Author Seanan McGuire narrates the fifth installment in her Wayward Children series, transporting listeners to a terrible world filled with monsters, vampires, and dark temptations. Jack's murderous sister, Jill, has hatched a chilling plan that may destroy their home world. Enlisting the support of her school friends, Jack embarks on a dangerous journey home, desperate to stop her sister before it is too late. McGuire's narration is serviceable, but she reads at such an accelerated pace that listeners may not be able to truly savor the lush beauty of her prose. She is most successful with dialogue, as she allows the characters' tenderness and tenacity to come through. Still, listeners may regret losing the opportunity to settle into this intoxicating and thought-provoking story. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2020]
