The first in a new trilogy, called The Broken Earth, is set in a world that is always on the verge of the apocalypse. It’s held together through the work of Orogenes, who travel the world and use magic to stabilize geologic anomalies. The storylines are set in differing time periods that weave together and cross one another. Robin Miles has an affinity for the three female narrators, who have varying points of view and distinct personalities and challenges. Her relaxed style helps to move along the world-building explication at a good pace and contrasts with the more intense segments in which she draws out the suspense and drama. Her sparing use of accents emphasizes the outsider status of some of the characters. J.E.M. 2016 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2015]
