Bianca Amato employs a cool, calm narration style for the first book in this fast-paced fantasy series. The story is told from the points of view of Kyra, a thief who has been on her own for as long as she can remember, and Tristam, a young knight. Amato shows her skill by portraying Tristam in an even, slightly deeper voice, while Kyra has a rougher accent and projects more emotion. Supporting characters, including members of the Assassins Guild and the Palace Guards, are depicted in unique voices that make them easy to differentiate. As Kyra and Tristam form an unlikely partnership, it's Kyra's story that evolves. Amato shows Kyra's struggle with who she is and the choices she's made by varying her tone. Listeners will eagerly await the next installment. E.N. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
