Tamora Pierce's legions of fans will be not be disappointed with what could easily be mistaken for a full-cast performance of her long-awaited novel by narrator Ariadne Meyers. Listeners familiar with Numair will meet him here as Arram Draper when he becomes best friends with Ozorne, still just a prince of Carthak, and Varice. They are just beginning their studies at the Imperial University in a world that is very different from the one that will evolve. Meyers ably provides a wide range of voices for the mages, beings, students, and gods, as well as a light, smooth narrative. Standouts are the three students; Enzi, the crocodile god; and the university's mages. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment. E.J.F.
