Editorial Reviews


Honestly, this is my favourite book. Best one I've read in mylife, alongside (and on a par with) Prince of Thorns.
Insanely brilliant. Fletcher did it again.
Black Stone Heart is Fletcher's best novel to date, and thatis really saying something coming from someone who can't stop talking aboutBeyond Redemption.
Readers will probably wonder about Fletcher's sanity beforeit's all over.
This is a riveting start to an excellent saga. The author hassurpassed himself again and we are all luckier for it.
This book is AMAZING and INTENSE and DARK and WEIRD and allthose delightful things that Fletcher is known for.
--Sarah Chorn, author of Seraphina's Lament
This might be the best Fletcher book I've read to date.That's not a light statement, considering his oeuvre: Beyond Redemption, Smokeand Stone, The Mirror's Truth, and on, but I tore through this in less thanfour days, and it left me wanting more. More, more, more now.
--Clayton Snyder, author of The Obsidian Psalm
Once again Michael Fletcher manages to spellbind you intothis grimdark spiral of madness, and yet it feels so very fluent and logical itmakes you take a double take at your own thoughts and emotions.
A dark tale full of unconventional ideas with that specialkind of madness that only Fletcher can provide. Bring on the sequel!
Black Stone Heart is, above all, addictive and compulsivelyreadable - it forced me to prolong my lunch as much as I dared because Icouldn't bear to stop reading it. If anything depended on me, I would forbidFletcher to work on anything but The Obsidian Path series. I need the sequel.
