Thanks to T A Uner for giving me this book to review.

Along with his new allies, Lager, an exiled Starfighter from Earth, Marella, a mysterious stealer from Pazland and Matilda, his loyal dog. Fabian and the others must navigate the dangerous lawless domain of the Darklands and unknown dangers of the Hellion Doors, but will th

Please note: It is strongly recommended you read The Leopard Vanguard first, and The Leopard Stratagem second before reading Stone Ram.
A war is being waged, a precious artifact has been stolen, a young man feels the need to answer the call to arms, but Fabian isn’t a normal boy and must begin his journey with only his trusted sheep dog by his side. So begins another young adult adventure from T. A. Uner and the birth of the hero known as The Stone Ram. From a sightless shepherd to a magically enhanced warrior, Fabian has heart, determination and a strong sense of right and wrong. He has vowed to return the artifact to the peopl ...more

When I started reading this book, I was immediately captivated by the battle.
A little later, I thought the quest would be straight-forward, with the major rule being "don't die", and in a way it was, but I was quickly amazed at just how many brushes with death the characters had, how little time they had to regroup between battles and their anxiety-inducing encounters. I also liked how the characters were portrayed, especially the "Alien", Lager.
Generally, I think it's a great story, and I'm loo
Hmm. Not quite sure how I feel about this one. Kind of scratching my head with too with figuring it out. With reading the Leopard Stratagem already, it seems like Fabian should have thought a little bit more about what wish he asked to be granted.
With the Golden Mane stolen, a domino effect starts to happen with people losing faith in their King. The stock market crashes, people start to leave to move to greener pastures when the Blood Reeper’s army invades when demands aren’t met. In order to
Prior to reading “Stone Ram,” I was aware it was written as a YA which I’m fine with as I enjoy the YA genre. With that being said, that special “umph” was missing that I always feel while reading T.A. Uner’s writing. In my opinion “Stone Ram” is not as great of a read compared to the author’s other novels but still very much enjoyable.

This installment briefly mentions: Helen Keller, Pearl Harbor, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.

Characters are likeable. I found myself irritated every time Fabian had to e
I received a digital copy in exchange for an honest review from the author.
Stone Ram is a continuation of the Leopard King Saga and can be read in order or by itself.
This installment seemed less historical and more sci/fantasy with the reader base geared more YA than NA however I thought the characters still played out strong, the plot twists continue to carry weight through the story and TA prepared to keep his readers interest always introduces something fresh and new to keep fans drawn in.

Stone Ram is the last intermediary book of the Leopard King Saga. It provides background to one of the new characters of book #2. Although this books is somehow rated lower than the other two intermediary books (Kill Zombies and The Bloody Ripper) I think it is the one I liked the most. The story follows Fabian SilverSword, a 16 year old blind boy that goes on a quest to retrieve a sacred artifact. The journey is, as one can expect, filled with many obstacles, encounters, revelations and has ove ...more
This was the last of the intermediary stories for "The Leopard King" saga and probably the one that more or less was truly a standalone book of its kind. Not until towards the ending of the book does it really ever relate to the other books so you don't get as much a chance to figure out where this one may fit in with the other books.

This book was a little bit on the lengthy side and had almost the opposite problem as "Kill Zombies". In the latter there was too much story but not enough pages

I really think that this book would’ve been a lot better if it was a solid 500 paged novel because I felt like the story was way too rushed toward the end and some of the could’ve- been- fun parts are missing.
When Fabian wore his special armour and he could suddenly see again after 16 years of being blind and still wanted to continue the quest… well I found that very hard to believe. Honestly, if I were blind for my whole life and the fact of just wearing a suit can cure my blindness, then I don

I really wanted to love this book as much as I loved the other books in this series but I just couldn't. There were so many things that added up in this book that I just couldn't love it. I honestly just realized that this was a YA book when I flipped past the title page and on the next page it said a "young adult adventure". This book didn't feel like a young adult book. Although the main character was 16 he

Although I don't usually read YA stories, I read this to give an honest review for my friend Mr Uner.
As per all his stuff the story is well written and keeps moving along nicely. It is a simple story, sci-fi and fantasy reminiscent of the great John Carter novels, which I loved as a child.
It features the usual young hero and a grizzled mentor but with a few twists thrown in. A quest for a holy artefact and a kingdom to save! Magic and science overlap and the detail puts the reader on another wor

Fabian is blind, but he can see in many other ways. He sets out on an adventure to prove to everyone he isn't impaired but what he doesn't realize is he is proving to himself that he can do anything that he sets his mind to. He encounters a couple people to help him on his quest and they prove to be more like family and a boost to his pride. He learns to fall in love and what it's like to feel pain. T.A. Uner did an amazing job bringing out the fact that we all can concur our fears and disabilit ...more

T.A. Uner has been fascinated with the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre since 1978, when as a youngster, he first watched Superman on the big screen.

He wrote his first story in the 5th grade. After an 18 year hiatus, he resumed his writing odyssey in 2003 and hasn't looked back since.

Mr.Uner loves hearing from readers, and chances are you'll enjoy conversing with him. He's a capricorn, loves pizza, and is qu
