Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-9

In this concluding book in the trilogy, George, 13, and Edie, 12, finally face their enemies the Walker, the Last Knight, and the Ice Devil in a battle that may destroy them. In a cold, snowy alternate London, the clock has struck 13, freezing time. An evil darkness has been released and the city's inhabitants have disappeared, leaving only taints (malevolent statues come to life) and spits (statues with a soul-like essence) to battle each other with George and Edie in the middle. George has discovered he is a maker and that only he can mend the rent in the Stone and vanquish the darkness. Edie's a glint who can see past events. She has seen her mother's and her own death at the hands of the Walker and wants revenge. A stone vein is climbing up George's arm and unless he can fight and win this final duel, it will continue to spread and turn him into stone. The children are aided and protected by the Gunner, a World War I memorial statue, a cat gargoyle, and a variety of other intriguing statues. George and Edie's action-packed experiences are told in alternate chapters. Their pasts are finally fully revealed, including a surprising connection between them. New readers of this series will be confused since the book does not stand on its own, but those familiar with the earlier titles will be satisfied.-Sharon Rawlins, New Jersey State Library, Trenton

Kirkus Reviews
George and Edie remain admirably stoic heroes, but dry prose inhibits this conclusion's pace. In a many-layered London, George and Edie are stuck in a timeless moment, the only humans who didn't disappear when time froze. They're not alone, though: Spits (metal and stone statues, mostly war figures) fight for good, while Taints (sculptures of non-human creatures) ally with the double-strong force of the dark. The dark has an Ice Devil and the ghoulish Walker, a grisly immortal who kills casually and steals life-forces. George and Edie's tenacious fighting spirits are especially touching because of their separate histories of emotional loss, but the narration's verbosity decelerates motion; for example, a falling object is "an angular jagged shape getting bigger with startling rapidity as it spun straight at them," its speed slowed by description. Battle action and Edie's nightmares also grind to a trudge. Only Edie's time-travel views of the Walker torturing her mother move quickly and creepily. Mostly for fans of the livelier second installment. (Fantasy. 10-13)

    Best in the series, and a great Jim Dale performance

    The first offering in the series was entertaining, but left a bit to be desired. The slack was really made up by the voicing of the Oscar and Grammy-winning Jim Dale, the voice of the Harry Potter series. The second book improves on the first, but this final offering is the reason the other two books exist. The characters are much more developed, and the book is engrosing and entertaining. It is a great book for kids and adults alike, and the audiobooks would be great on a long car trip. The whole family would love it!

    Book 3 of The Stoneheart Trilogy, Silvertongue is absolutely my

    Book 3 of The Stoneheart Trilogy, Silvertongue is absolutely my favorite and took me to knew levels of intrigue.  In this book, Fletcher was able to bring together many loose ends that were left unanswered in the first 2 books. He masterfully wove all the details together, and kept the pace going.  There was never a dull moment, and it was intriguing.  My favorite part was the dragon that came alive and helped them out in unexpected ways.  There were so many twists and turns, that the story was totally unpredictable and I was surprised at every turn.  Book 3, made it worth the effort of sludging through book 1 and then 2.  The author also did a much better job in this book, by keeping the point of view much cleaner.  When a new point of view was introduced, the author started a new chapter for the most part.  These clean breaks, made the book much more accessible and less confusing. It appears that Fletcher learned from the mistakes made in book 1.  I would encourage all to read, this series as the ending is enjoyable. Family friendliness is 5 out of 5 for this entire series, this is definitely oriented towards kids and older youth as well.

    Fantastic finale in the Stoneheart Trilogy

    From the first book this series set itself apart from the usual YA fiction. The relationships between the characters, both human and statue, rang true of any familial bond. Most YA fiction deal with family, either born or acquired. The difference between this book and many other popular YA novels was the way the relationships developed and played out over the course of the books. A boy coming to terms with his place in the world, a girl finding out how special she is, and the statues that help and hinder them along the way. Ultimately, it is a story of fixing what is broken, both literally and metaphorically.
    The tour of London and its' statues made me wish to visit and see them for myself. The concept of giving the statues life and emotion was both novel and daring. The concept worked brilliantly. The ending of the book left me wanting more, as any good book should.

    A Good Finish

    After reading the first 2 books in this trilogy, I had to read the last. I was a bit disappointed. It didn't flow as well, the story was ok. I liked the way it ended. I just didn't have that sense of urgency that the other two had. Still, not a bad read, especially if you've already read the first two.
