Reviews for Grey King : Library Edition


AudioFile Reviews 2001 December/2002 January
In the fourth book of Cooper's Dark is Rising series, Will Stanton travels to Wales to recover from hepatitis. Here he learns more of his legacy as an Old One; meets Bran Davies, whose life in intertwined with his; and recovers the last talisman for the struggle against the Dark. Susan Cooper is a consummate storyteller, and Richard Mitchley is an extraordinary narrator. His voice resonates with the atmosphere of the British Isles. The power and depth of his voice as the Grey King cause the listener to cower, and his icy tones create chills as the Brenin Llwyd blows by. As Will comes to understand the eerie might of the warestones, Mitchley brings goose bumps to the listener's skin. The interplay of past and present is compelling and believable, given his masterful presentation. This is a fabulous listen! A.R. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine
