Swoon - Audio CD - Unabridged Author:Nina Malkin, Caitlin Greer (Narrator) Torn from her native New York City and dumped in the land of cookie-cutter preps, Candice is resigned to accept her posh, dull fate. Nothing ever happens in Swoon, Connecticut...until Dice's perfect, privileged cousin Penelope nearly dies in a fall from an old tree, and her spirit intertwines with that of a ghost. His name? Sinclair Youngblo... more »od Powers. His mission? Revenge. And while Pen is oblivious to the possession, Dice is all too aware of Sin. She's intensely drawn to him -- but not at all crazy about the havoc he's wreaking. Determined to exorcise the demon, Dice accidentally sets Sin loose, gives him flesh, makes him formidable. Now she must destroy an even more potent -- and irresistible -- adversary, before the whole town succumbs to Sin's will. Only trouble is, she's in love with him.
Caitlin Greer's perky voice captures the character of 17-year-old Dice, the spunky narrator of Malkin's offbeat, sexually-charged tale of a dangerous connection between a human and a ghost. Dice communicates with the dead. She falls in love with a seventeenth-century spirit named Sinclair Youngblood Powers, who inhabits her cousin Penelope's body. Greer paces her narration to match the sassy Dice as she struggles to undo the botched exorcism that made Sinclair corporeal. Greer expresses Dice's frustration as she witnesses the irresistible Sinclair wreaking havoc of the sexual kind on the unsuspecting female residents of Swoon, Connecticut. Effortlessly, Greer differentiates between what Dice is thinking and what she is actually saying. Overall, Greer masterfully gives personality to male and female voices while keeping older listeners riveted to Dice's sometimes-dangerous erotic adventure. -- AudioFile
