Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Rasha Zamamiri

Fantasy • 18.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Rasha Zamamiri narrates a unique epic fantasy inspired by the region of North Africa. Touraine was abducted as a child and forced to become the ideal soldier. Her loyalty to the empire is tested when she's sent back to her homeland to quash a budding rebellion. Zamamiri nails accents and from time to time even sounds like a different narrator as she gives this story a surprising vibrancy. The voice she creates for Touraine steals the show with its deep sense of inner struggle, but each person Touraine comes across sounds equally vivid in Zamamiri's steadfast narration. Social commentary is paired with fantasy adventure brimming with romance and thrills. All is voiced by an incredible--and perfectly suited--narrator. J.M.M.
