Narrator Jayne Entwistle's characterizations anchor this Victorian fantasy. She begins with a convincing portrayal of fearful 13-year-old Annabel, who has been uprooted from her proper boarding school. After her mother leaves Annabel with two elderly aunties, Entwistle ably conveys their concern: Their niece is a "most magical girl," prophesied by aging magicians to vanquish evil. Soon that evil is revealed as Entwistle projects the menace of Mr. Angel and his dark magic. Entwistle's narration projects the thrill of dangerous adventures and Annabel's winding path to becoming a true heroine. S.W. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2016]
