CSFF Blog Tour - A Cast of Stones free - August 2013

Julie again for the CSFF Blog Tour! (Coming to you from the past. Ooooh.)

Being on the western side of the US, I have to write my posts the night before...so tonight (Monday night) I'm going to try to plow through the last 100 pages of Patrick W. Carr's The Hero's Lot (or sacrifice my Tuesday writing/lunch period). So hopefully I'l have a review by Wednesday.

But I'll try to keep it brief, as I'm pretty sure it'll be like my review for A Cast of Stones. If you like that sort of story, you'll like the series. If you don't like epic tales of kings and corrupt churches and kingdoms falling into darkness and such, then it's probably not for you. I was hoping that characterization would pull me through (it actually worked for me with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy) but (aside from Errol) I just couldn't get into the characters.

But if you do like that sort of thing, or want to give it a try for free, I understand for the rest of August 2013, A Cast of Stones is free on Kindle and Nook. (Always double-check that it's still free before downloading, unless you don't mind buying it!)

As of this moment, it's still at 4.5 stars on Amazon, so I'm guessing that it is a very good read for the kind of people who like that sort of thing.

As for me, well...it is kind of interesting to learn what kind of things I really don't like!

*In conjunction with the CSFF Blog Tour, I received a free copy of this book.


  1. Yeah, time zones can wreck havoc on schedules. Good luck with reading.

  2. Isn't it interesting what sort of books we like/don't like? I've learned a lot about what I don't like following the CSFF Blog Tour. I really did like these two books though, maybe because I like books that are action/adventure and YA--both of which are focused on the action more than on character development.

    Good articulation on what you liked and didn't like about it. :-)
