Scattered Stones

Diane McGyver

Scattered Stones is an enchanting epic fantasy novel,

a mesmerizing, breathtaking treat for the imagination.

Honour is nothing without the ones you love. 

Five years. That’s how long Bronwyn Darrow has been searching for his daughter who is trapped in the elusive Blackvale Castle dungeon. He’s grown desperate during that time and when he learns she’s being transferred to another castle, he’s willing to sacrifice everything, including honour, to rescue her.

If you love stories of adventure mixed with magic and romance set in archaic landscapes, you’ll love McGyver’s Scattered Stones. Unlike many fantasy novels, family plays a central part in this story, so be prepared for the hero to receive unwanted motherly advice.

Scattered Stones is the second book in the Castle Keepers epic fantasy series. It continues the adventures of the characters introduced in Shadows in the Stone and takes readers on a journey across Ath-o’Lea to find Isla of Maura.

McGyver wields her pencil in a similar realm J. R. R. Tolkien and Terry Brooks released their imagination. It is traditional fantasy of old with magic, legends, dragons and dwarfs.

Author: Diane McGyver

Lady Diane McGyver’s first novel Shadows in the Stone was almost 30 years in the making. The second book in her fantasy series, Scattered Stones, took a lot less time to get from first draft to publication. She’s written a few short stories that reveal the history of some of the characters in the novels, and she’s completed books 3 and 4 of the series. She is currently working on book 5, Gathered Stones.

Diane fell in love with the fantasy genre when an awesome dungeon master introduced her to Dungeons & Dragons at the age of 13. From there, she landed into the worlds created by Terry Brooks and Mercedes Lackey. By 19, she was truly lost to the other realm. Her future goals are to complete the 10-book series and to live in a peel tower near the Atlantic Ocean where she’ll raise chickens, tomatoes and Trouble.
