JY Yang's immersive fantasy novellas span twins Akeha and Mokoya's lifetimes as they confront government machinations in this all-in-one audio production. Sold as infants by their imperious mother, The Protector, they emerge with diverging roles and gender identities, which are enhanced by narrator Nancy Wu's keen characterizations. Wu charges the siblings' personal journeys with nuanced emotions as they grapple with family dynamics, political strife, and magical elements. Disturbing revelations compel opposition forces, led by Akeha and Mokoya, into action. Wu shifts tone and focus as the climax centers on an investigator who is bent on exposing the truth behind a laboratory disaster. Bureaucratic documents and personal reflections add humor and frustration to converging narratives in Yang's gripping conclusion. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
