Good narration pulls listeners into a somewhat muddled story and creates heartfelt, likable characters. Jenna Lamia does an outstanding job with heroine Kezi, giving her a joyful lilt of loosely contained exuberance that has her dancing while others walk. Oliver Wyman, in the role of handsome Olus, god of the winds, is steadfast and strong. This tale will appeal to fans of classic mythology. The same shortcomings that have mystified us amid Greek and Roman shenanigans show up as a father's willingness to sacrifice his own daughter over a rashly made promise to the gods. But listeners will quickly get beyond that to adventure and romance as Kezi and her would-be savior, Olus, set off on their quest. D.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2009]
