Young Adult Ages 12+ • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Mapuana Makia lends her rich voice to this young adult fantasy. Hanalei, of the island Tamarind, has been living in exile since her father stole a seadragon egg. There she meets Sam, a lost prince, also from Tamarind. Together, they discover they can go home if they find the dragonfruit, a coveted treasure with great power. Makia delivers a balanced cadence and an intrigued tone when recounting the story's world-building. She lends a strong voice to the equally strong lead characters in their desperate journey to return home. Every peril is revealed with suspense, and every mystery is narrated with wonder. Makia's performance offers the total package needed for a fantasy with abundant adventure. G.M. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
