Description

Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different-and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an outself. He grew up in the rambling old house, filled with dozens of cousins and aunts and uncles, all ruled by his father. Their home was isolated in the mountains of western Virginia, far from town, far from schools, far from other people. There are many secrets in the House, and many rules that Danny must follow. There is a secret library with only a few dozen books, and none of them in English-but Danny and his cousins are expected to become fluent in the language of the books. While Danny's cousins are free to create magic whenever they like, they must never do it where outsiders might see. Unfortunately, there are some secrets kept from Danny as well. And that will lead to disaster for the North family.

Professional reviews

"Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Janice Card balance two parallel narratives in this new series. In his deliciously deep baritone, Rudnicki narrates Danny North's story as he escapes his family of mages who want to kill him because he has the power to make gates, a forbidden skill. In a gentler voice, Card, the author's daughter, tells the story of Wad, another gate mage who is finding life in a castle much more complicated than he imagined, especially as he realizes he is an ancient being. Card's light, lively voice is a good match to tell the darker of the two narratives while Rudnicki keeps listeners engaged with the longer story. L.E. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
