The stone Bearers Book Review

Fifteen-year-old Ashira just received the worst coming-of-age prophecy imaginable. 

After years dreaming of oceans, princes, and fairies, she expected the diviner to speak the words that would finally whisk her away from her ordinary desert village. Instead Ashira hears, “you will live a life of no renown.” 

Ready to choose her own fate, she discovers a djinni’s bottle and starts making wishes. When the djinni proves uncooperative and annoying, Ashira sets out to the great city of magicians to learn magic and free herself from an uneventful life as a potter's daughter. 
But there is another prophecy being whispered in the shadows. It is said that among the great magicians, there is a demon on the rise with the power to destroy the world. The djinni might be Ashira’s only chance to become someone important, or he just might be the very demon that triggered the dark prophecy. With the world on the brink of destruction, can Ashira fight her fate and stop the forces that threaten to upset the balance of the universe?

I like many others have a hard time reading self published or low budget books so to speak. They are kinda like B Movies only worse. I was happy to say that this book didn't have that feel to it at all. The characters where well developed and didn't have any issues following the story line. 

I don't want to include any spoilers but I am excited to read more from this author and hope that you give this book a shot. I got an advanced copy for my review and it would be one that I would buy and hope they make an audio book on it as well.
