I found i was really able to sympathise with Katie, she's not much older than me and also unlucky in love (so i found the ending to this hopeful for myself as well lol) so it was very easy to relate to her.
Jorlan on the other had i hated at first, i think i described him as a sexist pig within the first 50 pages or so, which is a record for me.
I really hate sexism so everytime he made a comment about week women i wanted to punch him (which is impossible because he's fictional!)
Once i got past all that though, i have to admit i slowly fell for Jorlan, as he learnt more about the world and how different woman can be, he slowly changed and stopped being such a prat (i was going to use a more coarse word but thought i'd be putting this on my blog and kids might read it!).
He is the perfect guy by about half way though the book and the way he treats Katie is a fantasy from every girls dreams, i was reading it thinking, now why can't that happen to me?
The sci-fi part of it, was done perfectly, not to complex yet enough to distinguish this book from among your usual romances. The plot outside the romance was important yet not too complex and there was a lot more to love than just between Jorlan and Katie, and all sorts of relationships. There was even a bit of redemptive love for one of the characters, and by the end i couldn't even hate the bad guy.
For a few minutes i thought it was going to be a sad ending, but it was an ending like i hadn't quite read before, rather unusual in any case.
Anyways i loved it soooooo much! Full five stars!
Interesting seems an understatment after reading it fully. i read it cover to cover in one day, it had me hooked from the beginning.
i really recommend this book to anyone who loves romace stories written with the modern attitude!!
For over 900 years Jorlan is trapped in his stone prison, mentally crying out to the woman who can free him. His efforts are fruitless until Katie James hears his mental pleas and puckers up. A hardworking renovator, she is not prepared to admit that she only bought her current property because of the magnificent statue it housed. Breaking Jorlan's curse, she has difficulty believing her stone statue is now a living, breathing alien hunk, a chauvinistic jerk who freely admits he wants her heart and body in order to return home and has no intention of returning her feelings. Despite her inexperience, Katie knows a heart breaker when she meets one and the luscious Jorlan would surely break hers when he leaves. She therefore does the only thng she can to protect herself, she steels herself not to fall in love.
Jorlan cannot understand this strange woman and rather than her falling in love with him, he instead finds himself feeling emotions towards Katie that he has never felt before. As Katie allows their relationship to deepen (carefully guarding her heart whilst doing so) Jorlan finds himself meeting 4 of her 5 brothers, siblings fearlessly determined to protect their sister from any hurt. Learning that Jorlan intends to leave Katie within 2 weeks results in a fight, the James brothers proving more than capable of holding their own against a well trained Imperian warrior (not that they know that). Witnessing the love between these family members creates a desperate need in Jorlan to return home, however now he wants Katie by his side. Offering himself as her life-mate he asks her to live on Imperia with him, an offer she declines. With only days to go before the curse re-instates itself, Percen arrives on Earth. Determined to hurt Jorlan in every way possible, he targets Katie.
"The Stone Prince" is filled with charm, humour, passion and action. Katie's brothers create chaos, their untimely arrivals resulting in some hilarious consequences. This book also really tugged at my heartstrings, making me quite weepy towards the end when Katie proves she's willing to give up everything after all to stay with the man she loves. I urge all fans of GS's "The Pleasure Slave" to take the time to locate a copy of this book - you will not be disappointed.
