    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.

    Overall

    This book converted me to audio books! I have read Tamora Pierce for 22 years now, and was impatiently awaiting her next book. When Melting Stones was released as an audio book, I decided to listen rather than waiting for the hard copy. I'm glad I did.

    The story is about Evvy, a character introduced in "Street Magic." She is a fourteen year old stone mage. She gets dragged along on a trip to investigate why the water and plants on an island are suddenly dying. She has no interest in this, because her magic is with rocks. But she quickly gets involved, when it turns out her magic is the most important of the three mages' on the trip.

    The narration is excellent, and having different actors read each part truly brings the book to life. Even though the characters don't sound the same way they did in my head, it was delightful to be able to close my eyes and enter the world of a book, even while on the subway or washing dishes.
