In this stand-alone audiobook related to the Queens of Renthia trilogy, Khristine Hvam returns to narrate the story of a complicated world surrounded by spirits who must be kept at bay. She succeeds in portraying the protagonist, Mayara, as strong yet vulnerable. Because Mayara displays her power to command the spirits, which she reveals while trying to save her village from a storm, she is taken into custody and forced to endure a test for the sake of her religion. It's a lose-lose situation--she will either die in the effort or succeed and be cut off from her family. Complex relationships and loyalties are central to this character-driven tale, and Hvam portrays them flawlessly. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
