The Historian chances upon Surac, a land where people’s destinies are defined by powerful pendants they have from birth, called Stones. Those whose Stones give them useful skills call themselves Creators, and isolate themselves from all others with a wall that splits the entire continent. When Aric, a Creator blacksmith, has a son born with a Stone that marks him for violence and destruction, they find themselves in danger from those they called their friends.
When the boy, Sadavir, is ultimately banished, he discovers secrets far darker than the villagers’ petty prejudices. On the far side of the wall, he learns the origin of the Stones’ magic and a war that dates back centuries. As he uncovers the true power locked in the Stones, he must find a way to unite ancient enemies in order to save his family. To stop a genocide, Sadavir must face his own destiny of violence.

I love books. I am inspired by the books I read. I realize that there are a lot of people out there who enjoy books for a variety of reasons: plots, characters, information, escapism, and so on. I love books for all these reasons. Beyond that, I just love books.
I love the smell of them, the earthy woodiness of the paper and binding glue. I enjoy the heft and the solidity of a hardback. These are things I’ve never felt from an electronic reader.
When I hold a book in my hands I feel the weight of it, I smell the ink and leave fingerprints on the cover. These minuscule experiences trigger echoes in my mind, lighting up synapses and calling up all the emotions and excitement of the many full lives I’ve lived.
