A good man isn’t down until everyone who matters has lost hope.

Isla of Maura hasn’t seen Liam Jenkins for six years, since they pledged to unite. Her thoughts often drift to him and not long ago, his thoughts invaded hers. She sets out to find him, but the man she finds is far from the one in her childhood memories, and the secrets he keeps threaten her life and the lives of her travelling companions.

If you love stories of adventure mixed with magic and romance set in archaic landscapes, you’ll love McGyver’s Healing Stones. Unlike many fantasy novels, family plays a central role in this story, so be prepared for the hero to have her heart strings plucked by the song of home.

Healing Stones is the 4th book in the Castle Keepers epic fantasy series. It picks up the story of Isla and Liam where her kidnapping and the murder of his das tore them apart.

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, hauflins and dwarfs.

Buy Healing Stones today and continue your journey into the Land of Ath-o’Lea where magic and sword clash.
