A perfect pairing of text and narration shines in this magnificent blend of mythology and mystery. Jenna Lamia’s youthful voice lends credence to the listening experience, and her engaging delivery keeps the listener eagerly awaiting each chapter. Set in the time of the Vikings, Kirby’s book is rich in Norse mythology. As she tells her story, young Solveig sounds as if she is recounting a dream. Her words hang in the frosty air of the far North. As she moves smoothly between the characters, Lamia’s pacing and cadence are perfect for this mystery. Included are notes about Norse mythology as well as an author interview. J.K.R. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2011]
