The last audiobook in the Red Queen series opens as Mare, still reeling from the shock of Cal's betrayal, marshals her forces in preparation for the epic war to come. Departing from the single-narrator model of the previous books, Vikas Adam and Charlie Thurston portray Cal and Maven's grimly focused determination. Amanda Dolan channels Mare, the fiery lightning girl who is battered but far from broken. Additional narrators add depth and provide welcome insight into the characters, but some performances are more nuanced than others. The story is bogged down with lengthy interior scenes, and at times the solidly talented narrators seem mired, too, unable to bring sorely needed momentum and zest. Nonetheless, this audiobook should appeal to the series' fans. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
