Book Review: A Cast of Stones.

A Cast of Stones (The Staff and the Sword, #1)A Cast of Stones by Patrick W. Carr
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

What a great additions to the Fantasy genre and right in the wheelhouse of the GRR Martin explosion on HBO and in the public. The best part is that he tends to be the PG/PG-13 version of the Fantasy genre troupe. Patrick W. Carr has developed a new world with fantasy at its core. Errol Stone is a boy lost in a world consumed with magical myth and echoes the likes of Martin, Brooks, and Pratchett. This long but quick read takes us on the journey of discovery as Errol finds his abilities and and begins to define himself. The interesting part is that Patrick W. Carr separates himself from Lawhead, Stephen the other major christian fantasy writer from the past decade. Instead of moving back and forth in time. This story is rock solid in the medieval period.
This is the first in a series and I look forward to more from him in the future.

I read this book as a part of a review for NetGallery.
