Quotes & Awards

  • “A breakneck-paced, Indiana Jones-style adventure…Kerr keeps the emphasis on fun.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Keith’s comedic turns for a grumpy butler and three priests are both shimmering and subservient, acting as a welcome foil to the more fearsome characters, who by turns sound silky and deceptively obsequious. Most enjoyable is his rendering of Uncle Nimrod, who exclaims ‘Light my lamp’ and ‘Bottle me!’ An action-packed reading.” 


  • “The suspenseful plot twists, coupled with a liberal dosing of humor, make this a fun page-turner.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Ron Keith supplies an energetic narration.” 


Listener Opinions

    " I enjoyed all of the Children of the Lamp books. Fun, light fantasy geared for children around age 8-mid teens. For adults, there's some good humor and a good writing style we will enjoy as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Saska | 2/4/2014

    " After the disappointing sequel to "Children of the Lamp", this book was like a breath of fresh air. It was SO interesting and I finished in two days. "

    " Power isn't as important as your family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Timnah | 1/30/2014

    " I enjoyed this one much more than the previous book in the series, perhaps because I read it myself, whereas I had listened to the other book on CD. The tone of the reader makes a big difference. Anyway, I found this one humorous and lively, and I liked that the kids got the chance to do a lot of dangerous things themselves--or mostly by themselves. It ended with a good setup for the next book, which I will probably read when it comes out. "
