An Epic tale of a young woman full of courage; bound by honor and tradition and respect. She will do unimaginable feats to do her duty to the King and wat she considers just. Great for fans of George R. R. Martin. Note: I received a copy from Netgalley for review purposes.

This is a novella that comes with an epic story! With an excellent storyline, world continuation, and fantastic characters, you enter the world of Razors, the Academy and those people who believe in the dream. Friendships are forged but will they survive the fires? Elinor is a feisty woman, sworn to uphold her duty to the King. It comes out in the story that she can't be bribed and she won't look the other way. But being such a character in a field of deception and intrigue is not so good for your health, as Elinor finds out. Fast-paced, with plenty of action, and a storyline to thrill, this is a novella to read and enjoy. A perfect coffee break book. * I received this book from the authors in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through Net Galley. We are taken to a world of unexpected things. This author crafts a story that is good for both teens, and adults. I breezed through this book. It was a very short, and very different book. I would recommend this book to people that are into more historical fantasy. This takes place in a time long ago. Elinor is a reaper, but not a grim reaper. All the same she is important, and a vital piece of this story. I loved the first part of the story, because it had a creepy creature in it, and brought the story to life. From then the story seemed to skip into the future a bit. There were some parts of this story that I thought a few things could have used a little more building in the story. I became a little confused at the mention of the academy, because there was not a lot said about it. The charters were well built, although I feel like something was missing, something that might have helped me understand more of what exactly was taking place, and why in the story. For example I would like to know a little more about the main character, and how she got to be where she is now. I liked the main characters attitude, and ambition, therefore I would love to get to know her better, and really know just how she became to be this fantastic character.

Reviewed by Brittney Rossie for Readers' Favorite A Reaper of Stone is the first novella in the An Echo Of The Ascended series by Mark Gelineau and Joe King and centers around an idealistic warrior girl named Elinor. Her time in the academy isn’t much different than real life in regards to bullies, but the stakes are much, much higher. Teaming up with her engineer friend, Conbert, she must decide whether or not to act on the new knowledge that the lineage of a noble line is not dead and if she should perform the ceremony that transfers their power to a corrupt noble. Guided on principle, she discovers the legends she bought into as a young cadet are in fact founded in reality and have clues for her survival embedded in them. But some things must simply be learned on the go and new legends must be told. This is an extraordinary, bite-sized epic fantasy that somehow is able to include all the character arc development and world building required to write a satisfactory and heroic fantasy without any extraneous details and fluff. I felt like it was 1/3 "Tremors", 1/3 "King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table", and 1/3 "Joan of Arc". It's a crazy mix that creates an interesting world that I can imagine hides lots of nooks and crannies just waiting to be explored. The novella reads almost like a movie script. Elinor is an admirable heroine who keeps the action flowing from beginning to end. Mark Gelineau and Joe King created an easily consumable sampler of fantasy for someone on the run with a craving for fantasy but without the time for 900 pages, or for someone just getting into the genre.
