great characters, dark magic and mysterious environment .. perfect mix!

What about Elijah Alexander’s performance did you like?

The narrator brought the book to life for me … excellent mix of straight narration and regional accents … i can't image this read without invoking the local accents .. it just wouldn't be the same. Well done!
