In this exciting fantasy, Druids, elves, dwarves, and gnomes join forces with main characters Brin and Jair Olmsford to rid their world of evil Mord Wraiths. Brin and Jair make magic when they sing the Wishsong. Brin sets off with the Druids to destroy the evil Ildatch, encountering fantastical beasts, which are described in minute detail. Jair's adventure with the gnomes involves his efforts to meet up with Brin before the Ildatch does. Charles Keating takes this tale in hand and weaves all of Brooks's magic. Keating's deep voice rises and falls with the action, his intonation matching the characters' actions and emotions. THE WISHSONG, third in this series, is straightforward enough to follow in this abridgment. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 06]
