You have to be a true fantasy fan to plod through this second volume in the Lord of the Isles series. Different worlds, strange-sounding names, dark magic and new laws of nature bring more confusion than entertainment, especially if you haven't listened to the first volume. Michael Page delivers a valiant performance of the work, easily vocalizing the hordes of characters, including a talking ape. His delivery is spirited and pointed, with perfect British diction and pacing. Page has a real knack for remembering whose magic works in what ways and which characters react to what stimuli in whatever circumstances. This is no small feat given the multitudes trekking through this tale. R.P.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
