Isle of Blood and Stone by Makiia Lucier - ADVISABLE

Isle of Blood and Stone (Blood and Stone, #1) by Makiia Lucier, 389 pages. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018.  

Language: PG (6 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: PG-13.  



Three friends lost the people they loved when two princes were kidnapped and killed eighteen years ago.  Elias is a map maker and when a curious map that looks like his father’s work shows up in his kingdom, the young king, Ulises, and his cousin, Mercedes, want Elias to follow the clues on the map and see if they can get answers for what happened to the two kidnapped princes.  As Elias starts to follow the clues, unexpected answers to the clues lead to more questions.  There are also those who don’t want Elias to find the answers to what happened eighteen years ago.  

I enjoyed the mystery and twists throughout this book.  I loved Elias, Ulises and Mercedes and the setting of the novel.  There were times when the action would slow down with details, but I enjoyed the overall book so much I didn't care and I can’t wait to read more from this series.
