by Cherie Priest | Read by Colleen Delany and a Full Cast

Colleen Delany is at the helm of this full-cast dramatization, complete with sound effects and musical score. Ezekiel is on a mission to redeem his much maligned grandfather, whose invention, the Boneshaker, supposedly wreaked havoc on Seattle, making parts of it nearly inhabitable. The teenager’s mother isn’t nearly as convinced that Ezekiel is on the right path but is not about to lose her son. Delany captures the range of moods throughout the story and shifts smoothly between the action and dialogue. The cast provides unique and quirky voices to the other characters in this steampunk-inspired world. L.E. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine
