The story- more fairy tale then fantasy- is set in a medieval environment. Thor is actually cinderella. His 2 elder brothers and his father are bullying him making him their slave. When he finally tries to escape his life to join the king's legion they wouldn't allow him to present himself. He flees home, slaughters a monster and encounters the king's druid who tells him that his destiny is by far greater then he believes. His persistence and kind but somehow naive character make him achieve his goal and become part of the king's legion and even a close friend to the royal family until he gets involved in intrigues and falls from grace. In total a very shallow and simple story. I even didn't remember the book, the plot or the characters after 2 months. I certainly won't read the remaining books of the sorcerer's ring.

This WILL get on your nerves, I don't even know why I finished it.
The story is good, but the style is detestable! Lots of repetitions that make you roll your eyes as in: AGAIN!?! It's probably the worst I've read since raiding the local library at home and not caring about what I read, so long as it was a big enough book. A shame, cause as I said, the story has real potential.
