Book review by Jeremy Poole
I’ve just finished the Crown of stones trilogy and think it thoroughly deserves a 5 star review.
The first two books were good, but the third really was an edge of the seat fantasy experience. The writer pull you in to the character of Ian Troy and keep deepening his negative almost black point of view. As I’ve said in previous reviews there were shades of ‘Thomas Covenant’ in Troy.
The Sheer depth of the fantasy and the land is enthralling and never failed to keep me awake into the small hours.
The only negative I’d give Schneider's work is the sex, not gratuitous at all, but too much and too long, I don’t want sex in my fantasy books, at least not in depth description, pages and pages of it.
That apart, highly recommended.
