AudioBook Review: Blending a touch of steampunk into this story, Alexander seems to hit the perfect blend of pace and suspense, with a bit of darkness for tension to please a reader or listener.  While I might not be inclined to use this book as a bedtime read – it is the perfect companion for those children wanting something a little darker and scary: I can imagine this story influencing the ghost stories told in later years.  I really like Kaile, her frustrations with the ordinary are completely relatable, and her struggle to solve the flute’s mystery and save her world are cleverly crafted and easy to follow.  Other characters are as carefully constructed and introduced: with little details that foreshadow their upcoming place in the story, good or evil.   Beautifully narrated by the author, his voice is the perfect accompaniment to the story.  Small distinctions in tone and pacing to illustrate different characters, and his pacing and clarity are perfection.  Additionally, there is a discernible distinction in his tone as important plot points, hesitations and even points to remember are presented, a unique touch to self-narrated works that is often absent from other forms of audio.  This is the second in the trilogy, but the world and characters are so well defined, described and presented that having exposure to the first is not necessary: although this will encourage you to seek out the first book, it is that good.  Both parents and children will enjoy this: never clichéd, with surprising and unique creatures  this well-paced story will demand your attention until the end.  I received the audio cd’s from Simon & Schuster via AudioBook Jukebox for purpose of honest review for the Heard Word.  I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
