Narrator Rebecca Yeo brings this YA fantasy to life with deft characterizations. Ren is a near-immortal being who collects the souls of the dead and walks among the living and the magical creatures of the world as she travels from England to Japan in search of her mother. The story includes characters from all around the globe, and Yeo delivers their accents and occasionally speaks in their languages with ease. In this way, she makes the novel feel real despite its fantasy premise. When the characters meet gods and demons, Yeo whispers and growls in all the right places. Yeo's narration is so good that listeners may be willing to overlook some aspects of the problematic plot. A.R.F. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2021]
