Narrator Dani Martineck creates a passionate and determined voice for Callie, who seeks to find true acceptance for themself and their friends in a world that is reluctant to change. Just as their homeland, Helston, takes steps to offer magic and fighting opportunities to all, a battle with neighboring Dunmoor causes progress to halt, and even move backward. Martineck captures Callie's growing frustration as obstacles keep standing in the way of their happiness. Listeners are treated to an introduction read by author Esme Symes-Smith, which adds a nice personal touch. Adventure fans and general listeners alike will enjoy this fantastical tale, which reflects the struggles for acceptance faced by so many in our own world.
