Soneela Nankani adroitly narrates the second installment of an epic fantasy inspired by Middle Eastern mythology and history. Vicious palace intrigue and bloody political rebellions take center stage as Nahri and Ali fight to survive what Daevabad has become. Nahri has been forced into a marriage that is crushing her spirit, while Ali is an expendable pawn in his father's game of kingship. Nankani perfectly captures the array of emotions both Nahri and Ali feel as they contemplate their respective positions. Equally impressive are her portrayals of the many secondary characters; djinn, daeva, nahid, shafit, and ifrit are instantly recognizable. A brutal final confrontation leaves many unanswered questions. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2019]
