#MTW2017 Trail of Secrets Writer: Laura Wolfe Narrator: Kelli Andresen

Reviewed by TBB

I received a free copy of the audio publication in return for an honest review:

Brynlei has looked forward to a stay at the Foxwoode Academy for as long as she has known about it.  What better way to spend three weeks of a summer vacation than living in close proximity to horses and learning how to become a better rider!  Ghost stories around the nighttime campfire introduce the tale of a girl who went missing from the academy 4 years ago – but is the tale real, or just a story to ensure the girls stay on the marked trails?

Kelli Andresen is an excellent narrator and her performance of this story is outstanding.  I was able to connect with the characters and could easily visualize the settings in this story.  However, I am not sure if there was an issue with the length of the finished production or if Kelli is just a fast reader, but I changed the speed of the story to -0,75 after the first chapter. The speed at which the story has been recorded is so fast that I felt like I missed sections.  Such a pity because this story deserves better.

Even though this mystery is classified as Young Adult, I highly recommend this book for teens and upward.

As this is the first time I have encountered a story which gallops along so fast that I had to change settings to be able to enjoy it

Review Rating Writer:: 4.5/5

Review Rating Narrator:: 2/5 (4 if this is an editing issue)
