James Fouhey's steady narration captures the heart in this story and instantly draws listeners in. Nate is a 16-year-old GEM-- genetically engineered medi-tissue--created to supply the rich and elite with a cure to the deadly lung disease that has ravaged the city of Gathos. But Nate manages to escape the lab and join a band of young, scrappy survivors in the Withers, a dangerous and gritty place outside the city. Fouhey conveys Nate's struggle to survive with just the right amount of fear, apprehension, and excitement. Fouey's smooth shifts in character bring to life Nate's newfound family, inviting listeners to cheer on their persistence in the face of hardship and peril.
