A Clash of Honor, by Morgan Rice, is a story about valiant warriors struggling to free their kingdom from oppression. Set against the backdrop of an invasion by the neighboring McCloud Kingdom, brave heroes from the MacGil kingdom defend their land and strive to return it to freedom.

Princess Gwendolyn of the MacGil family is deeply troubled by recent events. Her father, the king, has died recently, and the McClouds have been attacking because their king believes the MacGils are now weak. Gwendolyn's brother Godfrey is poisoned by their other brother Gareth at the same time the man Gwendolyn loves, named Thor, is ambushed by enemy soldiers. With the help of a mystical being named Argon, she manages to save both Thor and Godfrey. Thor rapidly gains fame and honor as his companions recognize his extraordinary fighting skills. But Argon has made it clear to both Thor and Gwendolyn that very powerful forces are at play, and fate itself is involved. Gareth, brother of Gwendolyn and Godfrey, has taken control of the throne despite his father's wishes that Gwendolyn should rule. Godfrey is convinced that his brother poisoned him, and as they decide to gather evidence to confront Gareth, enemies from a neighboring land arrive to take Gwendolyn. Gareth has promised her as a bride to their leader, and Thor and his companions must fight them off at the same time Godfrey searches for evidence of his brother's attempt at murder.

Meanwhile, an even deadlier enemy has approached both the MacGils and McClouds. Emperor Andronicus commands a vast land and extraordinary power, but has been prevented by entering the lands of the MacGils and McClouds by magical means. King McCloud's life ends suddenly when the Destiny Sword, which keeps the magical barrier in place, is suddenly stolen. This forces Thor to attempt to recover the sword even as the mighty and terrifying Emperor brings his forces into their land.

A Clash of Honor is a tightly-packed tale of sword and sorcery, with many major characters and several intersecting plots. As part of a series, a Clash of Honor thrusts the epic saga forward by the introduction of a far more serious and threatening enemy than the characters have ever known, and each of the heroes survives by trusting and relying on one-another, and many sections of the novel are devoted to sub-plots that seem destined to connect with the larger story in the next book. The book ends just as the real threat to the world becomes apparent. Thor, who has been growing increasingly close to Gwendolyn, manages to alienate himself by agreeing to attempt to recover the Destiny Sword, and that promises to be the central quest of the next installment.
