Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Jeffrey Cummings

Young Adult Young Adult • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Jeffrey Cummings immerses listeners in the fantastical life of 19-year-old Finnikin, whose world was turned upside down 10 years earlier when the royal family was brutally murdered and the population scattered. Cummings dramatizes Finnikin’s passion in his dialogues with Evanjalin, the prophetic novice in his care. At the same time, Cummings conveys Evanjalin’s secretive, determined nature. Listeners will feel the powerful connection between these two characters in Cummings’s electric delivery. He develops the minor characters just as strongly and superbly projects the plot’s tension and themes of guilt and revenge. All these strengths add to the characterizations of the two protagonists and give verisimilitude to the portrait of a land being held in the grip of darkness and looking for redemption. S.W.
