VALIANT A Modern Tale of Faerie

by | Read by Renee Raudman

Young Adult Young Adult • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Runaway Valerie is homeless in New York City and squatting on an abandoned subway platform. Her living situation is utterly safe compared to her entanglements in the mysterious murders of faeries and her involvement in a burgeoning romance with a fey healer who considers himself a monster. Renee Raudman gives a laudable performance on many counts. Her vocal variations go beyond differentiating gender to make aural distinctions between supernatural and human characters. Raudman's huskiness enhances the darkness and mystery that permeate the story. Her even pacing, clarity, and character distinctions are crucial to help listeners navigate the complexity of the murders and fey politics.
