The Crown of Stones: Magic-Scars by C.L. Schneider – Review by Roxsanne Lesieur.

Magic-Scars (The Crown of Stones, #2)Magic-Scars by C.L. Schneider
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ian Troy is back and he is recovering from his time in captivity, since his rescue, he is numb, his jailers took everything from him, his memories, his magic, his will and his freedom, as well as the freedom of his friends. As everything slowly and painfully returns he is recruited into a desperate rebellion against the High King Draken, a long time enemy of Ian’s and the one who kept him in the conditions he has just escaped.

He is tasked with the job of retrieving and repairing the Crown Of Stones, an object he has used in the past which creates the magic scars which cover his body, it is an artefact of his people which is now lost again, but which is needed to overthrow the High King. Ian is reluctant to use it again and put himself in the path of addiction his use of magic causes, but he knows he doesn’t really have a choice in the matter if he is to save his scattered friends.

What he cannot understand is why his scars are multiplying even though he is not using his magic, this is where he learns about his ancestry and the secrets which have been buried in the past, but can Ian reconcile the man he was, the man he is now and the man everyone needs his to be? This is a fantasy tale of good versus evil and all the grey areas in between, as a reluctant hero faces the past and future in order to save a world which he struggles to merge with, as you follow along on his adventures and feel everything along with his in this roller-coaster of emotion you will not want to put down.
