    Even though ­thirteen-­year-­old Marcus Kanenas is confined to a wheelchair, he sees himself as a survivor and a dreamer. In fact, his favorite dream is of a world far away, a world where magic is as common as air, where animals tell jokes, and where trees beg people to pick their fruit. He even has a name for this place - Farworld. When Marcus magically travels to Farworld, he meets Kyja, a girl without magic in a world where spells, charms, and potions are everywhere, and Master Therapass, a master wizard who has kept a secret hidden for 13 years, a secret that could change the fate of two ­worlds.

    What did you love best about Water Keep?

    Mr. Savage has combined good story telling with well developed characters who have an interesting problem to overcome even though Kaisha and Marcus are only 10 years old.


    What other book might you compare Water Keep to and why?

    Take a pinch of Harry Potter, add a dash of Leven Thumps, and a smidge of Enders Wiggin, mix them all together and you might be close to Farworld.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Wright’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time to hear Mark Wright.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    What made the experience of listening to The Lost Gate the most enjoyable?

    Great original plot and storyline. I enjoyed the fact that the main story was happening right here on earth in current day America as opposed to some other world. And yet the other fantasy world exists in the book as well I a concurrent plot line.


    What other book might you compare The Lost Gate to and why?

    This storyline is quit unique among fantasy novels. I don't have a good title to which I'd compare this book.


    Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Janice Card ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was first listen to these two readers.


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

    Danny realizes that the Silvermans are his real parents because they actually gave him love and cared fork him. His own parents were too caught up family politics to be there for him.
