Narrator Peter Kenny on INNATE MAGIC

Narrator Peter Kenny shows off his stable of UK accents as tells AudioFile listeners about his experience recording INNATE MAGIC, the first book in a new series from Shannon Fay. This alternate-reality fantasy with a steampunk edge is set in 1950s London and is full of fascinating characters.

"This is the voice that I grew up with as a kid, and I don't get many opportunities to actually use this voice . . . so it was a great privilege to be asked to do this book in the accent of my childhood."—Narrator Peter Kenny

AudioFile Earphones Award

Paul Gallagher, a sewer of magic clothes, is eager, ambitious, and willing to do almost anything to reach his goals, but when he's offered a chance at his biggest dream, Paul must examine his priorities. Kenny imbues his portrayal of Paul with both cheerful optimism and a staggering naïveté. Paul is a Scouser; having grown up working class in Liverpool, he retains his accent despite his time in London. Other characters from a wide variety of social backgrounds and nationalities are performed with equal verve and believability, making Kenny's performance truly outstanding.
