9780006704300: Weirdstone of Brisingamen

A tale of Alderley When Colin and Susan are pursued by eerie creatures across Alderley Edge, they are saved by the Wizard. He takes them into the caves of Fundindelve, where he watches over the enchanted sleep of one hundred and forty knights. But the heart of the magic that binds them -- Firefrost, also known as the Weirdstone of Brisingamen -- has been lost. The Wizard has been searching for the stone for more than 100 years, but the forces of evil are closing in, determined to possess and destroy its special power. Colin and Susan realise at last that they are the key to the Weirdstone's return. But how can two children defeat the Morrigan and her deadly brood?

About the Author:

Alan Garner was born and still lives in Cheshire, an area which has had a profound effect on his writing and provided the seed of many ideas worked out in his books. His fourth book, 'The Owl Service' brought Alan Garner to everyone's attention. It won two important literary prizes - The Guardian Award and the Carnegie Medal - and was made into a serial by Granada Television. It has established itself as a classic and Alan Garner as a writer of great distinction.

From AudioFile:

Philip Madoc's narration has a tone of secrecy, as if he has a story to tell that only the listener will hear. In the classic style of young people's fantasy, the young protagonists of this book, a sister and brother, must be brave and act under extraordinary circumstances to save the world as we know it. Madoc catches the kids' feelings of anxiety and disbelief at what is being asked of them. His sense of engagement is contagious, and the air of suspense is well deserved. No flashy tricks, sleight of hand, or easy answers will be found in this enchanting tale of good and evil. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
