    I love this series. It is crime drama or detective mystery with evil supernatural humans or other world beings doing bad things and a conscientious mage/wizard working out ways to banish, neutralize, or eradicate the magic wielding bad guys.

    I've become addicted to these books. In this one, Jason Thayer has disappeared. Though the police know he's missing, they haven't a clue where to look, nor the knowhow of how to go about finding him. It is up to Alastair to track him down, rescue him, kill the evil & balance what info he can share with the police.Alastair soon realizes that somethings are beyond his capacity to deal with on his own. He'll need the help of the person who accidentally brought the demon into the earthly realm, & is killing people.

    Sad but goodReally developing with each book. The characters are getting deeper and stronger. There felt like more loss in this one but growth as well.

    This was the best book so far in the series. Can't wait to start book 7.

    I really enjoy this series. Alastair is a great lead character and the adventures he gets caught up in are exciting and new. I'm glad I found this author on Amazon.

    Blood and Stone, an Alaistar Stone novelby R.L. KingA rousing good story with a rousing evil villain. It was nice to see (a) Stone working as an individual mage (Even though Jason joins him for the last half of the adventure; Verity doesn't appear until after all the excitement is over.), (b) an intertwining storyline (although I wish there were more backstory regarding the Chumash, whether the Chumash were a real tribe or a made up one), (c) more about how the Ojai legends might tie into the central problem in the novel, or at least to the supernatural, and (d) some real action involving non-magical folks who are forced by circumstances to accept the existence of the supernatural world. As usual, King's writing style is easy to read, with the plotting and pacing working seamlessly to create the feeling of being in the story, rather than just reading the story. Editing was good, with no grammar or syntax problems jumping out at me. One thing that I particularly liked was the use (by Stone) of the U.K. term "take-away," for what we here in the U.S. usually refer to as "take-out" food. That doesn't mean there weren't a few off-putting things. For instance, evidently the author's new go-to phrase is "scrubbed at." Stone "scrubbed at" either his hair or his face at least 5 times in the novel (385, 1267, 1927, 5364 and 5422). Something else that seemed unlikely to me occurred very early, at 323 on my Kindle, where Stone takes a phone book and looks up the names of Jason's friends which he'd gleaned from a newspaper article. If Jason has been out of high school about 10 years at the time of the writing (2016), he'd be about 28. Chances are most of his friends don't have landlines, just smart phones, and they would not have a listing in the local phone directory. I understand that the author needed to find a way for Stone to find them -- for me this was a missed opportunity to use a little magic. I'm still bummed, that although Stone is constantly touted as one of the most possible white (or tinged gray) mages of the time, he still seems to be consistently outdone by every magical being he comes up against. And what was Carly's full backstory? She was pivotal in the defeat of the villain in this book, but her connection to the Chumash is never really explored -- we ended up knowing more about Susan Washburn and Karn Blanco than we did the one woman who had the power to defeat "Faces." Ditto for Edna -- I wanted to know more. At least in Edna's case, if King writes more Stone books, readers should learn more about her as Verity will be studying with her. I was encouraged by the ending of the book, which has Verity going off to study in Ojai and Jason planning to pursue a non-magical P.I. business. Perhaps it will change the dynamic in future novels and we will see Stone working alone more, or with other mages, or even with Jason and Verity in a more equal type of partnership.

    I love it when the author shares the adventure with all her characters. This is a really good story with Alastair and Jason.

    Excellent Series!I admit that I knew nothing of this person who goes by R.L. King, prior to reading all six books of the Alastair Stone Chronicles... But what I do know now is that she's a fantastic author. Never once, in all six books, did I find myself lost in the story, or bored by it.It was a thrilling read, & I, for one, am greatly thankful for her creativity, & her dedication to her craft.

    Bloody fantastic!The books keep getting better and better. I am looking forward for many more stories to come. I kept expecting more about the other magic source and figuring how to use it. Guess that is a story yet to come.

    Solid outing for Stone.I liked the book and the story developed nicely. I really only held back on 5 stars because I want to see Stone kick more ass.
