HIGH WIZARDRY is the third book in a fantasy series that involves our world, space, and alternate universes. The plots tend to get very technical with scientific jargon--in this case, computer technology--which makes them far easier to listen to than to read. This story focuses on Darine, a 10-year-old new to wizardry and the necessary spells, but a genius with--and without--computers. Christina Moore's narration imbues Darine with intelligence, impatience, and arrogance. Lacking the emotional maturity and wisdom of the older children and adults, she is a child who holds herself apart from others. Darine's sister Nita and her friend Kit, along with the parents and others they meet, are easily distinguished by tone and accent. Moore's vocal flexibility truly shines through as she gives a distinct voice and personality to each of the computer robots Darine creates--within the clipped, modulated speech pattern typical of all mechanical voices.
