Abandoned by his mother in the city of Centropolis, the young Jommy Cross struggles to survive because he is not like other humans. He's a genetically modified "slan," who can read minds. But humans actively hunt slans. In his fight for survival, Cross will find himself involved in various conspiracies and encountering other slans, who may or may not help him. Oliver Wyman's voice is crisp, and his tone imbues a momentum to the story that engage listeners. His vocal characterizations are adequate but never fully embody the characters, especially the younger ones. It's also often hard to tell the difference between male and female voices unless indicated by the text. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
