Avi Roque is the perfect narrator for this queer YA fantasy. Gem is a nonbinary teen just trying to survive high school in Gracie, Georgia. Their life is upended when a new girl explains that the nightmares they've been having are memories and that they're the reincarnation of an ancient god--one of many who fled their home world long ago. Chaos and adventure ensue. The novel hits all the expected beats of YA fantasy, and Roque infuses it with even more life and drama. Their energetic voice is full of the bewilderment, excitement, and trepidation Gem feels. Their fluid shifts between character voices and quick pacing will keep listeners engaged. Fans of queer fantasy, found family, and stories of hidden magic will not be disappointed. L.S. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2023]
