Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Lameece Issaq, Amin El Gamal

Fantasy • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Narrators Lameece Issaq and Amin El Gamal deliver this exciting fantasy audiobook full of pirates and monsters. The legendary Amina al-Sirafi settles peacefully into retirement, content to raise her daughter and put her storied career of piracy behind her. But a wealthy woman's kidnapped granddaughter and the reward promised for her safe return call Amina back for one last adventure. Issaq voices Amina with sardonic wit and confidence. As she occasionally speaks to her scribe, Jamal, who is recording her biography, sound effects like rustling maps, knocking on doors, and a moving microphone immerse listeners in her tales. Jamal, voiced by El Gamal, connects Amina's narrative with the legendary artifacts and people she meets along the way, providing a variety of unique voices for the latter. A.K.R.
