John Skelley narrates a debut fantasy series in which the price of magic is memory loss and a son is punished for the sins of his father. Michael Kingman ekes out a living in the rough-and-tumble Hollows as a member of a gang targeting royals until an opportunity for redemption presents itself. Skelley imbues Michael with a youthful vibrancy tinged with regret and simmering rage. Surprisingly varied accents give the eclectic cast of characters a dynamic feel. Skelley maintains a steady narration throughout but struggles to outshine the story's lackluster twists and turns. Still, there are moments of engagement, thanks to Skelley's earnest attempts to inject the story with heart and warmth. J.M.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
