By SF Said
Read by James Carcaterra
In a universe at war, only a boy named Lucky can save the galaxy from the approaching supernova!
"Narrator James Carcaterra's understated performance allows listeners to imagine Lucky's universe as he and his new companions race across the galaxy...Carcaterra excels at voicing the dialogue and Lucky's inner thoughts, and his easygoing narration softens the story's tension, creating a comfortable balance for middle-grade listeners. Phoenix is a good choice for family enjoyment because the audiobook can be accessed on several levels. It's both a straightforward action-adventure tale and a story of overcoming differences to form deep friendships." - AudioFile
