Review: Stone Song
Stone Song by D.L. McDermott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This series is rapidly becoming my new favorite set of books. They create such an interesting and different world that has a story that has sucked me in completely. This installment with Elada and Sorcha is my favorite thus far, but I still think you should start with book 1 to get the full effect.
Sorcha is a woman with unique talent who was raised in a world where the Fae exist and should be feared. She knows she was gifted with the ability to fight them, but chooses to avoid them at all costs. Elada is a warrior who is a bit adrift after the end of his romantic relationship and the changes in his platonic one. They are forced to work together to unite against a common enemy, the Prince. This story dives right into the action and sex and is just filled to the brim with paranormal romance.
Elada was a bit of a mystery through the previous books and that made me want to read this one even more. He’s an unstoppable warrior, loyal beyond measure, and I couldn’t wait to see how he’d try to win the heart of the very stubborn druid. They were great to watch and their romance is definitely my favorite of the series. As usual, the female characters are tough and fun to watch grow into their powers. This pairing isn’t anything like Beth and Conn, or Helene and Miach, and I found that a bit refreshing. Out of all three couples, this one seemed the most “normal,” if such a thing can be said for these fae romances.
If you’re looking for a set of books that will hook you from the first, you really should check out this series. They involve a mythos that most paranormal romance readers are familiar with, but there’s so much more to these books than others out there. The stories are wonderfully written and certainly don’t follow any sort of formula (like most PNR out there). Each book is unique but is definitely building to something bigger. I can’t say enough good things about these books!
