Elinor struggles to find her place in the new world. She once dreamed of great things. Of becoming a hero in the ways of the old world. But now she is a Reaper. And her duty is clear. Destroy the old. Herald the new.

Review:

A Reaper of Stone was a surprisingly good read. Especially since it is so short. I didn't realize it was a novella when I started, but that didn't really effect the story. 

I was really surprised that a fantasy novel could be such a good read with so few pages. Normally I would have imagined that you need a longer story to be able to set up the world and everything, but somehow this one just worked. You get the information you need about the world and the people organically and it was a good read. 

Elinor is a Reaper. She is in charge or swearing in the new ruler of a land, only when she gets there to do just that some issues arise. She wants to do the right thing, but it just doesn't look like that will be possible. The bad guys, the bullies, usually get what they want. 

Overall I really enjoyed this story. It was a quick read, but had a lot of cool elements. I look forward to reading the next chapter once it is released.
