   The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SOUL OF STONE (Ice and Stone, #1) . . . Deeper meanings are laying just below the surface but sufficient evidence provides you with that string and the line to follow all the way to the end of the what lies on the surface. Someone had decided to take girls. The question becomes where, why, and who. To solve this mystery we are taken on a suspense filled ride of magic and much more than meet the eyes. Danielle and Aaron find that they are pulled in to a world they have no real knowledge of but they also find that they have the skills/weapons to face what appears before them. 

The characters presented here were rich with depth and substance. The plot and sub-plot held focus on the mystery, adventure, and the twist and turns gave a good story all the way through. There was closure in a sense to the sub-plot but the overall or underlying plotline left you with a cliffhanger. But this in no way took away from the richness of the story. You get an excellent story and wanting more just added and additional layer. 

Narrator Amanda Stribling did the job of keeping me well captivated and entranced. The audio was clear and clean of hiccups and background noises. This was the type of audio that you took the time to listen to at normal or as close to normal speed as possible. You don't want to miss a thing.  The feel of Amanda' voice give you more to enjoy. You almost feel like you are seeing things unfold right before your eyes.  
I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Traci McDonald. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Danielle Lyndon, owner of a 200-year-old bookstore in Greenville, Alabama, has built a fortress of suspicion around her heart. A tragic fire has taken the lives of her beloved Grandmother and mother, leaving her with nothing but an ancient collection of magical books. 

Facing what seems like an eternity of loneliness and abandonment, her life is inexorably altered late one night when a runaway teenage girl breaks into her store and Danielle receives a mysterious text message…from her dead mother. 

The only person who can help her is Aaron Donnell, a reckless, tormented drifter with haunting silver-blue eyes who is searching for the burglar, his younger sister. Aaron somehow holds the answers to the mysterious texts, but he’s arrogant, dangerous, and is clearly no good for her. The problem is . . . . she’s falling in love with him. 

Consumed with Aaron’s mysterious darkness and the prospect of locating the source of the texts, Danielle allows him to unwittingly drag her into an insane, mystical world where human trafficking is the usual, black magic reigns supreme, and inhuman power lasts forever. 

Are the dark chasms of magic and eternity too wide and deep for love to cross? Is the collateral damage in their battle too high of a price to pay if it leaves someone with their soul encased in stone?
