Editorial Reviews

The first installment of Derek Benz and J. S. Lewis' Grey Griffin series follows sixth-grader Max Sumner and his three friends, whose lives in their "perfect and boring" Minnesota town get turned upside down when the nefarious goblins and witches featured in their favorite role-playing fantasy game suddenly spring to life and begin terrorizing their idyllic community.

This imaginative, phantasmagorical teenage fantasy is powered by the entrancing, shape-shifting quality of Erik Steele's performance; he enlivens depictions of treacherous kings and benevolent faeries with equal aplomb.

Publisher's Summary

Max Summer and his three best friends, Harley, Ernie, and Natalia - who form the secret club The Grey Griffins - seem to be the only people in their very normal Minnesota town to notice that strange things have started to happen. When creatures like goblins and fairies and unicorns, all characters from a card game the Grey Griffins play, begin to make appearances in Max's backyard, Max and his friends know something is terribly wrong. And it's up to them to stop the wicked creatures of the cards from destroying their town - indeed, their world!

Critic Reviews

"Erik Steele entices his listeners into this adventurous story....Steele offers an excellent portrayal of the children, their protectors, and their foes. He presents the four main characters and their personalities with equal flair and differentiation, and incorporates the secondary characters with verve." ( AudioFile)
