Christian Rodska has absolutely charmed the ears off this reviewer! From the moment Sebastian is selected as apprentice to the mysterious High Priest of Ora and the incorrigible young man is enfolded into the temple world of wisdom, indulgences, and scheming mobster activity, Rodska misses not a beat. He roars with the frustration of Sebastian's tutor; "mother hens" with great fuss as Sebastian's temple caretaker; typifies the dopey gangster; and floozies with the best as Honey is duped by detective Sebastian. As Sebastian's exasperated sister and absent-minded family members, Rodska helps Sebastian see the shortsightedness of his pleasure-seeking ways. This engaging story has a memorable narration.
