Stone of Asylum is part 1 of Hilarey Johnson's, author of Soveriegn Ground, new Fantasy series, Dance of the Crane. It's the story of fourteen year old Endora (This name totally gives me Bewitched vibes) whom after experiencing an epilepctic seizure is pulled from her father and sent to an underground insane asylum. She soon enough discovers the powerful garnet stone. And Endora must discover her own power to help bring together the Watchers to protect the garnet stone from the wrong hands.

This is a good adventure story. Ms. Johnson is truly a good storyteller. I like the insights into the Old West, I like the shape-shifting, and am tickled that they got combined so well.

I enjoyed the story of Yi Bae and his quest for his sister. Not being familiar with some of the terms in the story, the supernatural properties, etc. made reading seem a little slow at first and it took time as I wove myself into the story line. I did enjoy the descriptive fighting scenes and how I could easily envision the battles. I identified with Eldora's story much faster and found myself anxiously awaiting to see when the two stories would intersect. Knowing that this is to be trilogy made ...more
