by | Read by A.J. Beckles, Jordan Cobb

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Jordan Cobb is the perfect guide through this story based on West African folklore. With the addition of narrator A.J. Beckles, the dual narration enhances the listening experience as Karina and Malik try to resist their growing attraction while attempting to destroy each other. Cobb's strong voice captures the ferocity in Crown Princess Karina's actions as she attempts to regain a position of power. For Karina's schemes, Cobb uses a slower cadence. Beckles's portrayal is filled with both heartache and love as he embodies Malik's dedication to save his sister, Nadia. Listeners will be engaged by his vocal diversity used for the storytellers and other minor characters. The shocking ending begs listeners to mark their calendars for the next audiobook in the series.
