    1. *** I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review *** I have to say, I was eagerly anticipating getting my hands on this book from the moment I first heard about it. I mean, just the raw elements alone sound like such a unique and intriguing recipe for exactly my kind story. A young adult fantasy set in a land of magic and mystery, a world governed by prophecy and overseen by powerful Stone Bearers chosen by the Gods. A land in which children travel to a city of magician [...]

    2. An Epic Adventure that will make it hard to pause reading till the end.Love the characters and the story line. It is well developed and filled with action sequences that will keep your interest in every chapter. There are some unexpected twists and the ending is really amazing.I’m so glad to have read this book of fantasy genre and hope to see more of this author. Note: I received an ARC from The Future House Publishing Team for review purposes.

    3. Many thanks to Ryan Mendenhall from Future House Publishing for giving me an eARC of The Stone Bearers in exchange of an honest review.The story is about a fifteen-year-old Ashira who just received her coming-of-age prophecy. She expected her prophecy would be something like "You will travel across the desert and there you will find your prince." But much to her dismay, her prophecy isn't anything like that.You will live a life of no renown."After the events of learning how she will live her li [...]

    4. * I received a copy of this book for free from Future House Publishers in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. *Imagine the excitement you would feel as a young 15 year old girl knowing that your prophecy is finally being revealed to you! You may be dreaming of exciting adventures, princes and fairies and lovely beauty all around you. Then reality of those dreams and thoughts being shattered to steer your life in a direction you weren't quite expecting to find. When the ordina [...]

    5. Thank you to Future House Publishing for giving me an eArc of The Stone Bearers in exchanged for an unbiased review. The story follows the life of a fifteen-years-old girl name Ashira, who received news of her not so pleasant prophecy she was expecting. Instead of the “whisk away to a beautiful castle to be with a prince,” her bubble was burst to reality. Dang!Finding out her future wasn’t matching her check-off list (no beautiful prince, no perfect life etc.) she does what every girl does [...]

    6. Ashira, just received the worst prophecy of all time. She, who longs for travel and adventure and maybe even a prince to marry, had all her hopes and dreams dashed when the Seer told her the best path for her would be a "life of no renown".But how can life be so unfair? Her sisters had already received fantastic prophecies and were living much better lives than those of a potter's daughter should.Determined to make her own destiny, Ashira volunteers to follow a Stone Bearer and learn more about [...]

    7. I got to read early drafts of this to help critique, and I'm beyond excited to see it being published. An epic fantasy with memorable characters and an ending you won't see coming. Ashira is doing what many of us try to do: taking control of her own fate, no matter what the ill-fated prophecy says. Though set in a magical world, anyone who's wanted more out of life, wanted out of a small-town, or wanted to blaze their own trail, can relate to Ashira. The djinn she awakens is snarky and hilarious [...]

    8. Stone Bearers is a nicely written fantasy novel, very suitable to give to your tween or teen children. There is magic in the story, used in a different way than many other fantasy books on the market. That, combined with the use of newly created mythological gods, create an appealing story that is easy to immerse yourself in. I was a little leery of reading an advanced copy, thinking that it might be rough, lots of mistakes, cheesy, etc. But it was not. I would definitely recommend this book to [...]

    9. I didn't know what to expect from this first time author, but I ended up really enjoying this book. Ashira is a girl who wants to live a life of adventure and will do anything to make that happen. When an opportunity arises to leave her village, she takes it. From there, it's a coming of age story. I liked the mechanics of magic in this world. There's a cleric for each God who are the main users of magic.Received an advance copy from Future House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

    10. I found this book very hard to get into. But once I was about 50 pages in, I was sucked in. I like her writing style and the story line was well thought out. I would definitely read a sequel.

    11. 3.5 Ashira, a teenage girl from the desert village of Saban with wild hopes and dreams for the future, receives the worst prophecy she could imagine:you will live a life of no renownHowever, when a stranger comes to her village, with said stranger comes a strange blue glass bottle: the bottle of a djinni. Ashira discovers this bottle and takes it for herself in hopes of changing her dreadful prophecy.I really liked the idea of this book. There is no denying that its concept was interesting and u [...]

    14. A new look of the world of DjinnIf you have been waiting for the chance to read a Djinn book then this is the one for you. I really enjoyed the blended Wizardry/ Aladdin take this book produced. The main characters have plenty of personality and stay true to form throughout the book. Of course I already have my favorites but I'll leave that a mystery and just say they have given me a new look on hero's/ heroine type roles most books produce. I was given a copy for a unbiased opinion and I have t [...]

    16. I got this book in exchange for an honest review. This is 3.5 stars for me. This book is about a girl who lives in a desert country. On her 15th birthday she gets a prophecy that she will "live a life with no renown". Ashira is deeply frustrated and sad because she wanted a life full of adventures. When a person with magical powers shows up in her town, Ashira begs her to take her with her. So Ashira ends up in a foreign country at a school. Before she goes, she finds a magic bottle with a Djinn [...]

    17. Words can’t even express how much I liked this book!!! I shouldn’t say like….I loved this book!!!Ashira was a hoot. Her reaction to finding her out her destiny was exactly what I would have done if I had been in her shoes. And then her determination (along with finding Jin and his bottle!!!) to change it resulted in some dangerous, but funny, adventures.It did take me a little bit to figure out who Jin was. The author didn’t hide it but didn’t put it out there either.The writing was su [...]

    18. What a great fantasy read. The Prologue had me hooked, I got a little distracted in chapter 1 after the great prologue because it flipped around on me( it don’t take much to confuse me), but it didn’t take long to grab me back. It’s a book filled with adventures of Young Ahira trying to leave her small village and the modest life of a potter’s daughter to going to the city with the stone bearer where she can find her prince and become someone so much bigger than her life now, meet and ma [...]

    19. Ashira is so disappointed by her prophecy. She wants adventure in her life and all she gets is a "life of no renown." That is a far cry from marring a prince.At first you think it is the genie in a bottle story but it is so much more than that. This book was longer than most of the Kindle books lately but that is because there is so much to this story. I would highly recommend it. The characters are interesting and there are a few things that you will figure out as you go along. There is even a [...]

    20. The Stone Bearers is a wonderful book! I liked this a lot. It is a rather long book but well worth it! This is a story about a girl who after hearing a less than exciting prophecy about herself decides to go out and be more. She finds herself in a new land and makes a couple friends. She gets to mean elves and a djinni. There is a rumor of a demon going around and no one knows exactly what it means. I absolutely love the ending of this book!! It was great that everyone got what they really wante [...]

    21. Absolutely enthralling!I absolutely loved this book, it was a pure joy to read! Packed with adventure, action and a hint of romance, it kept me hooked from the first page. The characters were intricate and believable without getting too deep into dramatic emotions. The storyline was fantastic and fast-paced without any dull moments. It was so hard to put this book down that I found myself reading at every chance I could get! It was a true pleasure indulging myself in this read and I'm left daydr [...]

    22. 15 year old Ashira is searching for her prophecy, trying to do anything to become someone important. Will the world be saved from destruction or will Ashira win against her faith? I found this book to be well written a lot of fun to read. You can really see the story unfold, like you are in the book yourself. You really learn about Ashira and you see the pain and troubles that she goes through along the way. Whether it be, making wishes, or learning magic You really get to see how much heart she [...]

    23. The Stone Bearers features an adventure-seeking girl from a small desert town and a prince who wants to escape his title. Ashira receives her prophecy, something every girl receives when they turn fifteen, and hers is so pathetic that she strives to change it. Ashira and Jin go through some crazy adventures as they try to figure out what the prophecy means and how they can stop it. I enjoyed the story and liked watching Ashira grow as well as Jin. The other characters are fun and I can’t wait [...]

    24. Poor Ashira… to be told she will amount to very little in life. When she comes across a precocious Djinni, she make a grand wish. There is a lot of mystery and a few demons (not real scary just weird). Now the Djinni makes her Princess of the stone. Until she figures that all out he will not grant her wish. This is an adventurous tale of destiny. I think the biggest question after travels and adventure would be will she still want her wish granted… or will she be happy to live a life of no r [...]

    25. I was looking forward to reading this book and it delivered.An epic fantasy full of memorable characters and an ending you will not be expecting.I found myself reading though this story page after page till the end. Great story from start to finish and kept my interest all the way thru the book.A good read for the young teen and also interesting for an adult read too. I will surely be giving a copy to my teen son to read as part of his required reading list.I received a copy of the book for my h [...]

    26. The life threads of these characters were skillfully and beautifully woven throughout this story into what will be an amazing memory whenever I think back on this book.The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is because I did feel the book lag a few times but then something different and unexpected would happen and I would snap right back.Give The Stone Bearers a try. I think you'll enjoy it!I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

    27. Ashira longs for an exciting life, but is told that she will never have it. Determined to change her fate, Ashira uses a djinni to try and wish her way out of her ordinary life. When that doesn't work, she runs away and tries to learn magic.Ashira is a stubborn and determined girl and she wants more out of life. I liked the story, I thought it was well written and I would recommend it to readers who love fantasy and adventure stories.

    28. I received this book in an unedited form from #FutureHousepub in return for my honest review.I love to read and was excited about this book as it is a fantasy fiction. A lovely book about changing your destiny, choosing your path and going in search of what you know you can be. Fantasy, fiction, magic, suspense and foreign lands. A great read for ages 12- adults.

    29. I was offered a copy of the Stone Bearers to review. The story starts quite inconspicuously but then bang and it unfolds in a most interesting way. I really enjoyed the read. Good pace, the characters are well developed and I especially had fun reading about the Jin in the bottle and his antics. I do not want to be a spoilsport so no more. This is definetely a good read.#FutureHousePub

    30. This story really caught my attention because not only is original but it also played with my emotions from the beginning, as it was so realistic that I really put myself in Ashira's shoes. How would you feel if all your dreams depended on a prophecy? Would you settle for continuing living according to their standards? Or will you dare to follow your dream and reach your happiness in your own way? Settling down is sometimes more difficult than it seems, but what requires true courage is to make [...]
