Bridei, Broichan, and Tuala comprise this central trio whose lives are intertwined long ago in pre-Celtic Scotland. Listeners will be entranced by themes of magic, royal intrigue and betrayal, religion, and romance as Bridei comes of age to take the throne. Michael Page's fully voiced narration gives excellent gradations of pitch and tone that distinguish each character, including the transition of Bridei as he grows from an obedient child to a wise and mature adult. Music cues the beginning and end of each section, and narration is repeated at the start of each cassette or CD. Since this is Book One, THE DARK MIRROR introduces what promises to be a long and satisfying story. L.D.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
