Short-Story Book Review: A Curse of Stone and Moonlight by Ashley Maker


Sixteen-year-old Adele never asked for immortality.
Cursed to become a marble statue in a private art gallery, Adele is at the mercy of a wicked sorcerer’s quest for revenge and something even more sinister. With her freedom hanging in the balance, she must decide whether to succumb to Wilmont’s repulsive wishes or remain frozen as just another piece of art in a chilling collection.
The only thing keeping her from going mad is a promise to her mother and curiosity about the other statues in the gallery, especially the one taking the likeness of Wilmont’s tragically lost son. Adele cannot help but wonder if he is human like her, imprisoned beneath marble skin. She vows to find out the truth and escape before it’s too late and she’s trapped forever.
