Children Ages 10+ • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Imagine yourself a helpless orphan destined to serve others. Would you not struggle to find a position to grant you some measure of authority? Better still should it grant you profound power. So Corinna Stonewall becomes Folk Keeper of the city of Rhysbridge. As Corinna's folk record begins, and we encounter her stubborn, rapacious spirit, Griffin's narration sounds too cheerful for the vengeful words written by a girl desperately battling to keep the evil Folk at bay. Despite this inconsistency and the flawed voicing of Sir Edward, Griffin's sweet-voiced narration becomes a better match for Corinna as she evolves, struggling to learn the truth about her nature and encountering for the first time a person she can love. Despite some flaws, this winner of the Boston Globe Horn Book Award for Fiction is recommended. T.B. ALA Notable Recording 2001 © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
