 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.

  1. I write books with a large cast of characters, too, so it's always interesting to see how other authors balance a large cast, and how readers respond. I think it's wonderful that you were able to keep them all straight. That gives me hope... ;-)
