Sariah has done the impossible many times over. In a world devastated by the rot's widespread destruction, she has unmasked the lies concealed in the sacred stones, discovered the shocking source of the ravaging rot, and found the only tale capable of uniting a warring people. Along the way she has wised the seven twin stones, experienced the Prism's destructive powers, and tangled with the mysterious Stone of Creation. Now, Sariah, the rogue stonewiser who stunned the world by escaping her master and defying the Guild, and Kael, the rebel leader who against all odds loves her, must confront their most difficult challenge yet: They must find a stolen child deemed by prophecy as an abomination but also the only one capable of setting rule upon chaos, preserving the future of stonewising and defeating the rot. The stakes couldn't be higher. The coveted child they seek is also their son.

About the Author
Dora Machado holds a master's degree in business administration and earned her bachelor's degree in history from Georgetown University. She is a Phi Beta Kappa, but thinks that motherhood is the greater accomplishment. She was born in Michigan and grew up in the Dominican Republic, where she developed a bilingual fascination for writing, a preference for history, and a taste for Merengue. After a lifetime of straddling such compelling but different worlds, fantasy is a natural fit for her stories. She is the only Hispanic woman writing epic fantasy in English and her first two books in the series received national awards.

Stonewiser: The Lament of the Stone based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Lately I have been more than disappointed by SFF series that seem to never end or that let me down with a simplistic ending. That is not the case with Machado's Stonewiser series. She is a master of the unexpected, but yet once it is revealed, you understand it was there all along. Her character development and world building skills are incredible and in a genre over populated with simple linear plots, Machado is a blessing with her twists. She is definitely on the "dark" side and is not a writer for children. But, if you want to get lost in a world where you feel for the characters, want to be taken away from everyday realities, want to escape into a rich believable world - This is the writer for you.
