There's something familiar about this magical tale, and it's the undeniably Harry Potter-ish elements. Erec and his friends use remote controls instead of wands and drink cloud creams instead of butter beer. They also have magic tutors, shop for memory implants, and enjoy instant travel. Narrator Simon Jones serves up a voice feast fit for any palate. In fact, his reading is the ingredient that makes this elixir bubble. His cast of characters rivals Jim Dale's Potter world. With tone and accent, Jones makes the gnomes cute, the hydras sweet, and the sometimes-petulant boy hero likable. Listeners who missed Book One will be scrambling to catch up. But, given time, Jones will make them hail this boy who would be king. M.M.C. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
