"Picking up two years after the adventures in THE APOTHECARY, 16-year-old Janie Scott reconnects with Benjamin Burrows and the magical world inhabited by the apothecary and his son. Cristin Milioti, who continues her narration in the sequel, has a flair for reading in a way that fully separates the regular everyday world from the adventures of the apothecary and the ongoing threat of nuclear weapons. Milioti delivers Janie's narration and dialogue in an even American accent and is also adept at using other accents to differentiate characters. And as the characters' adventures span the globe, Milioti shows her skill with place and people names as she seamlessly delivers scenes, points of view, and even foreign languages. E.N.
