A full cast of talented narrators taps into the darkly magical atmosphere of Bardugo’s graphic novel prequel to the Shadow and Bone trilogy. Primary narrator Ben Barnes depicts the villainous Darkling when he was known as Eryk, a young teen who hungered for companionship and stability. Eryk and his mother find refuge in a remote mountain village, where they are safe as long as they conceal Eryk's unique powers. With a richly resonant voice, Barnes sympathetically portrays Eryk’s desire for acceptance while also hinting at his potential for ruthlessness. Supporting narrators give voice to a wide range of villagers, from irrepressible children to battle-hardened elders. An evocative soundscape, incorporating everything from the clip-clopping of horses’ hooves to the sounds of the night, further enhances this spellbinding audio. S.A.H.
