The Stone Bearers
by Jacque Stevens
"An epic tale of prophecy, love, magic, and fate turned on its head. The Stone Bearers will keep you turning pages to the end."—Kevin L. Nielsen, author of the bestselling Sharani series
"This story is fresh and creative. The main character is relatable and I found myself dreaming her dreams and wishing her wishes. I enjoyed both her story and the fantasy land in which she lives. I found myself lost in her world many times!"—Rebecca, 5 Star Reviewer
Fifteen-year-old Ashira just received the worst coming-of-age prophecy imaginable.
After years dreaming of oceans, prices, 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?
