Hero Quest (Ring #1)

A Quest of Heroes
(The Sorcerer’s Ring #1)
by Morgan Rice (2012)

This fantasy story revolves around a 14 year old boy from a small village. Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and having adventures.

This starts with a well-worn trope, the boy who would be destined for greatness and presumably survives the 17 book series.

So despite the generic fantasy series and cut-out characters it works well. Things move at a good pace and with sufficient pace to keep the reader guessing. Looks like an interesting ride.
