Fantasy • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Shiromi Arserio skillfully balances multiple perspectives in an epic fantasy world ruled by women. When no new girls are born for several years, the five queendoms are thrown into upheaval. Arserio's narration captures a variety of distinct characters who find themselves in emotional situations: warrior women desperately fighting for their lives, other women fiercely protecting their loved ones, and a resentful sorceress scheming behind the scenes. This wholly engrossing audiobook will absorb listeners in the politics and traditions of a world on the verge of war. Arserio's careful pacing allows the story to unfold slowly and lets listeners focus on the world-building and the unfolding mystery. A.K.R. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
