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.Read more ›
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.
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 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.Read more ›
