Fantasy • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jude Owusu narrates a vibrant nautical fantasy featuring a ship made from the bones of dragons and populated with criminals. Centuries after the total disappearance of dragons, the sighting of one lone creature propels two nations into a race to capture it. Owusu gives lively and colorful accents to the staggering cast of characters, including the enslaved Gullaime, a slave birdlike creature used to control the winds via magic. Owusu's narration balances humor and gravitas while capturing the story's strange nautical vocabulary and magical concepts. Fascinating lore, memorable characters, and snappy banter fill the ears, thanks to Owusu's sweeping narration. It's a great start to a new series that will ensnare listeners with a unique story and an immersive world that seems tailor-made for an audio experience. J.M.M.
