Narrator Shayna Small delivers a versatile performance in this young adult fantasy filled with mermaids and magic. Princess Amora has trained to master soul magic her entire life, but when her public demonstration goes horribly wrong, she is sentenced to die. Bastian, a mysterious and alluring pirate, agrees to help Amora prove herself worthy to rule if she can help him reclaim his magic. Small uses a variety of accents and tonal shifts to create distinct characters. She relaxes during the narrative and adds intensity during the dialogue. While a few noticeable production edits may break the listener's immersion in the story, overall, Small captures the characters' emotions, adding to the story's ferocity.
