"In this companion book to GOBLIN SECRETS, author William Alexander narrates his heroine Kaile's venture away from the steampunk city of Zombay. When she plays a bone flute given to her by a goblin, a dizzying series of events is set in motion--separation from her own shadow, expulsion from her home, and a quest to find the original owner of the flute. Can Kalie save herself, her shadow, and the bridge that holds Zombay together and become a musician? Once again, Alexander's narration is full of varied speeds, drawn-out hesitancies, emphatic pronouncements, and light, breezy cadences--all underscoring Kaile's spunk, desires, and drive. Alexander sets a fast clip and creates distinctive supporting characters, especially Shade, Kaile's shadow. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
