Melting Stones

by Tamora Pierce

This Title No Longer Available - Please Do Not Order

New York Times Bestselling Author Tamora Pierce has done something unprecedented for an author of her stature—written the newest novel in her Circle of Magic universe to go directly to audio. There will be no print version for at least a year!

It’s the story of Evvy, the young stone mage introduced in Pierce’s bestselling Street Magic, who accompanies her guardian Rosethorn on a mission to Starns Island to study a mysterious plant die-off. with her magic—and the help of Luvo, one of Tamora Pierce’s most original creations—the girl discovers a threat far greater than anyone could have imagined. Preventing disaster may cost Evvy her life. Even more frightening, from her point of view, it may require her to melt her own hard heart, and open herself to human contact.

"MELTING STONES was chosen by AudioFile Magazine as one of 2008's Best Audiobooks for Children Ages 8 and Up."
    — AudioFile
"The audio edition of this work is truly amazing. Like all Full Cast Audio works, each voice in the work is done by a different actor. This makes Melting Stones more like listening to a play rather than having a book read out loud."
    — SFRevue - Colleen Cahill
"The audiobook is done in the distinctive Full Cast Audio style - it’s unabridged, but read by a full cast. I fear sounding like a parrot, but every review I write of a Full Cast Audio audiobook needs to convey the absolute quality of the audio experience that you get with one of these books. Full Cast Audio consistently enhances the text they are performing. Their audiobooks are unique, and a joy to hear. Melting Stones is no exception. Grace Kelly performs Evvy, and therefore has the main narrating duties, since the book is told from Evvy’s point of view. Tamora Pierce wrote her much to work with, and she work with it she does. She offers a captivating and believable performance as the plucky young stone mage. Surrounding her is a large cast that without exception performs well. Seamless editing makes it all work together, making it another excellent piece of work from Full Cast Audio. "
    — SFFAudio - Scott Danielson    Read entire review…
"Almost as prolific as she is popular, Pierce bucks convention and brings this novel to audio a year in advance of its hardcover publication. Once a writer for radio theater, Pierce tailors the narrative to audio, which is evident in the enhanced use of dialogue to convey plot and the streamlined descriptions. ... Production values are consistently high: carefully integrated original music raises the emotional stakes, and a skilled cast delivers full-bodied performances, even making good on lines like 'his voice was as hard as diamonds, and as soft as chalk.'"
    — Publisher's Weekly
"This audiobook original, released well before the print version, will please the author's legions of fans. ... [narrator] Kelly delivers a strong performance, and the Full Cast voices align well with their characters. Listeners will especially enjoy the author's participation."
