NEW SPRING

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kate Reading, Michael Kramer

Fiction • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

This novel, fleshed out from a novella, is a prequel to the immensely popular Wheel of Time series. It's a rich, satisfying fantasy with plenty of originality, character development, and multiple plot lines. The Aes Sedai, powerful, magic-wielding women, receive a prophesy about the birth of a man who will save the world. Two Aes Sedai rush to save him with the help of fighting soldier Lan Mandragoran. As there is more of a female presence in the story, Kate Reading's performance stands out. Michael Kramer's bare-bones delivery is perfect for the soldier who has lost his belief in a better world until he is swept up in adventure. Both narrators handle complex roles with feeling and confidence, never losing the excitement and tension of the fast-moving story. The performers breathe emotion into their characters with an earnestness that holds listeners close and leaves them wanting more. D.G. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
