Earia, queen of the elves, has long fought against an enemy she believed she created: a man, Niren, who she raised as her son, over four hundred years ago and he will see every man, elf, and dwarf killed unless they bend a knee to him. The dragons already have, willing or not, and Earia is forced to fight them as well as Niren’s soldiers.

            Fillip is a seventeen year old, raised in the woods and seashores of the small country of Niss, and he has managed to find the one thing which can give the elves hope against Niren and his dragons.

            Pursued by assassins, Earia is desperate for Fillip’s help and he is aching for adventure, even danger. Fillip’s younger brother is not so inclined, but what is a brother for, if not to help chase monsters and throw down kings?

            Earia’s age old companions are quick to accept the youngsters and teach them a thing or two. Fillip soon discovers that he is not the farmer he thought, but a bold adventurer, willing to take mighty risks to see the world and to fight for his new friends.

The Stones of Caron is a delightful read featuring elves, dwarves, dragons, and basically every fantasy creature you can think of. The book focuses on Earia, the queen of elves, who fights against an enemy she believes she created, and Fillip, a former boy who holds the one thing that can save the elves from their enemy. It packs a lot of content, and the plot is fast-paced and entertaining from the start.

Earia was my favorite character. She was fiesty, stubborn when needed, intelligent, and not afraid to do what she had to do. Her personality changed and developed throughout the book and by the end, she was a lot stronger than she’d been at the start, but still equally engaging.

The author masterfully combines several elements like elves, dwarves, prophecies, magic, adventure, and crafts a tale that kept me on the edge of my seat. If you enjoy fantasy, you have to give this book a try.
