Publisher's summary

The kingdom in the Valley has long sheltered under the protection of its Jewels and Lapidaries, the people bound to singing gemstones with the power to reshape hills, move rivers, and warp minds. That power has kept the peace and tranquility, and the kingdom has flourished.

Jewel Lin and her Lapidary, Sima, may be the last to enjoy that peace.

The Jeweled Court has been betrayed. As screaming raiders sweep down from the mountains and Lapidary servants shatter under the pressure, the last princess of the Valley will have to summon up a strength she's never known. If she can assume her royal dignity, and if Sima can master the most dangerous gemstone in the land, they may be able to survive.

Story Good - Editing Bad

There were several instances where sentences that were said twice with different intonations were left in. It was confusing and distracted from the plot.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.

Serious technical issues with the audio

The audio file is in desperate need of editing. There are repeated sentences and background noises that constantly pull me out of the story. I like the world and what is set up here, but listening to this is a bit painful.
