Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Claudia Black

Children Ages 10+ • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Goldie Roth knows she has to follow her destiny and become the Fifth Keeper. But first she has to rescue her friends, Bonnie and Toadspit, who have been kidnapped in this second book of the Keepers trilogy. Narrator Claudia Black provides a reading full of accents, rougher for the people Goldie encounters in the city of Spoke and more refined for those from her home city. Black captures all the excitement and action, adjusting her pace to reflect Goldie’s state of mind. The most memorable aspect of Black’s reading is the growl she uses for the voice of the cat that befriends Goldie on her quest. The cliff-hanger ending will leave listeners anticipating the conclusion and hoping Black will be the one reading it. E.N.
