Narrator Kate Reading puts in another monstrously enjoyable performance in this Athena Club installment. Returning are all the main characters from the original—whom Reading ensures are quickly recognizable. Catherine Moreau, the main protagonist, tells the story with numerous mid-sentence interruptions from other characters: usually Diana Hyde, who is dissatisfied with her portrayal, and Mary Jekyll, the catalyst of Book 1, who is concerned that Catherine will turn off listeners with her continual promotion of that volume (“at bookshops everywhere”). Reading honors the story’s mainly lighthearted and charming tone, despite it being about the attempted rescue of one Lucinda Van Helsing, daughter of the famous vampire hunter from DRACULA. Reading keeps all the subplots and associated characters spinning toward the next installment. K.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
