Narrator Emily Woo Zeller reprises her role as the listener's guide through the beguiling postapocalyptic "Borne" world. While part of a series, the story is accessible as a stand-alone with its own protagonists. Chen, Grayson, and Morse, three inextricably linked figures, traverse genetically and ethically muddled timescapes in search of resolution and redemption. Zeller's low register and unhurried pace depict ever-present menace, simmering resentment, and indestructible personal bonds between friend and foe alike. Repetition within sequences emphasizes the horrors of endless rebirth, destruction, and laboratory experiments that The Company, a faceless corporation, inflicts upon surrounding communities and the natural world. Attuned vocal characterizations of nonhuman characters-- including an isolated behemoth, a dark bird, and a mysterious blue fox--facilitate entry into this mesmerizing realm.
