Riddle in Stone by Robert Evert
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If your looking for a fantasy genre that smells old school, this is the book for you.
If you want an old fashion hero kind of not good looking but with a beautiful interior, with good values and a character that is solid and heart warming then Edmund is your man.
This book reminded me of Lord of the Rings and all that beautiful world populated with extraordinary creatures that generally live only in our minds.
Tired of being ridicule and and a nobody, only to be laughed at, Edmund sets out on the journey of his life to battle harm and trying to save the world in the process.
At first I felt so sorry for him, for not being able to battle through his fears and for being mistreated by all the villagers but then something sparkled inside, and the journey to greatness began.
I think the author was able to transmit to us all those feelings and to make us glue to the pages to see what came next.
Also this book makes us realize that all that glitters is not gold, all those pretty tales that you believe in are not so pretty after all.
If your looking for a roller coaster ride with magic, trolls, goblins, and more, then this is the book for you.
There comes another book after so where will it leads us ... to a good place I'm shure.
