Quotes & Awards

  • “Ramón de Ocampo’s consistent and distinct characterizations help listeners get a bearing on the life-threatening situations and large cast of characters. His narration matches the intensity of the story. And by gearing the pacing down in quieter moments, he avoids exhausting the listener.”


  • “Listeners will be able to visualize the action portrayed and will be on the edge of their seats. The tale ends with a satisfying cliffhanger, leaving listeners waiting for the next installment.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Nonstop action and ever-present danger makes this a sure bet for middle school-aged readers who have read the first volume. It’s a swift and exciting read, with appeal to reluctant readers.”
