rice

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Publish Date: April 17, 2015

Publisher: Morgan Rice

Seller: Lukeman Literary Management


“An action packed fantasy sure to please fans of Morgan Rice’s previous novels, along with fans of works such as The Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini…. Fans of Young Adult Fiction will devour this latest work by Rice and beg for more.” — The Wanderer, A Literary Journal (regarding Rise of the Dragons ) The #1 Bestselling series!  RISE OF THE VALIANT is book #2 in Morgan Rice’s bestselling epic fantasy series KINGS AND SORCERERS (which begins with RISE OF THE DRAGONS)!  In the wake of the dragon’s attack, Kyra is sent on an urgent quest: to cross Escalon and seek out her uncle in the mysterious Tower of Ur. The time has come for her to learn about who she is, who her mother is, and to train and develop her special powers. It will be a quest fraught with peril for a girl alone, Escalon filled with dangers from savage beasts and men alike—one that will require all of her strength to survive. Her father, Duncan, must lead his men south, to the great water city of Esephus, to attempt to free his fellow countrymen from the iron grip of Pandesia. If he succeeds, he will have to journey to the treacherous Lake of Ire and then onto the icy peaks of Kos, where there live the toughest warriors of Escalon, men he will need to recruit if he has any chance of taking the capital. Alec escapes with Marco from The Flames to find himself on the run through the Wood of Thorns, chased by exotic beasts. It is a harrowing journey through the night as he quests for his hometown, hoping to be reunited with his family. When he arrives, he is shocked by what he discovers. Merk, despite his better judgment, turns back to help the girl, and finds himself, for the first time in his life, entangled in a stranger’s affairs. He will not forego his pilgrimage to the Tower of Ur, though, and he finds himself anguished as he realizes the tower is not what he expects. Vesuvius spurs his giant as he leads the Trolls on their mission underground, attempting to bypass The Flames, while the dragon, Theos, has his own special mission on Escalon. With its strong atmosphere and complex characters, RISE OF THE VALIANT 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, 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.  Book #3 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon.   “If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, 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 ) “[The novel] succeeds—right from the start…. A superior fantasy…It begins, as it should, with one protagonist's struggles and moves neatly into a wider circle of knights, dragons, magic and monsters, and destiny.…All the trappings of high fantasy are here, from soldiers and battles to confrontations with self….A recommended winner for any who enjoy epic fantasy writing fueled by powerful, believable young adult protagonists.” — Midwest Book Review, D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer (regarding Rise of the Dragons ) “A plot-driven novel that’s easy to read in a weekend…A good start to a promising series.” –San Francisco Book Review (regarding Rise of the Dragons )

Carhartt Work In Progress Unveils a London Flagship near King’s Cross

KING’S CROSS CARHARTT: Carhartt Work In Progress, the fashion proposition from the American workwear brand, has opened its first London flagship in the newly-revitalized neighborhood near King’s Cross train station.
Located at 2 Pancras Square, near Nike, &OtherStories and Jigsaw, the 2,500-square feet store spans two levels and also houses a coffee shop. It carries the full Carhartt WIP men’s and women’s ranges and collaborations, with prices ranging from 25 pounds for a watch beanie, to 400 pounds for outerwear.
The interiors are meant to channel a “rugged utilitarianism” with canvas wall panels and display units designed in hues of brown and tan. Floors are done in concrete while aluminium lamps hang from the ceiling. Designer Faye Toogood created the post-industrial brass fixtures as well as the overall look of the store.
Brand director Wilfried Atzert said Carhartt specifically wanted to be in the neighborhood. “King’s Cross has had a transformation. The area is home to Central Saint Martins as well as London’s Eurostar international terminal. The surrounding area is in the middle of a very interesting expansion – offering a diverse mix of shops, bars, restaurants and headquarters as well.”
Launched in 1989 in Europe, Carhartt Work In Progress puts a trendy spin

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.

The Time of Kings – Explained

This post is a spoiler (and explanation) for my post The Time of Kings. You should read that post first.

After seeing the comments to my whimsical post about wizards in the time of kings, I am reminded that some of you subscribe to what I would call the “Wimpy Jesus” view of history.

Wimpy Jesus – should such a person have actually existed – would have said some version of “Turn the other cheek” because he wanted to avoid violence to others, even at great personal risk. For Wimpy Jesus, it is all about not fighting.

I subscribe to the Bad-ass Jesus view of history. In that view, “Turn the other cheek” was a call to psychological warfare as a way to prevail against a stronger enemy. And it was a reminder that an individual can topple governments with a good enough game. If the meek want to conquer the earth, Jesus was laying out the game plan.

To me, turn the other cheek means you should do the unexpected. Get into your opponents head. Then win. It was a huge mental shift for humans, to imagine that the mind is more powerful than the sword.

That’s bad-ass Jesus. I like that guy. He showed in four words (give or take some translations and maybe some co-authors) that power is in the mind, not the sword. Consider how big a deal that was in a time where force was everything. 

[Update: I wrote my interpretation before seeing a link in the comments that at least one historian agrees it was psychological warfare.]

In the second half of my post about The Time of Kings, I said five kings rose at about the same time. You wondered who they are, and why only five.

I picked five  because it had to be at least that many. And I chose an odd number because it helps with tie-breaking votes in small groups. Having lived in this world, I know that more than five wizards just makes things harder, not better. So five is a rational guess. 

But certainly Franklin, Jefferson, Madison, and Washington are in. I left one space for imagination. 

So why is “We the people” such a powerful statement in three words?

It says the people can unite as one power, without a call to a leader. It was an amazing thought for the time. We take it for granted now. That’s why it might seem trite to some of you. But it was a huge mental shift about the nature of humans. 

If the Wizard pattern holds, the next wizard would have reduced the code to two words. And those two words would be what the world needs at this point in history to advance our understanding of who we are as human beings.

I nominate these two words.

[Update: With this post and the related ones I wrote on the topic of persuasion, I have accidentally written the prequel to God’s Debris and its sequel The Religion War
Round it all off with my book about your moist robot self (How to Fail Almost Every Time and Still Win Big) and you have an alternative view of reality that explains the Trump phenomenon. I don’t present this filter as truth. I just think it is fun to compare its predictive power to whatever you were doing before. I remind you that this blog is for entertainment only.]

The accidental connecting theme is the hypothesis that a small group of linguistic wizards control all of the big events in the world and always have, using the power of words that are engineered to rewire the irrational brains of the moist robots who believe they have free will. And you can be a wizard. 

Or maybe reality is the thing that you believe. Could be that too. Let’s see which one explains the past and makes the best predictions. 

I remind you this is just for fun. The connections across those books is accidental. They just happen to fit together in an alternative universe sort of way.

The Time of Kings

Everything that follows is true.

As far as I know.

Centuries ago, in the time of kings, a young autodidact discovered the linguistic interface to the human mind. Some say he was the first wizard. This we cannot know for sure.

The source of the wizard’s power was a simple discovery. He learned that when he described to people a better version of themselves, they automatically rewired their minds to become the person of his description. At first the wizard used his method to control one person at a time. Before long he learned how to move entire crowds. 

And then he was dangerous.

News of the wizard’s power spread across the kingdom. The king dispatched his soldiers to hunt down the wizard and kill him before the wizard’s power grew to rival his own.

But it was too late.

The wizard had anticipated his own death. Working feverishly, the wizard managed to condense all he had learned into four words. But there was a risk of leaving those four words and their immense power in the wrong hands after the wizard’s death. The world was not ready. 

The wizard wrote his four words on scrolls and ordered his people to hide them in a maze of less-important words. The wizard hoped that someday a new wizard would find the hidden words and unpack their meaning. And he hoped that by then the world would be ready for such power.

Centuries passed. The words survived, but no wizard came to unlock their true meaning. Many pretenders tried. Wars were fought in an effort to understand the four words and the decoy words surrounding them. It was futile. The words were hidden too well, in plain sight, as wizards do.

Hundreds of years later, in another kingdom, five wizards rose. Each of them started life as bright, curious autodidacts. Individually, each of them decoded the hidden message from the original wizard and unlocked the power of the four words.

History does not tell us why five wizards suddenly rose at once, and in the same kingdom. We only know it happened. 

Armed with the power of the four words from the original wizard, each of the wizards amassed fame and power. And each started to notice the unusual successes of the others. 

One of the wizards was deeply unattractive. Yet he had the power to seduce any woman he chose. 

That is a tell.

One wizard lived like a rich man despite having no net wealth.

That is a tell.

One wizard could inspire men to great acts, using words alone.

That is a tell.

The wizards met each other and shared their secrets. They were good people, by the standards of the day, but their powers caught the attention of the king. Men with so much power were a risk to the throne. So the king raised an army to move against the five wizards.

The five wizards heard of the king’s plan and combined forces to defend against his army. The ugly wizard was dispatched to seduce the king of another great power and persuade him to fight on their side. The wizard succeeded. But it wasn’t enough.

Another wizard used his powers to raise an army of passionate men who would fight and die for the wizards’ cause.

The remaining wizards manipulated the opinion of civilians and raised money to support the war.

The wizards knew their odds of survival were low. So they followed the example of the original wizard and created a linguistic maze to hide their secrets until future wizards could unlock their power.

The five wizards condensed the original wizard’s four-word linguistic code down to three new words that were a better fit for the times. And they buried the three words in a dense document where none but a future wizard would find them.

Against all odds, the five wizards and their legions of followers prevailed in a long, bloody conflict against the king’s forces. After the war, the wizards lived to very old ages, as wizards often do, and passed peacefully.

The words created by the five wizards changed the world in their time and continue to be the most important code in the operating system of human beings. Those three words have toppled dictators, moved mountains, and fed the hungry. 

Perhaps someday a future wizard will improve on the code left behind by the five wizards. But I doubt it, because I believe you will never see three more beautiful or powerful words.

I have a link to an image of the original parchment created by the five wizards. The three words that matter are the first ones on the page.

The original wizard’s four-word code still survives as well. And it has escaped its linguistic maze to join less-important words from popular culture. But no matter now many words you put around the original four, none can change its meaning. The four words, in their time, told us of our better selves.

See if you can find those four words on this modern sign.

Scott

Bid by B.B. King’s daughter to get medical records denied

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A court in Las Vegas denied a bid by one of B.B. King's daughters to obtain the late blues icon's medical records from an executor who she alleges mishandled her father's treatment before he died. Probate Commissioner Wesley Yamashita told a lawyer for Patty King on Friday that she can subpoena the records, so he didn't need to issue a court order. The lawyer for B.B. King's estate told the judge that he thinks Patty King is fishing …

Tyga Sued $1.6M For Cutting Partner Out Of Last Kings Line

If Tyga is indeed cursed for the year 2015, this newest lawsuit has painfully he still has roughly an half of year to endure it.

The embattled rapper is being accused of doing some shady business regarding his Last Kings clothing line.

Reports TMZ:

Tyga screwed a woman — not named Kylie — by lying to her, and jacking her concept for a clothing company to the tune of more than a MILLION bucks … or so she claims in a new lawsuit.

According to the docs … Tyga and Chuon Guen Lee formed the clothing line Last Kings in January 2013 — and she says Tyga promised to heavily promote the line and get it on shelves in the popular clothing chain, Tilly’s.

Lee says none of those things happened, and then Tyga made off with more than half a mil in merch. The real kick in the gut — she says he started another company with another partner, and cleverly named it … Egypt Kings.

Needless to say, Lee is not amused by the wordplay. She’s suing Tyga and his new partner for $ 1.6 mil, plus damages.

Tyga’s reps tell us, “These, like other allegations, are completely false. This was a business relationship that went sour and was ended last year. We learned of the complaint via TMZ and are aware that individuals will continue to attempt to cash in on Tyga’s success.”

Speaking of success, Birdman is reportedly unhappy with Tyga’s latest album, floundering on the charts.

From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay a unfocused rage. Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed. Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture. Rubble Kings chronicles life during this era of gang rule, tells the story of how a few extraordinary, forgotten people did the impossible, and how their actions impacted New York City and the world over.

After the death of his father King George V (Michael Gambon of HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE) and the scandalous abdication of King Edward VIII (Guy Pearce of MEMENTO), Bertie (Academy-Award®-winner Colin Firth) who has suffered from a debilitating speech impediment all his life, is suddenly crowned King George VI of England. With his country on the brink of war and in desperate need of a leader, his wife, Elizabeth (Golden-Globe®-nominee Helena Bonham Carter), the future Queen Mother, arranges for her husband to see an eccentric speech therapist, Lionel Logue (Academy-Award®-winner Geoffrey Rush). After a rough start, the two delve into an unorthodox course of treatment and eventually form an unbreakable bond. With the support of Logue, his family, his government and Winston Churchill (Timothy Spall of SWEENEY TODD), the King will overcome his stammer and deliver a radio-address that inspires his people and unites them in battle. Winner of four Oscars® including "Best Picture" and "Best Actor," The King's Speech is based on the true story of King George VI's quest to find his voice.

It can be anything. A fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen. Something ominous lurking in the basement. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows It better than Stephen King. Based on the King Of Horror's 1986 bestseller, It is a jittery, jolting excursion into personal fear. A malevolent force in a small New England town takes the shape of a clown, but he's not clowning around. Instead, he terrifies youngsters and brings some to their untimely doom – until some wily kids fight back. The evil resurfaces 30 years later: meaner, angrier, deadlier. And friends who vividly remember youthful terrors reunite to fight It.

Morgan Rice

Genre: Fantasy

Publish Date: December 22, 2014

Publisher: Morgan Rice

Seller: Lukeman Literary Management


“If you thought that there was no reason left for living after the end of the Sorcerer’s Ring series, you were wrong. In RISE OF THE DRAGONS Morgan Rice has come up with what promises to be another brilliant series, immersing us in a fantasy of trolls and dragons, 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 The #1 Bestseller! 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. Book #2 in KINGS AND SORCERERS will be published soon. “RISE OF THE DRAGONS succeeds—right from the start…. A superior fantasy…It begins, as it should, with one protagonist&apos;s struggles and moves neatly into a wider circle of knights, dragons, magic and monsters, and destiny.…All the trappings of high fantasy are here, from soldiers and battles to confrontations with self….A recommended winner for any who enjoy epic fantasy writing fueled by powerful, believable young adult protagonists.” –Midwest Book Review, D.

B.B. King’s death strikes mournful chord for musicians, presidents

Guitarist Eric Clapton remembered the B.B. King album that inspired him as a young musician and Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton recalled the thrill of performing with the “King of Blues.” Musicians, politicians and blues lovers around the world on Friday expressed sorrow over the death of the blues legend on Thursday night at the age of 89, and their gratitude for the legacy he left. Clapton, one of the music world’s most influential guitarists, thanked King for inspiration, encouragement and friendship over the years. “He was a beacon for all of us who love this kind of music and I thank him from the bottom of my heart.” Clapton encouraged people to find the 1965 album called “B.B. King Live At The Regal,” saying it was “where it really started for me as a young player.” Obama, who calls the blues mecca of Chicago his home, remembered how he sang “Sweet Home Chicago” with King at a White House blues concert three years ago.

Jaime King’s Style Is Even Better Than Her Friendship With Taylor Swift

We admit it. We’re completely envious of model-turned-actress Jaime King for a slew of reasons, not least of which are her beauty and her stance on body acceptance. It also helps that the “Hart Of Dixie” star is besties with Taylor Swift. Oh and her wardrobe is ridiculously swoon-worthy.

And @taylorswift will forever be looking over our new baby @kyle_newman -we all love you!!!! Xx

King pulls off high fashion looks on the red carpet with as much ease as she does funky bathing suits at the beach, and can teach you a thing or two about turtlenecks.

Here are 17 reasons Jaime King is our underrated style star of the week.

Kings of the Hill: GOP Funds Time Machine

“We’re Partying Like It’s 2008!”

The House GOP majority today announced it will fund a time machine that will return the economy to the fall of 2008.

House Science & Technology Committee Lamar Smith (R-TX) said, “Instead of wasting time whipping votes on the Floor to deregulate big banks, we can press a button that whisks us right back to the Bush administration!”

The decision was made in the first week of the new Congress, when the GOP struggled to pass legislation to roll back the Dodd-Frank Act. That law, passed in 2010, imposed new restrictions on the financial institutions that pulled the world economy into the worst recession in history due to highly-risky investment decisions.

Republican Arvin Fump defended those practices as “proven job creators.” The Michigan Republican said, “Do you know how many people were hired to put foreclosure signs in front yards across America?”

At a press conference announcing the “A Better Past For Certain People Time Machine Research & Development Act of 2015,” Republicans waxed nostalgically about that October day when they defeated the Troubled Assets Relief Act and the Dow plunged 750 points.

President Obama threatened to veto the funding, saying, “If a time machine is going to take us anywhere, it should be the day that Al Gore invented the Internet. There were some design flaws that could have been addressed.”

The time tunnel will be paid for by eliminating funding for research of Alzheimer’s disease and cancer at the National Institutes of Health. A spokesman for Speaker John Boehner noted: “We believe in balanced budgets and no free rides. Someone has to pay to return to the days of predatory lending, collateral debt obligations, and derivatives.

In a joint statement, Donna and Bill Everett of Loomsville, Indiana, praised the move:

“In 2008, we lost our 401ks and all the equity in our home. Our kids can’t go to college, and our paychecks will never regain their strength. We now both work part time at the Sushi Corral. But we need to continue opposing tax and spend Democrats. And if that means going back to the days when big banks could completely screw us over, so be it!”

One Republican aide noted: “Forget ‘Throwback Thursday.’ With this time machine we’ll do ‘Rollbacks Every Day!'”

It has been centuries since the fall of the Knights Radiant, but their mystical swords and armor remain, transforming ordinary men into near-invincible warriors. Men trade kingdoms for them. Wars are fought for them and won by them. One such war rages on the Shattered Plains where Kaladin , son of a surgeon, has been reduced to slavery, and Dalinar , commander of the armies, is plagued by dreams of ancient times, doubting his own sanity.

‘Exodus: Gods And Kings’ Film Sparks Backlash For Whitewashing Characters

Hollywood has faced a great deal of criticism for its long history of casting white actors to portray minority characters.

“Exodus: Gods and Kings” is the most recent film to face backlash regarding the portrayal of characters from the Bible and the entertainment industry. Director Ridley Scott’s film has so far been met with a furious Twitter storm armed with the its very own hashtag: #BoycottExodusMovie.

The “Exodus” cast’s leading lineup of kings, queens and prophets are all played by white actors such as Christian Bale and Sigourney Weaver, but the the slaves, servants and low-class civilians are played by actors of color.

The cast isn’t the movie’s only whitewashed criticism — even the set design is under fire for offensive transformation.

This isn’t the first time whitewashed, ancient Egypt-themed productions have stirred up controversy. Elizabeth Taylor played Cleopatra in 1963, and even documentary filmmaker Tariq Nasheed told The Huffington Post that whitewashed History Channel re-enactments inspired his latest film “Hidden Colors 3: The Rules of Racism.”

Time will tell if the hashtag boycott carries itself all the way to the box office, “Exodus: Gods and Kings” is set to premiere in December.

Watch the “Exodus: Gods and Kings” trailer below.
