<p>The insignia of the great Japanese Empire is composed of three treasures which have been considered sacred, and guarded with jealous care from time immemorial. These are the Yatano-no-Kagami or the Mirror of Yata, the Yasakami-no-Magatama or the Jewel of Yasakami, and the Murakumo-no-Tsurugi or the Sword of Murakumo. </p><br /><p>Of these three treasures of the Empire, the sword of Murakumo, afterwards known as Kusanagi-no-Tsrugugi, or the grass-cleaving sword, is considered the most precious and most highly to be honored, for it is the symbol of strength to this nation of warriors and the talisman of invincibility for the Emperor, while he holds it sacred in the shrine of his ancestors. </p><br /><p>Nearly two thousand years ago this sword was kept at the shrines of Ite, the temples dedicated to the worship of Amaterasu, the great and beautiful Sun Goddess from whom the Japanese Emperors are said to be descended. </p><br /><p>There is a story of knightly adventure and daring which explains why the name of the sword was changed from that of Murakumo to Kasanagi, which means grass clearing. </p><br /><p>Once, many, many years ago, there was born a son to the Emperor Keiko, the twelfth in descent from the great Jimmu, the founder of the Japanese dynasty. This Prince was the second son of the Emperor Keiko, and he was named Yamato. From his childhood he proved himself to be of remarkable strength, wisdom and courage, and his father noticed with pride that he gave promise of great things, and he loved him even more than he did his elder son. </p><br /><p>Now when Prince Yamato had grown to manhood (in the olden days of Japanese history, a boy was considered to have reached man's estate at the early age of sixteen) the realm was much troubled by a band of outlaws whose chiefs were two brothers, Kumaso and Takeru. These rebels seemed to delight in rebelling against the King, in breaking the laws and defying all authority. </p><br /><p>At last King Keiko ordered his younger son Prince Yamato to subdue the brigands and, if possible, to rid the land of their evil lives. Prince Yamato was only sixteen years of age, he had but reached his manhood according to the law, yet though he was such a youth in years he possessed the dauntless spirit of a warrior of fuller age and knew not what fear was. Even then there was no man who could rival him for courage and bold deeds, and he received his father's command with great joy.</p><br /><p>La insignia del gran Imperio japonés está compuesta por tres tesoros que han sido considerados sagrados y custodiados con celos desde tiempos inmemoriales. Estos son el Yatano-no-Kagami o el Espejo de Yata, el Yasakami-no-Magatama o la Joya de Yasakami, y el Murakumo-no-Tsurugi o la Espada de Murakumo. </p><br /><p>De estos tres tesoros del Imperio, la espada de Murakumo, más tarde conocida como Kusanagi-no-Tsrugugi, o la espada que corta hierba, se considera la más preciosa y la más digna de ser honrada, ya que es el símbolo de la fuerza de este nación de guerreros y el talismán de la invencibilidad para el Emperador, mientras que él lo mantiene sagrado en el santuario de sus antepasados. </p><br /><p>Hace casi dos mil años, esta espada se conservó en los santuarios de Ite, los templos dedicados a la adoración de Amaterasu, la gran y hermosa diosa del sol de la que se dice que descienden los emperadores japoneses. </p><br /><p>Hay una historia de audacia y audacia caballerescas que explica por qué el nombre de la espada cambió de Murakumo a Kasanagi, lo que significa la limpieza de la hierba. </p><br /><p>Una vez, muchos, muchos años atrás, nació un hijo del emperador Keiko, el duodécimo descendiente del gran Jimmu, el fundador de la dinastía japonesa. Este Príncipe fue el segundo hijo del Emperador Keiko, y fue nombrado Yamato. Desde su niñez demostró ser de una fuerza, sabiduría y coraje extraordinarios, y su padre se dio cuenta con orgullo de que prometía grandes cosas, y lo amaba aún más que a su hijo mayor.</p>

With nothing else to look forward to, his obsession with SwordQuest is reignited, in a more…ummm, interesting way…<br /><br />Written by Chad Bowers and Chris Sims (X-Men ’92, Down Set Fight) and art by Scott Kowalchuk (Batman ’66, Down Set Fight).

“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.” <br />--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos <br /><br />Volume #1 in the graphic novel adaptation of the #1 Bestseller A QUEST OF HEROES, with over 900 five star reviews on Amazon! <br /><br />From #1 Bestselling author Morgan Rice comes the debut of a dazzling new fantasy series. A QUEST OF HEROES (BOOK #1 IN THE SORCERER’S RING) revolves around the epic coming of age story of one special boy, a 14 year old from a small village on the outskirts of the Kingdom of the Ring. The youngest of four, the least favorite of his father, hated by his brothers, Thorgrin senses he is different from the others. He dreams of becoming a great warrior, of joining the King’s men and protecting the Ring from the hordes of creatures on the other side of the Canyon. When he comes of age and is forbidden by his father to try out for the King’s Legion, he refuses to take no for an answer: he journeys out on his own, determined to force his way into King’s Court and be taken seriously. <br /><br />But King’s Court is rife with its own family dramas, power struggles, ambitions, jealousy, violence and betrayal. King MacGil must choose an heir from amongst his children, and the ancient Dynasty Sword, the source of all their power, still sits untouched, waiting for the chosen one to arrive. Thorgrin arrives as an outsider and battles to be accepted, and to join the King’s Legion. <br /><br />Thorgrin comes to learn he has mysterious powers he does not understand, that he has a special gift, and a special destiny. Against all odds he falls in love with the king’s daughter, and as their forbidden relationship blossoms, he discovers he has powerful rivals. As he struggles to make sense of his powers, the king’s sorcerer takes him under his wing and tells him of a mother he never knew, in a land far away, beyond the Canyon, beyond even the land of the Dragons. <br /><br />Before Thorgrin can venture out and become the warrior he yearns to be, he must complete his training. But this may be cut short, as he finds himself propelled into the center of royal plots and counterplots, ones that may threaten his love and bring him down—and the entire kingdom with him. <br /><br />With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A QUEST OF HEROES 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. <br /><br />This is the first episode of the graphic novel (24 pages). More episodes to come soon!<br /><br />“[An] entertaining epic fantasy.” <br />—Kirkus Reviews <br /><br />“The beginnings of something remarkable are there.” <br />--San Francisco Book Review <br /><br />“A spirited fantasy ….Only the beginning of what promises to be an epic young adult series.” <br />--Midwest Book Review<br />
