ENDYMION SPRING is a fantasy novel with two story lines, each revolving around a strange book--a mysteriously wordless volume that seems to have a life of its own. In fifteenth-century Germany, a young printer's apprentice is irresistibly drawn to a sinister chest protected by carved monsters and a clasp of snakes' heads. At modern-day Oxford University, a professor's young son discovers an enticing blank volume in the ancient library. Narrator Richard Easton's well-honed voice enlivens the stories with rich characters and both boys' tentative sense of discovery. With his sophisticated intonation, Easton deftly prompts the listener to consider the author's themes of the priceless value of knowledge and delight in the written word.
