This is an excellent adventure. I got to read an advance review copy, and I loved it. There's so much to enjoy here, it's hard to know where to start. The world of Muralia is vast and richly conceived. Its different races of people are culturally distinct and wary of each other, and they struggle to come together when faced with a common foe, adding a layer to the challenge faced by the main characters who are charged with uniting the various peoples and saving this world from impending doom.

I received a review copy of the e-book from the publisher.

The Staff of Fire and Bone is a thrilling tale of a misfit with a destiny to save the world of Muralia—and the power to destroy it. Cedron is the son and presumptive heir to the Regent of Dulnat, but he is hated for his mixed parentage in a world where the four peoples prize racial purity. It doesn't help that he has recently manifested uncanny and barely controlled magical power. When he is blamed for a disaster during a festival, Cedron

There are so many books on my 2018 to-be-read list on Goodreads and I'm proud to say that all of those books are written by female authors. My goal is to read at least one book from that list a week and last week, I completed Mikko Azul's The Staff of Fire and Bone. I wanted to post my review immediately after completing it, but since today (January 30th) is the book's publishing birthday, I decided to wait and offer my review as a book birthday gift.

A truly stunning coming of age fantasy tale – Staff of Fire and Bone is an epic account of friendship filled with imaginative characters and creatures. Azul’s amazing gift for description immerses us immediately in an intricately woven story where the corruption of power has bred sinister plots leading to prejudice and promises of exploitation. As Cedron’s story beautifully unfolds, we ache with his pain and hopelessness as he struggles to discover who he truly is and what is expected of him. In ...more

First: this is not a standalone, as I thought when I first read it. Phew!

Azul has crafted a beautiful, intricate world with various races, cultures, and a beautiful magic system and religion. This tale is exciting, bringing new twists and turns as the story unfolds.

The characters have complex motivations, the action was thrilling, and the soft, tender, and at times devastating moments brought me to my knees.

The narrative easily switches between characters, beginning plots in multiple parts of th

Muralia is a place of mystery and wonder but the people who once untied to defeat the great evil threatening the world have become divided, fractured into different races until they are virtual cut off from one another. Enter Cedron, the mixed-race heir apparent to the Regent of Dulnat. Considered by some to be a demon because of his mother, Cedron's blossoming magical powers only serve to fan the flames of fear towards him. Meanwhile, his half-brother, beloved of the people, may or may not be a ...more
