Evvy, the fierce young stone mage introduced in Street Magic, has accompanied her guardian, Rosethorn, on a mission to study a mysterious plant die-off. With the help of Luvo, who is the living heart of a mountain, Evvy discovers the real source of the threat, which is far greater than anyone had imagined. Preventing a natural disaster may cost Evvy her life. Even more frightening, doing so may require her to melt her own heart of stone...and to open herself to human contact.

Written by Tamora Pierce specifically for the voices of Full Cast Audio, Melting Stones is an unprecedented publishing event: the first time a major novel from a best-selling author has made its debut on audio a full year ahead of the print version! Download and start listening now!

    " Not the best of Pierce. I read someone else's review who thought that when an author writes a script, it comes across differently when it's read as a book. I would have to agree with this. I only read this once - which is unusual for me (I normally read her new books at least twice, back to back, and then reread them again later). It didn't seem to work as well. Sorry, I'm not sure how to explain it, so I'm sure my review isn't very helpful. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karla | 1/31/2014

    " I love Tamora Pierce, but this book was just disappointing. I couldn't get into the story with all the volcano spirits thing. Maybe you need to read a previous book to know the characters, but I thought they weren't very interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adrienne | 1/11/2014

    " While it could have contained more plot-wise, Melting Stones was well written. I've always loved Tamora Pierce's Circle of Magic series because of the unique magic system found within, and it's interesting to watch it grow. I really wonder about Evvy's time in Gyongxe though, as it's mentioned several times throughout the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carmel Clavin | 1/11/2014

    " Evvy is a whiner. It ruins the whole story to be unsympathetic to the narrator. I had high hopes for this book sadly. "

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

    " Good read, compelling and keeps you right in it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather Rose | 12/28/2013

    " This book is an easy read that drew me in quickly even without reading any precursor books by Tamora Pierce. Highly recommended for all ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 12/5/2013

    " Full Cast Audio does an awesome job on this audiobook. Good story that fits in with the Circle of Magic stories. We get more about Evvy in this book. Nice fast paced adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 The Smiths | 10/29/2013

    " I enjoyed listening to this audiobook even though I hadn't read others in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cinda | 10/22/2013

    " I love these Circle of Magic books. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to bring Briar onstage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mallory | 10/12/2013

    " Weird cuz it was in first person, and i got a bit tired of all the rock descriptions, but never the less exciting, and a quick easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa | 10/12/2013

    " I enjoyed this character and her experience working with stones & rocks. At times her travels in and with volcanic rocks did get a little tedious, but that didn't detract from the overall story. Evvy learns to be a builder and not a destroyer which was gratifying, but not surprising actually. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lila | 9/25/2013

    " More YA fantasy to recommend to young readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 foo4luv | 8/24/2013

    " Evy returns! This is a great follow-up to Street Magic, but can be read alone. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 5/27/2013

    " Pierce's books are always well-written and interesting, but I felt this one was much less gripping than her others have been. Both the plot and the character development could have been better. That being said, if I hadn't known the author, I probably would have been more impressed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Selma de Oliveira | 2/6/2013

    " This is a great book to learn about volcanos. The melting stones are cute "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 11/15/2012

    " Definitely not Pierce's best work, but a must for her die-hard fan. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle | 6/17/2012

    " This lacked any sort of suspense you can usually get in Pierce books. Perhaps I just find the character of Evvy less interesting than the "others" of the Circle, but I was just not all that intrigued by the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 2/10/2012

    " I really wanted to like this book... The end was the best part. Even though Evvy was rebellious and did exactly what she was told to not, she finally started thinking of others. And that is all I have to say on this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathy Sebesta | 11/14/2011

    " Way too much angst, and while I love to read about precocious teens, this goes way too far beyond. Read only if you're committed to the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 8/1/2011

    " Great sequel to the last one. I now want to re-read the entire set. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendall | 7/10/2011

    " it is a really good book.although it is sometimes slow,it's coming along really well "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shannon | 4/5/2011

    " Not as enjoyable as the rest of the Circle of Magic, but not bad, either. Full Cast Audio was absolutely brilliant, as always =) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 1/29/2011

    " Honestly kind of bored with this one. Kept waiting, and waiting, and waiting for something to happen. Not sure if anything ever did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joshua | 12/21/2010

    " I like Tamora Pierce very much but this left me cold... maybe being a sequel? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martha | 11/15/2010

    " My daughter gave me this to read and it was really good. I will have to find the first book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 June | 11/14/2010

    " Part of the Winding Circle series. Rosethorn is back, with a feisty, new, stone mage character, Evvy and an interesting character, Luvo, the heart of a mountain. Overcoming horrendous past, dealing with difficult characters, and maybe people aren't as bad as you think. "
