This fantasy audiobook benefits from the storytelling talents of narrator Korey Jackson. He takes listeners on a magic-infused journey with a compelling cast of characters as they challenge the status quo in an ancient city called Bassa, which is reminiscent of early cultures in West Africa. Danso, an academic, has a thirst for knowledge that leads him beyond Bassa's borders, seeking answers that might save the empire. Jackson delivers the story in a warm, friendly tone. His crisp diction emphasizes the characters' impassioned dialogue. The story is a fun mix of elements--systems of magic, Bassan politics, and other cultural details. This is a great find for listeners who are craving more diversity in the fantasy genre. N.H. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
