About the Author

Mark Barnes was born in Sydney, Australia, in September of 1966. A strong athlete, he was also drawn to the arts at a young age, penning his first short story as a seven-year-old. He worked in finance and advertising and eventually landed satisfying work in information technology, where he continues to manage a freelance organizational change consultancy. In 2005, when Mark was selected to attend the Clarion South residential short story workshop, he began to write with the intention of making it more than a hobby. Since that time Mark has published a number of short stories, worked as a freelance script editor, and has driven creative consultancy for a television series. The Garden of Stones is his first novel.

Like epic fantasies where the heroes are not always on the straight narrow? Want to forget about the world around you and enter into another realm filled with uniquely strange creatures, races and settings? The Garden of Stones by Mark T. Barnes feeds the imagination well in this world he has crafted. War and the quest for power and control is the enemy. When a young warrior/sorcerer steps up to assure that evil will not prevail. Will the odds be stacked against him? Is it too late to save the world from a brutal tyranny? Mark T. Barnes writes for the true fantasy lover, the person able to open their mind to a truly unique and fascinating world populated with strong, magnetic and fascinating characters among the many races he has created. Male and female characters alike are strong, personable and come to life under the guidance of Mr. Barnes’ pen as he draws life into them through his details. This is not a book to race through, but one to actually get lost in, to travel through, one page at a time. Enjoy the ebb and flow of each scene, take in each detail and believe in the unbelievable as presented through the words of a very talented author with a fertile imagination and wonderful sense of storytelling.

This is different then what I am reading at the moment and even tho I like to step away from certain genres this wasnt my kind of read. I thought it was well written and will make a good read for some one who is into this.
