Allyson Johnson narrates a fantasy romance with dual storylines. While there are a great many characters and a complicated plot, she capably navigates them. Kyara is an assassin who longs to escape; Johnson steeps her portrayal with melancholy. Darvyn has been a member of the Keepers of the Promise for years and chafes at the hierarchy in the group; Johnson highlights the tension simmering in him. Zeli is a servant of a rich man's daughter who knows her luck can vanish in an instant; Johnson balances optimism and pragmatism in her depiction. Numerous secondary characters are well developed. The plot is somewhat overlong, and the story ends on a cliff-hanger, but Johnson's strong narration overcomes these slight flaws. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2019]
