What the Critics Say

"Combining colorful characterizations, lots of fast-paced action, and a decided sense of menace, all leavened by a heavy dose of humor....this is entertaining fare, indeed." (Booklist)

Great Book, Not-So-Great Reading

I love the "Acorna's Children books, but the versions read by Ms. Lauren Davis were a waste of my money. Her voice is most suitable to little children's books in that she sounds like a child herself, but doesn't carry the characters in these books. Between the "little girl" quality and the mispronunciation of some words, the stories lose their enjoyment for me. I'm glad other versions are available and I'll buy them when I can afford them.
