Children Ages 10+ • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

A young human named Lucky must escape a dangerous planet and rely on aliens he has just met to help him find his estranged father. Narrator James Carcaterra's understated performance allows listeners to imagine Lucky's universe as he and his new companions race across the galaxy. They must try not to attract attention, especially as they enter the war zone of ongoing battle between humans and aliens. Carcaterra excels at voicing the dialogue and Lucky's inner thoughts, and his easygoing narration softens the story's tension, creating a comfortable balance for middle-grade listeners. PHOENIX is a good choice for family enjoyment because the audiobook can be accessed on several levels. It's both a straightforward action-adventure tale and a story of overcoming differences to form deep friendships. C.B.L. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
