"Charging like a runaway semitrailer on a downhill grade and spanning the era from Haight-Ashbury's Summer of Love into the darkness of 1980s Manhattan, Stone Junction is a wise and wildly imaginative novel about Daniel Pearse, an orphaned child who is taken under the wings of the AMO -- the Alliance of Magicians and Outlaws. An assortment of sages sharpen Daniel's wide-eyed outlook until he has the concentration of a card shark Zeta master, via apprenticeships in meditation, safecracking, poker, and the art of walking through walls. Wizards are made, not born, and this unconventional education sets Daniel on the trail of mysteries ancient and modern.A strange, six-pound diamond sphere held by the U.S. government in a New Mexico vault, rumored to be the Philosopher's Stone or the Holy Grail, becomes the AMO's obsession. In time, Daniel perfects his powers and heads off to steal the magic stone, and what happens changes his life forever.

Wow! What a strange but very intriguing book! Hard to pinpoint what genre it is, or even what it is about.
Leading thread is the life of Daniel, from day one till the story ends. The other characters circle around him, all adding a part to the story and a piece to the puzzle that Daniel is. It took me long to read the book (and I'm happy about it), because I do not have a lot of spare time to read.

As part of a trade, this book is now on its way to Oedde.
Thank you so much for your patience! I'm sorry that it took me much longer than I expected.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did, although it was a strange one. Happy BookCrossing!

Going through some bookcrossing stuff, I found this book and saw that I hadn't journaled it before - wow, I'm so sorry, Boekentrol! You were so kind to trade it with me, and I feel really bad about keeping you in the dark about where it is for so long. I can only say that I probably forgot to journal it because of some stuff going on at the time when I received it.
I will definitely let you know when I'll get around to reading it.

I wish I had read this but now I have decided to part ways with it: I'm downsizing my bookshelf and releasing this and other books at the cozy open library in Prinz-Georg-Garten. May other readers find and appreciate Stone Junction!
