A Battle of Blood and Stone has magic, murky alliances, family, love, hope, and a surprising betrayal, all of which make it such an enchanting read. I'm in love with the epic romance that is steadily building between Carrick and Finley. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a hopeless romantic or if I just can't get enough of the demigod. With one powerful, intense, unreal mindboggling cliffhanger, I'm left on edge until I can get The Rise of Fortune and Fury in my

A Battle of Blood and Stone is the fourth book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil tetralogy, it also gives the reader a better understanding of the epic love story of Finley and Carrick that has lasted throughout time.

It's both beautiful and tragic.

Their souls will always recognize one another, but fate (or Rune) is jealous, hateful, and vindictive and will stop at nothing to punish Carrick for the rest of his life for the one transgression he did against
Hold on to your reading glasses and get ready for an amazing ride where you won't see what's coming and you can't trust anyone!

It’s all hands on deck in A Battle of Blood and Stone because Kymaris wants hell on Earth and Finley knows she’s the only one who can stop her. To do so, she needs to learn how to tap into her angelic powers, find her twin sister who’s been raised in the underworld and in general get all the help she can.

This series gets better and better with each book.

My love for Carrick has grown exponentially to the point where I just end up smiling when I think of this character. Carrick is without a doubt hot but in this book, he shows his sweeter side especially towards Finley and honestly, I just fall harder in love with this cautious, wise, powerful being with each chapter.

Finley, this stubborn yet feisty woman is amazing as ever- brave, badass extraordinaire, smart, tough, funny and beautiful.

3 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Please take in mind it’s my opinion, and everyone is allowed to have one.

A Battle Of Blood And Stone is the fourth book in the Chronicles Of The Stone Veil serie, where we are still following Finley and Carrick in their journey.

I was actually struggling to get through this, I wasn’t really feeling it. The romance was good, but I felt like I was missing more drama/ action.

The way Finley just developed her magic was so great, absolutely loved to see that. I like her character. Mad

Trying to do an independent review of what amounts to only one-fifth of a saga is difficult, as each successive book just adds to the whole of this series. With every installment, this story gets better and better. The more we know about each of the characters, the more fascinating and complex they become, and I have a hard time viewing any of the characters in the same way I did when I first met them. There is so much more to each of them than it originally appeared, and they each add such dept ...more

Wowza, just when I thought this crazy story couldn’t take more turns, guess what happened? Yep, more craziness and I am fully on board!

Finley and Carrick and the crew are getting closer to solving the prophecy riddle and life is becoming more and more dangerous for everyone involved. But none more than Finley! She’s the start and the end and there’s nothing that Kymaris won’t do to stop Finley from truly saving the world—even using those that are considered “friends” but are really her minions.

Be prepared to hit the ground running as this 4th installment in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series will keep you on your toes. It is full steam ahead as Finley must learn to harness her powers if she has any hope of defeating Kymaris. A Battle of Blood and Stone is another suspenseful and fantastical read by this author. There is never a dull moment as the story moves at a relatively fast pace and is full of intrigue, action, adventure, and steam. The author continues to masterfully weave ...more

Well Sawyer Bennett didn’t waste any time, she just thrusted your into a world of chaos! The Battle Of Blood and Stone was action pact! Had me on the edge of my seat! High intensity! Not only was my anxiety level up but my emotions were all over the place! Overwhelming sadness and nervousness! Such an exciting and amazing story!

4.5 stars— A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE is the fourth instalment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary adult CHRONICLES OF THE STONE VEIL paranormal/urban fantasy series focusing on twenty-eight year old Finley Porter, and Carrick Byrne. A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events and cliff hanger of book three THE EVOLUTION OF FAE AND GODS.

SOME BACKGROUND: All of her life Finley Porter has been treated for hallucinations but days before

WOW! That is all I can say about the ending. Battle lines have been drawn, the most unlikely of alliances are made, the betrayals are staggering, and there is still so much more to come. I cannot wait for The Rise of Fortune and Fury to be released in May!

This book picks up right where  The Evolution of Fae and Gods left off so please make sure you are reading this series in the order it has been released. There is soooooo much going on in this installment of the series some of it will shock yo

The Battle of Blood and Stone packs battles, loss, great love, magic, monsters, and more all into this final book that leads up to the final doomsday battle where the end of the world battle rests upon Finley's shoulders. Can a mere mortal win against the queen of the underworld? These are her last moments to prepare will there ever be enough time?

Working with her nemesis, the Scooby Gang (her mortal friends), her immortal friends, and the love of her life-Carrick, Finley is running out of time
Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
Alright now..... I feel like every book has been leading us forward to a huge battle. We learn a little more and uncover more secrets with each book. This book is the next to last and boy does the author throw the punches with this one!

You do need to read these books in order so if you haven't read 1-3...STOP....go back to book 1 and start there.

Finley and Carrick continue to search for clues about the fated end of the world. They pull together their rag tag army of immortals and mortal friend

We are getting so close to the final book and you don’t want to miss this one. Lines are being drawn and betrayals are going deep. There is action with underlying romance and I love the balance the author was able to take. And the ending! If you’re reading this book you know that Sawyer Bennett does not kid around with her endings to get people to come back for more. You don’t want to miss this book before the epic showdown.

*** ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. ***

Cliffhangers usually irritates but I don’t know why I don’t mind it at all with this series.
Can I say that I am excited about them? Damn right!!!

I couldn’t put it down. Finley, Carrick and their friends were more united than ever, teamed up to help Finley with this prophecy.
Danger and chaos are coming their way and they definitely can feel it.

This fourth installment kept me on my toes, this combination of action, suspense and romance

Review by Trinette Dungee

Initially thought to be myth, the Blood Stone is very much real. The mission now? Find the Blood Stone.

Book four hits the ground running and doesn’t stop until the end, and even then, leaves us wanting more. It’s been two weeks since the God Rune, snatched Carrick away from Finley. Learning that she is Carrick’s reincarnated love who is continuously snatched from his lifetime after time over centuries due to a curse Rune placed upon him has her reeling, and there was no

A Battle of Blood and Stone is the 4rth book in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series by Sawyer Bennett. There is a fifth and final book coming which will end Finley’s story. The books must be read in order.

More than ever, I felt like the series should have been shorter. There were things happening to our characters and yet I was feeling like the story was progressing very slowly. I found myself thinking that the book was dragging and when I went back to reading, a lot of stuff were going on a

We have more from the Gods, the Demi-Gods, the Dark Fae, the Light Fae, the demons, the (dare I say it), monsters! Finley is really being tested, her limits have been pushed, she wants to end this prophecy, but is she ready for the confrontation? We know it’s going to happen, and Carrick has a few aces up his sleeve to help her. She won’t like it, but what other alternative doe ...more

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

We begin where book #3 left off. You for sure will want to read these books in order, otherwise they won’t make sense.

Kymaris is still hunting for the stone and still as terrible as ever. You get to see a little more of her in this story, but she’s still very much a mystery. And, while you see more of what is driving her, we still

A Battle of Blood and Stone is Book 4 in the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and must be read in order. Yup..this one ends in a cliffy!

This book is all about Finley learning more about her powers and getting a deeper, stronger connection with Carrick. We also get a few more bits and pieces of the enigmatic Carrick's past. But the one twist that just screwed with my brain (and my heart) happens at the end! Gah!

I'll admit, this one wasn't my favorite so far because I felt like a lot of the st

A Battle of Blood and Stone is the fourth book in this amazing series and is truly spectacular in its concepts which initially I found quite complex, but the more I read the more enthralled I am with this world and also it’s characters❣️

This story morphed into something I wasn’t expecting but I do have to say that there have been some unexpected twists along the way, and finally some answers are headed our way in this one🤩 I’m keen to see how this Battle ends and who

More twists, more turns, more’s so freaking good! I guessed a twist or two, but was blindsided completely by another. I just love the Scooby group even more, and I tolerated Deandra in this one. If you haven’t started the series yet, what are you waiting for?

In the latest installment of Chronicles of the Stone Veil we continue in watching Finley grow. Finley has found herself keeping her head above water as she hoans her skills and tries to figure out how to free her sister. This book has everything you could hope for. We still get the suspense, we get the comedic relief at times, and we get to see Finley and Carrick together!!! There are questions that still need answered along with twists and turns that will leave you begging for more.

This is book 4 in the series and cannot be read on a S/A basis. To enjoy and follow this book, you will need to read books 1-3 in order.

Once again this book picks straight up from where the last book finished and I was sucked right back into this story. I really have enjoyed these books and this was another great read. I love the connection and relationship between Carrick and Finley who are main H/h but more than this I love how the supporting characters are just as richly developed and I am as

This series is just utter perfection. I never thought I'd get hooked so much. That betrayal came out of nowhere to be honest. I doubted everyone except that one. This book is action packed and filled with tragic back stories. It was too short for my liking. Can't wait for the next book. 🖤

Freakin' eeeekkkkk!! This penultimate novel in the series is really whipping things up with some stunning revelations.

"It's her burden alone to take Kymaris down. I hope she's ready."

I feel so invested in this story with its various possibilities of how things will finish. I have total faith that good will triumph over evil, but how we get there will no doubt be exciting and enthralling. But the pressure on Finley. Wowzers! However, it's heartening to see her progress and ease with her abilitie

I KNEW IT!!! And I was still excited with the twists and surprises. This is still a very tragic story, sad and unfair. But I'm glad the Scooby gang have a more concrete plan. That they are back together and in battle. You will be feeling prouder of all the growing Finley has done. And OMG Carrick is just amazing. The love pours out of him. He is definitely not just husband material but soul mate material. Can't wait to read what happens next. ...more
