Pauline von Cant and her half-sister, Lucy Wickwright, escape from Castle Cant on a quest to destroy the gum trade that is at the center of their country's civil war. Intrigue and adventure abound as the girls unravel the truth while evading those who want to stop them. Kerin McCue skillfully narrates this far-ranging saga of a land and people dealing with civil war. His pace and timing allow the listener to appreciate the writing and wordplay. McCue gives each character a distinct voice and personality, ensuring that listeners quickly identify with the young protagonists and the motley band of allies who join them on their quest. Listeners leave the story with some new, memorable friends. J.K.R. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 07]
