Amazing story.
The world building in the story was amazing. The author has created a wonderful world and at no point do you feel that you do not understand this world of fantasy.
Yrund finds a rare gem as she is mining and her life as a slave, changes.
The complex world, the characters were superbly brought out in the story. Completely enjoyed it.

Wow! Very original, very good!

The beginning was a little slow but once this book took off I had a hard time thinking about anything else. Great characters and setting, appropriate for all ages. I read a lot so I really appreciate something completely different that is so well done.

I predict that E.A. Sandrose will be a Bestseller very quickly.
This a very good book. Slowly building up the characters and telling a very entertaining tale.
I can't wait to read the next book.

An extremely imaginative, unique world! In fact, this is probably one of the most unique worlds I've had the pleasure of reading about. The mixture of gems, different cultures, and little details about the memluks and Lumi were entirely enthralling--I'd like some alat, please :)

I liked the characters, especially how the Haya children's interactions with each other felt real. I loved the many different cultures, customs, landscapes, gems, etc., that were introduced in the book. It never once fel

I came across this book at the Sonoran desert museum in Arizona. It seems to be small press but deserves a little more love than it is getting. Its good young adult fun with a bit of a Phillip Pullman feel. I would love to read the next books in this series. I hope they are published soon

Yrund is taken from her home and forced into mining. The people who have taken her captive are looking to collect all stones. Especially the every stone. This stone is known to have the power to do everything. It will make the owner of the stone very powerful. Yrund does not believe in this stone. She thinks it's just a tall tale. All she wants to do is go home and be in the presence of her family again. She works hard hoping to eventually earn her freedom. Everything is going fine until somethi ...more
