Every once in awhile when I’m reading through a plethora of book summaries, I’ll
come across one that makes me stop and think, “Well, this sounds like something
new!” Stonewiser – The Heart of the Stone was one such book summary. I found the
magic system of this story, stonewising, to be a fresh and innovative idea. The
story is fully fleshed out and includes characters with internal conflict,
struggle and growth; humor; stories within stories (swoon!); betrayal; battle
scenes; a little dab of romance; and much more – all in appropriate portions. An
added bonus – Machado includes the first chapter of book 2, The Call of the
Stone, at the end, along with a beautiful rendering of Sariah. I recommend this
book to anyone who is looking for something original to enjoy!
