RAYBEARER The Raybearer Series, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Joniece Abbott-Pratt

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Joniece Abbott-Pratt's evocative narration skillfully complements Ifueko's vibrant multilayered fantasy. Tarisai grows into a prestigious role in Aristar, but while her gifts bring change, her mother has cursed her with a violent purpose. Tarisai's pursuit of justice and sense of belonging are beautifully interwoven with Ifueko's explorations of power, society, and family. Abbott-Pratt balances danger and intrigue as Tarisai continues her training, delving deep into the secrets of the corrupt capital. Ifueko captures magic, mystery, metaphor, vivid imagery, and dialogue that build to dramatic scenes and stirring reveals. Abbott-Pratt's richly expressive characterizations imbue a fascinating cast with warmth and complexity, and her expert delivery evokes the listener’s curiosity at each turn. K.S.B.
