Publisher's Summary

Shipwrecked on a legendary island, how can a witch rescue her boyfriend if she can't even phone home?

Kat is a nervous wreck waiting for her boyfriend's first visit to her Arctic island home. He doesn't show up, so she's sure he's given her the brushoff. When she learns he's disappeared, she sets out on a mission to find him. Things go wrong from the start. Kat is thrown overboard during a violent storm, while her brother and his girlfriend are captured by a mutant island tribe.

The mutants hold the girlfriend hostage, demanding the teens recover the only thing that can make the mutants human again - the magical Midnight Oil. Mustering every bit of her Wiccan magic, Kat rises to the challenge. She invokes her magical skills, learns to fly an ultralight, meets a legendary sea serpent, rescues her boyfriend, and helps a friendly air spirit win the battle against her spiteful sibling. On top of it all, she's able to recover the Midnight Oil and help the hapless mutants in the nick of time.

    Story
    "At Sea with Kat and Rune"
    What made the experience of listening to Midnight Oil the most enjoyable?

    Hearing the characters I had come to like while reading the book brought to life by the narrator


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Midnight Oil?

    There were three: the memorial service for Kat's father; her meeting with Grrk, the disemvowelled (you'll have to listen to the book to figure that one out) castaway, and Rune's introduction to the ultralight.


    What does Lisa Baarns bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms Baarns has a very pleasing voice, and she uses it expertly to give each character a distinctive personality.


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

    The memorial service for Kat's father early in the book was particularly well done.


    Any additional comments?

    I particularly enjoy the artful and mostly humorous blending of ancient tradition and folklore with aspects of the modern world such as the witches riding both broomsticks and ultralights and the trolls and their snowmobiles. The fact that the snowmobiles are sold by the fat elf up north who runs a dealership in the off season makes it that much better. Also, it is refreshing to meet a heroine who uses her head to get herself out of mishaps rather than waiting for someone to do it for her.
