Goblins, magic, and faeries all play a leading role in this complex, engaging story about Maddy Smith, a girl from a different sort of world with a different sort of talent. Born with a "ruinmark" on her hand, Maddy learns from the strange wanderer One-Eye that she is very special and is in control of something much larger than herself. Irish actress Sile Bermingham is well suited to her role as narrator and voices all characters, male and female, with great success. The story is recorded in full, resulting in a lengthy presentation, but Bermingham's sense of timing and drama immerse the listener so completely in Maddy's journey that time disappears until this fantastic tale is complete.
