In this medieval tale of magic, Sybil, servant girl of an alchemist, finds herself in a bind. Her life has been inextricably tied to four stones; when they're gone, her life will cease. To save herself, she must find someone with green eyes to read THE BOOK WITHOUT WORDS. John Curless commands his characters better than any orchestra conductor. His authority with the narrative text transitions swiftly to his characterizations, which he emboldens with defining traits. Whether the talking raven Odo or the self-righteous Master Bashcroft, Curless need only speak a few words for the listener to understand the type of personality each of these characters represents.
