Fantasy • 19.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Shiromi Arserio narrates an epic feminist fantasy. Princess Malini is in exile, with only Priya, a member of a secret religious group, as her servant. Together they seek to upend the cruel regime that oppresses them. Arserio does well with the wide range of emotions that Malini and Priya experience during their quest for freedom. However, the sheer number of characters in this audiobook is a challenge—there are just too many for Arserio to differentiate. As a result, the intricately crafted plot becomes deeply confusing. Those who persevere will be rewarded with a rich fantasy that transcends the narration. K.M.P. 2022 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2021]
