Susan King has done what many authors before her have attempted to do, yet failed. She has combined suspense, romance, history and action to bring forth a wonderful story that will stay in the readers thoughts long after the book has been finished. I am already ordering Ms. Kings other works. I only hope that they can come close to the brilliance that is 'The Stone Maiden'. I love it!!!!!

    Good Read.

    This is my first book by Ms. King. It is about four hundred pages. The book starts off nicely but i find the lead female too stubborn, but the drama is okay. The male lead starts out like an alpha male, which i love but then gives in. The female is not a leader but rather follows what her kin wants. The romance was okay. The male came across as too weak for me. I probably will not buy anymore of Ms. King books.
