Narrator Adjoa Andoh lends diverse accents and impressive power to this compelling fantasy from the author of space operas. Andoh portrays an ancient god, called the Strength and Patience of the Hill, with a subtle accent and a tone of growing curiosity as it describes changes over millennia. The god also addresses a certain aide, Eolo, using the second person to describe Eolo's role in current political intrigue surrounding a stolen throne. The Raven God demands the sacrifice of the Lease, or the ruler, every generation in exchange for protecting the country of Iraden. When the Lease goes missing, Eolo needs to figure out why in order to protect the rightful heir. Andoh's skill with a dynamic range of voices will propel listeners through the tales of powerful gods, complex political machinations, and revenge. E.E.C.
