Enter a world of magical delights with a cadre of characters ranging from fairies and tree spirits to an eagle-man with a startling screech. Narrator Richard Easton portrays them all with a range of vocal expression worthy of an epic tale. Listeners are transported to the realms of Avalon as Easton uses myriad voices to skillfully weave this story of three young people, two boys and a girl, one of whom is the rightful heir of the great wizard Merlin. Combining the best in fantasy and adventure, Barron's book is also a mystery because another of the trio is the dreaded child of the Dark Prophecy, who is preordained to destroy this beautiful world. Easton's recounting builds excitement and wonder for listeners as the three search for the secrets of their interwoven destinies. D.P.M. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
