In The Cast of Stones, by Patrick W. Carr, Errol Stone is forced to join with the local priest and others when he is attacked while taking a message to them. Errol finds out that he is a reader and will have to go to the main church. He is separated from his group and has to join a caravan to get to the city where the rest of the group has gone. Will the rest of his group be safe? Who wants him captured?
My thoughts: I have been interested in fantasy books for many years. A Cast of Stones, by Patrick W. Carr is one of the best fantasy books I have read in many years.
The cast of characters, dialogue, and details were some of the best I have ever read in a fantasy book. As I read the book I could see the different religious and ethnic groups that could be represented in our world. There were a lot of different characters, but I was able to keep them straight. My favorite character was Errol. I liked him, because he wanted to be his own person, but he now has to be a part of the church. The part I liked the best was how he accepted his fate and how he decided to make life better because of it.
I highly recommend this book and series by Patrick W. Carr. Please buy a copy today and tell your local library if you like the book.
