Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Toby Stephens

Children Ages 10+ • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

In this series debut, set during the Bronze Age in ancient Greece, 12-year-old Hylas is on the run in desperate search of his sister. At the same time, a ruthless band of warriors known as Crows is set on destroying all Outsiders. Rich in historical detail, this harrowing story of survival and intrigue, complete with a runaway princess and an empathic dolphin, is brought to life with the husky, low tones of British actor Toby Stephens. Stephens excels at capturing emotional tension, expertly pitching his voice and measuring his pace to draw the listener close or to signal danger. His impeccable enunciation helps listeners feel completely at home in the ancient world. A.S. Winner of AudioFIle Earphones Award © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2013]
