    1 thought on “The Stonegate Sword”

    1. The Stonegate Sword is an action/adventure fantasy novel with an original setting. It’s about the future, but not the usual kind of dystopian. It’s medieval, but with the flair of technology and machinery that we know today. It’s a unique mix of ideas that I haven’t seen anywhere yet, and it’s just right for this story.The main character goes through a transformation from a bookworm to a warrior, and it’s not just about knowing how to use a sword, but about learning more about himsel [...]

    2. As the author, I naturally am going to give a good rating for the book.Readers might be interested in knowing that the book was an award-winning finalist in the 2015 International Book Awards.

    3. It is not often that I can describe a full-length book in a single word. Throughout my entire adventure within the Stonegate Sword’s digital pages (I read it as an eBook), the one word that continually resounded in my brain was “charming.” This is simply one of the most enchanting tales that I have read in a very long time. It brings me back to books like FINGAL’S QUEST, RED HUGH PRINCE OF DONEGAL, and THE HITTITE WARRIOR which is one of the highest compliments I can pay to a book. But w [...]

    4. I am not a big fantasy fan but I have enjoyed the Stonegate Sword very much. First of all, it was beautifully written. The author has a wonderful writing style, with every word pulling you into the story. The characters are three-dimensional, relatable and realistic. And finally, I enjoyed it because I was fascinated by the premise. The novel is set in the future when our civilisation is nothing but a distant memory. There is nothing left but ruins of old buildings and roads. Our knowledge is lo [...]

    5. This book has a very original mix of genres. At first, it absolutely feels like medieval historical fiction. Then there are references to “The Old Empire” and scenes with fallen cities and you realize that this is actually a post-apocalyptic/dystopian future world. That made me think, “Huh, interesting,” because I’ve never seen that before. The characters of Philip, Don, Robert, etc. are pretty likeable. Don, as the main character, is given special attention and has the most fleshed ou [...]

    6. As an adventure story on an epic scale, I enjoyed reading The Stonegate Sword by Harry James Fox. I liked the skill he showed in his attention to detail in describing landscapes, buildings and people, as much as to the weather and food on the plate. His is an unusual, curious story. Its title made me think it was going to be an adventure about knights and magical beings in a Medieval fantasy land. Instead, it proved to be very much an adventurous tale, set in a North American landscape, familiar [...]

    7. This was a great book. It's pretty clear that the author knows something about horses, the Rockies, and story-telling. The idea of a future dark age is unusual, but it worked well for me. I look forward to the second book. In fact, I have started it already.

    8. The Stonegate Sword is a tale of a redemption, of the rise of our hero, Donald, who later falls, and must spend the rest of the story rising above the shame of that fall. With elements of war and romance, Fox weaves a fine tale of gains and losses, gently guided by undertones of faith that, despite the Biblical quotes that grace the title of each chapter, never come across as beating the reader over the head. The Christian themes reminded me a lot of "The Book of Eli," where faith is the driving [...]

    9. I was greatly surprised by this book. Due to the cover I was expecting a medieval romance, but was pleasantly amazed to discover a story that appeared to be set in the future, but had medieval traits. It was far removed from a romance as well. It was a story about learning. Learning your own strengths and beliefs. Helping and supporting others. The stories of Donald and Philip do come together eventually, although I found that Philips story was a little vague at times and I still not sure of its [...]

    10. This was a very different book. I like the idea very much. I liked the Christian-oriented thriller in the pages. People in this book retreated to a medieval mindset and travel by horses and wagons instead of what we use today cars, planes, and trains. I was captivated through out this book. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

    11. This very enjoyable book is challenging to categorize [as many of the new christian books are these days]. It is definitely Christian. It is a futuristic medieval-style of fantasy which is neither apocalyptic nor dystopian, yet American society has been destroyed in an un-defined disaster. As Mr. Fox says in the Afterword:"The tale of Stonegate takes place a bit more than a century in the future after the collapse of civilization in North America."Now I could quibble about how far things could h [...]

    12. This was a gem of a book, from the beautiful, almost poetic, writing to the brilliantly crafted battle scenes. I followed Dom's physical and emotional journey with interest. Like other reviewers have said, this is not your usual Dystopian novel. Set in the future where there is only stories of the 'ancients' and little more than ruins to show that our time ever existed, this is a fantastic novel that draws you in and keeps you entertained until the end but with a medieval twist. The love story b [...]

    13. “If you want peace, prepare for war.”This story alternates through the perspectives of Philip, a young farm boy arriving home from school to witness his parents being assaulted by corrupt tax collectors, then flips to the story of Donald Fisher, a survivor of an ambush who is now being accused of a crime he didn’t commit. Both men find themselves in crippling situations at the mercy of the law.At some point, the alternating perspectives stop and only focus on Don. (The reader almost seems [...]

    14. Great book! I really enjoyed reading this truly epic tale!I loved the entire setting, the battle between good and evil taking place sometime in the future in a post-apocalyptic North America. The author is wonderful at setting a scene and his use of descriptive language transports the reader to where the action is taking place.Donald is the hero of the story and like many good heroes he is flawed, but we overlook these flaws or rather we accept them because of his overwhelming desire to do good. [...]

    15. This is not my normal genre to read, but I can honestly say that The Stonegate Sword drew me in from the moment I started reading. Fox definitely has a way with words and his descriptions are almost poetic. The story is set in the future, after the world crumbles down. Fox was extremely well in developing both the characters and the plot. The story contains something for just about everyone: engaging battles using medieval weapons, historical fiction, and a little bit of romance to make things i [...]

    16. “The Stonegate Sword” by Harry James Fox is one great example of a good fantasy book. I first fell in love with this specific type of fantasy when I read Tolkien. Don’t get me wrong the two books are far from similar. Fox’s book is amazing in the way it mingles together the ways people had lived in the Middle Ages and the unforeseen future. This book has everything I wanted to find inside: it has love, adventure, personal struggle and happy moments and bitter tears. It’s a book that ca [...]

    17. I was greatly surprised by this book. Due to the cover I was expecting a medieval romance, but was pleasantly amazed to discover a story that appeared to be set in the future, but had medieval traits. It was far removed from a romance as well. It was a story about learning. Learning your own strengths and beliefs. Helping and supporting others.

    18. Thank you to and Mr Fox for this signed copy which I won on a giveaway. I was pleasantly surprised by this bookI'm not a dystopian fanbut this book isn't "another" world tale. It's our world.but, with a great twist. For those who romanticize about living back in the days whenis is a great read. In fact I hated having to leave it at home while on an overseas holiday(weight restrictions didn't allow my copy to make the trip with me)but I made short work of it when I was home again. Loved this bo [...]

    19. The medieval times have returned as the world rebuilds itself, in this wonderful post-apocalyptic Christian-military adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and loved being a part of this world. Harry James Fox provides beautifully detailed descriptions of the settings and characters, as he builds our hero Don from a soft and simple man of knowledge and learning, to a courageous battle-hardened war hero. I loved every step through his trials and heartache as he grew into a man, respected and [...]

    20. Religious books aren't usually my cup of tea, but to my surprise I really enjoyed this novel. The religious aspects of the novel weren't in your face, so the sculptures and messages didn't get in the way of the story. The writing style of the author is also enjoyable although, all the detail did really add to the length of the book. The unique twist on midevil times set in the future was something else that was really appreciated.

    21. An instant classic and timeless adventure in a future world where you will be brought on an intense journey. Humans have reverted to archaic ways and the fight for survival is prevalent. The writing is clear, crisp, and perfect for an adventure tale. Emotions are raw and passionate in this highly enjoyable read for all ages. Recommended!

    22. The Stonegate Sword would not be my typical reading choice but the blurb grabbed my attention and I thought I would try something new and I'm glad I did.The story is set in the future where civilisation has reverted to a more medieval setting as evidenced in their lack of technology and feudal society. There is a subtle Christian theme running through the book. But it is essentially a coming of age story as Donald, a young man more accustomed to book learning, is thrust upon a battle strewn path [...]

    23. I admit, I judged the book by it's cover - thinking it was going to be maybe a bit awkward (just look at her arm!) run of the mill questy style romance, probably self-published, etc.However! The characters are varied and well developed, the prose is lyrical and descriptive, and the story line involved and well played out - not giving us all the info up front but teasing us pieces to fit together the subtleties of the back story and plot.It does follow a romance quest line, but it's so much more. [...]

    24. What would happen if modern civilization crumbles and the world that we know is cast back to surviving in a world similar to medieval times? The Stonegate Sword is a mesmerising, thought-provoking and well-crafted read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was immediately struck by the beautiful poetic writing that flows from page to page. The phrase, ‘painting a picture with words,’ springs to mind. I could see the countryside, see the ‘spears with keen-edged points flashing in the hard afternoon [...]

    25. The Stonegate Sword is faithful to its title. The story goes around sword battles and good versus evil. The idea of a kind of mystical savior is also there in a very beautiful poem. (The author did that very well) and it made me wait for a kind of revelation that never came. I'm sorry to say The Stonegate Sword caught me by surprise. It wasn't what I was waiting for and it's not good. Please, don't get me wrong. I'm not saying the book isn't good, I'm saying that it broke my expectations and it [...]

    26. A Magnificent ReadThe Stonegate Sword is a great book to read and Harry James Fox’s descriptions of all the characters and battles are phenomenal. The fast moving plot, keep the pages turning. You are led to believe that it is medieval times but this is not the case!Donald of Fisher, the main character, is a peaceful man of learning. To remain in Stonegate, he has to receive battle training. A large dark force from the east threatens to invade and it takes all of Don’s wits and nerves to pro [...]

    27. It’s wartime and Donald of Fisher is a loner and outsider. He is looking for Rachel, a girl who has been taken by the Raiders-minions of the Prophet. The Prophet's militaries are equipped with arms and brutal. Being that the rough country is filled with adversaries makes it very difficult for Donald to find Rachel. Donald has to face the fact there is a chance he will become just another victim, but even so, there is a chance he will bring about the assured promise in the prophecy. Filled with [...]

    28. This is an interesting book which kind of takes away the normal assumption that as time progresses man progresses and therefore, technology progresses. The story is set in the future, however man has gone back to the days of the bows and arrows. From here on, it is an interesting and gripping story of good winning over evil and how the most unexpected becomes the most celebrated. Kudos to Mr. Harry James Fox for creating a new world with a new world order and a new hero!

    29. A fantastic world, post apocalyptic and very imaginative. An adventure set against a background of superstition and heroism. Epic tale from someone who knows their weapons and fighting strategy. The characters engage and towards the end I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.
