silvertongueSilvertongue is the last of the Stoneheart trilogy. Unfortunately the audiobook version was not available yet, so I missed out on Jim Dale’s excellent reading this time. None-the-less, an enjoyable book and a good, though surprising, twist ending to the trilogy.

Edie and George are back together, along with their Spit friends, but in the process of returning they’ve brought along a stowaway – a force from the blackness with no form of its own, cousin to the stone heart.

War between the Spits and the Taints is in full force, George’s marble vein is growing up his arm, 13:00 has struck and time has stopped. This is a fast-paced and extremely dense ending to the trilogy – a lot happens in this book.

Good YA fiction with strong male and female characters.
