Lots of Humor
In a nation where only the nobility are supposed to have special powers, Connor’s secret curse might hold the key to stopping a war and saving his village from destruction. His best friend Hamish has a habit of sucking on rocks that might just unlock an ancient power not seen in generations. Their friend Jean is the local healer. She has no magic, but she’s smarter than the boys combined. And Verena is one of the invaders, with a bag full of tricks that can stop entire armies.
Join Connor and his friends as they are swept up in an epic adventure, with a unique magic system based on rocks, and lots of humor.
When armies assemble around their remote village, Connor is caught in the middle. While his friends try to free the village under siege, Connor peels back layers of intrigue and half-truths to find secrets neither side wants him to know. Surrounded by deadly enemies that all claim to be his friends, Connor must choose a course with the lives of everyone he loves hanging in the balance.
His only hope is to gamble everything on a curse that could destroy them all unless his final choice is Set in Stone.
