The proofreading and editing are pretty good. There are a few basic issues that should have been caught since the proofreading is so good, to include using the word "repelling" (the opposite of attracting) when what was meant was "rappelling." A character says "I'll be doggone!" when it should have been "I'll be doggoned!" "It's gold-flinted eys" should have been "It's gold-flecked eyes." Also, there's the point where a character who is supposed to be a best-selling author says, "Together. You and I." Argh. It should have been, "Together. You and me." And a best-selling author would have known that. At least gosh, I sure HOPE a best-selling author would know that.
I read this over the course of two evenings, and I'll admit to skipping some paragraphs of description here and there. It's a very easy read because there are very few details to track (alas). All in all, it isn't a bad effort...but it isn't a great one, either. This could have been a very compelling duology if the author had taken the time with it.
The pace is fast, there's a bit of romance, mystery, and a bit of supernatural all mixed in together, that makes for an interesting read.
I was not disappointed. I enjoyed a glimpse into Michelle Muto's imagination and sometimes felt I was right there with her characters.
This book also helped to reignite my own interest in storytelling and to get back to writing fiction again.

Nevertheless! Of Shadow and Stone was a great read for me. I enjoyed getting to know all of the characters. I wish there was a second book! Haha.
