The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace forged by four dwarves in ancient times. It is said that, if worn, your tears turn to gold.
The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace currently residing in a glass display case, on a shelf, in the bathroom of an Edinburgh townhouse belonging to a woman called Hattie.
The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace soon to be stolen by an unsuspecting thief.
About the Series... Giants, pixies, mermaids - all creatures confined within fairytales. But what if these being were as real as you or I? They're not that easy to spot but if you look properly you will find them. Thanks to her different-coloured eyes, Edinburgh resident, Hattie, can clearly see that goblin sitting on the park bench tripping up passers-by, or the salamander that's relaxing in the flames of next door's bonfire. As long as the creatures don't bother her, she won't bother the creatures. But if they do cause trouble, they'd better watch out...
The second book in the Edinburgh Elemental fantasy series.

The narrator's voice for the characters.
The scene when the necklace is found.
Again, like part one, this is an interesting short story.
Book one and three were a lot better. I'm not sure why. I just didn't particularly like this one. I think maybe it was anti-climactic.
"prefered the first book"
yes to both... looking forward to them.
a bit longer, more character development and more critters
yes i hope its part of a series
Hattie gets burgled and of course she has unusual things in her house. Sadly, all the witches in the town cannot seem to protect this lovely necklace that allows the wearer to cry tears of gold.
Hattie is keen to get this back as the wearer is not usually a very lucky one despite the gold.
After a bit skulduggery she tracks down the thief.
Whilst I enjoyed the story it did not have the belly laughs of depth of story of the first one, the creatures and myths were eluded to but never fully formed and Michael and his family were a mere after thought.
again Chris Barnes does a fabulous job of bringing what little character there was to life.
"Short, but so endearing"
Is there a printed version?Chris Barnes succeeds in setting up a cosy and fuzzy atmosphere that I'm not sure I'd get by simply reading the text.
As astounded as I am about my saying so: the whole series benefits from coming in form of short stories rather than a longer novel. I'm fairly certain that the style and the stories wouldn't come over as well in a longer version.
See above. There's a certain *ambiance* that Barnes creates that gives the whole story an extra dimension.
"A tear is a tear, even if it's golden..."
Can't wait for the next instalment!
"Another fun, short story."
I'm really liking this series, they are quick listens - this one is 32 minutes long.
Chris Barnes' performance is engaging and enjoyable to listen to.
