Michael Black's journey started after the murder of his parents(Somnibus Book I) and the inheritance of a small powerful stone, a trace, that would change his life. Now Michael is searching for the six traces so he can unravel the mystery of the stones and why they are so important to the Somnibus.

Author McGray returns to the world of the Somnibus,mysterious creatures that invade humans controlling their thoughts and actions.

The author rachets up the stakes for the protagonist Michael in Book II. Now Michael must save his newest love interest, Becca, along with keeping the Somnibus from acquiring all six stones and invading earth.

The pace of 'The Six stones' feels frantic at times compared to Book I, but the action dictates the pace and while I'd have appreciated it being slower; I can't complain.

Author McGray created a nasty antagonist in the Somnibus and I'd love to see a story focused on their origins, digging deeper into the lore of the ghastly creatures.

Overall Book II: The Six Stones is a great read and well worth your time.
