    1. This review was originally published at Fluttering ButterfliesThere's something really comforting about reading M. L. Welsh's stories. They're so sweet with a slightly old-fashioned tone to them that just makes me feel very nostalgic. I was absolutely thrilled when I heard that Heart of Stone would be a sequel to Mistress of the Storm, which I read and adored last year. And Heart of Stone was just as brilliant. Gushy review to follow, be warned!I absolutely adore the main character, Verity Galla [...]

    2. I gave up on this book more than 2/3 of the way done. I was just not captured by this one, and once I put it down for a while, I had no interest in picking it back up again.

    3. As you can probably already tell, I'm totally in love with the setting and main character. The setting is along the seacoast, one of my favorite places in the world. Verity is not your normal lead character, she feels like the odd one out most of the time. The friendships between Henry, Martha and Verity are honest in that they go through their own set of struggles. Anyone who loved Over Sea, Over Stone by Susan Cooper will feel right at home in Verity's world. Of course after reading about half [...]

    4. Rarely do sequels improve upon the first book, but in this case, Welsh offers a bracing, beautifully composed middle grade fantasy. As weird earthquakes and a strange surfeit of sand threaten their seaside village, Verity, Henry, Martha, and their staunch librarian friend must work to save the Original Stories from being scoured away and their world from dissolving. The Earth Witch, her powers long held in check by the Mistress (villainess from book 1), is literally coming back together after be [...]

    5. After defeating the Mistress in the first book of the series, Verity Gallant and her friend have been enjoying the summer sailing and relaxing. They thought the danger was over. But that is simply not the case. The Earth Witch is determined to come back and crush Verity and all the happy stories. Is Verity up to the challenge this time? She is determined to find a way. With lots of library research and some luck, she may just be able to defeat the Earth Witch.

    6. Continuation of the story begun in the author's "Mistress of the storm." Again, Verity, Henry and friends decipher clues and warnings to save their town from destruction by the second of four sisters: the Earth Witch. What I like about it is the research component of the plot, and the central place of the library in the success of the challenges.

    7. This book would have been a whole lot better without the obligatory love triangle. I can't understand why that's always a thing that MUST happen to a young female protagonist.
