      Born in the wilds of British Columbia, the young Faith frolicked among the Sasquatch native to the province before moving to Ontario at age five There she was homeschooled with her three brothers, and developed an unnatural passion for galloping around on horseback, though never without a proper helmet because you only get one skull After twenty years of suffering through Ontario s obscenely hot summers, she migrated east, and now lives beside the other ocean in Halifax, Nova Scotia She worked in animation for a bit, and now draws comics full time She s not sure how that happened either.

      This sequel to The Nameless City is as addictive as its predecessor I m not one for exaggeratedly long series, but I wouldn t mind reading ten books in this series I m even sad this adventure will end after the next book The story continues with Kaidu s father putting his efforts into his project to assure peace in the Nameless City But the general s son is against it and will do everything possible to make sure the project never flourishes Kaidu and Rat play a slightly less important role in th [...]

    2. Heidi The Hippie Reader says:
      The Nameless City graphic novels are excellent for kids aged 10 to 14 The Stone Heart like The Nameless City is well drawn with diverse characters and a plot that can be followed by young readers It presents the difficulties of balancing cultural expectations, politics, and belonging with the natural emotions of friendship and understanding.The kids, Kai and Rat, are from completely different social castes, but it doesn t matter to them If only the rest of the world didn t live with prejudiced b [...]

    3. David Schaafsma says:
      I m loving this series especially designed for middle grade readers, The Nameless City, set in 13th century China, Hicks s most challenging project thus far I am especially a big fan of her Friends with Boys, which is this sweet, intimate family based story, and The Adventures of Supergirl, which is hilarious So this is completely different And I normally prefer little intimate indie projects, but since I am already familiar with Hicks s style and sensibilities, I knew I would like this So this [...]

    4. First Second Books says:

      The story gets dark in this book Kai and Rat are still hanging out together, racing and eating, while Kai s father and the General of Blades continue efforts to put together a council for the Nameless City with representation from the different peoples of the City The General s son resents the change to all his expectations and plans, and takes matters into his own hands Meanwhile, it looks like Mura is than just a wicked good fighter, and it s great how Faith Erin Hicks reveals how Mura s got [...]


    6. Laura (Bookies & Cookies) says:
      Great for fans of Avatar The Last Airbender and The Leend of Korra There are similar class issues as in Ba Sing Se as well as ownership issues as in Republic City.

    7. Molly says:
      I somehow read this without realizing that it was the second volume in a trilogy, so now I am going to have to go back and read the first Even without the background of the first volume, the story was easy enough to follow Faith Erin Hicks rarely disappoints me with her art and stories, and this was no exception Sort of a political thriller, but also a story about friendship and the importance of striving to do the right thing even when it s dangerous or difficult Really excited to read the othe [...]

      3.5 out of 5The Stone Heart, the second graphic novel in The Nameless City trilogy, is an engaging continuation of the story with the same lovable characters and an expressive and dynamic artwork While the previous volume, The Nameless City, could have easily passed for a standalone, The Stone Heart feels like a preparation for the next volume as it ends in a huge cliffhanger and its plot is a little bit thinner than the series opener s However, the somewhat slower pace in the second book allow [...]

    10. Ran says:
      Continuing with this trilogy, the story picks up with Kai and Rat three months after the attempted assassination of the Dao General of All Blades This particular General s son, Erzi, does not like that his city, which was destined to be ruled by himself, is going to be under a multi cultural council, including the Named city dwellers, Dao, and other groups though the Yisun still won t meet Kai s father for talks because there s a lot of animosity between the Yisun and the Dao Erzi takes matters [...]


    11. Joe Santoro says:
      When the only complaint one can think of is being annoyed that it s going to be too long until the next installment, one knows one has read a good book.This sequel is just as interesting and compelling as the first I only regret that it is only a trilogy there is so much that could be written here


    12. Maggie Gordon says:
      I adore Faith Erin Hicks work, and the Nameless City volumes are her strongest releases so far Having followed her progress for quite a long time, it s wonderful to see just how strong her artistry has gotten The Stone Heart is a gorgeous book with intricately illustrated backgrounds and characters with delightful sense of movement Story wise, it continues directly from the first volume Rat and Kaidu are no longer secret friends, and the General of All Blades and Kaidu s father are hard at work [...]

      The Stone Heart is the second in The Nameless City series by Faith Erin Hicks I like this story a lot Set in the 13th Century the city has been conquered over and over again, so many times, in fact, that it doesn t have a true name Kaidu is new to the city, staying with his father at the Dao palace, and is quickly learning that not everything is as it seems The Dao believe everything in the city is peaceful and fine but they have little regard for the people they ve conquered Soon Kaidu explores [...]

    14. Heidi says:
      Having really liked the first book in The Nameless City trilogy, I was eager to read this second book And I was not disappointed Kai and Rat are coming to terms with their changed circumstances and the changes that seem to be in store for the city But unfortunately, the politics involved in the running of an empire can change quickly, and when things take a turn for the worse, Kai, his father, and Rat are forced to flee As the fate of the city rests on a knife s edge, Kai and Rat wonder if the f [...]

    15. Bookish says:
      Guys, I m so obsessed with this middle grade series It focuses on the friendship between Rat, a native of the Nameless city, and Kaidu, a member of the Dao, the people who conquered the city They respect each other and openly discuss the ingrained prejudices of their societies, while helping to fight against an oppressive government regime It s smart, complex, and never underestimates its target audience I m already itching for the next one Kelly bookish articles book

    16. John says:
      Hopes for peace go a glimmering as regime change comes to the Nameless City s latest conquerors the Dao just as a new invading army approaches, and a book about a powerful ancient weapon comes to light Once again Rat and Kaidu are at the center of events, and also the only ones who can stave off widespread disaster maybe Hicks ends this episode in mid gallop, so I hope the closer isn t all that far offotherwise she does her usual spectacular job of capturing nuances of character in the art and k [...]

    17. Karissa says:

    18. Lara says:
      I m really liking this series a lot I love Kai and Rat s friendship, and how they re gradually learning about each other I like that nobody s wholeheartedly, straight up a villain just for the sake of being a villain there are reasons And mane story in this volume definitely went in some directions I did not expect it to go I m excited about the finale write and draw like the wind, Faith Erin Hicks Like the wind

    19. Nina says:
      This got a bit darker than I was expecting But it s so good The characters are all interesting and have so much depth even though it s a JGN There are so many good themes you could talk about if you read this with your kid or a class, etc Can t wait for 3


    20. Rebekah says:
      Again, beautiful art with an upsetting, colonialist stereotype at the core.


    21. Kayla Leitschuh says:
