Narrator Rosie Jones gives an elegant performance of this Arthurian retelling, full of laugh-out-loud humor. When Emry Merlin's twin brother is summoned to become the next wizard despite the fact that he lacks magical talent, Emry disguises her gender and takes his place. Studying magic at Arthur's side gives her front-row access to all the courtly drama, but falling in love with the prince only makes things more complicated. While most of the audiobook is delivered spectacularly and Jones smoothly modulates between a wide range of character voices, a portion of the humor is lost in her overly serious tone. Nonetheless, she captures all the tantalizing intensity and magic of forbidden romance. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2021]
