Narrator Emily Woo Zeller introduces two nonbinary characters in this fantasy about a world occupied by invaders. One character is Jebi, an artist who works with the occupiers on painting the magical seals that animate their automaton soldier and dragon. The other is the automaton dragon, whom Jebi befriends. Zeller creates a complex persona for Jebi--sometimes timid, other times bold. The character is mostly apolitical but ultimately becomes a revolutionary. Zeller builds intensity and emotion as Jebi is faced with making hard decisions as they seek to be true to their art and honor their culture and family. Zeller is adept at creating a range of relationships--from the most intimate to the most restrained. She maintains a pace that is comfortable for listeners throughout.
