Jennifer Aquino's expressive narration allows listeners to become immersed in this fiery political fantasy. Thanh was brought to a rival kingdom as a political hostage. While there, she had an affair with Princess Eldris, heir to that kingdom, and almost died in a supernatural fire. She returned home a much more introverted person. Now Eldris is proposing marriage to Thanh. But Thanh can't stop thinking about the mysterious girl who helped her escape the fire. Aquino's delivery highlights the political tension at the royal court. Thanh's self-doubts are also conveyed successfully. Aquino's vocal range helps listeners understand the complexity of Thanh's position. Aquino successfully portrays drama, magic, and love in this novella.
