Sixteen-year-old Matt Cruse, introduced in AIRBORN, lives, breathes, and dreams flying in sky ships. During an internship his captain discovers a ghost ship thought to contain great wealth. When the initial attempt to salvage her is unsuccessful, Matt returns to the Paris Airship Academy, but soon he sets off (with pirates on his tail) to try again. This full-cast recording is lively and suspenseful. David Kelly takes the lead as Matt, whom he plays as a somewhat young 16-year-old with an enthusiasm for adventure. He can be stricken by adolescent pangs of jealousy, but he has a cool head in moments of trouble. Other members of the cast are also strong and combine to present a good audiobook for family listening. J.E.M. 2009 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2008]
