With quick pacing that never slows, polished narrator Joy Osmanski portrays 12-year-old Korean-American Lia Park in this action-packed adventure filled with magic and mystery. As Lia and her best friend, Joon, prepare for their IMA (International Magic Agency) exam, Lia's parents are kidnapped by an ancient and vengeful sorceress named Gaya. This development sends Lia and Joon on a quest for a powerful jewel that can turn back time. Osmanski's performance gives distinctive voices to others and always keeps Lia's voice filled with wonder as she and listeners learn on the go. Korean history, culture, food, and words are sprinkled throughout. Listeners will enjoy this fascinating story about family and self-discovery. There's even a surprise at the end.
