C.B. Pratt is a multi-published author in both e-book and traditional. Eno the Thracian appeared in a dream after back to back viewings of Clash of the Titans, Farewell My Lovely, and Night at the Opera. The large dish of hummus consumed that evening probably contributed. There will be a total of five Eno the Thracian adventures, plus a couple of novellas.

After reading Hero For Hire by C.B. Pratt, I had to get this book, as well. Eno is the perfect hero. Confident in his ways, and duly able, all the while carrying himself with ease.
The first book in this series, Hero for Hire, was nicely paced and engrossing, with plenty of action and mythical creatures. I expected no less from The Stone Gods, and I was not disappointed.
The storyline in both books were well thought out, and told well, with nicely painted descriptions. The Stone Gods was equally engrossing as Eno sets out on an adventure of a more personal nature, but, as is often the case with most heroes, he is sidetracked by a much grander adventure which the author handled wonderfully.
I could easily see many plots arising for this character in future books, which I think the author would have little trouble concocting and weaving together. I have equal confidence that Eno would handle whatever she threw at him with his usual skill and aplomb.
I didn't consider these books a series, as each one is an adventure unto itself, and have nicely tied up endings, but The Stone Gods does leave the door open for the next book to pick up on Eno's original intentions in this book, a personal matter to be taken care of. I'm certain that this personal matter will lead him on his grandest- and possibly most dangerous, adventure yet.
I don't know if the author has plans to tell that story yet, I certainly hope so, because I think it will make a great one!
