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. I love the take on the magic side of this story, it grew along with the story and depth to the story. I liked that we learnt of the world as Ian did.
The world in which this was written in was well developed, there was a great history that came along with it.
This book had a good amount of action without being too hectic to keep up with and character development that kept me hooked throughout. This is a rollercoaster of a ride that keeps throwing surprises till the very end!
The plot to this book is so well thought-out and I that the author created such a mentally visual book, I felt as though I was in the book with how the Author wrote it. The history between nations was believable, and the races – particularly the magic-addicted Shinree – were fascinating. The depth and darkness of the plot was what gripped me, from the beginning, but what connected me to this story even more was the characters. Each character in this book is well-described with a believable personality, and the main three characters are unique and wonderfully likeable.
This is defiantly an epic high fantasy read, that will have you hooked from the beginning! You will not regret dropping everything to read this. I can’t wait to read Book 2 in The Crown of Stones Series.
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.
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. There’s a fair degree of bad language and mild erotica in the book, so I’m not sure how die-hard fantasy readers will take this, but I read all genres so things like that don’t bother me.
A couple of negative issues jumped out at me, but thankfully they didn’t detract from the read at all. For example, our protagonist Ian Troy seemed too keen to distance himself from his followers and friends and do battle alone, instead of relying on the aid and assistance of those protecting his back. But hey, he’s our hero I guess and a hero does what he has to do in order to defeat the odds.
Overall The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price is a great read and has gone a long way to dispel my belief that fantasy novels are drawn-out journeys through worlds more complex than our own. Before I’d gotten half way through this book I found myself buying Magic-Scars, the second instalment in this trilogy, as I liked Schneider’s world and characters so much I knew I’d want to read more of it. Oh yeah, and I love the cover art too, very eye catching.
