Reviews for A Cast of Stones

Write a review
  • Will definitely be buying the next two books in this trilogy5

    Colleen "'A Cast of Stones' by Patrick W. Carr is both his first novel and the first book in 'The Staff & The Sword' trilogy. It is an epic fantasy set in a world where the church is second only to the king, though seemingly not by much...

    ...When I begun this and realized how heavily the church features in the story, I was a little unsure how I would like it; I was worried it was going to end up being some kind of very in-your-face kind of tale about an obvious sinner changing his life for the better as he gives himself over to religion or something. I am happy to report, however, that this was not at all the case. 'A Cast of Stones' is a fantasy adventure absolutely rife with action and intrigue...

    ...We are given an unlikely hero in Errol at the beginning: he starts off an emotionally scarred boy with a chip on his shoulder who drowns his mental faculties in ale the moment certain memories begin to surface, until he eventually becomes physically dependent on alcohol. He is a complete mess, and everyone in the village tolerates it because everyone in the village pities him. What we are left with by the end of A Cast of Stones is a quietly powerful, perceptive, and determined young man with a head full of sense on his shoulders...

    ...I received this book through LibraryThing's Early Reviewers program, and I wish I'd gotten to it much sooner than I did, because I ended up enjoying it pretty thoroughly..."
