The lovely and engaging voice of narrator Julia Atwood gives protagonist Mazzy Goodwyn satisfying emotion. Atwood's youthful tone fits the girl soldier, and her cadence subtly moves the suspenseful action of this story forward. Mazzy sounds appropriately surprised when she awakens one day with a set of wings. The confusing dystopian world she lives in is in the midst of civil war and planetary climate catastrophe. Despite these, and personal loss, Mazzy stays focused. Heathcock depicts an America in crisis--political, environmental, and religious. The arc of the audiobook owes something to both fantasy and science fiction. While the authoritarian fanatics come across as especially bloodless, the calming ending balances the carnage exacted earlier in the audiobook. Atwood delivers all of it compellingly.
