Emily Woo Zeller's fast-paced narration underscores the life-and-death stakes in this speculative sci-fi thriller, which traverses two near-future timeframes. Scientist Gabrielle White accidentally discovers an astonishing technology for transferring consciousness into the body of another person. Fast-forward 25 years, and a young woman, Annami, navigates a disturbing future in which Gabrielle's technology allows bodies to be rented and abused. Both women become targets, and neither can trust the realities and alliances that shift around them. Reflecting this instability, Zeller employs a staccato tone that fuels the story's action and adds to its growing mood of agitation. Listeners will be captivated by Zeller's bold, even strident, voicings of Gabrielle and Annami as she channels their fierce resilience and courage in a world in which nothing is as it seems.
