A Cast of Stones

An Epic Medieval Saga Fantasy Readers Will Love

In the backwater village of Callowford, Errol Stone's search for a drink is interrupted by a church messenger who arrives with urgent missives for the hermit priest in the hills. Desperate for coin, Errol volunteers to deliver them but soon finds himself hunted by deadly assassins. Forced to flee with the priest and a small band of travelers, Errol soon learns he's joined a quest that could change the fate of his kingdom.
Protected for millennia by the heirs of the first king, the kingdom's dynasty is near an end and a new king must be selected. As tension and danger mount, Errol must leave behind his drunkenness and grief, learn to fight, and come to know his God in order to survive a journey to discover his destiny.

Author Patrick W. Carr

Patrick Carr was born on an Air Force base in West Germany at the height of the cold war. He has been told this was not his fault. As an Air Force brat, he experienced a change in locale every three years until his father retired to Tennessee. Patrick saw more of the world on his own through a varied and somewhat eclectic education and work history. He graduated from Georgia Tech in 1984 and has worked as a draftsman at a nuclear plant, did design work for the Air Force, worked for a printing company, and consulted as an engineer. Patrick’s day gig for the last five years has been teaching high school math in Nashville, TN. He currently makes his home in Nashville with his wonderfully patient wife, Mary, and four sons he thinks are amazing: Patrick, Connor, Daniel, and Ethan. Sometime in the future he would like to be a jazz pianist. Patrick thinks writing about himself in the third person is kind of weird.



My Review


This is an epic story. A fantasy world with an unlikely hero. At the beginning of this book, Errol is a drunk man, who likes to take any job just to get money and drink again, you have pity for him. But theres something he is really strength about it. Honor. Since he accepts to deliver some letters to the priest of the village, Martin, hes journey beggins. 

Errol is a character who has nothing but yet, he manages to develop within the story goes and it does it quite well. Then hes a man with honor and responsible. 

This adventure is really exciting and enjoyable.

 A Cast of Stones has a unique fantasy world, is well written, describes perfectly the scenarios so you dont get lost in it. (Well, you do get lost in it, because you are intrigued by the story that you cant stop reading)
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves a great medieval fantasy story.

5 stars!
