Description

Bronte Mettlestone is ten years old when her parents are killed by pirates. This does not bother her particularly: her parents ran away to have adventures when she was a baby. She has been raised by her Aunt Isabelle, with assistance from the Butler, and has spent a pleasant childhood of afternoon teas and riding lessons. Now, however, her parents have left detailed instructions for Bronte in their will. (Instructions that, annoyingly, have been reinforced with faery cross-stitch, which means that if she doesn't complete them, terrible things could happen!) She travels the kingdoms, perfectly alone, delivering gifts to ten other aunts: a farmer aunt who owns an orange orchard, a veterinarian aunt who specializes in dragon care, a pair of aunts who captain a cruise ship, and a former rock star aunt who is now the reigning monarch of a small kingdom. But as she travels from aunt to aunt, Bronte suspects there might be more to this journey than the simple delivery of treasure.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Charlie Sanderson will delight listeners as she tells the story of now 12-year-old Bronte Mettlestone. Two years earlier, Bronte learned that her parents had been killed by pirates. In order to receive her inheritance, she was instructed to give a gift to each of her 10 aunts and to complete important tasks along the way. As she carries out her quest, she eventually finds herself caught up in the age-old battle between the Spellbinders and the Whisperers. Sanderson seamlessly switches from one character to the next, establishing unique voices for each of the lively individuals Bronte meets on her adventure. Listeners will cheer on Bronte as she tries to find her place in a fantastical world of dueling magical powers. M.D. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
