Publisher's Summary

Although she's an orphan in indentured servitude, 16-year-old Jennifer Strange is pretty good at her job of managing the unpredictable crew at Kazam Mystical Arts Management. She already solved the Dragon Problem, avoided mass destruction by Quarkbeast, and helped save magic in the Ununited Kingdoms. Yet even Jennifer may be defeated when the long-absent Mighty Shandar makes an astonishing appearance and commands her to find the Eye of Zoltar - proclaiming that if she fails, he will eliminate the only two dragons left on earth.

How can a teenage non-magician outdo the greatest sorcerer the world has ever known? But failure is unacceptable, so Jennifer must set off for the mysterious Cadir Idris in the deadly Cambrian Empire - a destination with a fatality index of 50 percent.

With the odds against them, will Jennifer and her traveling companions ever return to the Kingdom of Snodd?

    "Good Fforde"

    I started this book fearing the third book in the series may have gone a bit soft (as some of the late Thursday Next books seem stretching). It seemed like some rapidly repeated schtick but that ended up being the reestablishment of the continued story line. The book then quickly shifted to good fresh Fforde story telling. Always inventive and fun with plenty for the mind to chew on. Narration is as good as previous Dragon Slayers. Good use of accents and voices.

    "Jasper Fforde never disappoints me"

    I am utterly entertained and always sad when the book is done. His wit is priceless and he keeps me chuckling as I drive to and from work. I am sure it is concerning to those driving on the roads with me.

    "Another fun Jasper Fforde book"

    This is another fun book in the Chronicles of Kazam series, full of strange characters, unexpected twists and enjoyable silliness.

    "Another Ffordian Treat"

    I always enjoy Jasper Fford's silly stories. My only complaint about this is that the narrator's voice sounded too old for the character she was reading. She would have been better suited for the voice of Tuesday Next.

    "Good for family"

    I listened to this with my husband and our two sons eight and 13 years old. As with the first two books in the series, we all enjoyed it. Can't wait for the 4th book!

    "wonderfully made story love the characters"

    the narrator's female voices could get a little grating
    but hey who am I to criticize?
    I can't do all those voices myself !
    just that I had to go in the other room because the princess and once magnificent boo's high voices were bugging my husband and son.
    I was enjoying the story too much to care.

    Story
    "He's hit his stride with this one"
    What made the experience of listening to The Eye of Zoltar the most enjoyable?

    This series was Fforde's first foray into fantasy (jeez, how alliterative, hahaha).
    Anyway, the first 2 books felt a little awkward, but here he has really started to embrace the genre. There are his funny & brilliant touches (a magical tent that swears at itself as it sets itself up) but also some really beautiful fantasy imagery. Mythical beasts, majestic mountains, bizarre tribal rituals, and of course lots of magic. Great series for kids or adults.


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

    No but she is excellent.
