As a novel, this is an engaging and well-written story about the way our past shapes who we are and the family ties that bind us. As an audiobook, though, there are times when it's disjointed and confusing. Narrators Shaun Grindell and Emma Powell create compelling voices for the main characters, Ruby, Shadow Boy, and Anna. They also breathe life into each of the supporting characters. However, the alternating points of view and shifting timelines can be difficult to follow, particularly if one is listening in shorter increments. The story itself is a dark fairy tale, skirting the lines between the real and the imaginary, life and death. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2017]
