Publisher's Summary

The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace forged by four dwarves in ancient times. It is said that, if worn, your tears turn to gold.
The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace currently residing in a glass display case, on a shelf, in the bathroom of an Edinburgh townhouse belonging to a woman called Hattie.
The Brisingamen Necklace - A necklace soon to be stolen by an unsuspecting thief.
About the Series... Giants, pixies, mermaids - all creatures confined within fairytales. But what if these being were as real as you or I? They're not that easy to spot but if you look properly you will find them. Thanks to her different-coloured eyes, Edinburgh resident, Hattie, can clearly see that goblin sitting on the park bench tripping up passers-by, or the salamander that's relaxing in the flames of next door's bonfire. As long as the creatures don't bother her, she won't bother the creatures. But if they do cause trouble, they'd better watch out...
The second book in the Edinburgh Elemental fantasy series.

prefered the first book

Would you try another book written by Gayle Ramage or narrated by Chris Barnes?

yes to both... looking forward to them.


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

a bit longer, more character development and more critters


Which scene did you most enjoy?

neh


Do you think Tears of Gold needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

yes i hope its part of a series


Any additional comments?

Hattie gets burgled and of course she has unusual things in her house. Sadly, all the witches in the town cannot seem to protect this lovely necklace that allows the wearer to cry tears of gold.

Hattie is keen to get this back as the wearer is not usually a very lucky one despite the gold.
After a bit skulduggery she tracks down the thief.

Whilst I enjoyed the story it did not have the belly laughs of depth of story of the first one, the creatures and myths were eluded to but never fully formed and Michael and his family were a mere after thought.

again Chris Barnes does a fabulous job of bringing what little character there was to life.

Short, but so endearing

Would you consider the audio edition of Tears of Gold to be better than the print version?

Is there a printed version?Chris Barnes succeeds in setting up a cosy and fuzzy atmosphere that I'm not sure I'd get by simply reading the text.


What did you like best about this story?

As astounded as I am about my saying so: the whole series benefits from coming in form of short stories rather than a longer novel. I'm fairly certain that the style and the stories wouldn't come over as well in a longer version.


What about Chris Barnes’s performance did you like?

See above. There's a certain *ambiance* that Barnes creates that gives the whole story an extra dimension.


If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"A tear is a tear, even if it's golden..."


Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next instalment!
