Narrator Ione Butler is the perfect match for this Victorian-era tale of novelty, exhibitionism, and deadly competition. Iris, an African tightrope performer in a circus, has little memory of her past. She also has a magical ability: She cannot die. Drawn into a secret society by a man who promises her all the answers, Iris agrees to become his champion. But will she end up with more hard truths than she bargained for? Butler's accent captures the upper-class members of London's elite, beautifully enhancing the setting and grounding listeners in the time period. The story features a wildly entertaining cast of characters, and Butler brings each of them to life with loads of personality and animation.
