Rain of the Ghosts is the first in Greg Weisman's series about a young girl, Rain Cacique, who discovers she has a mystery to solve, a mission to complete and, oh, yes, the ability to see ghosts. Welcome to the Prospero Keys (or as the locals call them, the Ghost Keys), a beautiful chain of tropical islands on the edge of the Bermuda Triangle. It's the last weekend before school starts, and Rain already feels trapped. She works at the bed and breakfast her parents own, making beds, serving breakfast, etc. And it feels to her like her entire life is going to consist of working for tourists on these islands. Sebastian Bohique - her maternal grandfather and the only person who ever makes Rain feel like she could do something important with her life - gives her the gift of an heirloom that's been in the family for 400 years. It's an armband, two gold snakes intertwined, clasping each other's tails in their mouths. But the armband brings gifts of its own: Rain can now see dead people. Starting with the Dark Man, a ghost determined to reveal the Ghost Keys' hidden world of mystery and mysticism, intrigue and adventure. Rain of the Ghosts is an unabridged full-cast recording of Weisman's first novel, with an amazing cast of 20 actors playing 30 roles, sound effects, and a full original musical score.
Cast: Thom Adcox, Ed Asner, Jeff Bennett, Steve Blum, Daniella Bobadilla, Jim Cummings, Elisa Gabrielli, Bryton James, Josh Keaton, Eric Lopez, Vanessa Marshall, Jacqueline Obradors, Gregg Rainwater, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Deborah Strang, Joel Swetow, Brittany Uomoleale, Jacob Vargas and Greg Weisman.
I've been a fan of Greg Weisman's for a while now, and this book lives up to the high standards he constantly sets for himself. The characters are full of richness and vivacity, the plot is engrossing, and as always Mr. Weisman strikes a great balance between realism and fantasy. The full cast of voice actors deserves special recognition. Mr. Weisman is a pleasure to listen to, and every voice actor brings the performance to life. The sound effects and music add the perfect touch to the performance. Congratulations Mr. Weisman on another great bit of fantasy!
I loved it, hope to hear more. Especially with Gregg Rainwater. Thank you. Very good
