Publisher's Summary

Mercenary. Murderer. Monster. He has been called many names in his time.
Built for war and nothing else, he has witnessed every shade of violence humans know, and he has wrought his own masterpieces with their colors. He cared once, perhaps, but far too long ago. He is bound to his task, dead to the chaos he wreaks for his masters.
Now, he has a new master to serve and a new war to endure. In the far reaches of the Realm, Hartlund tears itself in two over coin and crown. This time he will fight for a boy king and a general bent on victory.
Beneath it all, he longs for change. For something to surprise him. For an end to this cycle of warfare.
Every fighter faces his final fight. Even one made of stone.
The Heart of Stone - the brand new standalone from UK fantasy author Ben Galley - is now available in audiobook format, read by by Adam Stubbs. Find out more about The Heart of Stone at www.bengalley.com/heart-of-stone.

One of my favorite things to do after reading a book I loved, is finding it in audio. Ben Galley is a true keyboard wizard, and Adam Stubbs absolutely dazzled us with his silver tounge sorcery! The action never ceases to keep pulling you past the "just one more chapter" phase, and before you know it, it's 3 a.m. FYI you should definitely re-re-read, or listen to, this fictional masterpiece!

A writing style not to my tastes.

This book looked good and maybe it is. I mean a book about a golem, where is the bad part? Well for me it was about the pacing and the POVs.

I went into this book wanting an interesting look at a fantasy world through the eyes of a golem. While that is present there are a bunch of side characters and stories that I just wasn't interested in. I understand that the author was trying to make a big story and I might've enjoyed that except for the pacing.

The pacing in this book is very like that of THE RED KNIGHT, a book I also disliked. The POVs and action move quickly and almost with too much fluidity. Right when I would feel comfortable with a set of characters or part of a story I'd realize that I was already with a new set of characters and in a new part of the story without ever noticing. I got about a quarter of they way through when I realized that I had no idea what was going on or what character I was currently following. So I started from the beginning and didn't make it back to where I'd left off. I mean, I'm working on developing pre-pre-diabetes. I don't have time to re-re-read things that just aren't worth it.

So my verdict is that if you enjoyed the writing style of THE RED KNIGHT or easily followed any book in MALAZAN BOOK OF THE FALLEN then this book might be worth a spin. But if you're like me and you read for fun and not for work:
