THE AWAKENING The Dragon Heart Legacy, Book 1

by | Read by Barrie Kreinik

Fantasy • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Barrie Kreinik's dynamic narration complements this fresh romantic adventure. Stuck in a rut and only in her 20s, Breen leaves Philadelphia after a financial windfall and travels to Ireland with best friend Marco. There she discovers not just family, but also a magical realm. For every question answered, many more arise as Breen follows her destiny, and this leaves listeners hungry for Book 2. Kreinik uses a light tone struck with awe to highlight Breen's wonderment. Marco's enthusiasm and bond with Breen are displayed by his bright voice peppered with "Hey, girl," which contrasts with Breen's mother's harsh, admonishing tone. The evolution of Breen's self-discovery is evident in her hesitant, questioning tone, which evolves into adamant, self-assured statements. Irish accents are melodic and accurate, thanks to Kreinik's range. A.L.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
