In the late 1800s, teen twins Alice and Lea are orphaned after their mother commits suicide and their father dies mysteriously. Living on an estate with their younger brother and maiden aunt, the sisters grow apart as their place in a supernatural prophecy is unveiled: One sister has the power to end the world and the other, to save it. Eliza Dushku has an appealingly husky voice, and she narrates with clarity and feeling. Her even-tempered performance keeps the listener engaged in the sketchily plotted tale. Occasional background music announces dramatic moments, and the purr of Dushku's voice carries listeners right to the cliffhanger ending.
