House of Stone by Vaughn R. Dermont

One of the better urban fantasy books I've read in awhile the fact it's m/m is just icing on the cake. I like the world building, and the idea of fairies in this story. It's a slightly different take on things, without being too silly or different for the sake of being different.


The characters are complex, and well developed. I liked seeing how Richard developed, and grew over the course of the story. It's nice to read something where the main character manages to learn, and mature over the course of the story especially when it's almost in spite of themselves. The child character felt like a child, and wasn't too wise beyond her years no matter what her powers were. I enjoyed the variety of secondary characters as well. They were a diverse bunch, and added quite a bit to the story.


The plot is nicely convoluted, and I liked following the twists, and turns it took. It's refreshing reading a story that doesn't go exactly as expected. I'm really looking forward to reading more. I stayed up passed my bedtime to finish this one. It made for a hard morning, but I don’t regret it.
