Stone and Sea

by Graham Edwards

Although this is the second book in a trilogy it can be read as a novel in its own right. Not easy to get into, but worth persevering through the complexities of a new, weird and vertical world as the story line is uniquely inventive. Stay with the first 50 pages and you'll be drawn gradually into this fantasy world of Archan - an evil dragon intent on reeking revenge on a society that cast her into the abyss.

Well, Stone is a world beyond our world. We came to it through a kind of tunnel that was opened up by the eruptions of a volcano called Krakatoa in the year 1883. Both Jonah and I were on that island when it blew; so I reckon as far as our world's concerned we're dead and gone. Stone's no ordinary place though - I guess the easiest way to describe it is like the biggest damned wall you could ever imagine - it just goes on for ever. Up and down, side to side, it fades away into the mist. Endless, infinite, call it what you like. It's just damned big.
