Electric tension full of suspense

Would you listen to The Spirit: Awakening again? Why?

This is an enjoyable fantasy world full of a variety of magical creatures. There are elves, dwarves, ogres, talking animals. The passages are highly descriptive, which helped me to get a good picture of Adele's world . There is plenty of action, especially with princess Adele is being tested to see if she really cares for her kingdom and is willing to fright for it. I liked the inner wisdom voice narration of Adele " It was as if she had a 6th sense an inner awareness of the feelings of others."

Who was your favorite character and why?

Harper the Wolf/Dog is my favorite character because he is a reflection of Adele other self. and he can change shapes. There is a bond between them that going deeper than surface appearances.

Which character – as performed by Matt Thurston – was your favorite?

Adele is my favorite because she has a lot of spunk and courage. And I liked the way she grew from a young girl of eleven, into her true strong self as the story progressed.
