Narrator Lauren Fortgang channels the currents of magic and intrigue running throughout Bardugo's layered historical fantasy. Scullery maid Luzia Cotado hopes to remain unnoticed, but when she uses a spell to restore burned bread and fix a torn dress, her ability to cast "little miracles" comes to light. Forced to compete in a dangerous magic competition, she is tutored by the darkly enigmatic Guillén Santángel, who has a mysterious past. Fortgang's expert characterizations capture Luzia's sharp intelligence, frustration at being dismissed and used, and growing confidence in her own abilities. Fortgang portrays Santángel with a cold gruffness that gradually transforms into cautious tenderness as his feelings for Luzia deepen. Skillful narration combined with an enchanting storyline makes for great listening. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
