The pairing of George Guidall's narration with Helene Wecker's writing fully immerses listeners in this lushly detailed historical fantasy. Guidall's tone and style very much suit the era--the early years of the 1900s leading up to WWI--and the setting--mostly Manhattan's Lower East Side. This sequel to THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI follows the fortunes of Chava, a golem working as a baker, and Ahmad, who uses his jinn powers as a metalsmith--both of them outsiders who take solace in each other's company, despite their differences. The web of lives interconnected with theirs expands until the novel's denouement, when the power of community becomes clear. Thanks to Wecker's and Guidall's combined storytelling skills, listeners will care about every character's journey and be entranced to the last word.
