Coming Soon: Book Review 2

So I love to read and I love to review. What better way to read and review than by also helping out authors in return. After getting in contact with an author, I was given the chance to be able to read and review a novel called, Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms by Mark Whiteway.

Now there's no synopsis on BarnesandNoble.com (which. by the way, if you click the link, it'll take you to the book page.) And when the author talked about the book, he gave a descriptive and long summary to help us understand better. So all I will say is, it involves, a Prophet, much confusion about this Prophet from what I hear. Is he good or evil? And it involves a quest and many epic things.

It's pretty hard to explain, when you don't want to give away too much, but, this novel looks promising. And I will put up my review for it as soon as I am doing reading it, and sending the review to the author first. And then you guys have to check it out.

Actually just go and check it out because it's probably ultra epic.

So, until then, check it out, read it, love it, tell me what you guys thought.

Update: I have found a synopsis on amazon. I have no idea why I didn't look there in the first place.

Alli-Kar, a white-hole portal from another universe, rains meteoroids onto the surface of the planet Kelanni. But the so-called "lodestones" behave according to different physical laws, transforming Kelanni's society. With the aid of the fearsome Keltar in their flying cloaks, the Kelanni are being put to forced labor to mine the lodestones. Shann, an orphan with a fiery disposition, witnesses a battle between a Keltar and a stranger bearing a similar flying cloak. She tracks down the stranger, and learns of the technology behind the Keltars' power, joining him on a mission to free the slaves and cut off their supply of lodestones. Meanwhile Keris, a Keltar, is sent on a mission to track down the rebels. She is attacked by a flying creature and saved by the enigmatic Chandara. At their Great Tree, she learns that a mysterious "Prophet" is out to destroy the Kelanni people. Their only hope is a powerful instrument hidden in the distant past. Pursued by Keltar, the party will encounter bizarre creatures, ancient technologies and terrifying dangers. Finally, they must seek to cross a massive storm barrier in order to reach the other side of their world, where a world-shaking revelation awaits.
