THE FIRE CHRONICLE The Books of Beginning, Book 2

by | Read by Jim Dale

Children Ages 8+ • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

Siblings Kate, Michael, and Emma, fresh from their inaugural quest, are back in the throes of time travel and adventure. Jim Dale, who is renowned for his robust characterizations of fantastical creatures, is in his element, enlivening the dwarfs, elves, dragons, and otherworldly beings encountered here. Dale’s pacing is exquisite as Kate is whisked to the past while Michael and Emma search for the second Book of Beginning in a mysterious and magical world. Dale’s voicing of the reluctant hero Michael especially shines as he journeys toward supreme sacrifice as keeper of the Book of Life. Listeners will clamor for the next title as a surprising discovery sets up the final installment. E.A.B. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2012]
