RUNE is an epic journey about transforming the darkness within so that we can achieve true peace in the world around us.
Ben Greenfield, New York Times Bestselling Author of Beyond Training
Within just a few moments of beginning to read RUNE, I was immediately drawn into the adventurous, magical world that Jamison Stone has created - my heartbeat pulsed, my breath grew shallow, my fingers trembled as I leap from page to page - and this was all in merely the first chapter! Stone has indeed hit it out of the ballpark with this book, and you will not want to put it down. An epic read indeed.
Tal M. Klein, author of The Punch Escrow
Jamison Stone presents us with a fresh, superbly crafted fantasy epic that conquers both world and character building. RUNE is tantalizing to the imagination, and invigorating for the soul.
Stuart Calvin Lord
Stone writes beautifully. The characters of RUNE are alive and vibrant; the world in which they dwell is both exciting and rich; and the story which propels it all is not only engaging, but profoundly deep. Well done, sir!
D. L. Wainright, author of The Hollow Sun and Fractured Masks
Stone is a masterful worldbuilder, and I felt like I was truly stepping onto Terra from the moment I started reading. There is a depth and complexity to the world and characters that breathes life into the narrative itself. Reading Rune of the Apprentice was a fun and magical adventure that left me thinking about the world and its characters long after I put the book down.
Kyle T. Cowan
Rune is a dense, but well written novel. I especially enjoyed the characters and historical descriptions of the world. Jamison Stone vividly tells a story that has mass appeal and sequel potential. I recommend this book if you like high fantasy or science fiction. Very well done.

Through beautiful prose, Stone inspires the minds of our youth to choose a path which restores peace. RUNE reminds us that we are not strangers, but instead, friends, peacemakers, and most importantly, need to dedicate our lives to protecting those who have lost so much due to cruelty and injustice.
Erik A. Lenderman, author of Principles of Practical Psychology: A Brief Review of Philosophy, Psychology, and Neuroscience for Self-Inquiry and Self-Regulation
Jamison Stone's writing style is clear, engaging, and highly recommended! In just the first chapter alone, Rune of the Apprentice will provide immediate immersion into a mystical and mysterious world which will keep you coming back for more.
Dave Barrett, author of It's All Fun and Games
An engaging story filled with magic, swordplay, and even pirates! The world that Stone has imagined is vast, the political webs complex, and the interaction between the gods, magic, and men is well thought out and well described. Easy five stars.
Rick Heinz, author of The Seventh Age: Dawn
