Spirit and Stone. Song and Sky. Fate and Future all align.
On my seventeenth birthday, I finally heard Fate’s voice. He whispered to me again and again, insisting I find the Omen of Stones. Having never heard of such lore, I thought I could ignore his pleas. The Summer Solstice proved otherwise. Being surrounded by fellow witches worked my magic up into a powerful swell that crashed and churned within me. As the energy crackled through my veins, I shunned my royal duties to follow the call of my heart.
Venturing beyond the safety of the Kingdom’s borders, I felt Fate nudging me toward a destiny I was eager to claim. Confidence in my craft blinded me from the ominous clouds of danger that roiled on the horizon.
Captured by purists dead-set on purging the Kingdom of magic and witches, my salvation came in the form of a mysterious girl who wielded stones like daggers. Something about her called to me, whispering we were stronger together, strong enough to stand against the dark forces threatening to crush my kingdom. Trusting Fate could jeopardize my heritage and my throne, but defying him could cost Omen’s life.
I completely fell in love with The Omen of Stones. I really world and character building that Casey Bond put into this story, its so unique and different from anything Ive read. The creativity is mind blowing. I really didnt know what to expect from reading The Omen of Stones, especially since the main leads weren't Sable and Tauren, I loved them so much that I was afraid to read this one but at the same time wanted to know what was to come. Casey Bond did not dissapoint, River and Omen are phenomenal and the journey they go on, and all the twists and turns within this story have you at the edge of your seat, wondering whats to come at the turn of each page. Its just feaking epic, and there is nothing like it. I absolutely have loved everything I have read from this author and can't wait to see where her imagination takes us next.
Casey Bond lives in West Virginia with her husband and their two beautiful daughters. She likes goats and yoga, but hasn't tried goat yoga because the family goat is so big he might break her back. Seriously, he's the size of a pony. Her favorite books are the ones that contain magical worlds and flawed characters she would want to hang out with. Most days of the week, she writes young adult fantasy books, letting her imaginary friends spill onto the blank page.
