by | Read by Amy Shiels

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 11.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This strong debut featuring an unlikely quartet moving to retake their birthrights is perfectly enhanced by the narration of Amy Shiels. Ara never believed she would inherit the Loresmith title and legacy due to the monarchy's downfall. But with the help of two royals she embarks on a dangerous adventure to prove her worthiness. Shiels delivers a versatile performance that embraces many different characters ranging in age, gender, and species. She slows down her pace when traversing the story's complex mythological elements and projects intensity during the dialogue. Adding to the story's strength, she captures the characters' emotions. Listeners will be captivated through the very last line. J.O. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2020]
