Elizabeth Hand is the award-winning author of six novels, including Black Light and Waking the Moon, and one short story collection, Last Summer at Mars Hill.From AudioFile:
Waking the Moon begins at the University of the Archangels and St. John the Divine, where the supernatural follow the lives of the main characters, Sweeney, Angelica, Annie, Oliver and Baby Jo. This Gothic tale of goddesses and sorcery is ably read by Laura Esterman. Her ethereal voice is well matched to the tale. She narrates in a slow, expressive style, which becomes more animated as the strange events unfold. Conversations are easy to follow as Esterman switches from throaty-voiced Annie to sophisticated Angelica and back to the narration. Even the unusual chanting of the cult of Atheum Lunarsa is forcefully and credibly presented. A.A.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
