About the Author

bestselling Pendragon series and the Morpheus Road series.

The penultimate chapter of this young adult fantasy series spans 10 worlds and multiple eras as Connecticut teenager Bobby Pendragon defends the universe from a demonic shape-shifter bent on reshaping reality in his own image. MacHale's storytelling is complex and multilayered. It's also, at times, melodramatic, which makes it not the best match for Dufris, whose gifted comic style and timing are not allowed to shine. Dufris brings a youthful exuberance to the text, excelling when reading the "journal entries" from Pendragon's point of view. But at the end of the day, his talents are underutilized. Nevertheless, followers of this series will enjoy Dufris's reading of these history-altering story lines, which lead to the final battle in Book 10. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
