Lolth - patron deity of the drow, Spider Queen, regent of the Demon Web Pits - has once again stirred the dark elves into roiling aggression against the rest of Faern, reveling in the chaos born from her dark schemata. This is the Rise of the Underdark. In Iltkazar, the last subterranean kingdom of the once resplendent dwarven realm of Shanatar, King Mith Barak faces a siege of drow soldiers, spies, and assassins looking to seize the powerful city and the ancient magical artifacts hidden there. Somewhere in the city, the Arcane Script Sphere - a mystical orb touched by Mystra, the long-dead goddess magic - calls out to heroes and adventurers, beckoning with whispers of power and knowledge. Mith Barak hears it and knows he cannot hold the artifact much longer, but fears what the drow may do with it. Enter Icelin, Ruen, and Sull, Waterdavian wanders whose desire to understand their own spellscars sets them in search of Mystran mysteries - they hope to understand magic and thus understand its plague. As they move from town to town, city to city in search of knowledge, Icelin hears the siren call of the Arcane Script Sphere, and it draws the trio deep into rocks of the Underdark where they find themselves at the center of the struggle between the dwarves and drow. Only King Mith Barak can initiate them into the mysteries they hope to illuminate. But first they must help him with a mystery of his own - a dark elf assassin, himself a seeker of the sphere, lies in Iltkazar’s dungeons shrouded in the mystery and magic of Lolth. Icelin might be the one to see past that shroud and determine the true goal of the Spider Queen’s schemes. As the dark elves intensify their attacks, the trio realizes their quest for knowledge has taken them into a new and dangerous realm...a realm dictated by the whims of spider and stone. ©2012 Wizards of the Coast LLC (P)2012 Audible, Inc.

Performance Notes
A short excerpt from the classic tale of Alice's Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

I became a voice talent after enjoying many years of reading aloud to children in elementary schools both in the UK and US. One evening, after reading a chapter of Harry potter to my 12 year old son, he told me how much he enjoyed my character voices and he believed I should become an audiobook narrator. That got me thinking hard about my future and the rest is history. I have built up a great reputation as a narrator after attending many, many training workshops and webinars with well known coaches and teachers. I've worked hard to learn the craft of narration and the learning never stops. I continue to work with great coaches and mentors on a regular basis. Since 2008 I've worked in all genres of the voiceover business and have recorded projects ranging from simple voicemail to multiple characters in video games and audiobooks. In late 2008 I began volunteering for Houston Taping For The Blind Radio and was soon asked to record and produce the weekly Tales Of Suspense show which airs for one hour every Saturday and Monday night. My stories became popular and Taping For The Blind nominated me for a national narration award at the IAAIS (International Association of Audio Information Services) conference. I have received IAAIS awards for best narrative storytelling for 2009, 2010 and 2012. I continue to volunteer and thoroughly enjoy my job as the 'Suspense' host at Houston Taping For The Blind Radio but my personal favorite genre is children's books. I love to inspire young people to read by being a good storyteller and bringing stories to life using lots of expression and character voices.
61 of my audiobooks are now available at Audible.com; I continue to narrate stories and produce a one hour, weekly Tales of Suspense radio show for Houston Turning Sight Into Sound Radio; text book narrations for Clear Creek Independent School District as well as live narrations of children's books in the schools. Narrator of The Perfect Gentleman TV show; the voice of Houston based Worldlink Services video production company; Corporate narrations for Shell, Glaxo Smithkline, Exxon Mobil; Numerous character voices for Sherlock Holmes Versus Jack The Ripper Video game and other Frogwares Productions; Twin City Honda Holiday Radio Commercials; Uberwurx car cleaning products commercial; Blush Clothing commercials; Honda Christmas Radio commercials.

Audiofile Magazine review of A Code Of Love by Jacki Delecki by Jacki Delecki | Read by Pearl Hewitt Romantic Fiction • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014 As England tries to defend itself against Napoleon, narrator Pearl Hewitt's charming English accent and deft tonal modulations conjure the high intrigue of espionage. Her high pitch and deft pacing portray young Lady Henrietta Harcourt, who is uncertain whom she can trust. Hewitt uses a deeper, restrained tone to characterize Cord, who is powerfully attracted to Henrietta and attempts to prove himself to her while maneuvering around suspected double agents. The sometimes not-so-restrained moments between Cord and Henrietta are conveyed with a breathlessness that heightens the sexual tension between them. Hewitt's fluid transitions between narrative and dialogue contribute to the fast pace of this appealing historical romance. M.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015] http://www.audiofilemagazine.com/reviews/read/99414/ Review by Susan Keefe (Audiobook Monthly Magazine) of HILD by Nicola Griffith : I am full of admiration both for the author's attention to detail and Pearl Hewitt's ability to pronounce the names and narrate such an incredible story.Pearl Hewitt brings Hild, and the other Nicola Griffith's characters to life, the listener is able to become totally absorbed into life in the Dark Ages. Here is a link to the review : http://audiobookmonthly.com/page265.html Review by Narrator Reviews Blogspot of Mr Darcy's Letter, by Abigail Reynolds : "No one could be disappointed listening to this narration, it is one of the finest. I loved the quick change between a higher pitched, squeaky voice of simpering Lydia, addressing Elizabeth, it was so distinctive, it sounded just like another woman talking. When Elizabeth responds to Lydia, her voice is again the lilting, smooth voice that is Elizabeth. Amazing, outstanding. The interchange between Elizabeth, Lydia and Mr. Wickham, was an academy award winning performance. There is absolutely no artifice in Hewitt's narration, she is so smooth and realistic sounding. Pearl Hewitt is a perfect fit for a Regency Romance. I adore her narration of this book and you will too.
