Fast-moving adventure is good fun for children.
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Do Batman and Robin really need a third member of the team? The answer is an unqualified "yes," as this audio adventure proves. Adapted from Doug Monech's book, this story--set right after the events of the BATMAN & ROBIN film--shows Batgirl overcoming her misgivings to help the Dynamic Duo solve the mystery of Black Mask and the False Face Society. The voices are well-done for the most part; Deborah Stoll seems a little old for the role of Batgirl, and she doesn't sound like Alicia Silverstone at all, but she carries the role off with aplomb. Also in the cast are Don Leslie (as Batman), Jim Soriero (as Robin), and longtime character actor Edward Herrmann makes a memorable Black Mask. TO DARE THE DARKNESS will be a lot of fun for kids to listen to, especially girls, who will love listening to Batgirl save Gotham City! END"
