Narrator Rebecca Gibel delivers a resonant performance of this YA fantasy audiobook set in the Dust Bowl in Oklahoma. The story centers around a game that is set into motion by dust soldiers to test humanity's ability to work together. Gibel provides a dramatic characterization of Sal, a powerful witch who is struggling for recognition as the town's leader, despite the many obstacles. The point of view switches from Sal's first-person perspective to the third person point of view of Asa Skander, a demon disguised as a magician and other characters. The pivoting point of view could be distracting, yet Gibel navigates it with ease, assisting the listener through the plot and immersing them in this unique world.
