Publisher's Summary

Galleries of Stone introduces a world where magical mountains are entrusted to master sculptors like Freydolf. Necessity drives this recluse from the Statuary to find a new servant. The villagers thereabouts fear him - with good reason - but when people are poor, and homes are crowded, all it takes is a handful of coins to loosen family ties. 

Tupper Meadowsweet isn’t the cleverest child, but he’s brave enough to follow Freydolf onto the gray mountain, where the Statuary’s living masterpieces hint at faraway lands, diverse races, unique customs, long histories, and danger.....

Wow. My heart wasn't ready.

Okay, so.. I'm a romance girl. I love my happy endings and wooing. This book has no romance, it's not about that- but I LOVE this author, and I wanted to enjoy the book just because I know I love her writing.

You guys, it's so adorable, and SO SWEET. The concept is something I've never heard of before, and the characterization is just as perfect as I expect from her. I was listening to this book while going about my daily chores, almost like you'd leave a TV show on to keep you company... except I was paying it nearly all my attention. Before I knew it the hours had flown by and I suddenly was nearing the end of the book.. and SO sad about it.

I loved this. The characters, their growth, their bonding.. just.. them. THIS is the PERFECT book to read while swinging from a hammock in a gently breeze, sipping your favorite cold drink and listening to birds sing. It's charming, heartwarming, and above all... I felt so fulfilled at the end of this book. And I CANNOT wait to get into book 2.

A Great Surprise!

Followed Travis Baldree here after the latest Cradle novel, what can I say, he adds a great touch to fantasy books! Enough of the narration though, this book was an amazing fantasy palette cleanser after all the heavy action and adventure novels I read/listened too recently. This book is intriguing, heartwarming, well suited for family listeners and sci-fi fantasy lovers. Looking forward to book 2.

Really special.

This was a fantastically unique audiobook. I’m normally not all that interested in heartwarming, slice of life novels, but C.J. Milbtandt has created something singularly touching in this story.

Whether you’re into this kind of thing or not, this is an engrossing listen that’s unlikely to disappoint. Definitely credit-worthy.

Wow

What a heart warming story. This is definitely one of those stories to go to when you are having a rough time. It brought me so much joy listening to the characters interact with one another. I am very much looking forward to the next one.

A different kind of story.

A good book over all! A bit slow, but it’s a good slow burn learn about the magic and the world type of book, with character growth as a key feature. Great narration as always and over all entertaining.

Very sweet and heartwarming

This was such a lovely surprise. This is a very calm, slow, unfolding tale. The characters are very memorable and the setting is so vivid and clear. Although it’s not at all action packed, you find that you just want to be in this world and be in the company of these characters. If you need a sweet, cozy and heartwarming tale, this is absolutely a book for you. Wish there was more fantasy novels like this. And…Travis Baldree delivers another stellar performance. 🖤
