This book focuses on the Steam-powered civilization Myrn and three elemental stones blessed by the Goddess Navora. These stones are wanted by corrupt businessmen for greed and wealth. But there is still people working for the better good of the civilization and it is up to them to get to the stones first to protect Myrn.
I really enjoyed this book and the characters in it. There was such a great mix of characters from different fields working together and it was very ironic on how the book ended.
Kes and his adopted father M'nacht are both working in the scientific fields and notice different things happening that leads them to try and discover what is really going on and who is behind it.
There was so much unrest in Myrn that it was really interesting and I loved all the gadgets that they used for information and all of the secrets panels!
Thanks Holly Barbo, I thoroughly enjoyed being on this journey as it took me right into the story.
Most of the fabric of society depicted in this steampunk reality reflects accurately what is happening in 2016 Earth time. Same political structure. Same corruption. Banks, corporates and 10 of the richest family dynasties pull the strings behind the scenes.
The Council of Elders now exist only in remote tribes powerless to help the modern world. A few whistleblowers manage to heard briefly until the media bury them in shame and constructed villainess.
I note a few differences though: the people of Myrn all believe in one deity: the goddess Navora (huge positive compared to our religious factions all claiming theirs is the only real god); no recreational drug and no mind control/virtual reality spread by tv, movies, digital games, cyber world, amusement parks; nature is left untouched but the contamination of water by a huge corporate pharmaceutical entity. And there is no army, only a faction of guards.
Sunstone's story brings hope that maybe, just maybe, our fate can be changed overnight with a shift of paradigm, with th consciousness that this planet is our Home and what affects one concerns all.
