John Barrowman is not only a great actor he seems to me to be an excellent writer with Carole E Barrowman the book was exciting and kept me listening at every opportunity I could find to listen to it it is an exciting book I felt drawn in to the story and found myself looking for excuses to get away from people so I could carry on listening to the book I highly recommend this book to everyone the first time I met John was on Dr who and he drew me in with his charismatic personality and energy I think he's pretty awesome this is a great book made even better with John reading it well worth a read

Actually more original that it sounds

When this book first began, I thought I'd heard similar before. Magic. Check. Remote island as stronghold from Evil. Check. People who are (gasp) not what they seem. Check. Unusually gifted children. Check. So I resigned myself to another challenging fantasy romp listen to keep my boys quiet (aged 9 & 11). It actually turned out to be really quite original, if a bit of a slow starter.

The same can be said for John Barrowman's narration. In the beginning I found him REALLY ANNOYING as he habitually broke sentences up and breathed in the "wrong" places. Oh and don't get me started on some of his American raised tones in sentences grrr.... Turns out that even good actors aren't very good at reading large amounts of prose!!

However just like the plot lines, the narration drastically improved in the second half of the books. More speaking lines and more action meant the aforementioned were less noticeable and JB's Scottish accents are just brilliant. Have already bought the next one.
