Description

The lies could kill her, but the truth could destroy a kingdom.

Given a rare TruthStone, Shaeleen suffers immense agony with every lie she hears or tells. While struggling to control her new power and curb the pain she learns a powerful truth that could thrust an entire continent into civil war.

The stones of power protect the five kingdoms of Wayland - and have done so for two hundred years. Now those stones are failing and a dark power threatens to take control. With the help of her brother, and a young thief, Shaeleen sets out on a dangerous journey to gather and restore the power of all the stones.

Shaeleen can either reveal the truths she finds and stop the physical torment or hold on to the lies and sacrifice her own well-being for the sake of the kingdom.

Will she succeed before the endless lies destroy her?

Review quote

"This is a great story with breathtaking action, captivating and well-developed characters and a huge conflict. The protagonist is a young woman who is entrusted with a powerful gift and it is interesting how she grows to accept and to take responsibility of her gifts. Readers will love the way she is created as a character -- not as all-powerful, but a flawed character. She suffers because of the power of what she carries and readers easily learn to feel for and care about her. I love stories with well-developed conflict, where lives are at stake, but balancing conflict with realism is a rare gift and Mike Shelton has it. TruthStone has great pacing, and is shrewdly plotted and well balanced." - Romuald Dzemo at Readers' Favorite

"In TruthStone, Shaeleen, a young woman who is unique and confident young woman, is given a special gift by a strange woman. A TruthStone... I loved how she was displayed as a normal down to earth character...With the TruthStone, she has been entrusted with a very important mission. Along her fantastic journey she meets key characters that will help her on her way as well as realizing her own strength and abilities. This was a well written, exciting novel that I could not put down. Young adults and adults alike can enjoy the adventure and risk that Shaeleen takes on. This was an excellent start to a new series from Mike Shelton." - workingmommyjournal.ca

It was so captivating with great characters and an amazingstoryline.I loved that she had flaws. She wasn't some goody too shoes or aperfect heroine. This author nailed it!
