Review of The Jewels of Valonia (Chronicles of Valonia, Book 1) from Audiofile Magazine: Gareth and Rachel are 12-year-old twins whose sibling rivalry and bickering is perfectly captured by narrator Karen Savage. The annoyance and indignation so innate to “tweens” comes through loud and clear in a fantasy that has Arthurian legends colliding with contemporary country life in England. The children's journey through space and time leads to their discovery of their true destiny and a family history they never knew. Although Savage relies on her vocal abilities alone to create each character, in the final moments of the story a special effect is used for Argante, the Lady of the Lake. Rather than being jarring, it works perfectly to sustain the mood the author has created. G.G. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2012] Review of Getting Sassy from Audiofile Magazine: Brod's snappy mystery involves a goat kidnapping, extortion, the complications of mother-daughter relationships, and issues of elder care. Karen Savage shines in her portrayals of all the characters who are making Robyn Gutherie's life hell as she tries to figure out how to get enough money to care for her spunky, fibbing, fading mother. Savage's use of tonal differences and pacing effectively makes each character distinct. Her acting skills do much to keep the listener guessing as new twists add to this Capra-style comedic mystery. A fun listen that will keep you laughing. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2011]
