Children Ages 8+ • 9.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

In this first book of T.A. Barron's trilogy, a young boy, washed ashore and nearly dead, embarks on a quest to solve the mysteries of his true name and where he spent his earliest years. The imagery of water and waves, the powers of nature and the past, and the strength of tradition all cycle through this gripping story. With his Second Sight, Emrys explores the mythical land of Fincayra and discovers the Lost Treasures. Through Michael Cumpsty's skillful narration, the many characters of the saga are distinctly and vividly portrayed. While it can be difficult to imagine Emrys as a 12-year-old boy, Cumpsty delightfully gives voice to Shim, the small giant; the Grand Elusa , an all-knowing white spider; Stangmar, the dreaded ruler of the Shrouded Castle; Rhia, the leaf-covered and loyal companion; and Branwen, the sorrowful healer and mother. Listen and be wonderously transported to the mist-covered land of the ancients! A.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
