The Heart of Stone by Ben Galley

The Heart of Stone is the first book of Ben Galley that I ever got to read, and oh-boy do I ache for more.

Task is, and was for all of his life, a war machine. Build with stone and magic more than four hundred years ago, his only purpose is to serve. Bought and sold between Kings, Generals and Warlords, Task doesn’t pick sides - he kills everyone instead. But just because he is good at it, it doesn’t mean that he likes it. So when he’s given a chance for redemption, he is willing to sacrifice everything to get it.

The golems were originally status symbols. Simple magic tricks to entertain and boast to travellers. When a golem one day defended a Chanark king against an assassin, they began to used for war. A race started, one to build bigger and better machines of war. From stone, to bone, to wood, to mud, to flesh, golems have fought alongside men for decades. They are made to wreak havoc. In Haspia, where the finest golem-builders in the Harmony reside, the world golem means chaos.

Ben Galley’s first stand-alone novel is an engaging and exquisite story with interesting premise and a different setting than your average fantasy book. From the fascinating world-building to the intriguing, colorful and memorable characters, The Heart of Stone is a pleasure to read.

Galley took a risk in not following the traditional three-act structure, relying instead on the readers’ pure interest in the characters until the plot is laid in the second half of the book. The risk paid off, and the author successfully managed to braid themes of morals, ethics and principles with the POV of an immortal Golem.

The Heart of Stone will be released on March 30, 2017 and there’s only one thing that you should do. Pre-order.

Will of Fire

Hashirama was also depicted sitting on a throne-like chair with a similar sculpture in the background. According to Hiruzen Sarutobi , this is what gives Konohagakure shinobi the strength to continue fighting against all odds, building willpower and strength of character. It is also symbolic of the hopes and dreams of the previous generation being passed to the next; for example, when Asuma Sarutobi was killed, his hopes and dreams were passed to Shikamaru Nara , who asked that Asuma's will would in turn be passed on to his and Kurenai 's child. For Asuma and Shikamaru "King" refers to the unborn children who will inherit Konoha; and protection of the "King" is protection of the future generation. Sign In Don't have an account?

But while the Will of Fire encourages love and peace, the Will of Stone is a philosophy that seems much more fitting for the typical shinobi, advocating individual strength of body and mind and a determination to be unmovable from one's chosen path. This philosophy can cause ninja of other villages to consider Iwa shinobi to have a 'heart of stone' when they seem to care more about a successful mission or campaign than their comrades. Iwa shinobi may also be regarded as hard headed, as they tend to stubbornly resist any opposition, refuse to negotiate until they have no choice, and avoid straying from a plan in motion. But, whether uncaring and mulish or determined and unyielding, generations of strong Iwagakure shinobi have been shaped by the Will of Stone. The largest threat the Will of Stone ever faced was the Yellow Flash.

It had been more than a decade since he'd retaken his former position as Hokage…and today his predecessor's son was graduating. A bittersweet day, the best kind. Great sadness, intermingled with great hope. The dead could live on through their children, the legends that the young and alive would accumulate. Even this Academy, nurturer of the young and alive, had risen from the proverbial grave. It was a different place from what Namikaze Minato would have remembered.

Writing the epilogue to that story made me want to work on this one again. This is a stronger, more resolute Sandaime Hokage, but his world won't be an easy one. As you shall see. Several senior ninja now had new, internal duties. Two Uchiha spied on the Hyuuga. The Nara clan spied on the Inuzuka.
