Fantasy • 14.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

James Langton narrates a gothic tale of dark magic and Victorian glamour. The Carnivale of Curiosities, one of London's most iconic traveling sideshows, is headed by the magical showman Aurelius Ashe. It's said Ashe can make any wish come true, but the veracity of the claim remains a close secret. Langton employs a gravelly timbre that complements the lyrical writing. His character voices are lively, dynamic, and engaging. He slips into each character, imbuing each with a distinct feel. As the story's tension ramps up, Langton maintains a sense of dread. Secrets, horrors, and magical elements crackle with promise as Langton's bewitching narration captures the ear. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2023]
