Fiona Hardingham and Steve West bring rich, intense narrations to the second book in the Blood Rose Rebellion series. The story alternates between accounts told by spell-breaking Anna (Hardingham) and shape-shifting Mátyás (West), weaving mid-nineteenth-century European history with fantasy to build a complex and believable world. In an emotionally connected performance, Hardingham sounds warm and sincere. She fully conveys Anna's anguish as she comes to realize what her actions have wrought. West's resonant tones and unhurried pace perfectly embody Mátyás's dilemma when he wakes from death to discover that more heroic deeds are required of him. Knowledge of the first book is needed to understand the action here, and a cliff-hanger ending promises more political intrigue and romantic entanglements.
