Kurzbeschreibung

There’s a cauldron of trouble brewing in Valloaria…

Download Lodestone today and strap on your broomstick –you’re in for a hell of a ride: The Witch-Hunt Series.

Two tales entwine (excerpts below).
Sabrina and Lauren’s tales entwine – linked by blood and magic. Sabrina, a newly fledged healer, is thrust out of her sheltered life at Mistress Florisah’s healing school after the destruction of the witch-ancestor portraits. An anti-witchcraft militia is poised on Karthalon’s borders threatening full scale genocide, unless Sabrina, the last of Lauren’s bloodline, can destroy the Lodestone, and restore magic to Valloaria, but the Lodestone is buried deep within the heart of the Order’s headquarters. Sabrina struggles to accept this suicide mission, and is distracted by her inappropriate affection for Micah, a prospect monk. Lauren’s ghost haunts Sabrina’s dreams as her diary reveals the tragic events behind Lauren’s actions. With invasion imminent, Sabrina embarks on her quest armed only with a sliver of the Lodestone, and Lauren’s diary but how can a lone girl prevail against an army?

Excerpt - Lauren
They attacked me alone, in pairs and in mass with their witchy ways, but their magic fell short; I was immune. Blasts of power seared from their fingertips and stonework exploded above, below and next to me, but nothing penetrated the brilliant glow of the Lodestone and they fell back, shrieking in frustration. I glowered at those not fast enough to move out of me way and they vaporized in an orange flash, to black flakes that I trampled underfoot.
Excerpt - Sabrina
A shirtless youth, with his back to her, hummed as he brushed a dark horse. The horse was standing perfectly still as if the boy’s song had lulled him to sleep. Sabrina silently observed the prospect as he worked. He was tall with a slender build, but she could see the muscles in his tanned back and arms ripple with each stroke. His brown hair was caught up in an intricate knot threaded by two long feathers; one red, the other purple. She’d never met anyone like him before.
She shuffled forward to get a better view, but her brush whacked into the wooden partition. He whirled around and she found herself staring into the brownest eyes, framed by the longest lashes she’d ever seen. They gawked at each other for a moment before Sabrina rediscovered her tongue. “I … I was sent to care for your horses.”
He pointed with his brush, to the horses behind him and said, “I’ve finished the others. Only Alloni, the brown and white, needs attention.”
Sabrina scurried to the indicated stall. Where was his shirt? As if reading her thoughts, he casually reached down and grabbed a white shirt. Slowly, he pulled it over his damp shoulders and Sabrina hastily focused on the horse. Her strokes were a bit shorter and harder than she normally applied and the horse shifted beneath the brush. Before she could correct herself, strong fingers, radiating warmth, slipped over hers and a voice laced with musk, breathed into her ear. “Not so firm. Alloni likes long, languid strokes – like this.”
Heat blazed into spots on her cheeks as she followed his movements. After several strokes he said, “That’s it, you’ve got the knack of it now.”
He released her hand and stepped away. Sabrina felt as awkward as a newborn foal so she kept her eyes averted and silently busied herself with the horse. From outside, a muffled yell filtered through the stable and the boy said, “Deakon wants me. Will you be all right finishing up?”
She didn’t trust herself to speak. “Ah-ha.”

This is a wonderfully written story of good versus evil, and the consequences of actions taken in the name of revenge. Sabrina is looking forward to her graduation as a healer through the Rite of Ancestors, but as an orphan, no one knows which witch, if any, will claim her as their bloodline. The only two people that know her dark past is Mistress Florisah, her teacher and a monk named Deakon. During the Rite, Sabrina discovers she is the last remaining descendant of Lauren the Destroyer. Armed with Lauren’s diary and a silver of stone from the Lodestone, Sabrina sets off on a mission to heal the Lodestone and undo the wrongs of Lauren the Destroyer.

The story from Lauren’s diary is interwoven throughout the main plot and I eagerly looked forward to each time I went back into that storyline. Scott uses two very distinctive writing styles between the two plots, which I really enjoyed. She’s a master of description and as the reader, you can’t help but feel Lauren’s plight as she searches for her stolen child.

I do feel that Lauren’s plot is stronger than the main one with Sabrina, but that’s probably from the effect of 1st person to 3rd person. Sabrina has to overcome her own insecurities and her budding romantic feelings for Micah. And at the end, she ultimately ends up feeling the same responsibilities for her actions that Lauren did for hers.

As stated this is book one of the Lodestone series, and I look forward to book two. What secrets is Mistress Florisah keeping? Who is Dandelin? What about Micah and Sabrina?

I highly recommend this book and give it my 5 feathers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable 10. Juli 2017
Von Karen Ingalls - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
An enjoyable read but geared more the Young Adult audience. The main character, Sabrina is a witch with healing powers and the only one who can cast off the spell of evil in Valloaria. Can she do it? Does she do it? The build-up to this important part of the story took up almost the whole book and I think it her travels up to that point could have been shortened.
All in all I did enjoy the book, the characters and locations were well described and believable. Loved the scenes with the aeons (giant white birds).
3.0 von 5 Sternen Okay But Disappointing 26. Mai 2017
Von T.O.Powell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was very good in parts but often read more like an insta-love teen novel in other parts. The characters didn't feel very real and I was disappointed in the ending. I think Lauren would have taken care of all the evil guys much better than Sabrina did as she was pretty lame with all that power. But then if she'd killed all the bad guys at the end there wouldn't be any need to draw out the story into a series.

I appreciate the free read but I won't be continuing with the story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Bring on Book 2! 10. Mai 2014
Von Jypsycat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I wish there was a way to post 4-1/2 stars, or even 4-3/4 stars. The book isn't perfect - no book is - but it's pretty darn close. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and was greatly disappointed to find there's not already a 'Book 2' I could segue immediately into. While the plot line is a bit formulaic (and I don't mean that in a bad way - I'll read about witches and monsters and magic until the dragons come home), the characters are not. Each is well-written and immediately an image of a character is formed in your mind. One reviewer mentioned it started a bit like Harry Potter, but I never saw a hint of a HP connection aside from the main character being a young person and the element of magic. It was an interesting twist when a person I originally thought of as some sort of sadistic, evil harridan (Lauren), was shown to be just like everyone else; loving her child, trying to live the right way and do the right thing, and having it all go horribly wrong. The only thing I thought the book might have been able to do without was the romantic interactions sparking between Sabrina and Micah (some were a little too detailed for younger readers in my opinion); however I could see the pattern the author is developing - older characters who dealt with the same romantic attraction dilemma, the problems encountered and the solutions they came up with that just flat...don't...work. I hope something continues to grow between the young couple and they find a way to overcome everyone's efforts to separate them and the dire predictions of what will be lost if they do get together, but I guess I'll see when the remaining books come out. Good read, Wendy Scott!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great read 29. August 2014
Von Denise Gardner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
'Lodestone: (Witch-Hunt) was a fantastic read. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down. The storyline was well written and well thought out. I liked how this story played out. The descriptive scenes and scenery were very good. The adventure throughout was intriguing. I truly enjoyed reading this book. The characters were well defined and the lead, Sabrina, was a strong young woman that grew as a healer with a mission. The mythological aspect was awesome. This book is a great add to your tbr list.
