What Reviewers say about Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones.
While the character development is amazing, it wouldn’t make any sense without an equally compelling backdrop. From the backcountry in Arkansas to the rarefied air of the Scottish relatives in their castle, one gets the impression that Zoraida is in way over her head. I could almost feel the warmth of the Arkansas countryside in contrast to the damp, dank, and dismal atmosphere in the Scottish castle. The contrasts in the two settings really help set the tone for the task that Zoraida and Zhu are undertaking.
I found myself captivated by Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones.
Zoraida’s sassy personality and her strong friendship (better described as a sisterhood) with Zhu drew me in from the start and made me like her right from the beginning. While the mystery and intrigue shrouding all the inhabitants of the Logan’s castle keeps the reader wondering about all of them throughout the entire book, Zoraida and Zhu’s bond is solid and enduring. The plot is fast-paced and lively enough to inspire the suspension of belief required to make the novel work.
Ms. DuBois paints magic as natural and logical, dark and light. Experience and training, of which Zoraida has the least, determine how well a person can wield its power. I do love it when the heroine has a challenge. . . . Like I said, in Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones, you will find magic, mystery, wisdom, history, whiskey, tea and a cat – all sharing the path with twists, turns and anticipation. I have to have the next book in the series now!

I love books about witches, old castles, and Scotland so all three rolled up into one…. It was a no-brainer. I just had to read “Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones” and you should too. . . .
. . . .For the ending, well, imagine the end of first Lord of the Rings movie. You know, the scene with Frodo and Sam were looking out over the land that lain between them and Mount Doom. Well, “Zoraida Grey and the Family Stones” ending gave me the same impression the LOTR ending did. The scene just stopped and you just know when part 2 picks up, something major is on the horizon, and you can’t wait to see it unfold.
I had a hard time deciding what I liked most about this read: the zany, endearing and sometimes fearsome characters; the atmosphere, thick as a Scottish stranglehold mist; the deep vortex of dark magic that swirls around every conversation and description or the sheer beauty of the writing that, in some spots, was so good I paused to read a line a second time, just so I could relish it all over again.
The writer keeps you guessing between two gorgeous male Scottish witches as to who’s the bad ‘un (and I’m not telling) just as she makes you squirm on Zoraida’s behalf from time to time. Does Zoraida, a babe in the woods compared to her magically-endowed Scottish relations, have the power she’s going to need to survive Castle Logan, save her best friend and accomplish Granny’s mission? And just what is Granny’s real mission after all?
If you enjoy stories full of black humor with an intelligent plot, this is for you. I loved every word and even though this story stands very nicely on its own, I hope the next book in the series makes a speedy appearance ‘cause I’m hanging off a cliff and I absolutely need to read on!
This book was filled with secrets, surprises, magic and the most amazing characters. Zoraida and Zhu managed to make me laugh throughout this book because of their uniqueness. What happens with the Crystal and whether Zoraida is successful in returning it to Granny and whether she and Zhu get out of the castle unscathed is something you will have to read for yourself and I guarantee you won’t be sorry.
