After hearing the first episode, I thought it was just a re-tread of an earlier Klavan YA novel, but I hung on for the next hour's episode. And I haven't stopped since! Michael Knowles' narration is superb, and the story line is a real gripping yarn. I'm not certain what fictional category to place this story in, but it's a wonderful combination of suspense and fantasy, weaving the main character back and forth from the present to another world. The language is so descriptive, that the mind can visualize each scene as if watching a movie, which I understand is what Mr Klavan is hoping to happen. Absolutely loved it!
