"Readers will thrill to Ilyana Kadushin's elegant reading of "New Moon"...her performance captures the emotional upheaval of mortal Bella's desperate love for Vampire Edward and the obstacles to their perilous reunion. Kadushin's silvery feminine voice delivers the unfolding events with precise, consistent timing that showcases Meyer's story without overwhelming it. Kadushin ably succeeds at creating an addictive listen.."
-(Audio File Magazine)
“Ilyana's work as narrator was intuitive and nuanced and her preparation was superlative. Not only did bringing Ilyana to the table please the high-profile author of this high-profile series and make me look good for bringing Ilyana in, but created a series of audiobooks that will stand the test of time as best-sellers and as great performance.”
-Jacob Bronstein (Random House- Crown Publishing).
"As a Performer, Ilyana has huge emotional range and is in touch with a process to get there. She is soulful...especially in her eyes, bringing the whole spirit to her work. She is massively passionate and invested in all she does."
