Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand (audio) by Gail Carson Levine
Another cute book by Levine about the Disney fairies. I thought it was precious though there were parts that weren't quite explained enough (the Rani-bat). It's an age old moral: be careful what you wish for and it applies even to fairies as they make wishes that don't always work out for the best. I did find this one to be more abrupt than the first one and because I was listening to it I had to stop a few times to make sure I hadn't skip a chapter or something. But despite that it was a very sweet story.
Rosalyn Landor is the narrator for this story and she does a great job. Sometimes when a series changes narrators, it throws me off, but I didn't mind this one too much. I think I liked Hannah Gordon, who narrated the first book, better but Landor has the right soft spoken voice for this series as well. Both are easy to listen to.
