Publisher's Summary

Gray Hawk of Terrapin is a heart-wrenching YA fantasy by Moss Whelan that introduces Melanie (Mool) Thames. 

Ever since her father's death, Mool has been talking with an imaginary green lion named Inberl. When Mool's mysterious uncle gets sick, she and her mother take the train from Vancouver, Canada, to the inner world of Terrapin, where Inberl is arrested because he's looking for Gray Hawk. 

Springing into action, Mool sets out to rescue Inberl. Mool's know-it-all cousin, Olga, helps track down family friend Parshmander, who might know how to save Inberl. They corner Parshmander at home, where they overhear mention of Gray Hawk, but the girls are captured and interrogated. 

Upon release, Mool feels success when she sees a secret map, finds a hidden bridge, and crosses it with Olga. On the other side of the bridge, they find a secret city that keeps Terrapin at war. 

Prepare yourself for a wrenching journey laced with evil, chronicling histories of cruelty, kidnapping, and false imprisonment in search of meaning and justice.

a good YA fantasy story

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an interesting and engaging story. It is geared towards a younger audience, but it was still enjoyable. The narration was really well done. He really brought the story to life. Definitely worth checking out if you like a good fantasy story.

Fantastical

This is the first book I’ve read/listened to by this author.
The publisher’s summary is good. This book is reminiscent of Alice through the Looking Glass. I like the silly nonsensical stuff. I did however wonder why a girl that talks to so many imaginary things had a hard time believing Terrapin and the things in it were possible. I’d think a girl like her would have been full of wonder and relief this world existed.

This is the first book I’ve listened to by this narrator and I would listen to another. Scott Berrier gave each character an individual voice. He read the conversations with varying cadences and personalities, but the in between story was read with a “monotone” cadence. As a result I found I missed stuff and had to focus more to understand what was happening since many things in the story were silly and nonsensical.

There are no explicit sex scenes, excessive violence or swearing.
