What is THE REFLECTING STONE about?
TITLE: THE REFLECTING STONE
The following is a blurb that could appear on the back cover of the novel. On the front cover you'd see a picture of two naked young men in a pond, one of them holding a small black cube about the size of his fist, both of them marveling at it. Here's the blurb:
Thor has two problems. First, he is in love with his best friend, Sven, even though he knows his village will not allow it. Second, he has found the most powerful magic stone of all, the Reflecting Stone, which is claimed by both the Great Wizard and greedy King Harald. Each will kill, or worse, to have it! Shunned by his village for his forbidden love, an outcast hunted by all and protected only by a heretical band of Mystics, will Thor learn to wield the power of the stone to save himself and those like him? Or are the others right, and he is by his very nature an abomination to the gods? As he moves closer to realizing his Destiny, will his forbidden love destroy him, or become the key to unlocking the power of the Reflecting Stone?
