Delightful writing and marvelous characters combine with a talented cast of voices to charm listeners in the fourth addition to the Enchanted Forest series. Daystar's mother gives him the "sword of the sleeping king" and sends him into the Enchanted Forest. Unsure of his mission or purpose, he is joined by quick-tempered Siara, a fire-witch, and they encounter several wonderful creatures and adventures. The characterization of Daystar, who is also the narrator, perfectly sets the tone and pace of this fantasy adventure. Voices delight, from the clear tones of young Daystar, to the squeaky voice of an elf, the goofy voice of a young dragon, and the fiery range of Siara's temper. F.L.F.
