More than most, this dramatic reading is virtually a full cast drama, albeit with a limited cast. A man of God and a Witch, one of whom has to earn their freedom by committing a truly unselfish act, as decreed by Nigel Fairs' Dark Lord. As ever, the sound design and incidental music is sumptuous and very visual.
Trask uses his religion as ever to justify his pious acts, whereas Angelique's villainy is more forthright. Finding out who 'wins' - if anyone - is a great journey, and would the victor be worthy anyway? Could either of them commit a 'truly unselfish act?' Is such a thing even possible?

I have the download of this story, and there are only two credited performers, Lara Parker and Jerry Lacy - both wonderful as always and highly convincing in their roles. I recognise Nigel Fairs, and the fourth voice is Lizzie Hopley, the writer of this highly recommended and very atmospheric release.
