Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Candace Thaxton

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Narrator Candace Thaxton conjures up a world both familiar and hauntingly foreign in this adaptation of the Medusa myth. Milla's lonely and confined life is changed when charming Iris comes to live near her family's remote farm. When the rumored local curse of snakes and demons seems to take possession of Iris, Milla must fight to save her friend and her future. Thaxton's expert narration creates a feeling of timelessness, and the contemporary setting doesn't clash with the fantasy aspects of the story. Her portrayal of Milla is by turns wistful, sardonic, and firm in her resolve. She gives distinct voices to a largely female cast, including a deliciously shivery reptilian tone for the demon girls.
