Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Robin Miles

Science Fiction • 12.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2000

On the planet Toussaint, colonized by people from the Caribbean, the Robber Queen is simply a myth, a character to play during carnival. But after Tan-Tan and her father are banished for a crime he committed, Tan-Tan must become the Robber Queen to gain magical powers and save herself. Robin Miles’s voice is deep, rich, and rolling. The story is written in a kind of patois, and her narration makes it easy to understand—probably easier than reading it in print. She effortlessly creates unique characters—whether male, female, young, old, sentient birds, ghosts, or aliens. The tale is filled with lively writing and clever wordplay, and it’s delightful listening to Miles have fun performing it. G.D.
