The king is dead, long live the future queen, Crown Princess Samantha, but does everyone wish her a successful rule? The kingdom has always loved her, but rumors abound and those she has been closest to are gone. Her advisers are suspect and have their own agenda, and Robrek is like her Achilles heel, she loves him dearly, but he comes from peasant stock and he is a sorcerer. Robrek has the people divided and many enemies in positions of power to contend with. At every turn, he is maligned as Samantha struggles to maintain control midst growing discontent and evil machinations. A deadly curse is cast upon the land and all life is weakening and dying; no living entity is spared. The curse of the Soul Stone has been awakened and Robrek has been chosen to destroy the stone to save his world. Meanwhile, he watches as his beloved Sam crumbles under the weight of ruling, dissent and watching her people die. Has the power of being the Queen become a curse for her? If Robrek does not succeed in his mission how many lives will be lost? His? Sam’s? The Soul Stone by Jamie Marchant is true epic fantasy, filled with intrigue, romance, love, pain and loss, as well as the life-threatening battle between good and evil. Ms Marchant gives us heroes with flaws, insecurities and guilt for some of their actions. How often do you see doubt or fear in the eyes of a ruler? You will see them in Sam and Robrek. You will also see compassion, caring and the love they share. Enter their world and feel what they feel, see their memories, follow their journey to save the land and win the hearts of the people. Jamie Marchant has a sorcerer’s pen, it creates a magical tale from simple strokes of black on white. I was hooked from the beginning! Leaving this world was like a curse in itself! I received this copy from Jamie Marchant in exchange for my honest review.
