Children Ages 8+ • 7.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Chloe Dolandis finds all the lyrical rhythms in this magical yarn. Gussy's role as apprentice Protector of her desert town is put to the test when Grandpa Widow leaves on sudden business. Dolandis gives just the right twang and optimistic grit to Gussy as she tries to perform the rites and mysteries that keep the Great Doom outside the village gates. Doubts fill Gussy's mind after she breaks the rules, letting a lost girl past the gates in the middle of a storm and the Doom begins to crop up in her neighbors' homes and shops. Ritual and belief are tested in the ensuing battle between good and evil that blows open the town's darkest secrets. S.T.C. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
