I had heard a lot of good things about Black Stone Heart, so my expectations were high going in. Obviously, as a grimdark writer myself, I knew it would be right in my wheelhouse, as long as it delivered. But of course, it is often the case that high expectations have a way of souring our enjoyment of things. After reading Black Stone Heart, I can assure you, that was NOT the case. I loved this book! It’s probably my favorite read in over a year. It got its hooks in me right away and did not let up.
This is not BookNest’s official SPFBO 6 review of Black Stone Heart. I’m reviewing Black Stone Heart because I personally feel that I have to. I’m reviewing it because it’s just so freaking good.
Black Stone Heart is my second venture into the madness that is Michael R. Fletcher's imagination, the first being Smoke and Stone, and like said book, I was once more captivated.
