What is the ultimate price we pay for the ever-increasing levels of technology we attain? In the world of Victoria Strauss's THE ARM OF THE STONE, the cost of unfettered handpower is division from and loss of the most powerful and mystical parts of our minds. A young boy is raised on a secret prophecy about the return of balance to his sundered world. He sets out on a path of vengeance and fulfillment after losing his family to the ruling theocracy's cruel investigations. THE ARM OF THE STONE delivers both an engrossing trip through the story and one of the most impressive climaxes seen in the genre of late. It is a novel of loss, rage, and ultimately, one of hope.
