About this ebook

Another day, another step closer to Hell on Earth being unleashed.

With every piece that falls into place for the queen of the Underworld, Kymaris gains strength and power that will make it more difficult to defeat her when the time comes. It feels as if we’re in a desperate race to get just one step ahead of her, but my demise feels closer than it ever has before with still so much to do.

The first order of business is to unlock the angelic powers with which I was gifted at birth, and Carrick insists on getting help from my archnemesis to do so. Yes, I have to save the world, but my priority has now become rescuing my sister from the Underworld. While there are many questions still to be answered about my long-lost twin, I know I will not win this battle without her by my side.

In the midst of all the doom and gloom, Carrick has become my beacon of shining light. Our connection unimaginable, my heart recognizes his as the other half of its whole. Inexplicable and deeper than one could ever imagine, the love I hold for him is forged by destiny, however ill-fated it may turn out to be.

And those are the feelings I must hold close…to keep me going. Because a painful lesson is on the horizon—betrayal never comes from your enemies.

A Battle of Blood and Stone is book four of the Chronicles of the Stone Veil series and is best enjoyed if read in series order.

This book picks up where the last book left off and you do need to read these in order. With Carrick gone, the group is continuing to look for The Blood Stone and Finley is continuing to realize her full magical powers. We find out what Rune has been doing with Carrick and it ends with the God Onyx showing up. Carrick also finds out that Finley alone has to defeat Kymaris. The group is also continuing to get more information from Boral and Finley doesn't like what she is hearing and decides to tell him everything against everyone's wishes. Just as Finley starts talking Carrick returns! Finley and Carrick discuss more of their background and he takes her to The Hall of Histories where she can witness all of her history over the years. While they are there, they get a lead on The Blood Stone.....they know who knows where it is and enlists their help in getting it. The group is able to capture The Blood Stone, but not without losses. Now it has become critical that The Blood Stone is kept from Kymaris. As Finley continues to try and unlock her magical powers, she finds help from an unlikely source but it actually works. Just when it looks like their plan is starting to fall into place, they find out that Kymaris knows more than they thought and they quickly change their plans. Finley and Zaid head to Faere to hide with The Blood Stone but are quickly greeted by an unexpected guest. The next thing Finley knows is that she is being swept away to the least likely place she ever expected to be not knowing what will happen next! Yep, another cliffhanger! I am loving this story! I find myself rooting for all of these characters and I cannot wait to see how this series ends. I think I am in love with Carrick! The love he has for Finley is so pure and perfect and I can't wait to see if they get their happy ending.

This book will is full of surprises. People whom you shouldn't trust you do. People you should trust you shouldn't. Betrayal is at every turn. You think you have the characters figured out. Who is the bad guy. Who will screw Finely over. While reading your yelling at her not to believe so and so and not to fall for what ever they say. Because as the reader you "know" what is going on. But you have no idea. No. We we're pawns like Carrick is to the Gods. We thought we knew who to hate and who to cheer for only for that to be turned upside down. As a reader Sawyer makes you feel the real emotions of loss, sadness, and betrayal of the characters of the book. She is a great author and A Battle is another must read.

4.5 stars— A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE is the fourth instalment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary adult CHRONICLES OF THE STONE VEIL paranormal/urban fantasy series focusing on twenty-eight year old Finley Porter, and Carrick Byrne. A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events and cliff hanger of book three THE EVOLUTION OF FAE AND GODS. SOME BACKGROUND: All of her life Finley Porter has been treated for hallucinations but days before her twenty-eighth birthday Finley is pulled into a world of the Light and Dark Fae by a man who stirs something deep within our story line heroine. An end of the world prophecy declares our heroine the savior, and in this Finley struggles with her fated destiny. As the gods watch the prophecy play out, some take it upon themselves to interfere where they do not belong. Told from first person perspective (Finley) and third person (Carrick) A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE picks up immediately after the events and cliff hanger of book three wherein Carrick remains missing, and Finley continues to prepare for her role and fated destiny. Struggling to remain under the protection of Demi-gods and daemons, Finley is desperate to locate the the ‘Blood Stone’ purported to give the user immortal powers but a desperation brought about in an effort to keep the stone out of the hands of the Dark Fae. As Finley and Carrick, Carrick’s brothers Maddox and Lucien, and daemons Boral and Zaid head to a magical island to retrieve the missing stone, lives are lost, and our intrepid ‘Scooby gang’ is no further ahead but falling farther behind. Like the previous instalments, A BATTLE OF BLOOD AND STONE is a complex, detailed and riveting entry in Sawyer Bennett’s Chronicles of the Stone Veil. As the prophecy begins to take shape, Finley is desperate to reach into the Underworld, in an effort to make contact with someone from her past. Sawyer Bennett pulls the reader into an exciting and wonderful story line of revelations, betrayal and secrets, power and control that ends on a cliff hanger-you have been warned.
