From the opening of this audiobook, narrator Lauren Ezzo gives an edgy, anxious tension to each word. Wren details how the blight--a quicksilver-like substance that distorts everything it touches--has leapt from farm to farm near Hollow's End, tainting the soil and invading both its animal and human inhabitants, transforming them into zombie-like creatures operating as a single unit. With her ex-boyfriend Derek's help, Wren finally realizes how to correct the sins of their fathers to save their community. Ezzo's deft performance of this dystopian fantasy is crisp. Changes in volume and pacing as Wren and Derek process their situation and deal with threats make this a compelling listen. S.D.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
