Publisher's Summary

Big Magic.

Big Adventure.

Lots of Humor.

Tomorrow, at 16, Connor will reveal his secret curse to the world and take his place as a guardian.

If he survives today.

When armies descend upon his peaceful village, led by superhuman Petralists and clever Builders, most people run and hide. Connor's not that smart. He manages to get caught in the middle of the escalating conflict. His curse is the rarest of powers and both sides will do anything to control it and secure his loyalty.

Connor is fast, but even he can't outrun this avalanche. Truths are sacrificed, loyalties are sundered, and dangerous girls twist his heart into knots.

That's when things get complicated.

While his friends try to free the village under siege, Connor peels back layers of intrigue and half-truths to find secrets neither side wants him to know. Surrounded by deadly enemies, Connor must choose a course with the lives of everyone he loves hanging in the balance. His only hope is to gamble everything on a curse that could destroy them all unless his final choice is Set in Stone.

YES.

This book is amazing! It's been a favorite of mine for years, and hearing it again in this new voice adds a whole nother level of awesome. The narrator is fantastic, unerringly true to character voices, mingling the epicness of the story with the innate humor of these characters. In short? Read it!!

Great read from start to finish

Witty author, many unexpected turns in the plot, and kept my interest from start to finish. Joshua Story’s reading for the audiobook was perfect, spot on, entertaining, and intriguing throughout. Now we just need this series to be a motion picture!!

Great book

Had to fast forward through some of that teen angst in the begging, and then where it was sprinkled in through the story, but over all it’s a great book and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series

so slow

fair warning, you are in for a long slow burn with this book. i understand the need to build the world and such, but I'm hoping the second book is better.

Big magic, big adventure? Humor?

The entire book only covered events over the course of a few days and only centered around a small town and it's valley. There's not much aventure to it. The concept of the magic was pretty cool - although it was extremely confusing and annoying to get snippets of how the magic works throughout the book. It's still not fully explained by the end. Hopefully book 2 will cover it. It had light-hearted humor that wasn't terrible but it wasn't my type of humor. I let out a chuckle or two but that was it. The main character was hard to relate to especially when he's confused about everything until the end.

New story.

I like the story very much because it was different than many of the other stories I have read. The Reader was great except the female voices sounded very similar. Everything else was great. The story is one I want to read to the end!
