Tamsyn Muir's absorbing storytelling and Moira Quirk's immersive performance create a richly imagined fantasy world. Gideon Nav, an indentured servant of the Ninth House, survives on snarky, perfectly timed humor and tenacity. Conscripted as a cavalier, Gideon accompanies the haughty necromancer the Reverend Daughter Harrowhark Nonagesimus through myriad dangers while exploring supernatural mysteries. Their fractious relationship is well paced and organic as it evolves throughout their journey. Each revelation and bittersweet moment between them is earned. Quirk is at turns antagonistic, vulnerable, and hopelessly helpful as she characterizes all the participants and stewards of Canaan House. Everyone is suspect in an atmosphere of increasing mistrust. Listeners will eagerly anticipate the trilogy's next installment. J.R.T. Winner of AudioFile Eaprhones Award © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
