A Cast of Stones
Errol Stone little realizes just how much his sorry life will be changed when a church messenger stumbles into town with a message for a hermit and Errol agrees to make a short journey to earn money to fuel his addiction to ale. Soon, it becomes clear to him that all is not as it seems, from the village hermit and his supposed servant to the owner of the inn that Errol frequents. Hunted by deadly assassins, the motley crew sets out on a journey to the countries palace to cast stones in order to discover who the next king will be.
When I first started this book, I wasn't sure what to think about it. Then, I got into the story and it just blew me away! The story is engrossing and epic as Errol pulls himself out of the ale barrel and embraces the young man he was created to be. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!
