Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Praise for The Island Trilogy

Excellent start of a series of 3 books. The author keeps you wondering what's coming next. Great character development. This first book leaves me begging for more.- L

Love C.B. Stone! Can't wait to get more of her writing! I 'wolfed down' the 3-part "The Island" series in a few days - okay some late nights, too.- L

I'm very glad for this short story! It gave me a chance to see if I would enjoy this author and boy did I! I really appreciate her style.- T

C.B. Stone has out done herself with this book and all the others. You can't go wrong with any of her books.- A

Didn't think this book would be that short but in the little bit of writing the author does tell a good story with a few twists and turns that even I wasn't expecting. Got to tip my hat to the author for the amount of character building she does in so short a time.- B

Good first book of the series. Didn't see a lot of the twists coming. Very interested in the next part of the story.- S


Author Interview

What about the young adult science fiction genre intrigues you?

I enjoy exploring possibilities, and sci fi lets me do that. I tend to write young adult simply because I enjoy clean reads myself, and I like writing stories that are suitable for any reader.

Your books blend genres a bit, with just hints of romance... is that by design?

Somewhat. Ha. I enjoy many genres, dystopian, post-apocalyptic, paranormal, romance, suspense... so that tends to bleed into what I like to write, although I'm working on narrowing my focus a bit in future stories.

Who would enjoy this trilogy?

Anyone who enjoys short reads full of action, and likes to be kept guessing with lots of twists and turns.

About the Author

C.B. Stone is sometimes called author, writer, or purveyor of stories. One might even dub her a yarn spinner if you will. It's very possible she might be considered just a little left of normal by most, but she's cool with that. Really, she's too busy avoiding normal to care. On any given day, you might find Stone pounding away at a keyboard in sunny Florida, contemplating waves, contemplating life and dreaming up more exciting stories to share with readers. Except Sunday's of course. Sunday's are God's day, so you'll often find her making her best "joyful noise" with her local church praise team. When not pounding poor fingers to bloody nuggets and reinventing the definition of eye strain, C.B. Stone enjoys living it up, doing the family thing, the kid thing, and the friend thing. And in her downtime, reading the minds of fans. Also being invisible. Being invisible is fun.
