Narnia meets Harry Potter? That is the feeling I get from this. Well written, exciting YA fiction. Even for older people. I'm 30 and still enjoyed it.

The voice and accents are off putting. Armstrong's attempt at Tova's accent is terrible. The Australian accent for Matt isn't the worst I've heard. Overall it is good but Tova's voice is what stops this being a 5 star rating for me

Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel.
