This debut novel is full of politics and magic. Narrator Sofia Zervudachi strikes just the right tone--introspective but self-assured--as Rora tells her story. Zervudachi creates a mature persona that is consistent with the heroine's age and struggle to survive after she and her brother flee their village during a massacre. Now Rora must save her best friend, the king's youngest son, who has caught the deadly illness that is decimating the kingdom. On her quest to save her friend, Rora is accompanied by her brother and the king's oldest son, the heir to the throne. Zervudachi shows Rora's determination as the three characters try to work together. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
