The intrigue that Kane creates between two warring kingdoms while researching an ancient source of power keeps the reader enthralled in the book. Wagner's description of Kane's physical power makes him someone to admire rather than relate to but we still find ourselves cheering him on. While following Kane we get a glimpse of his mental skills that creates a respectful fear of the man. Kane is an anti-hero out for himself but faced with a daunting curse. Bloodstone is a great tale of prehistory when demi-gods walked among people.
