by | Read by Whitney Dykhouse, Jake Mate

Young Adult Young Adult • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Narrators Whitney Dykehouse and Jake Mate portray Rachel Cartland and Samuel Bold, aspiring paleontologists whose fathers are famous in the field and bitter rivals. Oppel's layered mystery features a strong sense of place and two vibrant young scientists. Dykehouse and Mate bring intensity, spirited characterizations, and fresh energy to their performances. Their pacing keeps the listener's adrenaline high as the story unfolds and makes the young protagonists as engaging as their fathers are unlikable. This audiobook is more adult in theme and content than some of Oppel's other work, and some background knowledge of the eighteenth century would aid listeners in understanding the world of this story. Recommended for fans of dinosaurs, Westerns, and star-crossed lovers. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
