Masters of the historical mystery, authors Michael Jecks, Susanna Gregory, Bernard Knight, Ian Morson, Philip Gooden, Simon Beaufort, and C.J. Sansom band together as The Medieval Murderers to craft this thrilling tale. In 1067 Greenland, a strange stone falls from the sky. Over the next 600 years, violence and death follow whoever possesses it, including crusading knights, a dying King Henry III, and a troupe of His Majesty King James I’s players.

It didn't keep me listening...

I liked this book, but it felt to me like a preview - or sample - of other series strung together. So, I found myself listening to the chapters more like short stories. I like historical mysteries and I was intrigued by the mystery of the stone. The writers are all proficient and the presentation was good. But I think this book is right for someone looking more for the short story genre, than a fully developed novel. In fact, some of these writers are new to me and I will be checking out their other work which is more developed.

Great Reading by Paul Matthews

Which scene was your favorite?

Openning and closing.

Any additional comments?

Great reading that I really enjoyed, but mediocre stories. Too much filler. I expected better from the authors. I will find other books read by Paul Matthews. Well done.

Not as absorbing as the summary would suggest

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Each story could be shorter and snappier

Would you recommend The Sacred Stone to your friends? Why or why not?

Not compared to all the great books available on Audible

Have you listened to any of Paul Matthews’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Did The Sacred Stone inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

There was a predictability about all the stories, and a lack of pace in the action which means that it somehow fails to really catch the imagination.

a series of parts

I purchased this because of enjoying the Shardlake stories by CJ Sanson. I found this more a collection of short stories along a single theme and time line and as a result enjoyed some parts more than others as I could reasonably expected given the different styles present. I could have though didn’t skipped a part I didn’t enjoy as the separate stories stand well alone. Overall if you like historic mystery you will enjoy this though some parts more than others.
