Narrator Grace Rolek draws listeners into a Japanese-inspired fantasy packed with spirits, adventure, and danger. Otori Miuko has never lived up to her father's expectations, or fit into the restrictive patriarchal society of Awara. Rolek captures Miuko's spirited voice and longing for more. But when adventure arrives in the form of a transformative curse by a demon, she's thrust down a new, dangerous path. She sets out with a mischievous magpie spirit, who has a goofy but charming voice, and meets many new human and inhuman characters along the way. Chee has invented a rich magical world with its own language and crafted an intricately woven story about power and oppression. Rolek enlivens each character, makes the language and world seem real, and keeps up with the fast-paced plot. E.E.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
