Description

From the award-winning Jaclyn Moriarty comes a spellbinding tale of unlikely friendship, unexpected magic and competitive athletics. The town of Spindrift is frequented by all kinds of Shadow Mages and charlatans. It's also home to the Orphanage School, where Finlay lives with Glim, Taya, and Eli. Just outside town is the painfully posh Brathelthwaite Boarding School, home to Honey Bee, Hamish, and Victor, Duke of Ainsley. When the two schools compete at the Spindrift Tournament, the stakes are high, tensions are higher, and some people are out to win at any cost. Before long, the orphans and the boarding school kids are at each other's throats. And then the Whispering Wars break out, and Spindrift is thrust onto the front lines. Children are being stolen; witches, sirens, and a deadly magical flu invade the town; and all attempts to fight back are met with defeat. Finlay, Honey Bee, and their friends must join forces to outwit the encroaching forces of darkness, rescue the stolen children, and turn the tide of the war. But how can one bickering troupe outwit the insidious power of the Whisperers?

Professional reviews

"Three narrators amplify the fun in this delightful fantasy about rivalry and teamwork. When the Orphanage School places second (on a technicality) behind the posh Brathelthwaite School at the Spindrift Tournament, the orphans furiously wage war against the rich kids. In hilarious alternating chapters, orphaned Finlay and privileged Honey Bee recount their sides of the story. But when the town of Spindrift becomes embroiled in an actual war with the Whispering Kingdom, the kids join together to fight dark magical forces. Each narrator enlivens a variety of quirky characters with distinct voices. Edward Killingback gives Finlay an easygoing affability in contrast with Sarah Ovens's prim Honey Bee, who sounds used to having her way. Imogen Wilde's brief chapter gives life to the story's quietest character. Listeners will love them all. S.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
