Sophie has always preferred champagne and bonbons to village life. When her dearest friend Henri proposes and insists that life as a baker's wife will be enough, she admits her desire for more. Looking for an adventure, she stumbles upon a fortune teller who predicts her death and reveals the truth about her origins. Desperate for answers, Sophie flees the village.
In the middle of a mountain she meets Tristan, a Gem Tracker on the hunt for a precious stone that could save the country of Gemmes. Together they search for clues, and soon the pursuit becomes not just about the treasure but also about answers to life and love. It turns into a race against time as Sophie and Tristan learn they aren't the only ones looking for the last magical jewel.
What no one realizes is that the treasure they seek may be right in front of them. X marks the spot.

A really good and fun fantasy book
Quite a sweet story. Almost like turning Lord of the Rings into a fairytale. Great characters who have personal journeys which are interesting and all add up to a great story.
I like the way that Sophie develops. She's hard to like to begin with but you see that everything is stacked against her and you begin to enjoy her journey into a better personal place.
Very good narration. I think that she opened up Sophie for me and there's a dreamlike quality to the narration that makes this a great fantasy book to listen to.
I'd rather not give anything away as this is a story that you should listen too or read. I think that the characters within it a good, the story itself is a brilliant journey that I really enjoyed.
