In this fantasy, the listener gets drawn into a scenario in which sorcerers with powerful magic learn to defend themselves and their temple from evil pirates. The full cast is effective in portraying this unique world. Each voice is distinct and matches its character well. The mages, or teachers, are calm and wise, and the young mages, or students, are typical teens trying to control their impulsive natures. Because this is the second in a series, the relationships among the characters are a bit difficult to understand at first. But the mission is clear--the young friends must band together to defeat evil. D.L.M.
