Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Pete Cross

Children Ages 8+ • 4.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrator Pete Cross makes magic of his own in Anderson’s newest fantasy for middle-grade listeners. Cross imbues a teen named Clay with youthful sincerity and awe as he adopts a stray elf-hound who shows him how to cross over into a magical world of dukes and ladies, owl men, and wyrms. Cross gives each character a unique voice and energy level. Intensity ranges from the rapid-fire speech of know-it-all sister DiRossi as she berates Clay to the thoughtful, deep voice of the Giant as he imparts ancient wisdom and the calm, sincere tone of the owl boy, Amos, who saves Clay’s life and returns him home safely. This unlikely friendship during the pandemic changes Clay forever. S.D.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2023 Best Audiobook © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2023]
