    Prue McKeel’s life is ordinary. At least until her brother is abducted by a murder of crows and taken to the Impassable Wilderness, a dense, tangled forest on the edge of Portland. No one’s ever gone in – or at least returned to tell of it. So begins an adventure that will take Prue and her friend, Curtis, deep into the Impassable Wilderness. There they uncover a secret world in the midst of violent upheaval - a world full of warring creatures, peaceable mystics, and powerful figures with the darkest intentions.

    If you could sum up Wildwood in three words, what would they be?

    Fantastical, lyrical, gripping


    What did you like best about this story?

    The concept of another world nestled in reality


    What didn’t you like about Amanda Plummer’s performance?

    Way too distracting; her voice has an odd quality to it that I can see might be considered a match for this uniqu tale but I found it to detract from the story as I found myself thinking about her voice and wondering why she made certain inflection choices rather than the story she was telling.

    The year is 1453, and the end of the world is closer than ever. As Luca and Isolde continue their journey, their attraction grows with each passing day. Even as they try to remain focused on the mysteries they’ve been ordered to investigate, the tension between them builds. Their budding, illicit relationship is put on hold when a boy, Johann, and his army of children arrive in town. Johann claims to have divine orders to lead the children across Europe to the Holy Land, and the townspeople readily accept his claims. Luca wants to believe, but his training tells him to question everything...but when Johann’s prophecy begins to come true, Luca wonders if they have finally stumbled upon a real miracle.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Story good enough to pass the time on the road, but very disappointed in the new narrator. Loved the guy who read the first in the series, he brought depth and humor to the characters. The narrator of book 2, however, has limited range & specifically portrays the female characters as vapid airheads with little intelligence. Perhaps this wouldn't have been so apparent if the book 1 narrator wasn't so good.


    Would you recommend Stormbringers to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not as good as other Philippa Gregory tales but an admirable stab at something different.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicola Barber’s performances?

    Nope


    Do you think Stormbringers needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Meh. I would probably listen to it but also wouldn't miss if it didn't happen.
