An impressive follow up to the first book in the Ward Stone Chronicles. The tension never lets up throughout the entire story. Truly gripping.
After buying the first story to listen to on a long car journey with my teenage sons, they begged me to buy the second one. It was no less gripping and magical than the first having all the family hooked to find out what was going to happen next. Narrated by Will Thorp (not the same person who narrated the first) took some getting used to, he did an excellent job.
