WICKED AS YOU WISH A Hundred Names for Magic, Book 1

by | Read by Cassie Simone

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

A story combining realism and folklore is brought to life by narrator Cassie Simone. Prince Alexei of Avalon seeks to escape the terrors of his kingdom, which has been turned to ice by a spell. He hides out with Tala's family in a magic-free zone. The duo soon discover a legendary firebird who reignites their determination to come out of hiding and save the kingdom. Simone traverses the story's contemporary issues--racism, immigration, and xenophobia--with sensitivity. She convincingly distinguishes character voices, notably depicting Tala's parents. She also captures the diversity of the characters, illuminating their ethnicities, disabilities, sexual preferences, and family dynamics. J.O. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
