Narrator Elise Arsenault establishes a passionate voice for 12-year-old Marya Lupa, who longs to find purpose in Illyria, a world in which girls and women have little value. As boys come of age, those with magic become sorcerers who must defend their people from a magical force called the Dread. Soon after Marya's brother is passed over as a future sorcerer, she is required to attend Dragonmir Academy, a boarding school for troubled girls. Arsenault succeeds in capturing the drama as Marya starts to uncover hidden truths and question her world and the rules that have held her and other women back for so long. Listeners and fantasy fans alike will be intrigued by this fantastical tale. M.D. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2021]
