What it is: The Stone Seekers tells the story of an expert woodsman and a savage warrior united in an uneasy alliance as they try to recover the magical Wellstone, an enchanted gem that locates clean water in a poisoned world where the very land opposes its human interlopers. During their journey they learn respect for one another as they are challenged by land and animals alike in their efforts to come to grips with the thieves, minions of a mythical entity that would relish seeing the human settlement wither and die.
What they're saying: The Stone Seekers is fairly new to Amazon, and only has one review so far, but it is glowing:
"Can there be anything new in epic fantasy? Tolkien casts an enormous shadow. Well, the answer is: yes! Jack Tyler has given us a new world. One that is refreshingly different. There are no orcs, or dwarves, or elves here. But you won't miss them. Not at all. Jeval and Galena must retrieve the Wellstone or their people will die. However, once outside the Wall, survival is not an easy matter under the best of circumstances. And Rankaya is going to make sure there are no best circumstances. She wants the Wellstone all to herself. And Tyler goes on to people his book with a host of intriguing characters and wave after wave of evil doers. But most of all, these are characters we grow to love, or hate as the case may be. And that is what draws you in, as you read The Stone Seekers. What's more, Tyler is an accomplished storyteller. He gives you a yarn worth reading. A story filled with excitement, testing, and tenderness. Don't pass this one by. Seriously. You'll regret it."

Like my other books, The Stone Seekers is permanently on sale on Amazon for 99¢. The paperback version is quite a bit pricier, but if that's your thing, it's priced as low as Amazon allows. The Stone Seekers is available on my author's page
