Week 5’s pair contains a series the AudioFile editors have had our ears on for some time.
As SYNC launched last May, we listened to The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty and knew we would be excited to include a title from the series in SYNC, and here we are with a multi-voiced recording from Scholastic Audio of the first in the "Colors of Madeleine" series, A CORNER OF WHITE.
We matched its themes of letters, searches for people, and dual worlds with Naxos’s new full-cast recording of the classic DRACULA, which is told in a series of diary entries and letters. If you’ve never read the original vampire novel, we think you’ll be surprised at just how unsettling Bram Stoker’s story is.
