Narrator Kirby Heyborne is in his element as he treats listeners to an audio adventure that abounds with expertly paced escapades, colorful accents, and snarky humor. Twelve-year-old Prosper Redding thinks he's the only unexceptional, unlucky, downright forgettable Redding, until he discovers that a 4,000-year-old demon who is intent upon annihilating his entire family is living inside him. Heyborne captures Prosper's emotional growth from a sad and aimless boy to a bravely determined preteen as he confronts the demon within. From sniveling hobgoblins to resolute yet fragile cousin Nell, Heyborne's command of character voices is exceptional. The verbal sparring between Prosper and the fiend Alastor is wickedly funny and perfectly timed, sure to make listeners of all ages laugh out loud. S.A.H.
