MOON WITCH, SPIDER KING Dark Star Trilogy, Book 2

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bahni Turpin

Fantasy • 30.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Bahni Turpin shows extraordinary range in her expert narration of this sprawling fantasy, the second installment of the Dark Star Trilogy. In MOON WITCH, SPIDER KING, listeners are treated to the fascinating and tumultuous 177-year life story of the witch Sogolon—from her painful childhood to her rise to extraordinary power. Turpin smoothly navigates this complicated story, enlivening the unique rhythm of James’s prose. She embodies Sogolon completely, collapsing the distance between narrator and character. But that’s only the beginning—she also gives life to dozens of other characters, reinventing her voice for each one. She perfects high-pitched whines and deep-throated growls, dozens of accents, voices melodic and rough. Her stunning narration will keep listeners riveted through every minute of this epic fantasy.
