Actress and writer Felicia Day‘s (“The Guild,” “Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” ) comedic fantasy novel “Third Eye” is coming to Audible this fall. The original will feature none other than “Sandman” and “Good Omens” author, Neil Gaiman.
Gaiman will be narrating. The project aims to have “an abundance of iconic geek and gaming culture Easter eggs cleverly woven throughout the series,” according to Audible.
Other stars in the cast include Day, Sean Astin (“The Lord of the Rings”), LilyPichu (“Offline TV”), Wil Wheaton (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”), London Hughes (“The Netflix Afterparty”), Danny Pudi (“Community,” “Mythic Quest“), Alan Tudyk (“Resident Alien”), Hudson Yang (“Fresh Off the Boat”), and Kratos himself- Christopher Judge (“God of War,” “Stargate SG-1″).
Audible describes the project:
“Once upon a time, in the magical land of San Francisco, there lived a not-so-ordinary girl named Laurel (Day) Pettigrew. She was supposed to be the Chosen One. The plan was simple: she would vanquish the great evil Tybus (Judge) in an epic battle. But destiny had other ideas, and Laurel’s performance in the whole heroics department was a colossal flop.
Now, instead of being a legendary hero, Laurel’s the resident pariah of the magic realm. And what’s worse, the dark wizard Tybus swooped in, took over the realm, and forced all supernatural creatures to live under his tyrannical rule. He’s even stripped away the magical powers of those who refused to join his wicked cause. Yeah, everyone hates her. Well, everyone except her two roomies—Sybil (Hughs), the sassiest diva of a fairy, who could throw shade with the flick of a wing. And Frank (Astin) the vampire who rocks a bald spot and a serious paunch. They are the real MVPs, the ride-or-die buddies who have her back, no matter how many colossal fails she racks up.
And it’s all about to get even weirder. Along comes Kate (LilyPichu), a Normie who somehow knows more about Laurel than Laurel knows about herself. Turns out, she’s got some secrets up her sleeve that might just give Laurel a shot at redemption and a chance to rewrite her destiny.”
Day called “Third Eye” her biggest passion project since “The Guild” so we’re very excited for it.
“Third Eye” premieres October 5th, 2023 exclusively on Audible.
