Narrator Cassandra Morris's clear, youthful voice is well matched to the character of smart and resourceful Alice. In the wake of her father's disappearance, she's sent to a mysterious house with a dangerous library. Morris's high voice is tinged with subversive humor, and her ability to drop subtle vocal clues while narrating enhances the ominous and suspenseful moments of this fantastical mystery. With a calculated pace, she unfolds this tense story, and her depth and range truly come into play in her characterizations of supernatural creatures, oddly secretive household inhabitants, and portentous cats. This work is an excellent kickoff to a promising series, and Morris illuminates its world beautifully. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2015]
