Narrator Caitlin Kelly lends youthful enthusiasm to this charming middle-grade fantasy. Exiled princess Noa Marchena has a lot on her mind. She is openly determined to regain her family's stolen throne, but she also has a secret mission--to protect her older brother, Julian, from embracing the dark side of his magical powers. With lively pacing, Kelly spurs the action forward as Noa discovers her own magical talents and embarks upon adventures in newly discovered realms. Although many of the themes--grief, forgiveness, and the seductive pull of power--are surprisingly complex, Kelly's warm, clear delivery keeps the story at an age-appropriate level. This captivating audio, humorous and heartbreaking, will leave listeners eagerly awaiting a return to this uniquely enchanted world.
