Emily Woo Zeller's fierce narration perfectly suits this sweeping fantasy retelling of the Chinese classic "Water Margin." Lin Chong is a highly respected arms instructor for the Emperor's soldiers despite her gender. She's unwilling to challenge the sexism and corruption around her, but when her entire life and career are suddenly ripped away, she is recruited by the Bandits of Liangshan, fierce women outlaws who fight for justice. Zeller voices glorious action-packed fight scenes with carefully intensifying pacing to keep listeners on edge. Her voice for Lu Da is particularly notable, hilariously melodramatic and bold. She's sure to be among listeners' favorite characters. As Zeller takes full advantage of relentless villains and compelling unexpected heroes, her kaleidoscopic voice enhances a large, dynamic cast of characters. A.K.R.
