My Thoughts......

This was a well written wonderful magical fantasy read with interesting main characters  [Jack & Jasminda], setting[Elsira, which is a land of Silents People], love and oh yes beautiful magic [Earthsong powers]  "Song of Blood & Stone" will definitely a enthralling read that will keep your attention turning the pages to see what was coming next.  Be ready for 'sex scenes, mentions of rape, racism, mystery, action paced, with humanity, love, romance, history, war violence, political drama, adventure and in the end giving one quite a riveting tale' that will keep you captivated in this fantasy world.    It was interesting seeing this unlikely pair Jack & Jasminda who will 'face undue scrutiny due to their different skin colors.'  Now to get more of this story you will have to pick up this read to see how well this author brings it all out and in the end giving the reader a wrapped up thought provoking story.  I did like at the beginning of each chapter there was a quote from collected folktales which went so well with each schapter.
