In Book Two of this series, Chip, Jonah, Katherine, and Alex travel back to fifteenth-century England, where they try to save the doomed princes, Edward and Richard, without altering history. Narrator Chris Sorenson moves smoothly between the timbre of the story’s narrator and the youthfulness of the characters. Sorenson consistently delivers his vocal characterizations, and his inflections help listeners follow the plot. He also projects the many emotions of the children as they encounter unexpected challenges. His even cadence carries the story along, and he uses brief pauses effectively to build suspense. Sorenson's narration will appeal to all listeners but is especially suited to children in middle school. J.K.R.
