Publisher's Summary

From Garth Stein, the New York Times best-selling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain, Audible presents Raven Stole the Moon-in audio for the first time, and beautifully narrated by Jennifer Van Dyck.

Jenna Rosen returns to the place in Alaska where her young son, Bobby, disappeared without a trace two years before. Jenna is determined to lay to rest the aching mystery of his death. But ancient legends may have had a hand in Bobby's fate, forcing Jenna to sift through her own Native American ancestry to uncover the truth.

Wrangell, Alaska, offers Jenna little comfort beyond the constant and tender attention of Eddie, a local fisherman. When ancient legends begin to suggest a frightening new possibility about Bobby's fate, Jenna digs deeper into the menacing forces at work in the wilderness. A Tlingit shaman named Dr. David Livingstone warns Jenna not to disturb the legendary kushtaka-soul stealing predators that stalk a netherworld between land and sea, the living and the dead. But Jenna is desperate for answers, and she appeals to both Livingstone and Eddie to help her sort fact from myth, and face the unthinkable possibilities head-on.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Garth Stein? Why or why not?

    Yes


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Van Dyck?

    I don't know. Jennifer's narration of this was annoying. Stac·ca·to would be the best way of describing her style.

    "Engrossing story"

    I loved this book. It seems to encompass several genres-fantasy, mystery, romance, adventure. The main character, Jenna, has lost herself after an accident that killed her little boy. She runs away to the Alaska town where she lived as a girl, leaving her husband and parents worried about her. She finds many things and many people. You need to read the book to find out if she finds what she was looking for.

    The audio book was narrated expertly by Jennifer van Dyke.

    "Shape Shifting "

    The spiritual world, which the novel revolves around, involves spirits which are 'shape-shifters', which I did not note in other reviews. I found it hard to keep my interest in the novel towards the end, as it shifted more from reality to the super-natural.
