The even pacing and somber voice of Elizabeth Morton introduces the dystopian world of the United Commonwealth, formed after the Seven Stages War destroyed the land. In order to attend University, one must be chosen for the Testing. Despite her father's ominous warnings, Cia is thrilled when she's selected after graduation. Morton's voices for Cia and Tomas, her childhood friend, are clear and distinct, but the other characters sound flat and too similar. The drama of the story is intense, rising exponentially as the characters pass each stage of the Testing. Despite this intensity, Morton's narration remains flat and fails to capture the story's horror, violence, and terror. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2013]
