A myriad of strong characters is featured in Wilson’s story, which is part time travel, part thriller, part Western, and part quest. It all provides a showcase for MacLeod Andrews’s narration skills, and he doesn’t disappoint. Twelve-year-old Sam Miracle, an orphan who is besieged by dreams of the past, is determined to do right by his father and sister. If Sam can replay a portion of his past life, his personal situation will be resolved, but as he lights down in different timeframes, his enemy, the Vulture, is waiting to thwart him. Andrews moves in and out of each character deftly. His Sam is a spot-on tween, anguished or pigheaded; his Vulture is loud, forceful, and intimidating. Reading the narrative, Andrews soothes the listener with a calming voice as he sets all the scenes. A.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
