Stonehill Downs follows Mal, a powerful mage who functions as Lord Vocent, the king’s personal forensic scientist and detective.  Magic and murder are his calling.  Never have the two entangled in quite as terrifying a manner as on Stonehill Downs, where Avani, a Goddess-gifted outsider, has discovered a host of gruesome corpses reeking of supernatural malfeasance.  The investigation is haunted by ghosts of Mal’s past, and the two quickly learn that they must cast aside their secrets if they are to succeed in unearthing the pervading evil—before it’s unleashed from the boundaries of the Downs, straight into the heart of the kingdom.

 AUTHOR


Sarah RemyIn 1994 Sarah Remy earned a BA in English Literature and Creative Writing from Pomona College in California. Since then she’s been employed as a receptionist at a high-powered brokerage firm, managed a boutique bookstore, read television scripts for a small production company, and, more recently, worked playground duty at the local elementary school.
When she’s not taking the service industry by storm, she’s writing fantasy and science fiction. Sarah likes her fantasy worlds gritty, her characters diverse and fallible, and she doesn’t believe every protagonist deserves a happy ending.
Before joining the Harper Voyager family, she published with EDGE, Reuts, and Madison Place Press.
Sarah lives in Washington State with plenty of animals and people, both. In her limited spare time she rides horses, rehabs her old home, and supervises a chaotic household. She can talk to you endlessly about Sherlock Holmes, World of Warcraft, and backyard chicken husbandry, and she’s been a member of one of Robin Hobb’s longest-running online fan clubs since 2002.
Her latest is the fantasy novel, Stonehill Downs.

REVIEW
Among the people of Stonehill Downs, Avani is a stranger.  She and her raven, Jacob come upon four tragically murdered men on her property and there are three Kingsmen .  She wonders why, but using her visions tell her nothing.   Malachi, the vocent, speaks to the dead is investigating, he finds a killer that takes down the whole village.   That leaves only Avani, Mal and Liam to travel to try to save the kingdom from an unknown danger and possibly solve the murders.
Ms. Remy writes with an unique style entwining fantasy, suspense and mystery that will keep the reader turning the pages to find out what's next. I loved the connection between Avani and Mal.  Avani is a strong woman who will stand up against anyone to save her own.  Mal fights the demons that are haunting from his past since the suspicious death of his mentor makes him sad and lonely.  This doesn't stop him from completely  solving the murder.   The author wrote a suspenseful mystery with lots of twists and turns that she weaves into a web for a tale the reader could get lost in very quickly.  It is a quick read but that doesn't stop the reader from turning the pages to see what has been added to the web.  This book, thanks to the author, has been written for everyone and I would recommend it to everyone.  Don't let this wonderful story pass  you by.  Get a copy of STONEHILL DOWNS and you will find  you will read and end up re-reading this tale.

I was given a complimentary copy of STONEHILL DOWNS from the author, Sara Remy and Pump Up Your Book for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
