This week’s title details:
“Full Cast Audio’s AIRBORN, by Kenneth Oppel, is narrated by David Kelly and other actors who make this tale of derring-do spring to life. In an alternative to our history of aircraft development, hot air balloons are the height of aviation splendor. There are also air pirates, fierce weather, and a strong-willed young woman out to save her dead grandfather’s reputation. In the tradition of Full Cast Audio, the novel retains every word in its performance as an audio drama, offering inspiration to student thespians seeking ideas for unique audition material.
Paired with this steampunk tale is Zoe Marriott’s genre blending SHADOWS ON THE MOON, performed for Brilliance Audio by Amy Rubinate. Cinderella meets feudal Japan in this fantasy world. A young woman becomes an expert shadow weaver, a skill that allows her to change her appearance and thus escape a cruel household and go in search of a way to wreak vengeance on those who have pressed her into servitude. Marriott stirs together romance, a fully formed mythology with accurate cultural detail, and plenty of action both magical and otherwise. Rubinate’s performance sounds credibly young and moves smoothly among English, Japanese, and invented words as the story builds.”
