It's hard to imagine a better way to enjoy this historical fantasy than through the expert narration of Jamie MacKenzie. Twelve-year-old Jake is an orphan who lives on the streets of Victorian London. He's recently discovered he can see ghosts and levitate objects--handy skills for a pickpocket. But suddenly he finds himself being chased down by sinister strangers and learns he's the long-lost heir to an aristocratic dynasty. MacKenzie smoothly portrays multiple characters with a variety of British, Irish, and Scots accents. The frenzied eagerness of the greedy "arachno-sapiens," the indignant squabbling of the Newgate prison ghosts, and the simpering voice of the sea witch give this audiobook performance a three-dimensional effect.
