BOOK REVIEW...Broken Stone (Souls of the Stones, #3) by Kelly Walker

UNABLE TO AVOID HER DESTINY ANY LONGER, Emariya has become the leader her mother always envisioned. Before she can focus on embracing her gifts to unify her three lands, she must first stop her own land from dissolving into civil war. Spurred by her brother’s devious policies and thirst for power, the people of the Uplands have surged into revolt. If Emariya cannot convince her own people to stand down and follow her, she will never convince her uncle she can lead all three lands. And he’s only given her half a year to do it.

AS SHE TRIES TO WIN HER OWN PEOPLE'S HEARTS, the love of her life, Torian Ahlen begins to lose his mind. While Torian is driven into a dark depression by his visions of Terin, Emariya realizes the only way to bring him back from the brink is to confront her brother once and for all and rescue Torian's sister. Unfortunately, because of the pull of the stones, his sister isn’t sure she wants to be rescued.

IF EMARIYA IS TO HAVE ANY CHANCE AT SAVING TORIAN'S MIND and his sister’s virtue, she will have to go directly to the source, those that bestowed the gifts (or curse) in the first place. But will whoever is waiting at The Cradle Of The Three be willing to help her? Her only chance to get Terin away from Reeve will be to nullify the pull of the Stones, accepting whatever changes that may mean for her and Torian.

*Ooh! Pretty cover as usual!* :D

Wow.  What an amazing conclusion!!

I got introduced to the "Souls of Stones" series after the second book was released and became an instant fan.  I was a bit skeptical on whether "Broken Stone" would meet up to standards and expectations BUT THANKFULLY Kelly Walker delivered!!

The plot, the pacing, and characters were great!

Emariya was definitely one of the better heroine's that I've read in young adult reads.  She is not whiny and annoying and takes what's given to her straight on.  I absolutely loved her selflessness and strong characterization.

As for Torian, well, he's Torian so I adored him as well.  Whenever he would enter a scene I would feel a 'sprinkle of sunshine' come into the story as he always made me giddy with happiness.  I thought he was a loveable but admirable character as well as leader to his people.


Over all, I really enjoyed everything in "Broken Stone".  Everything was absolutely wonderful.  Emariya and Torian will go down as one of my favorite couples as they are such a solid team and were always so mature and level headed throughout the ENTIRE book series.

Such a shame it's all over. :(

*Review copy provided by Kelly Walker for an honest review.  Thank you so much!  I look forward to "No One's Angel" and any other future works!!* 

My Rating:

-Overall : 8.5
-Plot : 8.5
-Writing : 8.5
-Characters : 8.5
-Cover : 8.5
