James Fouhey's outstanding narration heightens every nuance of the complicated characters and lush world-building in this queer space adventure. Orphaned by war, Ettian has built a life for himself as a military pilot when he learns that his best friend is heir to the empire that destroyed his homeworld. Then an attempted assassination causes the boys to flee on a cross-galaxy quest for safety. Fouhey creates specific voices for every character, utilizing a range of accents that bring diverse galactic societies to life. His voice enlivens the fast-paced action sequences and tenderly--sometimes painfully--embodies Ettian's turmoil and romantic longing. Fouhey's chameleon-like ability to express emotions ranging from rage to desire brings listeners deep into an unfamiliar world and turns this compelling novel into something truly magnificent. L.S.
