Allyson Johnson narrates an epic fantasy romance set in a world not too dissimilar from our own. While Jasminda is shunned as an outcast in her homeland of Elsira, she still doesn't want it to fall to invading forces. So she works with Jack to protect the country that doesn't value her as she deserves. Johnson does an excellent job with the two main characters, making them sound believably young but not naïve. The secondary characters also fair well, with a wide range of ages, positions, and personalities portrayed convincingly. A few characters have accents that are inconsistent with the overall world building, but that's a minor quibble. Overall, this is a solid performance of an enjoyable story.
