Publisher's Summary

Now that George Chapman has upset the fragile truce between the warring statues of London, he has been drawn into a war that will test his mettle. He and Edie, a glint who can see the past, may have succeeded in their quest to find the Stoneheart, but their journey is far from over. Edie and the Gunner, a statue of a World War I soldier, have been captured by the Walker, and it's up to George to save them. But first he must deal with the three strange veins made of marble, bronze, and stone that have begun to grow out of his hand and curl around his wrist. Legend has it that unless he successfully completes three challenges, the veins will continue up his forearm and eventually pierce through his heart.
As George struggles to find the strength to face the choice he has made, to take the Hard Way, he is determined to use his power for good - even as others wish to harness it for its great potential for evil.

This is the second title in the series (unfortunately, as of right now Audible doesn't have the first book, Stoneheart) but you don't have to have read the first book to understand what's going on. Mind you it's better to have read the first one, just not necessary. Jim Dale does his usual fantastic job as Narrator and the story is fast paced and exciting. I found myself wanting to go to London to see the world Fletcher describes! I was so enchanted with this story that I purchased both the audio and hardback versions of both books and am eagerly awaiting the release of the third.

Great Story Comes to life with Jim Dale

For those like myself who have yurned for a book with the same type of great writing as we experienced with HP well HERE IT IS. WOW - I am not a writer (OBVIOUSLY) but let me tell you this was one enjoyable story and listening to the talented Mr. Dale once again was music to my ears.

I ordered the first in the series since it is not available here and will anxiously await the final installment!!!!
