Young adults will enjoy West's dramatic presentation of Nicholson's second book in the Wind on the Fire trilogy. The noise and confusion of the battle scenes are vividly portrayed. 15-year-old twins Kestrel and Bowman Hath are separated when their home, Aramanth, is raided and burned. Together they must learn how to break the power of the Master. Versatile narrator Samuel West heightens the continuing suspense and manages to sound thoughtful as Bowman struggles to learn the secrets of the Singer people. West beautifully marries the text and spirit of the story to the diverse, colorful characters, easily moving between genders, ages, and idiosyncrasies. Good family listening. S.C.A.
