Review: A Cast of Stones by Patrick Carr

About the Book

In the backwater village of Callowford, Errol Stone’s search for a drink is interrupted by a church messenger who arrives with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Desperate for coin, Errol volunteers to deliver them but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he’s joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.

Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom’s dynasty is near an end and a new king must be selected. As tension and danger mount, Errol must leave behind his drunkenness and grief, learn to fight, and come to know his God in order to survive a journey to discover his destiny.

You know me, I like me some fantasy and this book? Me likey.

I saw this book on a blog tour invite months ago and as much as I wanted to join the tour and get the chance to review the book, I just couldn’t add another book to my massive review pile. Weeks later I saw that it was free on Amazon Kindle so I grabbed it without hesitation. I didn’t get to read it until days later and that was only because my sister read it and said it was really good. I trust in sister dear’s good taste so I veered away from my review pile for a moment and read the book. I’m glad I gave in to curiosity because this was such an enjoyable read.
