BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - Stones and Finger Bones by Jessica Minyard

Book & Author details:

Stones and Finger Bones by Jessica Minyard
(The Black Towers #1)
Publication date: February 10th 2015
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult


Aurelia Barone, Jewel of Starry Stone, harbors no illusions about the purpose of her life as heir to the throne. But after two failed betrothals, she starts to feel like nothing more than a pawn being moved aimlessly about a game board.
Until the night she loses everything.

Kidnapped by a wise-cracking mercenary with more than one identity, Aurelia embarks on a mission across land and sea to avenge her father’s death.

But an evil is rising from the ashes of memory. Insidious magic is stirring. The dregs of a once-powerful nation are thirsty for blood and revenge.

They seek to harness Aurelia. To tempt her. To manipulate her.

And if necessary, to destroy her.

4 out of 5 (very good)

I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review.

Stones and Finger Bones is a book of magic, deception, treachery and confusion. Aurelia is a princess, also known as a pawn, in the game that her father is playing. However, unknown to her father, someone else wants to play and isn't afraid of a small matter of murder getting in their way. Follow this with a whirlwind kidnapping, new people, who to trust, who not to, and you get a book that is guaranteed to keep you turning the pages as quickly as you can read them.

This is a fast-paced, well-written book with a well-thought out plot with no holes. Expect the unexpected because that's what you'll get. The characters are devious and/or charming and you will either love or loathe them.

Definitely recommended for all fans of Fantasy.

Jessica wrote and illustrated her first story in the fourth grade. “The Dragon of Grindley Grun” was about an evil wizard, a princess, and a dragon who was actually a prince. She likes to think her writing has evolved since that very first story, even though she still writes about magic and evil wizards...sometimes.

She likes to sing loudly and dance on occasion without being particularly talented at either. Her interests include reading, writing, procrastinating, animal advocacy, musicals, accessories, memes, Harry Potter, and sweet tea.

Jessica lives in Kentucky with a spoiled pitbull.
