Stones (One True Child #5)

Deep within the New Zealand bush, lies a plateau with a clearing, covered over by many years of fallen leaves, leaving it damp and dark. Hidden just beneath the surface are the STONES - green and still polished smooth - placed long ago by the Guardians. Still pulsating with power, they are about to bear witness to a great battle between light and darkness.

“…Your little family is going to be tested once more, and you cannot let it break.” She looked directly at Claire. “There is too much to lose if you do.”

Good verses evil apparently wraps itself around Claire Drummond and her family. Connected to the Scottish Coimheadair-(the Guardians) from the beginning of history, Claire’sTalent is healing although the whole family has some gift of foresight: something Claire keeps warning daughter Bree not to let anyone know of for her own safety.

I am a big fan of the One True Child Series by L.C. Conn, so I was really excited to get by hands on book 5, Stones. The teen fiction series is so engaging and exciting, with a unique take of the good s evil narrative, and in book 5 Conn has really pushed her imagination and creativity to the next level. We are back once again with her strong protagonist Claire as she struggles with the news that her beloved Uncle Geoff (the man that taught her to embrace her gifts) is seriously ill. But, she ha ...more

I have no idea what the book was about. Nothing was explained. How these books relate to the first one isn't clear at all except in a vague way. It is disappointing that the talents aren't fully explored or the history and meaning of them and the sentinels brought out. It's basicly a story about pretty average people love and family. And it seems you kill off the characters and relationships that are the most interesting. Leaving not much behind. What was the purpose behind the tasks. What we

‘I am so lucky to have had two fathers who have cared so much for me.’

New Zealand born Australian author L.C. Conn has discovered that cosmic glow that allows her reader to make sense of the order of the universe, all in the format of a coming of age story. L.C. is a mother who is battling breast cancer and has transformed her life situation into a significant epic - the One True Child Series - which proves to be not only a sensitive examination of the coming of age time of each of our lives, b

Conn tells a narrative of the battle of good versus evil in one of the most scintillating tales ever. The fact that she sets the mysterious place in the book in New Zealand and the highlands of Scotland gives the fictional story a real presence to which it is easy to relate. Conn constructs her characters carefully within a family setting to give that close, lifelike feeling to the characters in an enchanting story.

Conn’s writing is drawn from both the inspiration of a dream and her real-life ex

I read the second part of this book series last year and I fell in love with the character of Carling who has the gift of foresight that she uses to her advantage in a positive way. This book is the fifth part of this series which is called the One True Child and again I was satisfied with it by its last page on my kindle. Carling in this part is now Claire and she is married to a man who also has her talent by the name of Matt and together they have a daughter named Bree. This book features a l ...more

Stones (One True Child Series Book 5) by L.C. Conn
Starts out with Claire and she's married to Matt and they have a young daughter: Brianna.
Her uncle Geoff is very ill and it's amazing the daughter tells them they must go see him, for the last time.
The young daughter has powers she has no idea about yet-she can see into the future. Her uncle had raised Claire in Scotland as they pack up and get ready to go.
As time goes on others on the evil side kidnap some for leverage. Some are able to read the

With a flair of mystique and charm, L. C. Conn continues Claire Drummond’s tale of stones and danger. Stones (One True Child Series Book 5) picks up with Claire, Matt, and their daughter Bree experiencing the death of her Uncle Geoff. Then shortly after that, the death of Matt’s mum in Scotland. Traveling back to Scotland brings Claire a message from Breena, Matt’s deceased sister, and the realization of little Bree’s talents. Trials and testing is coming, this time Bree is the target and the wh ...more

L C Conn is proving something of a revelation in the Fantasy genre these days, and even though Stones isn’t my favorite book in the series it’s still one not to be missed. It would probably be described as Young Adult fiction, but there’s nothing childish about the characters, plot, or expansive universe they inhabit. Claire is a fantastic lead, introduced earlier in the series, but I’m pretty sure you could pick up and read from this book if you have missed out on the others. Having said that y ...more

Even though I’ve come to this series at book 5 I still picked up the gist of the back story easily enough and really enjoyed the book. Conn’s writing is tight and moves the plot along quickly while proving to be exciting and compelling.

The scene-setting of Scotland and New Zealand is stunning in it’s description in a way you can easily visualise each scene and feel immersed in the story. There are interesting concepts and a strong protagonist with Claire. I really enjoyed it.

Good Read

Well made characters, some action, mystery, magic and romance. Still a little disappointing since I thought the true one would be more but was a good story and ended like the others leaving room for more.
