Kim Mai Guest narrates a story about the aftermath of war. After a devastating decades-long conflict has finally ended, a soldier, a prince, a detective, and a thief from opposing sides must lay down their mutual animosities and work together to help usher in a new era of peace. The frequent point of view shifts, extremely complex plot, and variety of accents present in the story may appear daunting, but Guest is up to the challenge. Each of the four main characters is deeply psychologically damaged in some way, and all of them bury that trauma. Guest skillfully teases out the nuances of the characters' individual suffering in ways that are truly amazing. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
