Narrator Jeanette Illidge delivers a resonating performance of this YA fantasy in which five girls, known as Good Luck Girls, must survive a journey across the country of Arketta. Branded with marks that betray their identity, the girls are relentlessly pursued by powerful men, their mind-flaying servants, and the spirits of the dead. Illidge captures the fear and anger of girls who want more out of life than having their bodies sold. Her tone grows in confidence as they slowly gain control of their circumstances. To convey the setting, Illidge uses a slight accent, and her lovely singing voice is demonstrated in a couple of short songs. Overall, this immersive story is hard to pause.
