Unusual but refreshingly different. Needs to be read in a quiet space without interruptions.

The author provides a disclaimer at the outset. It certainly helps a lot if one has read his two other books. The character, Auri, is introduced there. As a stand alone book, it might be strange and confusing.
I was disappointed when I saw that this was a short book in comparison to the epic tales that support it. After the 3 hours plus of narration, I was satiated.
I revelled in the glorious descriptions and word pictures. It isn’t often that one finds such colour and texture. Add to that Auri’s secret ways and internal language and you have a wonderfully weird and intense life of a girl in her own world. I loved each and every word. It took me some time to disconnect and return to reality. I believe this haunting story will stay with me for a long time.

Gripping tale

This is the second part of a trilogy. The story is strange, filled with unusual happenings and strange ways. It is wonderfully narrated. The voices are clear and distinctive - quite the accomplishment for such a long tale. The third part in this trilogy has not yet been published (May 2020) and I am already longing for the next part. It is such an epic tale that it is one I could listen to over & over. The best part was being able to experience it as an audiobook. It came to life in “glowing colours and many textures”. Nick Podehl, the Narrator, did an incredible job.

Incredible story, so well narrated

It takes a true storyteller to weave so much underlying emotion with so few emotional words used. The quiet and empty spaces leave one holding one’s breath.

I can’t recommend this audiobook highly enough. Although there is quite a bit of hockey talk, it is essential to the story. It is told in such a way that it rekindles a passion that might have been forgotten or overlooked.

The narration was the frosting on this particular cake. It brought the whole thing to life, giving it soul. I was disappointed when the story ended and I knew that this was a tale that had not only enlightened me, but had touched my heart.

This audiobook is beautifully narrated by Trevor himself. This means that every nuance and emotion is perfectly conveyed. It is a story that many are familiar with. Trevor, however, was blessed with an exceptional mother. She gave him her all, as only an enlightened mother can do. In many respects, this is a tribute to her.

Trevor’s mastery of storytelling shines through. Being able to hear the story told “out loud” adds colour and texture that reading wouldn’t be able to give. In short, I was blown away. Not only does the story touch my heart deeply, but I have become a huge fan of the medium of audiobooks.
