©2008 R.L. LaFevers; (P)2009 Audible, Inc.
A children's author R. LaFevers is not. And trust me when I say this is meant as the most highest compliment. This book transcends the boundary of age and can entertain and educate on all levels. I highly recommend this book for those die hard Harry Potter fans and see this as the next big hit. Can't wait to get the next book.
Funny, educational, absorbing
The climax where Theodosia is facing the Serpents of Chaos in the pyramid.
I like good children's books, they usually have a level of humour that adults pick up . This one is just beautiful.
This book is the first of four. It seemed to start out slow, and I was not sold on it at all. By the end of the book I had overcome some of my early reservations, and was willing to give the rest of the series a shot. It gets progressively better, and is increasingly charming throughout! By the third book it really seemed as though the author was hitting her stride. I highly recommend it.Moreover: What gives, Audible?? Book four has been out for years, and there's no audiobook? Please, please, please get on it!
Really excellent performance, exciting to listen to, and does all the voices really well. But taking 1 star off due to some misprounced words, which was really annoying.
I'm a retired retail exec and have taken up my love of quilting as a retirement vocation. I devour audiobooks as I sew. Love it. Picture is of me and my BFF, Bill. 2013
I guess I should have known better, it being a children's book! Listened for 1 1/2 hrs and saw no reason to go on. The thick English accent was almost undecipherable.
I had struggled in the past to get into the actual book but the audio version was the perfect alternative for me. The narrator voice was flawless and really brought alive the main character in my mind as the story unfolded. From a little girl voice to adult was a smooth transition. I know Theodosia now and look forward to listening to more adventures in the 2nd book and beyond. I'm hooked now.
"what a find this was"
yes the story is excellent and told in an intelligent way to its target audience whom many books patronize. The language and the decidedly odd heroine are a pleasure to read, but ms parrys performance is stellar I must say
Maybe the wardstone chronicles which also feature a distinctive heroine Alice, and don't talk down to the young audience
What an amazing voice she has! The narration is just brilliant. The story is very exciting but leaves few surprises for a 30'something such as myself but for younger listeners I think it will keep them on the edge of their seat for the whole journey from beginning to end.
I love it. I like the idea of black market and the tombs. I think that it's the best book ever!👍💞
