A city has many lives and layers. London has more than most. Not all the layers are underground, and not all the lives belong to the living. A twelve-year-old boy named George Chapman is about to find this out the hard way. On a school trip he’s punished for something he didn’t do. In a tiny act of rebellion, he lashes out at a small carving on the wall—unexpectedly breaking it off. And then something horrible does happen: a stone pterodactyl unpeels from the wall and starts chasing him. George is already running before his mind starts trying to tell him this is impossible.

Listener Opinions

    " For whatever reason, I couldn't get into the book. I only made it a few chapters. "

    " Once this book found its stride, it was great! London has so much history that it begs to have stories like this written. The idea of statues that have a life of their own, with a whole world of their own superimposed on the world we know, is a fascinating one. For anyone who has ever felt watched by a statue, this is a wonderful series to fuel your imagination. "

    " Surprisingly enough, I couldn't really get into this book like I expected I would. I am a big fan of Jim Dale as a reader, but something about this book wasn't as exciting as the other books I've listened to by him. I still enjoyed the story and following Charlie as he meets all kinds of interesting statues and other glints, but it wasn't as good as I was hoping. Dale does an excellent job reading though and overall a pretty good book. I'd recommend giving it a go if you're a fantasy fan or a fan of Dale. "

    " Gave up halfway through. Just wasn't interesting for me, even though I usually like these young adult type of books. I may return to it another time, but just have too many other things I'd like to read to waste my time with something I'm not in love with. "
