Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Scott Brick dives into the role of first-person narrator Richard Collier…so convincing[ly].” AudioFile
“Appealing to teens and adults with a romantic bent, this is a most exciting novel and an equally entrancing audiobook about a love that transcends time. Narrator Scott Brick’s talent as an experienced and gifted narrator is very evident in this fully voiced performance in which his sensitivity and often quavery introspection convey the ethereal and romantic substance of this story.” SoundCommentary.com (starred review)
