Publisher's Summary

The Historian chances upon Surac, a land where people's destinies are defined by powerful pendants they have from birth, called Stones. Those whose Stones give them useful skills call themselves Creators and isolate themselves from all others with a wall that splits the entire continent. When Aric, a Creator blacksmith, has a son born with a Stone that marks him for violence and destruction, they find themselves in danger from those they called their friends.

When the boy, Sadavir, is ultimately banished, he discovers secrets far darker than the villagers' petty prejudices. On the far side of the wall, he learns the origin of the Stones' magic and a war that dates back centuries. As he uncovers the true power locked in the Stones, he must find a way to unite ancient enemies in order to save his family. To stop a genocide, Sadavir must face his own destiny of violence.

okay for a first book

The best part of this story is the paradigm shift you experience part way through, and it changes from fantasy to morality tale. The concept is interesting.

You get used to the narration, but in 99% of cases, authors should not read their books. This is proof of that.

Good story.

I liked it. A fascinating story idea. The readers voice can drone sometimes making it difficult to follow.

Wonderful story

I love the narrator, he offers a unique brand of wisdom and the humor makes me smile. I loved hearing the voices of the characters as the author intended through his own voice.
