Narrator Imogen Sage delivers a commanding performance in this exquisite young adult fantasy full of political intrigue. Sylvie knows that her power to create illusions entitles her to a place in the court of the Amber Empress despite her lowly upbringing. To earn her place, she must accept sponsorship from Sunder, whose unpredictable personality switches from charmingly seductive to darkly cruel. Sage relies on vocal mannerisms and small tonal shifts to create distinct characters, speaking forcefully when conveying Sylvie's fierce ambition and using crisp yet smooth articulation to express the members of the Empress's court. Sage's brisk pace keeps the tension high, and her narration overall is an excellent companion to the rich prose. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2020]
