Narrator Nicola Barber gives a delightful performance of this gripping fantasy filled with magic, science, and dragons. Barber's youthful voices are clear and unique, and her infectious energy transports listeners to a beautifully imagined steampunk-like world. Thirteen-year-old Paisley is assigned her destiny, but it is not one she wants. With the help of her brother, Dax; her mother's lab assistant; and others, Paisley tries to defeat the Dark Dragon and outrun fate itself. As Barber tells the story from two contrasting points of view, her accents and intonations are on point. She skillfully balances the Dark Dragon's sinister tones with the vulnerability of his lackey, Roach, and maintains Paisley's fierceness.
