This high fantasy is quite interesting in the sense that you have a group of races unknown, at least to me, that are explored through the pages. The writing is very good and entertaining.

The story is about a man who isn’t a man; he is a Weyre. This is a kind of a werewolf caused by a curse. He asks his human friend to get a very special stone, which is said to hold great powers. His hope is that this stone, which was stolen from the Tusse race many centuries before, will change him back into a human. The Tusse are a bionic race made of something like rocks, tall and very strong. So the Tusse, humans, and a Llwyn set out to find this jewel that will help their friend. (The Llwyn are a race that looks like cats that walk on two legs and play beautiful music.) Their quest will take them to many lands and to many people that may be a great risk to them.

I found this fantasy tale to be a great story. The characters are unique, have depth, and are likable. The only thing I found wrong with it is that the dialects of the different races were used too much and this slowed down my reading. Many times I had to re-read the same piece over to get what they were saying. I was taught that you only use a pair of contractions in the same phrase to not overwhelm the reader. Beside that, I recommend this book to young adults and adults alike.
