Shaun Taylor-Corbett movingly narrates this sequel to HEALER OF THE WATER MONSTER. Brian Young's use of his own family history and Navajo spiritual figures brings added dimension to this story. First, listeners meet Nathan, the new guardian of Dew, a young water monster who is learning traditional songs to create water for parched Phoenix. Taylor-Corbett perfectly contrasts the voices and personalities of damaged, elderly Yitoo and sweet, young Dew, who also loves to sing forbidden rock songs in English. Navajo words and chapter numbers add authenticity as Nathan and a companion seek help from ancient water monsters to learn who is stealing Phoenix's precious water. Listeners will appreciate the story's lyrical descriptions, legends, and surprising conclusion. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2024]
