Narrator Will Watt enchants listeners with this rich performance. In an urban-fantasy world, Stephen has practiced magic all his life, yet he still feels he's getting nowhere. Now he's learned that his absent mother is part of a powerful magical family of which he may be an heir. Furthermore, friends and enemies in House Ashford have taken notice of him. Despite his undistinguished backstory, Stephen is a quirky individual who seems destined for greatness. Watt delivers this point well; his elegant cadence creates a strong presence as Stephen learns more about his talent and the mysteries of magic. Watt's ability to fluidly shift from character to character during dialogue is excellent. G.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
