For a story as intricate this one, only a masterful performance will maintain listeners' interest and comprehension. Paul Michael Garcia is a talented reader, but this certainly is not his best work. Here his narration is mechanical and monotone as he delivers the thrilling text. It's nearly impossible to discern differences between the characters—Garcia neither speaks with different inflections nor vocally characterizes the life of each character. MOONHEART is an excellent urban-fantasy novel with numerous twists and intriguing characters. Garcia avoids its complexity, settling for a solid but ultimately bland performance. While de Lint provides the material for a strong performance, this production does not deliver it. R.N. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
