The Crown Princess Samantha and peasant sorcerer, Robrek, struggle to solidify their rule in the aftermath of the king’s murder. They are opposed by those who seek power for themselves and desire to prevent their marriage. As if that wasn’t enough, a deadly curse begins to spread throughout Korthlundia. While Samantha fights against priests, enemies, and her closest advisors, Robrek sets off to discover the source of the curse. He learns the reason the goddess chose him as king: to defeat the Soul Stone, a stone capable of sucking the soul out of its victims. Their archenemy, the Bard Alvabane, awakens the Soul Stone and plans to use its power to reclaim Korthlundia for her people, a people driven out over a thousand years ago by the hero Armunn. Armunn had to sacrifice his life and soul to contain the Soul Stone. Will Robrek have to do the same?
BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESY OF AMAZON
I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.
THE SOUL STONE is a great book where good triumphs over evil. Robrek is a mixed blood healer with magic, and is set to marry the Crown Princess Samantha and become her consort. There are some that think a mixed blood Cothla should not be marrying the Princess. When an old threat breaks loose again, Robrek must save his wife and unborn daughter at all cost. Someone has unleashed the soul stone from the barrier that held it back for hundreds of years. With the deaths of so many of the Korthian priestesses dead, there are not enough to perform the ritual the ancient evil behind the shield of Armunn’s soul. Now it is loose and destroying everything in a fifty mile radius from it. Will Robrek have to give up his life to save everyone that he loves. This book has action, adventure, and love. The characters and story line are well-developed. I give THE SOUL STONE 5/5 STARS. Lovers of the fantasy genre will love this book, so I recommend it to everyone.
