Publisher's Summary

Now that George Chapman has upset the fragile truce between the warring statues of London, he has been drawn into a war that will test his mettle. He and Edie, a glint who can see the past, may have succeeded in their quest to find the Stoneheart, but their journey is far from over.

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 find the strength to face the choice he has made, to take the Hard Way, he is determined to use his power for good - even as others wish to harness it for its great potential for evil.

    Story
    "Terrific!"

    This is the second title in the series (unfortunately, as of right now Audible doesn't have the first book, Stoneheart) but you don't have to have read the first book to understand what's going on. Mind you it's better to have read the first one, just not necessary. Jim Dale does his usual fantastic job as Narrator and the story is fast paced and exciting. I found myself wanting to go to London to see the world Fletcher describes! I was so enchanted with this story that I purchased both the audio and hardback versions of both books and am eagerly awaiting the release of the third.

    "Great Story Comes to life with Jim Dale"

    For those like myself who have yurned for a book with the same type of great writing as we experienced with HP well HERE IT IS. WOW - I am not a writer (OBVIOUSLY) but let me tell you this was one enjoyable story and listening to the talented Mr. Dale once again was music to my ears.

    I ordered the first in the series since it is not available here and will anxiously await the final installment!!!!

    Story
    "Wonderful Adventure!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ironhand to be better than the print version?

    very much so!


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he really brings the peril right into your face.it was much more intense to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes to both.

    "Great read"

    This book was excellent. It reminded me of the harry Potter books. A fun whimsical adventure. Love the narrator as well, he lends his voice to many characters very well.

    "Loved it!"

    Great continuation of the series! George, Edie and The Gunner are great characters. Spout is a great addition too. I was unable to put it down. Jim Dale is a great narrator.

    "Really well done."

    Our family listened to this story on a long trip and we all enjoyed it. We were sorry when it was over and look forward to the next installment. We are big Potter fans so it was like seeing an old friend to hear Jim Dale again.

    Story
    "The end of the First Book."
    What made the experience of listening to Ironhand the most enjoyable?

    The fact that I had just fished the first book and it didn't really end. This book was really the second half of the first book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Spout.


    What does Jim Dale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He brings the characters to life in a way that I never could. He has an understanding of the different dialects and accents.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If destiny was a choice, could you make it?. or

    "Blimey, If he's one of us, we're really in trouble".


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to #3.
