Sixteen-year-old Nick and his brother, Alan, are always ready to run. Their father is dead, and their mother is crazy—she screams if Nick gets near her. She’s no help in protecting any of them from the deadly magicians who use demons to work their magic. The magicians want a charm that Nick’s mother stole—and they want it badly enough to kill. Alan is Nick’s partner in demon slaying and the only person he trusts in the world. So things get very scary and very complicated when Nick begins to suspect that everything Alan has told him about their father, their mother, their past, and what they are doing is a complete lie. . . .

James Langton narrates the story of Nick and his brother, Alan, two teenagers on the run from magicians and their demon servants. Unlike Alan, Nick is not afraid of the magicians, even when their leader turns out to be his father. Nick does not feel anything except anger, and Langton captures this emotion perfectly, along with the fear of a young girl, and the love of an older brother. The tempting voices of the demons and the sly voice of Nick's father roll off Langton's tongue, while Nick is convincing as an angst-filled, dangerous teenager. Peppered with typical British irony, this production is so well done that even Langton seems surprised by the final twist. R.A. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
