Review
  • Narrator Cassandra Morris's clear, youthful voice is well matched to the character of smart and resourceful Alice. In the wake of her father's disappearance, she's sent to a mysterious house with a dangerous library. Morris's high voice is tinged with subversive humor, and her ability to drop subtle vocal clues while narrating enhances the ominous and suspenseful moments of this fantastical mystery. With a calculated pace, she unfolds this tense story, and her depth and range truly come into play in her characterizations of supernatural creatures, oddly secretive household inhabitants, and portentous cats. This work is an excellent kickoff to a promising series, and Morris illuminates its world beautifully. K.S.B. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
  • Gr 5 – 8 — Following the disappearance of her father, whom she believes has met with foul play from a fairy named Vespidian, Alice Creighton is living with her mysterious uncle, Geryon. A talking cat leads her into the forbidden library against her uncle's orders. Alice quickly discovers a whole new world of creatures inside the books. To survive, she must harness the power from the creatures and make it her own. After learning she is a Reader, she agrees to become Geryon's apprentice. Throughout her adventures, Alice never loses hope that she'll learn the truth about what happened to her father. Wexler incorporates familiar themes in a fresh, new fantasy world. He delivers imaginative characters and action-packed story lines. Cassandra Morris narrates with perfect timbre and inflection. The transition between character voices is seamless. VERDICT This audiobook is recommended for fans of Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland .—Alice Davidson, Indianapolis, IN --Alice Davidson (Reviewed June 1, 2015) (School Library Journal, vol 61, issue 6, p65)
