Reviews for Island of Silence


AudioFile Reviews 2013 January
McMann visits the contrasting worlds of Artimé and Quill for the second time. Twin brothers Alex and Aaron once again find themselves on opposite sides as Wanteds, Unwanteds, and Necessaries begin traveling between the now open gates between worlds. From the start, the word "Artimé" simply rolls off of the tongue of narrator James Langton. He delights with deliberate pacing, crisp pronunciation, and intimate characterizations. Middle-grade listeners will appreciate Langton's range as he portrays power-hungry Aaron and less-than-confident Alex , as well as mysterious strangers from unknown lands and enchanted statues.
