A prideful, gruff-voiced captain has vowed to make his crystal-powered airship with all its rigging battle worthy once again. Along the way, he takes on a young noblewoman and a talking cat as passengers. It's part pirate tale, part high fantasy, part coming-of-age story, and all steam punk. Obie Award winner and Scottish-born Euan Morton narrates this sprawling opening volume of THE CINDER SPIRES with the spirit of a buccaneer and an ear for a couple of dozen different vocal rhythms and dialects from the British Isles. Morton is especially adept at naturally carrying on the conversations between the growling shipmates and the highborn Gwen. Morton keeps the action moving and speaks "cat" perfectly.
