Editorial Reviews

“Narrator David Tennant returns for this sequel. He gives each character a voice so distinct that this audiobook is comparable to a full-cast production…Characters have accents that represent a variety of dialects across the British Isles…[along with a] few occasions when characters share the songs of their clans. Tennant sings these beautifully. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“In the sequel to Cowell’s The Wizards of Once, returning protagonists and reluctant allies Xar and Wish once again join forces, this time to battle a powerful and destructive spell.” Publishers Weekly
“This action-packed magical sequel to The Wizards of Once Cowell returns readers to a fantasy world chock-full of wizards and warriors, distrust, and discord…Magical mischief aside, this is a tale about parent-child relationships and the lengths to which the latter will go to gain the former’s respect…This is a cautionary tale demonstrating the danger of not taking children seriously.” Kirkus Reviews
