British actor Stanley McGeagh's arsenal of voices, which characterize wizards, elves, and humans, enhances this second book in the School of Magic series. To further his plan for revenge, the high elf Rathalorn uses two mysterious twins who possess great magical ability. McGeagh ably portrays the arrogant Rathalorn, whose single-mindedness prevents him from enjoying the life he's created in the human world. When the plot takes an unexpected twist, McGeagh is equally adept at capturing Rathalorn's change of heart. McGeagh succeeds in creating other distinct voices, from a lilting Irish brogue to a Cockney accent, for supporting characters. Luckett's fast-moving fantasy is enjoyable, and McGeagh delivers it with style. L.A.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2009]
