Wow, this was a roller coaster! Definitely a good end to this series - the story is quite unpredictable (which I like) and the characters and setting are all interesting. The characters especially are very well written; they develop in a good way throughout the series and also in this book. Also very glad to see many of my ships come true in the end!

Okay so I fell in love with this series a few months ago and I am really sad to see it come to an end, but I don't think there could have been a better way to tie up the series.This finale was filled with loss, intense action, betrayal, forgiveness, love, friendship and family bonds. It was definitely the edge of your seat read that had me flipping
I fell in love with Cornerstone and these characters a few short months ago, and hanging with Emariya and Torain has been nothing but a blast. Each book takes the reader on an epic adventure. Broken Stone is my favorite out of the series. I loved every single minute I spent reading it.
Emariya's journey has been nothing but ups and downs since we first met her. She is such a strong character, she face adversity head on. Even when she thinks all is lost she still continues to go on. I love that!

This is the third book in the ‘Souls of the Stones’ series, and kicks off where book 2 ‘Second Stone’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 and 2 ‘Cornerstone’, and ‘Second Stone’.**
Now that Emariya and Torian have bound the lines, it’s up to them to rescue Torian’s sister Terin, who has been kidnapped by Emariya’s brother Reeve.

*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 h

An absolutely magnificent conclusion to this series! Broken Stone was an epic read and a satisfying conclusion to one of my favorite series!

Everything was perfect in this book.

Emariya realized her full potential and became a formidable heroine. She was awesome, a truly wonderful character.

Torian was as sweet as ever and a strong leader to his people. He was a brilliant hero, a perfect match to Emariya.

The romance was wonderful. These two were so sweet together. And talk about a power couple! You

Okay so first I want to say that I recieved the Omnibus edition from Netgalley but reviewed them as seperate books in order to better rate them individually. However you really can not do this. They flow so well into one another & although each book can be a bit lengthy they are very well written & keep the blood flowing so to speak throughout. I was really impressed and am really happy I was given the chance to read them all. I kind of wish the in between/additional books had been ...more

I was a bit sad when this trilogy ended, which I read in its recently published Souls of the Stones Omnibus form. I was fully intrigued and invested in the lives of Emariya and Torian, along with their faithful and loyal friends.

Right from the start, I was launched into a plot filled with good pacing, quick action and political intrigue. The bad guys get what they deserve (although it would have been cool if those scenes were drawn out a little more); and the go

With Broken Stone, a good portion of this book is each character getting to know themselves, both their best pats and their darkest parts. Each character's loyalties and commitments are tested, and it's interesting to see how it all falls out. There were definitely a few surprises in here for me as well, which was great. Also a lot of exploration of their various powers, which I always enjoy when I'm reading fantasy.

A good ending to a good series; pretty much all questions were answered, though

Finally, the war. That is the kind of action I have been waiting for. Only it wasn’t as fantastic as I was hoping. Everything was fast and it ended before you knew it. Where is the action packed fighting and adventure? If there is a war then there should be a big drawn out war. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good book and a good series but it’s not the greatest. Everyone lives happily ever after and we all are happy with the ending, just not how it got there. I am a young adult author and reader but ...more

This book was an amazing conclusion to the souls of stones series!
If you were captivated by Riya and Torian's love in the previous books, you will not be let down in this book! A really great love story between the two of them that just gets better and better as you read.
Plus, you get an ending to all of the other characters as well including what happens to Terin and Riya's evil brother.
In all seriousness, this series is as good a read as The Hunger Games and other popular YA series. I could

This was a great read. Ms. Walker writes a fantastic YA series. I thought the books only got better and better. The heroine, Emariya, is tied to her soul mate, Torian and they face the future together. This book simply continued from the second book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The plot only got better as the series went on. This series was my first read for Ms. Walker, but it definitely won’t be my last.

Tween read. Nothing offensive. Lots of time spent blushing over steamy kisses, no cursing. Lots of angst and betrayal. Lots of matchy matchy insta love. The kind of book u would consider and epic romance if u were 12. It has its place, and isn't bad at what it does. Just don't expect something else going into it.

A brilliant conclusion to a great series, I was hooked on this book from the beginning, though I think this was down to the cliff-hanger at the end of the second book.

I loved the romance between Torian and Emariya, it felt so much stronger than the previous two books and made the characters more real to me this time. The plot was brilliant, I adored it! Amazing book.

I loved this Cornerstone Series. The books were great. The characters are lovable and caring. The setting is fascinating and the plot is enticing. Broken Stone had plenty of action and a perfect balance between good and evil, humor and severity, happiness and sorrow, romance and despising, and so much more. Broken Stone is a fitting conclusion for this awesome series. Well done Kelly Walker!

the storyline was interesting, but the heroine was such a mess. One minute she was trying to be strong and independent (and kind of rude & obnoxious), then the next she is a fainting, whining spoiled little girl who can't make a decision.
I won't be going on with this trilogy...

I really enjoyed this trilogy. They were fast-paced, and I never really felt like I was wasting time reading them. I'm excited for the next books, and would really like to have a sequel more focused on the children. But I still loved the series. A++!

3.5 stars. This was a great way to finish the tale. More emotionally invested, the heart strings pulled for the characters in Broken Stone more so than the first 2 books. A story of treachery, it ended in the power of forgiveness and love.
