Overview


The statues and gargoyles of London continue their epic battle as young George Chapman struggles to save his friends and fulfill his destiny.

Format: 8 CDs, Unabridged

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 face the choice he has made, he is determined to use his power for good, even as others wish to harness it for evil.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-9- In this sequel to Stoneheart (Hyperion, 2007), George, 13, Edie, 12, and the Gunner continue to flee from the Walker, a man cursed to walk the Earth forever, and from "taints," evil, soulless statues. George has accidentally upset the balance in this alternate London, a place where statues can get up and roam. Edie is kidnapped by the Walker, who wants to use her talents as a "glint," someone who can touch stone or metal and see into history, and to lure George into his malignant grasp. Meanwhile, the Walker has also dumped the Gunner, a World War I statue and self-appointed protector of the children, into the depths beneath the city. If the Gunner cannot return to his statue base by midnight, then he will never walk off his plinth again. George, alone and confused by his new status as a potential "maker," someone with the ability to create statues, sets out to rescue Edie and keep the Gunner from losing his "life." Ironhand is a well-written, fast-paced, and suspenseful fantasy. Fletcher successfully draws readers in with action and a continuously developing backstory for each of the characters. However, though the author includes a brief overview of the first book, this one does not stand on its own.-Jessica Miller, New Britain Public Library, CT

Kirkus Reviews
A rousing middle volume makes up for the flaws in its predecessor, Stoneheart (2007). Edie and George seek their friend the Gunner, a World War I memorial statue who can leave his plinth anytime except midnight. The vile Walker, roaming the earth immortally, has kidnapped him. As George and Edie set out, a gargoyle snatches George. After being tossed and battered in the air, George evades multitudes of taints (malevolent creature statues) and confronts a knight before learning that he must fight three duels. Edie needs help and information, but an unexpected betrayal leads her to a past London where she "glinted" her murder at the Walker's hands. She fights fiercely, but the scene of the Walker drowning her in the Thames plays out horrifyingly just as she foresaw from the present. Underground, the steady Gunner scrapes his way to safety, gently gathering the heart stones that the Walker stole from girls and women he slaughtered. George spends one wrenching hour in a WWI battle. Where the first volume's prose was dry, Ironhand's is crisp. Fast-paced, serious and gruffly tender. (Fantasy. 10-13)

    Fun Read!

    I enjoyed this book as the second in a series about two young children and a bunch of good or evil statues. Book one gave us the background that setup this second book which brings us 2 thirds of the way to the conclusion. The author develops the characters very well in these books and I enjoy the merging of British history with the storyline.

    This is the best book EVER!!!!!!!!!!

    This is my favorite book of all timmes!my fave part is when george beat up the Walked!Charlie Fletcher is good at writing!This book kept you turning pages. Every time the Gunner is in a life threatining situitaion, your always holding your breath to see if you survive. I love the ending, with the frost fair, and how george displays how much courage and bravery he has. This is the best book. I also liked how Georghe stood on the Gunner's plinth to save him from dying, even though he knew he would have to go back to the first world war. Charlie Fletcher, Please write the third book, and finish it soon!!!!!!!!1I'm about to die from the suspence of how you ended the second book. Please hurry!!~!!!!!!!1

    Review of IronHand book two in the StoneHeart Trilogy by Nick Ma

    Review of IronHand book two in the StoneHeart Trilogy by Nick May 26, 2014. Charlie Fletcher Wrote IronHand as a Science fiction book it was a very good follow up to the first book of the trilogy. As Edie the gunner and George must overcome many challenges they face they teach many life lessons and show that you shouldn’t judge something by its cover. I felt like I could fit in their shoes in different parts of the book. 
    As this book started off Edie and George were looking for the gunner whom was taken by the Walker. As they were searching they had to overcome many different tasks and challenges eventually them getting split up and having to overcome personal fears and challenges to re-unite each other. Edie was then captured by the walker leaving it up to George to save them both. George ran into many personal battles and challenges he needed to overcome to survive and try to save his friends. George must deal with three veins made of marble, bronze, and stone that have begun to grow out of his hand and up his arm. He must complete three difficult takes to save his life so he can save the gunner and Edie lives. There were many twists and turns in this book always having new things thrown at you and many unpredictable things happen thought. I felt the pain that George faced and hoped he would be successful in each challenge! This book has opened my eyes that you don’t know what people may be going through and inspired me not to judge people by their cover. I suggest you read this book it was amazing.

    George, Edie and the Gunner are swept apart and each made to fac

    George, Edie and the Gunner are swept apart and each made to face their one fears and nightmares. George comes face to face, with having to make hard decision about rescuing his friends, or taking the save way out. He rises to the challenges that he must overcome, not only to save his friends but also his own life that hangs in the balance. This book is even better than the first. Filled with twists and turns, that the reader cannot and anticipate. One is left wondering the entire time, whether their going to make it. Sprinkle a little time traveling into the mix, and you get a unique and refreshing story. The story is filled with action, fighting scenes, wild roller coasters, dark creepy places and adventure. Everyone of all ages will enjoy this book.

    I love Stoneheart trilogy, but I know London

    This is the middle book of the Stoneheart trilogy. I love it. It stars 2 tween kids, a poor girl and a well-off boy ~ sort of the 'Romeo & Juliet' pattern but just friends ~ in a series of life-or-death encounters that they must survive on their own, with no helpful adults nearby. I easily see the story through both kids' eyes although they are not as robust characters as, say, Lyra and Will in the His Dark Materials trilogy. trilogy. I vote zero for classroom reading in the USA because the London setting is too foreign to almost every American. If only these novels had included maps of the characters' treks back and forth across London and also images of the many London statues that come to life to feature as main characters. I've been to London often enough to have a feel for the cross-city trekking and a memory of some of the statues. Most of the other statues are pictured in Wikipedia.

    Even Better Than The First!

    The second of the Stoneheart trilogy, I found this to be even better than the first book. The characters were more developed, as was the storyline. Also, the pace was quicker, more fluid, and more engaging. Definitely a must read.
