Oddly I would. Romance fantasy is not something I would normally read. However, there are some writers, Anne McCaffrey, and Andre Norton for a pair and I would add Charlene A. Wilson to that group of women Fantasy writers who I would read.
What did you like best about this story?
Charlene as an author has a gift for integrating her descriptions of scenes with the story progression making the environment a part of the tale. She creates conflict using common events and intertwines it with the fantasy realm she is writing about
Which character – as performed by David J. Shaughnessy – was your favorite?
David is an excellent narrator and his reading of non-characters, in other words, the action and description of events is excellent, and his voice shifting between male and female roles was well done. But this is Coles story and I felt he was the character I favored.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, the book is over six hours of listening, I listened to it in three sittings.
Any additional comments?
This is not my usual reading interest, but I did enjoy the story, the characters, and the narration. David J. Shaughnessy is a terrific narrator, and his reading fits Charlene's writing style beautifully.
Author: Charlene A. Wilson
Genre: Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
First Sentence: Cole moved as smoke, his elements converted into a dark mass.
Anna, a subtle beauty and hard worker, has lived many lifetimes, unbeknownst to her. She's presently of lowly status, but has caught the eye of one Lord Dressen, who will stop at nothing to get her.
Cole Shilo and his brothers, James and Vincent, came from Meridia, a dimension at the center of the spectrum ~ they can manipulate the elements. They are known as Grand Marshals, keeping the peace and supposedly answering to Lord Dressen.
Dressen abuses his authority and has the Shilo boys play a part of Anna's capture ~ you'll have to read the story to find out how they conform the captives for Dressen. In this process, Cole finds something out about Anna when he's drawn to kiss her with the breath of Zephyr...a soul binding breath.
Ms. Wilson's excellent world-building created dimensions, Gods, wizards, a weasel of a villain in Lord Dressen, along with a precious love story involving reincarnation, mind manipulation, and magick. Cornerstone Deep is the first in a series of the Shilo Manor brothers.
Ms. Wilson's story-stars, Cole, James, and Vincent possess their own unique abilities, but also depend on the strength and power of each other. I found each of them worthy of admiration and honor in their own right.
This is a magical, touching story of love and perseverance, one that was hard to put down. I look forward to reading the next book in Ms. Wilson's series, Cornerstone Deep Echoes.
If you're hungry for a deep, yet magical, romance, pick up a copy, you won't be disappointed.
Cornerstone Deep is a mythical realm ruled by lords and guarded by three wizard brothers: Cole, James and Vincent Shilo. Only the lords know of the brothers' wizardry; the rest of the city knows them only as the founders' sons.
They're immortal but unfortunately their women aren't. They have to `relocate their soulmate after she has been reincarnated. They will seek out her soul from lifetime to lifetime.
Sometimes they aren't successful. Cole has given up hope of finding his beloved Mianna until they `harvest' a curfew-breaker for one of the lords. He cannot ignore the calling of her soul to his even though now she is the property and under the control of Lord Dressen.
How can Cole rescue her without angering the Council of the Lords and the gods of this realm?
Wilson has a keen eye for detail and gives the planet /dimension Meridian, the setting for Cornerstone Deep, plenty of vivid details. She has created a beautiful world in which magic is powerful but has boundaries.
Love, however, has no boundaries. That is the underlying theme of Cornerstone Deep. Nothing can separate two people in love, not even the barriers of different dimensions in space.
Everything is tied up nicely at the end of Book 1, but Wilson does leave opportunities open for more excitement in Book 2. She has a knack for whetting the readers' appetite for more. I'm glad because Cole, James and Vincent are certainly characters you want to see more of.
