Nick Podehl is the perfect narrator for this young adult magical adventure that transports us back to the 80s! I can't wait to get my hands on the rest of the series!

William Wilde and the Necrosed by Davis Ashura, narrated by the sublime Nock Podehl, is a tremendously well-written and exciting story. Nick's performance confirms that he, once again, deserves the credit given him as one of the top narrators in fantasy today.
Fans of Rick Riordan, Suzanne Collins, James Dashner, and Brandon Mull will find a new home with The Chronicles of William Wilde. Those who loved Indiana Jones, the Goonies, and E.T. as kids will also get lost in this Urban Fantasy.
This story is magical. Both literally and figuratively. Ashura has managed to unfold an adventure to us that bridges the generational appeal, promising to delight middle-aged audiences all the way down to high school audiences, much the same way that STRANGER THINGS has done. As a 40-year-old, I found myself living in a nostalgic time through the story, with all the 80's references, while not being able to take the ear buds out as the plot sped along. The magic system is just being introduced, and we get to learn with the characters. For a while, I wasn't sure who was on whose side. With a fair amount of twists and discovery, hints of teenage love, and plenty of adventure, William Wilde and the Necrosed promises a rollercoaster of thrills to a wide audience. The characters feel like old friends from a long time ago . . . and some are, if you know Ashura's other works. You will not be disappointed.
