Action and adventure are definitely contained in this book. Each character has their own special appeal. Daniel Kuhnley has an enormous imagination which he used generously to keep his readers on the edge of their seats while reading this book.

Intriguing Dark Fantasy

Compelling characters, creative world-building, and a fast-paced story make this a great read! If you enjoy Dark Fantasy, you will love this story!

It was an interesting book for a dark fantasy book.

This is NOT your typical fantasy book where people in the realms are living in dark times and a protagonist rises in its midst to conquer the evil.

This one involves journey into yourself,where Daniel and others must face their inner darkness, whether it is Fear, Anger, Hopelessness, Shame, etc. The author masterfully brings the emotions to life as they face trials.

Daniel wants to save his family but also needs to save the world through his dec

I won this book through the Goodreads contests but am under no obligation to review it; but I have to say I was truly enthralled by this book! I read it in less than 24 hrs. It was so good! Daniel Kuhnley can flat out write well. His characters were absolutely fantastic and the descriptions are forever rooted in my brain! I cannot say enough good things about this book and can not wait to read the next one in The Dark Heart Chronicles. Nardus, Alderan, Aria and Rayah’s adventures have me so wrap ...more

A dark, vivid journey begins…

Wow, The Dragon’s Stone takes the reader to some dark places in this epic fantasy adventure!

This book had a little of everything from spiders to gnolls to demons to a powerful dragon. If you like tales of where ordinary folks are forced to embark on a dangerous quest, then this book is for you.

Audiobook review: Well written dark fantasy story. It’s creepy, it’s got mayhem and many fantasy essentials. From the opening scene I was hooked! The author’s writing style reminds me a lot of Joe Ambercrombie, which is awesome! The narrator did a fantastic job! I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fabulous story. Another fantastic from this author for me. Nardus only wants his family back. He’s willing to do almost anything. Don’t miss out.

Dragon's Stone (formerly Dark Lament) is a dark fantasy in which we follow two seemingly disconnected plotlines. Nardus, the lone survivor of an ambush, strikes a demonic deal to retrieve a magical stone from an underworld dungeon in return for a promise to bring his family back to life. His trials in the formerly unconquered Temple of the Dead dungeon are complex and action-packed. Upon the surface, twins Alderan and Aria reach their sweet sixteenth, not knowing it is a magical trigger to an an ...more
