The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price by C. L. Schneider – Review by Maura Harper

Magic-Price (The Crown of Stones, #1)Magic-Price by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

MAGIC-PRICE is Book 1 in “THE CROWN OF STONES” series and is an epic fantasy. It is one of those tales that has a moral built into the story and it could actually be applied to some of events in currently present in the world. Good vs Evil – Action vs Reaction – Life vs Death.

Addiction [əˈdikSH(ə)n] NOUN: the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity. One wouldn’t think addiction to magic could be real, but clearly the main protagonist is addicted to his gift. The compulsive transfer from one addiction to another without treating the underlying cause is the theme to this book.

There are many characters that we are introduced to. This is a story that is told from the MCs POV and each character he introduces us to is explained so as to prevent any confusion. The story seems well plotted and has a very strong beginning, middle and end. It’s a story that keeps the reader engaged by moving from one situation to another in a well defined time frame, always moving the story forward.

This is not a story I read in one sitting. It is a little different from the books I normally pick up and I’m glad I had an opportunity to read this one.

I look forward to the next installments of this epic trilogy.
