Narrator Katherine Kellgren throws herself into this narration, and the result is a dramatic listening experience. In the distant future, the world has returned to largely pre-industrial societies, and one of them, the Tearling, is suffering from a lack of good leadership. But now that Princess Kelsea Raleigh Glynn has come of age, things just might change. From time to time, Kellgren ramps up the emotion in a display of melodrama that is briefly distracting. Despite those occasional disruptions, her imperious tone fits this story of royal intrigue. And since it’s told from the third-person point of view, there’s no conflict between her natural voice and that of the teenaged main character.
