Cast Of Stones by Patrick W. Carr: A Review

When first we meet Errol Stone he is an orphan, left alone and bereft of all the comforts of a home and family. His transformation from scrawny drunk to hero is a long
arduous story. In the world of this strange kingdom, decisions are made by the casting of lots, carved orbs that only 'readers' can understand. When Errol discovers his ability as a reader goes far beyond the usual, he still doesn't understand his own purpose.

Not until he gives up drink for good, and perfects the art of fighting with the staff does he begin to have a sense of his destiny, and here the story pauses. A blurb on the front hints of more adventures of Errol to come. A compelling read, and full of inspiration.

I was given a copy of The Cast of Stones from Bethany House in return for my honest opinion.
