Description

Publisher Marketing: Alistair Cleary is the kid who everyone trusts. Fiona Loomis is "not" the typical girl next door. Alistair hasn't really thought of her since they were little kids until she shows up at his doorstep with a proposition: she wants him to write her biography. What begins as an odd vanity project gradually turns into a frightening glimpse into the mind of a potentially troubled girl. Fiona says that in her basement, there's a portal that leads to a magical world where a creature called the Riverman is stealing the souls of children. And Fiona's soul could be next. If Fiona really believes what she's saying, Alistair fears she may be crazy. But if it's true, her life could be at risk. It's up to Alistair to separate fact from fiction, fantasy from reality.

Professional reviews

"Everything in Alistair's simple life changes when he agrees to write the biography of his classmate, Fiona. Narrator Graham Halstead's hypnotic intonation lulls the listener as the story slowly reveals the puzzle of Fiona's visits to the parallel world of Aquavania, where the Riverman steals the souls of children. As the lines between fantasy and reality blur in this dark tale, Halstead clearly delineates between Fiona's stolid insistence that Aquavania and the Riverman exist and Alistair's initial skepticism of her story. Halstead also captures Alistair's fierce protectiveness of her. Secondary characters are portrayed equally well. Alistair's best friend, Charlie, has the jumpy, impatient voice of a gamer while Charlie's older brother, Kyle, has a laid-back, amused tone. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
