For many years I've been writing for my own enjoyment, but over the years, so many people have told me that I should publish all my stories, that I've finally decided that's exactly what I would do. Visit my website to see the ones I currently have in the works, and my facebook page to follow along as I post commentaries every few days on what my characters are up to on any given day. It's the ultimate sneak peek!

- The Stone Gods
on Nov. 10, 2013
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!

This tale grabbed me right from the beginning, and the more the story unfolded the more entrenched I became. Sonya Dodd is a wonderfully descriptive writer, and I seriously clung to every word. I was shocked that the story took the turn that it did- it was quite unexpected.
The characters were vividly brought to life through their character traits, and they all flowed so nicely through the story that it was not hard to believe you were getting a birds eye view at this troubled family brought fully to life by the author.
Personally, I liked the fact that she didn't spend an undue amount of time describing every detail of every item in the room, etc. Anyone even slightly familiar with this time period would know quite well what was common in dress, foods, and household decor. I think the way she handled descriptions of the things that were important in the story kept this novel from getting bogged down like so many historical romances tend to do.
All I can say is "keep 'em coming, Ms. Dodd!" This is the second book I've read from this author, and look forward to getting her other books. I have no doubt her rich imagination and great writing style will prevail in those, as well!
