Really enjoyable novel, with some excellent concepts and brutal use of magic. Ian (our hero) is battered both bodily and emotionally throughout the book.

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.

The Crown of Stones- Magic Price
C.L. Schneider
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.

Ten years after using the Crown of Stones to end a bloody conflict, Ian Troy has thrown himself into self-imposed exile in an attempt to forget his mistakes and the incredible loss of life he caused. But old enemies never forget, and they’re stirring in the realms of darkness to bring Troy’s harrowing past back to haunt him. Now, he has to forge new alliances and place his trust back in his magic if he is to defeat his greatest adversary yet.

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price, by C. L. Schneider, is a fast-paced adventure through a fantastical world that is made all the more believable by the author’s solid writing. The story takes us through many lands and cities, all of which are easy to see on the page, as Schneider does a good job of bringing this world to life. The main characters are engaging and likeable figures, easily keeping the reader interested, and Ian Troy’s obvious dark past and problems made him intriguing, even if he did sometimes make bad decisions. Listen to Malaq, dude, it’ll save you a lot of pain!

I have to be honest and say I haven’t read a lot of fantasy books so I have very little to compare Magic-Price to, to know how well it stacks up against other books in its genre, but this was an enjoyable foray into a world of swords and sorcery and mystical beasts. I often assume that fantasy books deliver a wide world that takes many hundreds of pages to describe and build, which has often put me off attempting to read in this genre, but thankfully this wasn’t the case with the Crown of Stones. The read is fast-paced, pulling you quickly from realm to realm and conflict to conflict.

"For ten years Ian Troy has been running from the blood in his veins and on his hands."

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price is book one of the Crown of Stones trilogy by C. L. Schneider. It is a fantasy story that is definately for an older reader. The story follow Ian Troy, a shinree solider - a magic wielding race from ancient times that are now used as slaves by the Langorian and Arullan people. Ian is an especially powerful soldier and is one of the only shinree people that are not used as slaves. He is under oath to protect Rella whenever it is needed but otherwise he is free. He was a champion in the last war and was lover to the Rellan queen Alyagar. After defying her orders and using the crown of stones to wipe out the Langorians, something goes wrong and everyone except Ian dies on the battlefield due to his magic. He left alone and guilty. But ten years later bad things are happening and Ian needs to come out of self inflicted solitary confinement. The world needs his help if only he's willing to use his magic again.

Words cannot describe how much I loved this book! I was thoroughly addicted from page one! The narrative is first person and from Ian's POV. This works wonderfully with the flashbacks and dream scenes in the book. It takes away the usual confusion and bother that flashbacks/dreams/memories usually do in a book because we can see clearly what is happening in the present and what is not. It gets really well and I am really impressed with how it works with the plot.
Ian's character is really mysterious and alluring upon first meeting him. He is an instantly likeable rogue that I kind of felt empathy for as he was alone and outcast. He thinks he is bad and is trying desperately to be, in his eyes, good and I just love the vulnerability in him.
