THE WITCH KING The Witch King Duology, Book 1

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dani Martineck

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Trans, queer witch Wyatt Croft--portrayed by narrator Dani Martineck-- escaped the fae kingdom where he was raised to find freedom in the human world. After years without the pressure of fae expectations, Wyatt is taken by surprise when his betrothed--a fae prince named Emyr--shows up to bring him home. Unperturbed by Wyatt's transgender identity and insisting they fulfill their nuptial contract, Emyr attempts to rekindle their friendship and balance the needs of his kingdom--while Wyatt plans sabotage. Martineck characterizes Wyatt with realistic emotion, bringing his snarky stubbornness, troubling past, and teenage flirtations to life. Emyr's voice is more restrained, with playful undertones that are delightful to hear. This fantasy blends explorations of race, class, colonialism, sexuality, gender, rebellion, and romance without being heavy-handed. H.C.
