    On the eve of their last Christmas with their dying mom, two squabbling siblings find themselves trapped in a magical underground kingdom where everything and everybody is made of glowing minerals and sparkling crystals infused with light. With their house about to be foreclosed on, 13-year-old Maggie is hurt and angry at being so helpless; she doesn't believe in anything she can't touch or see. Her nine-year-old brother, Jesse, lives in hope; he believes in the need to believe.

    Where does Chrystallia and the Source of Light rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was my first audio book. Loved it! To be able to close your eyes and listen, letting your imagination envision the adventure as it unfolds. It was excellent!


    What other book might you compare Chrystallia and the Source of Light to and why?

    I've heard the comparison to Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland. The search for answers and a way home along with the amazing creatures you've never seen before.


    What does P.M. Glaser bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    OMG!!! PMG!!! I could listen to that voice all day! I don't know how to describe it. It's so calm and soothing and then all the different accents with the different characters. I just couldn't stop.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Asking "What is?" not, "What if?". That really stuck with me for my own reasons. (long story). And the idea that you CAN get past the fear and it'll be OK : )


    Any additional comments?

    The kids reminded me of my own, love each other, hate each other, but protective 'til the end no matter what.
