The Cauley women have magic powers, traditionally inherited by the eldest daughter upon her mother’s 65th birthday. When tragedy strikes, and their mother dies in a car accident before she is 65, sisters Nicole, Lynn, and Charlie, plus cousin Rene, are thrust together, as each of them now has some magic but not the full range. They must unite to keep the powerful demon, Legion, at bay and deal with their family legacy. This fully dramatized book with a rich soundscape, complete with music, sound effects, and voice enhancements, evokes a cinematic experience. Narrator Bahni Turpin’s excellent portrayal gives each character a distinct voice reflecting their individual strengths and vulnerabilities. She captures the family dynamics, including moments of comedy, grief, and irritation. The haunting voices of Legion and other evil beings further enhance the creepy atmosphere. Turpin’s remarkable skill creates the illusion of a full cast rather than a single narrator.
VERDICT With its captivating blend of family dynamics and supernatural peril, listeners are in for a thrilling ride. Turpin’s skillful narration elevates the storytelling, ensuring an enthralling experience from beginning to end.
