The Stone’s Heart

Jessica Thorne

Something evil is gathering power in the kingdom. It knows the secrets in your heart, and nobody is safe…

Petra Kel – young and headstrong – has been named General of the Queen’s Guard. But while Petra’s head may be in rebuilding the war-torn kingdom alongside her childhood friend Queen Belengaria, she left her heart miles away in their homeland, the day she turned her back on the only man she ever loved and fled.

But then Petra’s past – in the form of Bel’s roguish brother Zander – comes crashing in, just as rumours of dark magic begin to swirl at court. Petra can’t afford to be distracted… but the unfinished business between herself and Zander is like a vice upon her heart.

When evil takes hold of the kingdom and threatens Bel, Petra is forced to make the impossible choice between love and loyalty. And will the insidious magic of Stone’s Heart reveal the heart-breaking reason why she left Zander behind all those years ago?

A gripping and magical read that will captivate you from the very first page. Perfect for fans of The Selection, Fourth Wing and Sarah J. Maas.

Really does pack a punchI loved every minute of it. The only negative emotion I felt was when it ended… filled with action, adventure, and romance and it will have you at the edge of your seat so many times. There were things I never saw coming and I held my breath on numerous occasions… I was deeply invested in all the characters, and I can’t wait to see what is going to happen next … This book has everything a fantasy reader will love… If I could give more than five stars I would. I absolutely loved it and will be waiting not so patiently for book 3.’ Amanda J Evans, 5 stars
