Dec 12, 2020 rated it really liked it
If you have read any of my reviews, you will know that unpredictability is one of my big things for books, especially if they're in the fantasy genre. Hard as Stone is based on a world with automatons, so it definitely met this criteria. The world building involved was impressive and original, combining fantasy with sci-fi. Kind of like a combination of the different planets in Star Wars minus aliens and space? It also reminded me of Fawkes, minus the history. There really is no good comparison ...more

I might be a little biased, but I love this book! Raven reminds me of me in ways that other characters don't. She shared a few of my lesser-liked traits, which took me a while to learn how to put into a character. ...more

I would categorize this as an epic journey (think a bit like the journey of Fellowship of the Ring). It tried hard to be a steampunk, so there are odd bits of machinery cropping up all over the place, along with the stereotypical airships. The first half of the book is medieval set as it visits inns along the countryside, and then at the halfway mark it suddenly turns into a Victorian/Edwardian period piece with obsessing over dresses, being waited on by servants, attending balls, and drinking s ...more

The 100 years war has left Rhynwier devastated, and the Gray Elite dominate with their technology. Raven longs for adventure and the chance to see the world beyond her home, but roaming automatons make travel beyond the borders of her village dangerous and practically impossible. When a thief sneaks past her during her watch and steals something valuable, she is tasked to retrieve the stolen item. Her excitement at the prospect of adventure is dampened when she learns that she will be accompanie ...more
