About the Author
I’m a writer. I tell stories. The adventure began around the time a few astronauts were nancing about on the moon. There may have been offroading, there may have been golf; but all I saw was one giant leap for mankind. I was reading comic books and dreaming of when I’d get to grow up to be Spiderman. The tales of heroes, old and new, infected my otherwise somber way of thinking, and what came out on the other side resolved itself into a love of adventure. I’ve embraced the tangents of my life as fodder for material, from such relatively mundane (and disassociated) occupational interruptions like working as a hotel manager, music studio engineer, Middle Eastern drummer for bellydancers, and a crisis response manager. I’ve even picked up a few foreign languages, which fed right back into my love of English. One night, not too long ago, as I told my daughter a bedtime story – one she and I were making up – it just clicked for me. Her enthusiastic expression and engagement reminded me of the one commonality of all my experiences that had meant so much to me: storytelling. I returned to writing, to telling stories. What feats and adventures await me next? Whispers suggest a children's anthology, a contemporary paranormal horror series, a pair of follow-up additions to the Chronicles of Aesirium, and an assortment of stand-alone science fiction and fantasy novels. Astoundingly, with all that in motion, I still continue to play the piano and doumbek in my free time. Rumors persist that I may have invented some sort of time machine. But… that’s another story for another time. * * * * * Born in California, Ren Cummins lived in three more states and one other country before eventually settling down in Seattle, Washington. There with his wife and their daughter, their two dogs and one of the heaviest cats in existence, he juggles a love of writing, music, science fiction and the occasional desire to make an honest buck. He collaborates with other authors in the Pacific Northwest and elsewhere, helping redefine and expand the opportunities available in the field of self-publication, e-publishing and social media, and has also written for other projects, steampunk-related and otherwise. His CD, "Obsidian Bridges", is also available through Amazon's MP3 Download department.

Suitable for ages from 8-108, The Morrow Stone is a great story for bedtime reading and is adult enough to keep adults engrossed as easily as children. As the first in a trilogy, it also does a great job of hinting at things to come, leaving you hungry to get your hands on the second volume.
But I must say this book is even better then the 1st in the series. I am purchasing the 3rd book in the series this evening and I am sure I will not be disappointed at all.
To the author if you read these. Thanks for the enjoyment I have gotten out of these books thus far, you have done a great job and would love to see these in a series on TV.
The author brings you into a world where Magic and Steam Tech collide, and melds it so perfectly that you can't imagine it being told any other way. He pays great attention to detail in his descriptions of tech, magic, or surroundings, but always leaves enough mystery to let the reader decide for themselves how it all might actually work.
The characters are well developed, but you can tell there's much more to their story. You'll quickly find yourself immersed in their lives, perhaps even concerned for their well being, which I always see as a sign of a good story.
The other great thing I found this book to be is genre spanning. It doesn't matter if you're a fan of Fantasy, Steampunk, or Adventure - If you like any of those genre, you'll be pulled into the story in this book.
To be honest, I had a really hard time putting this book down once I started. By the time you finish this book, you'll want more from this series, I promise you - I know I do.
Once I began reading I literally couldn't stop until I finished the book.
If you are fan of steampunk, magic, or just plain fun adventures, I highly recommend this series. Starting book 3 tonight!
Also there are talking animals.
Seriously, get this series.
