I love the story line, and had a hard time putting it down. I especially appreciated the mixing of Korean, Chinese and American cultures. The story weaves between three primary characters, Yi Bae, his sister and Endora. Each of the characters are wonderfully flawed, human and believable. I can’t remember being this engrossed by a book since first reading the The Ninja by Lustbader. I can hardly wait to see what happens in the next installment. Hilarey Johnson has delivered a superb fantasy story that will enthrall young and old alike.

Stone of Asylum is part 1 of Hilarey Johnson's, author of Soveriegn Ground, new Fantasy series, Dance of the Crane. It's the story of fourteen year old Endora (This name totally gives me Bewitched vibes) whom after experiencing an epilepctic seizure is pulled from her father and sent to an underground insane asylum. She soon enough discovers the powerful garnet stone. And Endora must discover her own power to help bring together the Watchers to protect the garnet stone from the wrong hands. Stone of Asylum, part 1 of the Dance of the Crane Fantasy series, is an exciting, adventurous, and fast paced story. It is filled with complex characters, excellent story building, and hidden power. I also loved how Hilarey weaved Idaho history into a Fantasy setting. I'm also happy to know that this will be a trilogy which makes me feel better with how this story ended with no conclusion. This will be a story perfect for all Fantasy lovers.

I enjoyed the story of Yi Bae and his quest for his sister. Not being familiar with some of the terms in the story, the supernatural properties, etc. made reading seem a little slow at first and it took some time as I wove myself into the story line. I did enjoy the descriptive fighting scenes and how I could easily envision the battles. I identified with Eldora's story much faster and found myself anxiously awaiting to see when the two stories would intersect. Knowing that this is to be trilogy made the ending much easier to accept - without a resolution - where that may have bothered me otherwise. I think I shall find myself immersed into The Reckoner's Blade much more quickly as I am more familiar with the the story elements now. The characters stayed with me long after I finished reading. Overall a great story that I would highly recommend! Looking forward to the next book! I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review
