Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Young Adult Young Adult • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Kirby Heyborne’s fine performance draws the listener into this time-travel tale that presents a new and unusual twist. Owen, an unassuming hero, is thrust into a world of suspended time. Although he is unaware of it, he is “The Navigator,” the central key who can turn the balance between the evil Harsh and the Resisters. As the story unfolds, Heyborne’s voice captures Owen’s dawning awareness of his life-and-death role. The cold force of the Harsh, the innocent but forceful power of the Resisters, and Owen’s emerging courage are all enhanced by the calm, intense narration. Heyborne’s tone and pacing also make a complex plot understandable. Listeners will want to know what challenge awaits The Navigator in a promised Book Two. L.D.H.
