I’m thrilled to announce that A Stone-Kissed Sea is now live everywhere in paperback and e-book!
To say this book changed my life is… not an understatement! And while I don’t know if this book will launch you on a journey to the other side of the world, I do hope it launches you on a journey of the heart and the imagination. Too cheesy? I can’t help it. I LOVE Lucien and Makeda so much! I loved writing their story. I loved doing the research for this book. And I love sharing it with you.
Lucien Thrax first appeared in A Fall of Water in the summer of 2012. He was the first of my characters to be infected by the Elixir virus, so it felt fitting to end the Elixir story arc with his book. Writing it was a joy. It was a culmination of so many things both personal and professional. I love this story, I love Lucien and Makeda, and I hope you love them, too.
I think you will. Already, so many readers and reviewers have left their thoughts over on Goodreads:
“I’m both sad and excited to see this story-arc come to an end, but what a way to do it!” —Victoria, Zemfirka Blogs
“WOW!!! I never thought I would see Lucian in this light!!” —Kellie (Goodreads reviewer)
“By the time the book is over you are wishing the story would just keep going. Once again 5 Stars and like all really good books, it leaves you with a good warm feeling that comes from those rare books that you just wish would never end.” —Doug Meeks, Amazon Top 500 reviewer/Vine Voice
“Once again, Hunter has gifted readers with an epic tale, beautifully orchestrated and rich in details. One in which the landscape becomes a living, breathing character, carrying the reader on a magic carpet ride through faraway lands where all the elements of nature intertwine and become as one.” —Sandra, Cross My Heart Book Reviews
A Final Note for Lora
While the dedication will be different in the book, here on the blog, I’d like to dedicate this book and this release to my beloved friend and developmental editor, Lora Gasway, who passed away very suddenly last Saturday. Lora loved this book, and we had a great time working on it together. In the two years I worked with her, Lora made me a better writer. She challenged me and encouraged me. She made me work harder and see things in a new light. Working on this book with her was so much fun. If we had to end on one project, I’m glad it was this one. I’m not going to lie, but I’m pretty emotional about this release. Lora is irreplaceable, both as a friend and an editor.
So, I’m dedicating this book and this release to her. Love you, Lora. You will be sorely missed.
