Grey Stone by Jean Knight Pace
In the land of the great red sun, dogs sing, wolves kill, humans serve, and wolf-shifters rule with magic and menace. Pietre is a human boy who has spent the last thirteen years afraid of the sunset, the Blodguard, and the wolf-shifting masters who rule his world. Wittendon is a werewolf prince who has spent the last nineteen years afraid of his father, his inability to do magic, and the upcoming tournament he’s sure to lose. But when Pietre finds an orphaned pup in the woods and Wittendon is forced to arrest the boy’s father soon after, both of them begin to realize that keeping the rules might be just as terrifying as breaking them. Now serf and master must learn to cut through their own prejudices and work together in order to turn their world before it turns on them. Grey Stone is a story of dogs who talk, wolves who kill, and a stone that – for better or worse – can change all that.
My thoughts on Grey Stone
I wasn’t sure with this one at first. The beginning left me feeling slightly confused, because instead of introducing the world, Grey Stone jumps right into the storyline. Once it got going, and it didn’t take long, I was hooked. This is one of those books I just couldn’t put down. I had to know what Wittendon would choose to do, or if he would ever realize his magical capabilities, and whether he would continue to just live his life or do more. Pietre’s story was also fascinating. His character grows exponentially from his experiences throughout the Red Sun World.
If you’re looking for a good book to read and throw yourself into a world of fantasy, I highly recommend Grey Stone. Jean Knight Pace assures me she is writing more within this world, although they will be stand alone books. I can’t wait!
