Publisher's Summary

When 13 year-old Penelope Gilbert accidentally transforms into a stapler during math class, she's sure she's going crazy. But she's not imagining the men in black suits now patrolling the halls at school, nor is she imagining the new substitute teacher who orders the class to take a special new test. A test that requires blood. Hunted for her powers, and torn from the life she knows, Penny is swept up into a world in the clouds where magic meets machine and pirates rule the sky.

Great for Kids and Young Adults

This was a good book with an interesting storyline. If you have kids anywhere from elementary school to early high school, they will probably enjoy this book. Even as an adult, I still enjoyed it. This would be a great book to play on a long car ride for the whole family.

Azure is a parallel world to Earth that can be reached by magical tunnels. Having been taken over by an evil King wanting to control all of the world's magic, some people have hidden their children on Earth for their safety, but nothing stays hidden forever...
Penelope is discovered and sent to the King's dungeons. It's up to Penelope to find a way for her and others to escape.

As I said this book was worth the listen. Kids who have enjoyed books like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe will like this book as well.

The narrator was also very good. I gave 5 stars, but would give a 4.5 if possible for just a few small parts of the narration that threw me off. Otherwise, the narration was top-notch.

I requested and received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.
