Young Adult Young Adult • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

Author D.C. Pierson performs his own work. Tom Parking is plucked out of his very ordinary life and told he has a destiny: He will be the savior of an entire otherworldly kingdom. The problem is that the kingdom, which has no name, is not grand and glorious. In fact, it's rather primitive and, well, shabby. Pierson makes Tom sound like a high-school slacker more concerned with girls than saving a world—a reverse Harry Potter. He shifts effortlessly between numerous bizarre characters like the officious king of the place-with-no-name, the friendly idiot who helps Tom adjust, and a plethora of weird animals that make strange sounds. Transporting the listener to a magical world he creates with skillful acting and vocal fireworks, Pierson makes the imaginary seem real. M.S. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2014]
