Book Review – The Sound of the Stones #StonesTour

The ancient book about the past holds the future. Frankie is the key and as she reads the story begins to feel real. In another time, humans are oppressed by a strange half-human breed. But Ashra, holds the salvation of the human race. As other allies seek her out, Ashra and her companions must unravel the mysteries of the past in order to save their future. Beth Hammond’s fantasy novel has some very interesting aspects. I very much enjoyed the character of Ashra and how she begins to reluctantly realize her destiny. I hope that Ashra and several other intriguing characters are more fleshed out in subsequent books. The story does a good job of introducing all the necessary back story along with exposition, however, the ending feels incomplete. And, while I understand that this is most likely setting up further entries in a series, I wish this particular story came to a proper conclusion. That and Ms. Hammond’s writing style, which I feel is slightly underdeveloped, were my main complaints with an otherwise engaging fantasy novel.

*Disclosure: I was provided a free copy of this novel with a request for an honest review.*
