Secret Speakers – Young Adult Fantasy Story

Secret Speakers is a young adult fantasy story of redemption and sacrifice, where thirteen year-old Fair O’Nelli is tested to her extremities and answers brutality with rebellion, oppression with escape, and doubt into a trust in someone greater than herself. This book had an impact on my life, therefore I decided to write my essay today to tell more readers about this fantastic story.

Hidden in the depths of Cloven Grave, the harsh imposter Harrold King hides a deep secret the parents know nothing about. After spending nine years hidden in a cellar, thirteen year-old Fair O’Nelli finally assumes it’s safe to be seen. She knows that her father and brother are missing or possibly dead.

But when she sets off in the company of three guardians to find Selador’s Gate, she heads right into Harrold King’s secret. If she and countless others are to survive, she will have to start making choices that place friendship above fright, faith over doubt, and compassion over fear.

The audio book adaptation is brought to life by Booklist’s Voice of Choice, Simon Vance. (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, The Girl Who Played with Fire.) British-born Vance was awarded Audiofile MagazineGolden Voice status, which is the hall of fame for narrators (June 2009).
