Romantic Fiction • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Full-cast romance is rare, but THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING requires it and makes ideal use of it. In the fantasy world of Triton, four royal couples must marry to fulfill a prophecy and defeat a feared Beast. Aramus (Jakobi Diem) and Ha-Lah (Joniece Abbott Pratt), Cassius (John Hartley) and Elena (Stella Bloom), True (Hartley) and Farah (Clara Francesca), Mars (Lance Greenfield) and Silence (Sarah Coomes) gather to wed and make plans while a religious cult schemes against them. The arranged marriages yield surprise romance in this addictive audio. Each narrator creates magnificent characterizations with various accents that provide clarity and engage the listener. As the story moves among 14 narrators, volume levels remain remarkably even. Silence, Elena, and Mars may tell more of the tale, but there's no weak link in this sensual, complex series opener. C.A.
