Rich characters and multifaceted plots are hallmarks of Wrede's Enchanted Forest Chronicles. The newly crowned Queen Cimorene; Morwen, the witch; Telemain, the magician; Kazul, King of the Dragons; and an array of cats pool their resources to confront the wizards who threaten the integrity of the Enchanted Forest. A full-cast recording is the perfect solution for presenting such an intense, rich, and involved story. Distinctive character voices enable the listener to differentiate the players quickly and focus intensely on their adventures. Devotion to the development of one or two characters affords each cast member opportunities for depth and playfulness. Listen intently to the end of the recording; the epilogue suggests a power struggle to come! A.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
