Description-
  • A thrilling and original adventure from the bestselling author of the Bartimaeus Trilogy.

    Halli Sveinsson has grown up a peaceful society where the violence of the past has been outlawed and disputes are settled by the Council. But young Halli has never quite seemed to fit in with the others and when a practical joke goes too far, he sets in motion a chain of
    events that will forever alter his destiny. Part hero’s saga and part coming-of-age, HEROES OF THE VALLEY is a surprising look at what bravery really means.

    Praise for Jonathan Stroud:
    “Stroud is a masterful storyteller, balancing touching sentiment with humor,
    explosive action scenes with philosophical musings on human nature.”
    The Horn Book, starred review


    From the Compact Disc edition.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine The bestselling author writes an epic tale with an unlikely hero. Halli Sveinsson is short in stature, long on relieving his boredom by pulling pranks. He wonders about the boundaries beyond his home, where monstrous Trows are said to roam, but he has no idea of the frightening secrets that await him or how he'll lead his peaceful valley into peril. David Thorn heightens the drama of Halli's adventures. He also brings out the story's wit and wordplay for listeners. Each chapter begins with a short interlude about Svein, Halli's forebear. While this device helps establish the epic tone, it may confuse listeners. S.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
