Intricately plotted, with compelling characters, "The Fifth Ring" by Mitchell Graham is the first volume in an epic fantasy trilogy that tells of a young man's survival against insurmountable odds. Despite a massive defeat decades ago, Karas Duren, Lord of Alor Sator, is again attempting to conquer the neighbouring kingdoms and bring them under one rule - his own. Now the evil ruler holds a weapon of mass destruction: a single ring left over from the Ancients that will allow him to control people and destroy everything and anyone who chooses to oppose him - including his own brother. In a small village, a young boy wins a ring in a fencing tournament. Born and raised on a small farm, Mathew has little contact with the outside world, until the day his father is murdered in front of his eyes. Mat kills the murderer in revenge and must run for his life. Joining him is a mysterious priest, a few friends, and his love, Lara. During his flight Mathew discovers unusual powers in the ring, powers that make him one of the most potent men on the planet - and bring him to Duren's attention...A story of courage, love, and valour, this is epic fantasy at its best.
