“THE SORCERER’S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers.”
—Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding A Quest of Heroes)

THE GIFT OF BATTLE (Book #17) is the finale of the Bestselling series THE SORCERER'S RING, which begins with A QUEST OF HEROES (book #1)!

In THE GIFT OF BATTLE, Thor meets his greatest and final challenge, as he quests deeper into the Land of Blood to attempt to rescue Guwayne. Encountering foes more powerful than he ever imagined, Thor soon realizes he is up against an army of darkness, one for which his powers are no match. When he learns a sacred object may give him the powers he needs—an object which has been kept secret for ages—he must embark on a final quest to retrieve it before it is too late, with the fate of the Ring hanging in the balance.

Gwendolyn keeps her vow to the King of the Ridge, entering the tower and confronting the cult leader to learn what secret he is hiding. The revelation sends her to Argon, and ultimately to Argon’s master—where she learns the greatest secret of all, one which may alter the destiny of her people. When the Ridge is discovered by the Empire, the invasion begins and, under attack by the greatest army known to man, it falls on Gwendolyn to defend, and to lead her people on one final, mass exodus.

Thor’s Legion brothers, on their own, face unimaginable risks, as Angel is dying from her leprosy. Darius fights for his life beside his father in the Empire capital, until a surprise twist prods him, with nothing left to lose, to finally tap his own powers. Erec and Alistair reach Volusia, battling their way upriver, and they continue on their quest for Gwendolyn and the exiles, as they face unexpected battles. And Godfrey realizes that he must ultimately make a decision to be the man he wants to be.

Volusia, surrounded by all the power of the Knights of the Seven, must put herself to the test as goddess and discover if she alone has the power to crush men and rule the Empire. While Argon, faced with his end of days, realizes the time has come to sacrifice himself.

As good and evil hang in the balance, one final, epic battle—the greatest battle of all—will determine the outcome of the Ring for all time.

With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, THE GIFT OF BATTLE is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. THE GIFT OF BATTLE is the longest of all the books in the series, at 93,000 words!

“Action-packed …. Rice's writing is solid and the premise intriguing.”
—Publishers Weekly (regarding A Quest of Heroes)

fifteen feet before landing on the sandy shores of the Empire. All around him his men followed, hundreds strong, all charging across the beach, dodging Empire arrows and spears as they burst out of the mist and across the open sand for the Empire fort. The Empire soldiers rallied, too, rushing out to meet them.

Erec braced himself as a hulking Empire soldier came charging right for him, shrieking, lifting his ax and swinging it sideways for Erec’s head. Erec ducked, stabbed him in the gut, and hurried on. Erec, his battle reflexes kicking in, stabbed another soldier in the heart, sidestepped an ax blow from another, then spun around and slashed him across the chest. Another charged him from behind, and without turning, he elbowed him in the kidney, dropping him to his knees.

Erec ran through the ranks of soldiers, quicker and faster and stronger than anyone on the field, leading his men as one at a time, they cut down the Empire soldiers, making their way toward the fort. The fighting grew thick, hand-to-hand, and these Empire soldiers, nearly twice their size, were fierce opponents. Erec was heartbroken to see many of his men fall around him.

But Erec, determined, moved like lightning, Strom beside him, and he outmaneuvered them left and right. He tore through the beach like a demon released from hell.

lima belas kaki sebelum mendarat di pantai berpasir Kekaisaran. Di sekelilingnya orang-orangnya mengikuti, ratusan kuat, semuanya menyerbu pantai, menghindari panah dan tombak Kerajaan saat mereka keluar dari kabut dan melintasi pasir terbuka untuk benteng Kekaisaran. Para prajurit Kekaisaran juga bersatu, bergegas keluar untuk menemui mereka.

Erec menguatkan dirinya ketika seorang prajurit Kekaisaran raksasa datang menyerbu tepat untuknya, menjerit, mengangkat kapaknya dan mengayunkannya ke samping untuk kepala Erec. Erec merunduk, menusuknya di usus, dan bergegas. Erec, refleks pertempurannya menendang, menikam prajurit lain di jantung, menghindari pukulan kapak dari yang lain, lalu berbalik dan menebasnya di dada. Yang lain menuduhnya dari belakang, dan tanpa berbalik, dia menyikut ginjalnya, menjatuhkannya ke lutut.

Erec berlari melalui barisan tentara, lebih cepat dan lebih cepat dan lebih kuat dari siapa pun di lapangan, memimpin pasukannya sebagai satu per satu, mereka menebang tentara Kekaisaran, membuat jalan mereka menuju benteng. Pertempuran semakin tebal, dari tangan ke tangan, dan para prajurit Kekaisaran ini, hampir dua kali ukuran mereka, adalah lawan yang sengit. Erec patah hati melihat banyak anak buahnya jatuh di sekelilingnya.

Tapi Erec, bertekad, bergerak seperti kilat, Strom di sampingnya, dan dia mengalahkan mereka kiri dan kanan. Dia merobek pantai seperti iblis yang dilepaskan dari neraka.
