In this urban fantasy/horror story, Caroline and her adopted siblings have been raised in the “library” for 25 years by a “father” who is at least 600 years old. Each has a separate “catalogue” to master, and the combination of their expertise and talents underlies this original tale. Narrator Hillary Huber infuses the three main narrators with very different but, in each case, engaging manners that contrast with the weird events they find themselves involved in. Huber draws on a vast store of voices and personalities to vividly portray the siblings and the many others who come within their sphere of influence. She maintains a subtle intensity that bursts into moments of explosive energy. J.E.M. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine
