Kim Mai Guest narrates this enchanting fantasy, in which Maia Tamarin must contend with several masters to become the imperial tailor and support her family. Women aren't allowed to become tailors, so Maia disguises herself as a man while she competes. Guest excels at providing vibrant, distinct voices for a wide cast of characters. Maia's voice, in particular, is carefully crafted: soft and delicate when she is her female self, tough and tenacious when she pretends to be a man. Guest captivates listeners by shading the vivid descriptions of clothing with tones of astonishment and awe. She also wraps listeners in the wonder of discovering magic and falling in love. A beautiful tale, especially for fans of MULAN and stories featuring fierce competition. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
