The Unlikely Escape of Uriah Heep
By H. G. Parry
Narrated by Calum Gittins / 18 hours 3 minutes
“This book is the perfect summer reading escape for a literature lover! The book takes place in a modern New Zealand where a Summoner, someone able to pull characters out of books and into real life, has appeared and is threatening to tear down the very fabric of existence to bring a world of literature to life. Throughout all the adventure and excitement we follow the sweet story of 2 brothers, pulled apart and eventually put back together again. The narrator has a soft NZ accent, bringing a richness to the text without making it hard to understand for non-natives.”Genavieve, Books & Company
The ultimate book-lover's fantasy, featuring a young scholar with the power to bring literary characters into the world, for fans of The Magicians, Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, and The Invisible Library.
For his entire life, Charley Sutherland has concealed a magical ability he can't quite control: he can bring characters from books into the real world. His older brother, Rob -- a young lawyer with a normal house, a normal fiancee, and an utterly normal life -- hopes that this strange family secret will disappear with disuse, and he will be discharged from his life's duty of protecting Charley and the real world from each other. But then, literary characters start causing trouble in their city, making threats about destroying the world... and for once, it isn't Charley's doing.
There's someone else who shares his powers. It's up to Charley and a reluctant Rob to stop them, and hopefully before anyone gets to The End.
