The Water Stone is second book in a high fantasy adventure series brought to life by memorable, vibrant characters.
After successfully recovering the Fire Stone, fifteen-year-old Matt wants nothing more than to enjoy himself with his friends in the magical forest of Amaldan, home of the elves, but Matt knows that the evil elf Malik will never stop seeking the Stones of the Elements. And when a plague from ancient years resurfaces, threatening the lives of an entire city, the only way to ensure their survival is to find the second Stone of the Elements, the Water Stone, which possesses mysterious magical healing powers.
Matt, Samsire, and their friends, set off on another quest, following the clues of a long-dead dwarf adventurer, as they desperately race against time and Malik's forces to find the Water Stone before it's too late.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT THE WATER STONE:
"Once again Riley Carney has succeeded in writing an enormously entertaining tale. The Water Stone is filled with wonderful adventure and has a quick pace highlighted by a race against time. The tension is balanced with some terrific humor, and the continued development of the characters will delight those who've read the first book (The Fire Stone) in this series.
Writing a series is a challenge for an author as it's oftentimes quite difficult not to repeat prior tensions and scenes, but Riley Carney pulled it off brilliantly.
I won't put in a spoiler, but I will say that threaded within the adventures are subtle messages that young readers will recognize and appreciate, as will their parents. This is a terrific book, and the entire series would make an excellent gift for young readers as well as those who are simply young at heart."
