Fantasy • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Xe Sands creates a gritty and entirely believable voice for Ivy Gamble, a P.I. who is recounting the investigation of a gruesome murder case at Osthorne Academy for Young Mages. Sands captivates listeners with a fatigued yet steady delivery of the first-person story and creates an atmosphere of intrigue with masterful pacing. Ivy's anxiety about taking on her first murder case is amplified by the fact that she's the non-magical twin sister of a powerful mage who teaches at Osthorne. Sands wraps listeners in the tension of discovering who murdered a much loved teacher, along with Ivy's hopes of reconciliation with her sister and a promising romance with a husky-voiced physical magic teacher. A compulsively engaging mystery full of magic and liars. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019]
