Présentation de l'éditeur

Epic Fantasy combines with Young Adult romance in this stunning new adventure set in a richly developed medieval world. Second Stone and Broken Stone are now available! Also be sure to look for Jaded Stone, the thrilling prequel to the Souls of the Stones series.

When Emariya Warren learns enemy forces have captured her father, she'll do anything to save him. Anything. Even marry a mysterious prince she knows nothing about in order to rally the strength to arrange a rescue. During her journey to Torian's foreign castle, Emariya comes face to face with her mother's killers--and a deadly secret.

Not only does Emariya possess a powerful but unexpected magical gift passed down through each of her families, the prince she's promised to marry possesses a third, and an ominous prophecy has warned the three gifts must never be combined.

If she breaks her promise to marry Torian, she won't be able to save her father and if she keeps it, she may bring a curse upon everything she holds dear. Determining which choice is best won't be easy, but when she meets the gorgeous prince who may desire more than just her heart, she realizes she will have to fight just to have a choice at all.

Her heart wants him desperately. Her head begs her to run. If she doesn't want to share her mother's fate, she'll have to find a way to untangle the truth from the lies in time to save herself.

Discover the heartbreaking betrayals, fascinating magic and fated love of Cornerstone.

SECOND EDITION, February 2014

I was hooked. Now I am waiting for the next installment. Cornerstone is loaded with depth and details. I like the "this love is bigger than the both of us" angle.
The writer makes you feel, right from the beginning, that the details are going to be all important and if you will continue reading you will be rewarded very soon. Oh and was I ever rewarded!! Cornerstone was a great read. I can't wait for the next book.

Par Meanwhile, Melinda - Publié sur Amazon.com

T say that I was taken aback at the quality of the writing of the heroine (protagonist) would be an understatement. Many of the other characters fall into your stereotypical roles, but our blushing, warm, strong, magical, and independent heroine was characterized so well that it actually carries the story quite well. There are a number of story arcs that weave together to form the plot - one is a power play t take over the three kingdoms to make them one, another is to rescue the heroines father from his prison cell, another is to find out and control the power of the magic of the three stones. These three things are all inextricable, and our heroines potential marriage to Prince Ahlen could bring disaster, or the power to bring peace to everyone, but with everyone trying to kill her, she doesn't know which way to turn, and who is telling the truth and who is just out for their own greed or power.

If this book had more character development, had greater polish, removed the stereotypes, and improved the dialog, it could easily have lifted itself into the five star range. As I got it for free, this was a rare treat indeed, and I commend the author for providing such a wonderful level of writing for the entire world at no charge. The story is terribly exciting at a non-stop pace with characters that you care about in the middle of problems that you will want to see solved.

The biggest complaint I had about the book was the ending. It is what I call a MIT ending or Moment In Time. One minute the book is there, the next minute the book ends. Nothing is solved. Nothing is wrapped up. No story arcs are cleanly resolved. Typically, an event occurs at the end of the book that throws some type of monkey wrench into the main situation, or adds new light on the situation. Frankly, these types of endings make me want to scream. If my Kindle would not have broken, I would have thrown it - overhand into the corner with vim and vigor! Other than that, that book is really quite good. I am deciding if I am too insulted by the ending to buy the follow on book or not. I want to continue the story, but it was an underhanded was for me to continue. The story is definitely good enough to stand up on its own merits without the cheap tricks of MIT endings to get readers to buy follow on books.

Par Little Book Star - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is full of awesomeness! A must read! Yes, it's a fantasy with princess, princes, kings, queens and kingdoms, but the ideas within that were very well thought of. I have to admit, the first 60 pages was kind of confusing for me, maybe just because the author was still introducing us to the novel. As the story progresses it was just getting better and better and more exciting! It's filled with action and it left me predicting. I really like the idea of having 3 kingdoms and there is a different gift for each kingdom, but only if you're in the line (which were the princess, kings, etc.). Look at that cover, isn't it gorgeous!? The summary basically says it. I hate it when a book's summary is nothing like the story, but in Cornerstone, that's what you're going to expect. To be more straightforward, Emariya, the princess of Eltar is on a journey to Thalmas (another kingdom) with her escorts where she is to be married to my future husband (IN MY DREAMS) prince Torian. During their journey, a bunch of twisted events happened that left me at the edge of my seat!

Although it's 3rd person point of view, I could relate to the characters which I think the author did a marvelous job! I rarely, rarely, rarely, have crushes on the hero and Torian Ahlen is definitely one of them :"> Hehee... I wish I was Emariya right now. There is sorta' a love triangle in the book with of course Emariya (the princess), Torian (my prince!), and Emariya's super kind and caring best friend Garith. I also love Garith because he is such an understanding and trust worthy guy. The characters are such likable and I feel like I was watching a movie! So the bad guy here is... I'm not telling you, but I'm pretty sure you won't like him. You would suspect that he's the bad guy, but you'll see his worst at the end of the novel. What he did was definitely a shocking revelation!

For the writing style, it was good! It switched from different perspectives, but not most of the time. It usually switched off when the characters were in different places which was just a couple of times. The pacing wasn't too slow or too fast which I liked. There were several typos though and I encountered some sentences that had a missing word in between words. I mean, there were sentences that if you read them, you feel like there should be a certain word to make the whole sentence much clearer and not choppy. There were also punctuation mistakes, and the commas were overused. For the plot, I would definitely give it a 5/5. If you're up for adventure, love triangle, and excitement, then go and buy Cornerstone right now! I'm totally gonna look out for the rest of the series. The ending, oh my goodness, was a cliff hanger but that's okay because that means there's a whole lot more revelation to come in the next books! Overall I recommend this to each and every human being. (;

"Daughter of stone, child of two. Choose your path and the way will open to you." - from Cornerstone

Make sure to visit Kelly's website because she's having a virtual book tour! The links of the blogs participating is posted on there. There's also a picture of a map with the 3 kingdoms and it really helped me visualize of what path our protagonists were taking. I hope you guys enjoy reading this book if you are going to because I sure did!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best YA Fantasy I have read in a while. 24 octobre 2012
Par Contagious Reads - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I was provided a copy of this book for review by the author for my honest opinion. This review first appeared on Parajunkee.
This book was awesome. The first half of the book was slow-moving as Ms. Walker establishes her characters and plot and then she flips it straight into epic-dom. Not a word. I know it's not a word, but it fits the last half of this book. I am actually kind of struggling trying to write this review. It's part speechlessness and part we'll talk about that part...no, spoiler. Well then this part...no, spoiler. What I can tell you is that there is a huge twist in this book and I did not see it coming.

The book opens with the death of Riya's mother. (I'm not even going to try to spell her full name. I will murder it.) While the whole scene is vague it leads the reader to believe that something fishy and perhaps a bit supernatural is going on. In chapter one we are in "present" time and ready to begin on Riya's journey. We discover that her father has been missing for some time and eventually we learn that he has been kidnapped by the rival land. (At least that is what everyone assumes. When you find out who really takes him....grrr.) The story continues from there. Her brother is the leader of their council. While, Riya does not have an actual seat on the council, she feels responsible for her people and will do anything to ensure that they do not go to war against Sheas. Even if it means marrying the neighboring lands king...who she soon suspects has ulterior and not too awesome reasons for seeking the marriage
The characters are richly detailed. I can picture them easily in my head. The same for the landscape and world the story is in. Ms. Walker brings both to the forefront without unintentionally overwhelming the reader with its grand scale (think George RR Martin's overlong descriptions of rugs and food). I was a bit confused over the actual time period that this novel takes place within. I spent a large amount of time picturing an Arthurian time, only to have Riya get shot at with guns. I realize this is a fantasy book, I can't help but relate books to our history. This is my one and only critique of the book. Which as you can tell, is my own addle brain not being able to completely embrace pure fantasy.
Prince Torain is darkly handsome, and strangely compelling to both Riya and the reader. Did I mention Alpha Male material? No. Well, he comes very close. I feel in the next book he will come into his Alpha Maleness. Riya doesn't trust him most of the time but that doesn't stop her attraction to him. Once Riya is on her journey the movement of the plot picks up and I found myself unable to leave my kindle for more than five minutes at a time. Once we meet Torain, I was completely unable to even put it down. He enriches the story in a variety of ways. Firstly, we are trying to figure out his motives. Once we are reasonably sure why he wants Riya so badly, we are trying to figure out if she is drawn to him for him, or because of supernatural reasons. There is a huge plot point that I assumed to be true. It left me scratching my head and saying to myself; "No, it can't be" time and time again as we get to know Torain and his sister Torin. Did I mention he is tall, with dark brown hair and gray eyes. Yum. I love the contrast of dark features with light eyes. Riya feels the same.
She turned to him in surprise, about to scold him, but he looked so sincere that she merely blushed. She had to get away from this man. He was much like the waterfall before her. Dangerous, yet captivating.
I strongly recommend this book to YA readers who are looking to be lost in another time and place. Like I was. While it doesn't have the steamy scenes that an adult book does there are a few moments of passion that lead me to believe that the next book will blow-me-away!
My first five star review on Parajunkee is complete. I think I must treat myself to a Mountain Dew now.
If you like epic coming of age tales I suggest you read Tamara Rose Blodgett's Pearl Savage and the following books to tide you over while you are waiting for book #2. Seriously, when is book 2 coming out? Must go stalk....
P.S. I loved this book so much I want a signed paperback copy to add to my signed library. Kelly Walker be warned stalking to commence in t-minus....well now.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great YA Fantasy. 2 juin 2013
Par Sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com

(Source: Downloaded for free from amazon.co.uk.)
16-year-old Emariya has not been thinking about marriage, until her brother Reeve tells her that Prince Torian of the neighbouring land of Thalmas, has asked for her hand in marriage.

At first Emariya refuses, but when she then finds that her father is imprisoned somewhere in the land of Sheas, she travels to Thalmas to meet with Prince Torian, and request that he help her rescue her father in return for her hand in marriage.

There is more at stake that Emariya doesn't know about though. It seems that the three different lands each had a family who had a special gift - seeing the future, communing with spirits, and being able to harness the earth's energy. Emariya's mother had one gift and her father another, making her a second stone, and Price Torian has the third gift. There is a prophecy which says that if all three gifts merge there could be catastophy.
Who is holding Emariya's father though? Will Torian help her to free him? What of the prophecy surrounding the stones? And can Emariya bring herself to marry someone she doesn't love for the good of her people?

This was a good YA fantasy novel, and I loved Emariya and her Prince!

Firstly I have to say that I love the name Emariya! So pretty!
Emariya was a sweet girl, and she really felt that she had the power to change things, even if that idea was a little naïve. It was nice how she tried to stand up for what she believed in, and wanted to marry for love. She also wanted to do what was best for the kingdom though, and purposefully tried to find a way to help that didn't involve her marrying someone she had never even met.

Torian was a great character. Even though Emariya thought that it was his idea to bind the stones, she still found him charming and couldn't help but like him. I liked him too, and I was really hoping that the two of them would end up together.

My least favourite character was Emariya's brother Reeve, who seemed quite selfish, and didn't seem to care who he had to hurt to get what he wanted. He really was a spiteful character, and I really wanted him to get what he deserved.

I liked the storyline in this book, and unlike a lot of fantasy books I didn't find the plotline difficult to keep up with! I liked the way the three warring areas were described and their reasons for the strife seemed genuine. There wasn't a lot of romance, but it was obvious the way that Emariya and Torian were drawn to each other.
I liked the ending, although it was left very open for the next book in the series.
Overall; a great first instalment in this YA fantasy series.
7.5 out of 10.
