The tongue-in-cheek voice combines with scribbly b&w interior illustrations...to sustain a sense of wonder and mayhem from start to finish. Cowell skillfully mixes adventure with silliness in a satisfying story. Publishers Weekly
“Narrator David Tennant, hands down the perfect choice, returns to narrate the third installment of this magical series. His high-spirited performance lends energy, humor, and passion to the voices of the wizard Xar, warrior Wish, bodyguard Bodkin, and all of their various companions as they continue their quest to get rid of the witches and journey to confront the Norse demon Nuckalavee. In a production filled with sound effects, music, and singing, Tennant swaps out amazing and colorful accents, imbuing each character with even more personality and enhancing the story’s atmosphere. His performance makes it easy to forget there’s only one narrator. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
