THE LADY OR THE LION Marghazar Trials, Book 1

by | Read by Deepti Gupta

Young Adult Ages 12+ • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Deepti Gupta narrates this tale inspired by the classic short story "The Lady, or the Tiger?"--as well as Pakistani lore and culture. The young adult story mixes intrigue, mystery, and forbidden romance, and Gupta's deliberate performance pairs beautifully with Qureshi's text. The grandfather of Durkhanai Miangul, the crown princess of Marghazar, has been blamed for a deadly assault at a summit where leaders from surrounding districts are gathered. Durkhanai seeks to find out who orchestrated the attack. While she does that, a mysterious illness sweeps through the villages, and she becomes entangled with Ambassador Asfandyar Afridi. Listeners will be enraptured by palace intrigue, secrets, deception, and the nimbleness of Gupta's flawless performance. P.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
