Fantasy • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Rose McPhilemy's stellar performance underscores the dual sides of magic--delight and danger--in this immersive historical fantasy. Having lived her whole life on the hidden island of Hy-Brasil, Biddy is eager to explore the world beyond. But when her caretakers, the mage Rowan and his rabbit familiar Hutchincroft, open up a decades-old magical battle, Biddy gets more than she hoped for. She encounters mysterious creatures, finds power in unlikely places, and learns that the key to everything lies in her heart. Biddy must decide whom to trust and whether restoring magic to the world is worth the costs. McPhilemy blends Rowan's rough Irish accent with Hutchincroft's clear British lilt to create a unique voice just for Biddy. It's this nuanced combination that makes McPhilemy's performance truly unforgettable. A.A.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2023]
