Narrator Katharine McEwan will leave listeners loath to finish this audiobook, and her fully faceted performance lingers even after it has ended. Every year Gilene burns as a sacrifice to the empire so that the other women in her village don’t have to. But when she’s spirited away by the famous gladiator Azarion so that he can claim his birthright, everything she knows about her abilities will be tested, and she may not be able to escape the burn of his love. In a fantasy romance that is “Game of Thrones” meets SPARTACUS, McEwan enthralls listeners with depictions of characters living in a brutal world. Her narration is so emotionally satisfying and thoroughly entertaining that one can say she delivers this enemies-to-lovers story with utter perfection. A.L.
