Narrator James Cosmo’s rich, raspy tones immerse listeners in the darkly humorous world created by debut novelist Martin Stewart. Wulliam, almost 16, dreads taking up the family mantle of riverkeep, clearing the mythical Danék of ice, debris, and corpses. But when his beloved Pappa is possessed by an evil spirit, Wull sets off on an epic quest to find a cure. Along the way, he collects a motley crew of characters, whose exploits and snappy dialogue are aptly portrayed in Cosmo’s accented narration. Cosmo guides listeners through the labyrinthine story and serves as a skilled interpreter of the knotty dialect. His brisk reading keeps this comedic adventure moving at a thoroughly engaging clip.
