Pierdomenico Baccalario, Carrington MacDuffie (Narrator). The Century Quartet: Star of Stone was pretty good. In Book Two of the Century Quartet, four kids with Leap Day birthdays come together again to solve another puzzle, this time in New York City.

Pierdomenico Baccalario, Carrington MacDuffie (Narrator). 8 Hours and 25 Minutes. I enjoyed the storyline, the new twists in the plot, and how the author saves some surprises for the reader throughout the whole book.

The Century Quartet is a great set of books, that were a very fast read. I could easily see kids being pulled into the story, as it is sort of like a "Da Vinci Code" for kids. The author even seems to crack the fourth wall, in a way which establishes the setting as being modern times even better, by making reference to the Da Vinci Code and other "current" events in the early 21st century. Broken into 4 parts, with the 4 kids being on a quest to find 4 objects. Can't wait to share these with my nieces and nephews.

I love Pierdomenico Baccalario's books. He wrote the Ulysses Moore series for Scholastic which ended abruptly. When I found Book 1 of the Century Quartet and noted the author I was thrilled. Couldn't read the 1st book fast enough. Book 2 Star of Stone didn't disappoint. The 4 friends brought together in Book 1 continue their saga as they search for the star of stone. Baccalario keeps the mystery going really well and the adventure he adds keeps the book moving. And he sneaks in a Ulysses Moore mention along the way. Love it!!!

"Star of Stone" is the second book in the Century series. As the mystery continues, Elettra, Mistral, Sheng and Harvey are brought together in the New York City as they try to unravel the story behind the ancient tops and the Chaldean map.

Personally, I love this story. It's smart and wickedly clever, presenting all sorts of interesting information about ancient cults, antiques, architecture and art. Truly, Baccalario effortlessly manages to sneak in history lessons and connect elements of modern life to those of the ancients.

"Star of Stone" also stands out, in my experience, in not being one of 'those' kidlit books where the author talks down to the reader. It's the subject matter, therefore, that's appropriate for any age, and not a case of a watered down narrative.

Highly recommend.
Tween-and-up readers who like mysteries and danger should check out this series.

THE SKINNY:::
An intelligent, well plotted story of Good-vs-Evil that's fraught with tension. The main characters are well developed and secondary characters are fascinating.

"Star of Stone" is written in The Present Tense (as is Wolf Hall), a form some readers might not have run across unless they've read quite a bit. (It's worth perusing if only to thwart Phillip Pullman for whom the form apparently presents a personal writing challenge.)

Appropriate for Tweens on up.

I think this book compares well to Riordan's "Percy Jackson" series, although it's style is a tad more mature.

Next stop... Paris!
