The Rune Chronicles, Book I

Rune of the Apprentice

In a world where magic, technology, and nature have merged,
the few who can control Runes hold dominance over all of
creation. All believe that Aleksi, a sixteen-year-old orphan, was blessed to be born with a Rune embedded in his palm, but that’s only because they don’t know the truth—Aleksi’s Rune is so powerful it’s killing him. Cursed with ultimate power at the cost of one’s own humanity—this is the path of an Apprentice. Stone’s colossal blend of anticipation, magic, and adrenaline will make lovers of huge worlds and heroic characters feel right at home. Readers will be reminded of the creative and epic tone of Brandon Sanderson, with a mythical foundation nostalgic of Tolkien.
