"The faerie Magpie recaptures devils unknowingly released by humans. In this thrilling fantasy, she encounters the greatest devil yet, the Blackbringer. She will need all her courage, strength, and magical powers on a quest that will involve unraveling secrets, battling evil, and convincing an ancient to save the land he created. A first-rate performance by Davina Porter enhances the story and places listeners in its setting. Porter's rich and beautiful voice, as well as her pacing and cadence, carry the story along, drawing in listeners with well-rounded characters. In particular, her characterization of Magpie embodies both her magic and her strength. Listeners will be rooting for Magpie and her companions in this well-delivered fantasy. J.K.R.
