The Stones Will Tell by Leif Baumann

Everyone has two eyes, two hands, and two feet as well as two stones. So, why should it make any difference?

The Duke of Yenthorol is too old for all this. Ryl is under invasion while it struggles to find and crown its next king among all the claimants, and the problem is not made any easier when he discovers an ancient prophecy is guiding the actions of so many of the players involved.

During the seasonal lull in the fighting, most of the nobles back one or the other of two claimants for the throne: one of questionable heritage and the other of dubious character. Yenthorol tries to keep a firm grip on the ship of state until the Wizards get into the mix, proving the ancient prophecy's importance.

It seems the only one who can save them is a Hero they have been anticipating for centuries. But there is one problem: they still do not know who the Hero is. And from their intense studies they are fairly certain the Hero does not yet know he has this awesome power.

Stuck between the reality of being forced to place a fraud on the throne and the fantasy of the Wizards and their ancient prophecies, Yenthorol trods a perilous path in search of peace and security for his country.

About the Author

Novels of historical magic have always interested me. The novel THE STONES WILL TELL was the third iteration of an idea concerning the coming of a hero to save the land of Ryl. The other two iterations are being turned into volumes 1 & 2 of the series, A Hero for Ryl.

One thing that has always annoyed me in reading epic fantasy is all the time spent traveling during the tale. It might have worked for Tolkien and Eddings but I would rather develop my characters in other ways.

Hopefully, it will please you as well.
