Unlike every other entry in the Arkangel series, this chooses to depart from playing a strict interpretation of the work, and mysteriously features all of the Fairy characters with pronounced and often difficult to understand African accents. Its no doubt innovative and maybe even refreshing in a modernist way, but do not purchase this item if you are seeking a purist interpretation. Look instead at the Cadmeon series, which though much older and of slightly inferior production quality, delivers the goods the way its been delivered for 400 years already.
