Heart Stone by Elle Katharine White

by Elle Katharine White
352 pages
Published by Harper Voyager

Review: I seem to be on some kind of Jane Austen kick as retellings and adaptations have been catching my attention lately.  If you love Pride and Prejudice then you will enjoy Heart Stone, since it has many similarities to Austen's classic in terms of names, relationships, and character personalities.  Aliza Bentaine and Alastair Daired don't really like each other at the beginning, but Aliza's sister and Daired's best friend are falling for each other from the start.  So, the main relationships are there, so it can be a little predictable in terms of that.  But, there are twists to this version, especially with the addition of dragons, dragon riders, hobgoblins, and trolls...just to name a few.  This retelling is heavy on the fantasy since even dragons talk and have a personality all their own.  If you've never read Pride and Prejudice, but enjoy a good fantasy, then you won't be disappointed. Although most of the story generally follows the P&P story line, it changes towards the end and you'll enjoy the exciting conclusion.

*Recieved a DRC for an honest review.
Rating: 3.5 Hearts!
