Description

The winner of three Kay Snow Writing Awards, Laura Whitcomb pens a dark and fabulous tale sure to capture the imagination of fantasy fans everywhere. In the role of death escort, a Fetch is not supposed to step from Heaven back to Earth. A Fetch is not supposed to fall hopelessly in love with a mortal either. But Calder is a Fetch like no other. And when his actions land him amid the clash and clang of the Russian Revolution, he sets off a chain of events with dire consequences for both the living and the dead.

Professional reviews

"Calder is a Fetch, a death escort who helps the dying along their journey from Earth to Heaven. When he falls in love with a woman who is attending a dying child, he makes the fateful decision to join the world of the living, thereby upsetting the balance between Heaven and Earth and unleashing chaos he must then undo. Jack Garrett does a fine job narrating this richly written but somewhat confusing fantasy, which takes place during the Russian Revolution. His pacing carries the plot along, and his tone matches the heady subject matter. Garrett's understated narration allows the listener to focus on the plot twists and richly described settings. Subtle vocal characterizations for the main characters help distinguish their interactions with others along the round-the-world and cross-world journeys they take. J.K.R.
