Science Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

In an alternate nineteenth century, zombies, airships, earth-quaking machines, and frontier-style life are the norm in the Pacific Northwest. Young Zeke Wilkes is determined to clear his sullied family name by venturing into the deadly, walled-off city of Seattle. His mother, Briar, is determined to go after her boy and save him from himself. Kate Reading narrates from Briar’s point of view and Wil Wheaton, from Zeke’s. Reading’s narration is very mannered, her enunciation precise and clipped as she deftly portrays how tightly Briar holds onto her emotions. Wheaton gives a fun, energetic performance. He nails teenage Zeke’s enthusiasm, brio, and false courage. Wheaton growls, whispers, and spits out the dialogue of the villains and offers a gentle, sympathetic portrait of Briar.
