The statues and gargoyles of London continue their epic battle as young George Chapman struggles to save his friends and fulfill his destiny.

Format: 8 CDs, Unabridged

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 face the choice he has made, he is determined to use his power for good, even as others wish to harness it for evil.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandee | 2/11/2014

    " I debated giving this 2 stars. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Jim Dale who did an amazing job, but I found myself hoping for the book to just finally get over with. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 2/10/2014

    " This was a good continuance of the first one. If I had had more time to just sit and read I would have finished it much faster. It didn't have any boring chapters of waiting for things to happen, as every character was in an active story the whole book. I'm looking forward to the third book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gayle | 1/1/2014

    " An exciting second book in this series -- I love the characters and their fierce determination to help each other. I imagine the statues featured in the story actually exist throughout London -- it would be cool to see them in person! Jim Dale is a fabulous narrator as always -- he creates such unique voices for the different characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/30/2013

    " So this was violent and not for young readers. but I thought the story line progressed well despite the split story from each of the main characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Yougo | 12/26/2013

    " Following quickly on the heels of Stoneheart, this sequel was a great follow-up in what has been a great series. It was with aprehension that I started the first book in the series, but it progressed quickly and I was excited to start this volume and had a difficult time putting it down. The story moves well, and has enough twists and turns that it keeps it interesting. A very enjoyable read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 11/25/2013

    " This is labeled 'juvenile'...not even young adult. Seems awfully complicated and violent for kids to me. Hmmm. It's definitely a good trilogy though. I recommend the audio version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 11/25/2013

    " Great second book in series. Still keeps interest throughout and explores characters more deeply. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/24/2013

    " Same as previous volume in series - enjoyably read by Jim Dale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cole Reece | 10/23/2013

    " In this book, the protagonist george must fight three duels or else he dies. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Scott | 10/15/2013

    " Too much profanity for my taste. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 10/4/2013

    " This book, the second in a series, was just as wonderful as the first. The author has a vivid imagination and storytelling skills to match. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha97 Stowell | 7/5/2013

    " I liked the second better than the first. The first was a bit slow for my taste. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 5/7/2013

    " I listened to this one, as always Jim Dale is a fabulous narrator. The story is as fast paced as the first in the trilogy. Stone statues come to life in a different London that most people know. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anthony Bonventre | 4/4/2013

    " This sequel blows the first out of the water the plot makes more sense the action scenes are better and its just a better book. And it ends in a way that makes you come back ready for the third. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 1/27/2013

    " Can't wait to listen to book #3. Jim Dale as narrator in the book-on-tape makes this spectacular. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 11/4/2012

    " Great continuation of the story. The use of statues coming to life in modern day London is interesting. Ironhand keeps your attention, but again a little too dark and too much strong language in my opinion for kids. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 7/12/2012

    " I really didn't care for this one as much. The world and the magic are great. It's the bad guy, he was a little to creepy for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 7/2/2012

    " This book will intrigue teens who like fantasy mixed with a bit of mystery. 6th-8th would like this. Boys will like the male protagonist who has to get through many fixes, the fighting-it gets a little gruesome, and girls will like a feisty, witty female protagonist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 **Gracie** | 6/22/2012

    " I like this book so far its just as good as the first... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roshni | 7/11/2011

    " Interesting idea with statues coming to life and a two-sided battle beginning. Characters are not interesting or unique enough "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 6/13/2011

    " Liked it even better than the first! The growth George and Edie experience through all their trials is so great to see and I love the returning characters -- especially the gunner! "

    " It was a bit scary, and the story was a BIT better than the 1st but still I like the first book more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/4/2010

    " Entertaining, but not brilliant. The audiobook is probably better. But then, most things are better with Jim Dale. "
