When presented with a character that is both beast and man, the challenge for the narrator is balancing and distinguishing the voices for both. Ron McLarty easily vaults over this hurdle with his ability to seamlessly shift from throaty growl to a smooth, cultured timbre. McLarty wears main character Reuben's voice like a second skin and gives deep tones to the “man wolves” that stalk the halls of the mansion at Nideck Point. The German accent McLarty gives the mysterious housekeeper is inauthentic, but he makes up for it by infusing raw emotion into the story as Reuben struggles to bridge the gap between his supernatural and human families. McLarty makes even the most rambling moments of the story palatable. E.E. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2014]
