by | Read by Cherise Boothe, Larry Herron

Fantasy • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrators Cherise Boothe and Larry Herron work together to bring listeners a rich listening experience that maximizes the fantastic world at the heart of this epic. Herron's baritone calls up another world, full of royalty, magic, and disaster. The chapters he narrates as Djola, the ruling magician of Arkhysia, resound with his vibrant performance. This sets up a lively contrast with the chapters presented by Boothe, as Awa, a powerful wood sprite. The characters, like the narrators, cooperate to create a tale of daring survival against apocalyptic odds. Those who love fantasy will find much to admire in this title. The world-building is extensive and expertly handled by the narrators. This audiobook is best listened to during a long drive or a quiet evening with few distractions.
