THE MERCILESS ONES The Gilded Ones, Book 2

by | Read by Imani Jade Powers

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 14.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Expert narration by Imani Jade Powers adds to the personalities of the characters in Forna's second installment of The Gilded Ones. Powers's voices, inflections, and interpretations will inspire listeners to seek out the first in the series if they haven't already heard it. The complex plot continues the story of Deka, a teenaged girl who was born with the precious yet feared gold blood, which gives her special powers even in the face of the prejudice against her. Powers's narration portrays Deka's struggles as she fights in the war that was started when she freed the goddesses in the ancient Otera kingdom. Those looking for creative, diverse characters and solid YA fantasy with a little romance should look no further. C.F. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2022]
