Narrator Amielynn Abellera's spirited reading of this loose retelling of I, CLAUDIUS will keep listeners riveted with her unique characterizations and theatrical delivery. With a limp, speech impediment, and heart condition, Claudia doesn't fit the model of the suave politician, but during her first year at Imperial Day Academy, a posh Los Angeles prep school, she is swept into the political machine. Abellera's depictions of Imperial Day's elite alternate between laugh-aloud funny and chilling. Students include surfer-boy drug dealers, venomous homecoming queens, and quirky sidekicks. Abellera voices Claudia perfectly, highlighting her hesitation and bewilderment but also revealing her resolve as she gains confidence and navigates through corruption, conspiracies, and greed. A thoroughly engaging audiobook with thrills, romance, and intrigue. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
