Nora Sofyan narrates an intergalactic version of "The Bachelor" with multiple species vying to impress a powerful ruler. Magical Texas innkeepers Dina and Sean agree to host the courtship competition to save a friend's life, and Sofyan is in full command of the political machinations that ensue. From scholar chickens to carnivorous trees, Sofyan plays up the story's whimsy and battle scenes with equal panache. Dina has a slight Texas accent, and her quiet devotion to Sean is one of several anchor points in this bustling audio. Sofyan gracefully individualizes the huge roster of romantic candidates visiting the inn. Each chapter is summarized by an inn guest, a device that aids listener comprehension. Listeners will not want this endlessly imaginative story to end. C.A. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2023]
