Overview

The Historian chances upon Surac, a land where people's destinies are defined by powerful pendants they have from birth, called Stones. Those whose Stones give them useful skills call themselves Creators, and isolate themselves from all others with a wall that splits the entire continent. When Aric, a Creator blacksmith, has a son born with a Stone that marks him for violence and destruction, they find themselves in danger from those they called their friends.

When the boy, Sadavir, is ultimately banished, he discovers secrets far darker than the villagers' petty prejudices. On the far side of the wall, he learns the origin of the Stones' magic and a war that dates back centuries. As he uncovers the true power locked in the Stones, he must find a way to unite ancient enemies in order to save his family. To stop a genocide, Sadavir must face his own destiny of violence.

    Couldn't put it down!

    Was just a little slow to start, but after a little bit I really got into it and really connected with the characters. Excellent fantasy.

    Excellent

    I loved this story and am glad I stumbled onto it. For being free I expected it to be short and rushed but this had a great deal of work poured into it. I look forward to read other tales of the Historian and his travels.
