Narrator Emily Woo Zeller gives an emotionally attuned performance of this family-driven science-fiction audiobook. A family is torn apart by son Jakob's disappearance and the ensuing years of bitter recriminations and grief that followed. Then Jakob returns to Earth as an intergalactic soldier who protects an important code from a merciless enemy. His unexpected arrival forces his sisters, Evie and Kass, to confront long-held grievances and reassess their priorities. Zeller deftly shifts between the siblings' perspectives as they are increasingly drawn into their brother's enigmatic mission. Her tone and cadence reflect the shifting weight of Kass's determination to hold it together and Evie's singular search for truth as they make their cathartic journeys toward healing and closure. Smart pacing and thoughtful characterizations combine for a memorable experience. J.R.T. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2022]
