Legend said that heartstone could cure any illness, but Thrylain the Great, the founder of Elinala, understood its real power and destroyed all heartstones.
Or so he said.
Seven hundred years passed and people forgot, When a crippled prince was born in Elinala, the king ordered his son's death. Many died trying to protect the child, and in the ensuing chaos the boy disappeared-along with a pendant from the royal treasury. Everyone believed that the child was dead and the pendant destroyed.
But they were wrong.
Now grown to manhood, Derrick's only clue to his past is his gold pendant with a long-forgotten heartstone. When Derrick tries to learn his true identity, the kingdom of Elinala is forever changed as hidden crimes are exposed, ancient evils set free, and the full power of heartstone is finally unleashed.

What People are Saying About This

Andrew Johanson

"With his latest book Heartstone, Schreiber employs a cinematic style and razor sharp dramatic prose to write the most romantic of genres-the modern fantasy novel."--(Andrew Johanson, Paradise Post)

Terry Campbell

"Schreiber has a wide range of imagination and the talent to put it into words. His imagination invents word pictures that spark the mind to envision a screen larger than Hollywood is capable of."--(Terry Campbell, News-Enterprise)
