THE MAGICIAN OF SAMARKAND

by | Read by Andrew Sachs

Children Ages 8+ • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

Traveling the Silk Road from Egypt to China and back, Zohak Ali wreaks havoc as he ruthlessly amasses a personal fortune and crafts a magical book of menacing spells. When he arrives in Samarkand, he builds his Blue Palace and begins to set yet another plan into place. Then he meets his match in Anahita. Neither disfigurement nor a miniscule size can deter Anahita from steadfast devotion to family and those who treat her kindly. The rich palate of darkest evil, unlikely animal helpers, heartbroken families, and a wily heroine provides Andrew Sachs the opportunity to display his prodigious talent. His full-bodied performance juxtaposes the raging Zohak Ali with an alluring Anahita. Enjoy this fast-paced adventure! A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
