Ian Troy is a Shinree, fallen people with an inherent addiction to magic Shinree are bred as slaves due to their scorned and reviled for the deadly side of their spells. Their magic is being supressed by drugs and used only as it serves the purposes of the other race. Descended from a long line of soldiers Ian has been conscripted into the Rellan Army that are made to fight for their longstanding conflict against Langorian invaders that are ruthless. But with the downfall of Rela imminent, Ian goes against his orders and turns to the Crown of Stones which is an ancient Shinree relic of untold power. With Ian being ignorant of the relics true purpose, Ian uses the crown to end the war, and pays a terrible price.

A decade later Ian is still tortured by the aftermath of that day, Ian now lives the life as a bounty hunter in self-imposed exile. With him having renounced his magical heritage, he curbs his obsession with a steady stream of wine and regret. But as he struggles to put it all behind him, until one fateful encounter with a pretty assassin that brings Ian’s past crashing into his present. When Ian is targeted by a rogue Shinree and a ruthless old enemy he forced to use his magic again, but with this comes a price. His deadly addiction is rekindle and his life of isolation is brought to a swift end. But the land he once gave up to protect is once more in jeopardy and his future people as stake, he becomes embroiled in a violet race for control of the control of the Crown of stones. In order to save the realms and those he cares for, Ian must embrace the thing hid fears most; his own power!

This is my first book by C.L. Schneider and defiantly won’t be the last.
It was a fast-paced read with a great imaginative world.

The Crown of Stone by C.L Schneider follows Ian Troy a Shinree, a breed of ancient people who had an addiction to dark magic and extreme power, they were once the most powerful and now been reduced to becoming slaves, except Ian Troy who was granted to be free on the proviso that he serves the kingdom of Rellan as a bounty hunter, a solider and whatever else the kingdom needs.

After finding the Crown of Stones during a huge battle between good and evil, he allows the magic to consume him, but with devastating consequences, after losing his queen and thousands of men Troy must do something to ease the guilt he feels from letting go of the magic within.

Troy has now put himself on a magic ban as he can’t face the guilt he feels when he uses it, the devastation he causes. But when he learns of a new war starting he can’t help but step up and allow the dark magic to consume him to save his kingdom and the people.

The Crown of Stones was well written and held a lot of magic in its pages, it took you on an adventure of one man’s struggle between what he feels is wrong and what he knows is right. the picture C.L Schneider paints of her characters is brilliant; you get a real sense of what they look like and how they feel. The way Troy feels are also expressed very well throughout the book and you get a good picture of his mental battle within, how he berates himself, and the morals of one man and how he is willing to amend them to become the hero the kingdom so desperately needs. If you love fantasy like Lord of the Rings you will love this book.

4 stars

Book 1 in a series of magical races and war. I love adult fantasy, and can say that magic price got me hooked instantly, intriguing, beautifully written, strong lead characters. The main character, Troy throw himself into exile in hope to forget the loss of life that he caused, forgotten but never forgiven by his enemies which he finds out along his travels.
Excellent fast paced fantasy world which Is believable through C. L. Schneider writing style, not boring or repetitive like some fantasy novels, totally captivating throughout the many fantastic lands and cities you read and brings the characters to life to the max. Love how there is a touch of history to educate and keep you fully engaged without becoming bored of the plot.
You're instantly drawn into the descriptive writing of this fantasy novel where magic is considered too dangerous to yield.
I love fantasy books and would say this is definitely in my top 10.
I can honestly say that any avid fantasy reader would not be disappointed with this book and would imagine this is going to be one heck of a series, would recommend to anyone. Fully impressed with book 1, couldn't put it down and look forward to book 2 and the complete series.
Utterly hooked is not enough to say about Magic Price.

Magic-Price, the first book in C. L. Schneider’s The Crown of Stones trilogy, follows the adventures of Ian Troy. Troy is one of the Shinree, which means that he can use magic and, unlike many of his people, his powers are not suppressed by members of other races who enslave the Shinree to benefit from their magic. As the story begins, however, Troy’s powers are being suppressed by another force - fear. Shinree magic draws energy from the lives of surrounding plants, animals and people, which all too often results in death. In Magic-Price, we meet an Ian Troy who has avoided using magic in over a decade following a battle which has left him and all the inhabitants of Mirra’kelan scarred. Unfortunately for Troy, turmoil is again building in the world and his famously destructive powers are desired by many for both defense and attack.
Magic-Price introduces us to a world that has been very well constructed. Throughout the novel, we are given glimpses into the history of various races and characters, and this history clearly shapes the motivations and actions of the characters we encounter. The magic system is explained in great detail as we go along, and allows for different characters to have abilities in different areas, as well as different levels of strength. Troy, and the reader, encounter a variety of characters from different backgrounds who all have different, but for the most part equally believable, motivations. This, along with the scenarios he finds himself in, throw up some very interesting and difficult moral challenges. The nature of Troy’s power alone presents numerous moral challenges as with each spell he casts he, and the reader, must weigh up the benefits of the spell against the price of the lives it will drain.
