"Bahni Turpin's breathtaking narration of this exhilarating novel will keep listeners rooted to their seats, listening intently. ...
Turpin's captivating narration, with incantations sung in Yoruba, intense battles, and lively, devastating dialogue, makes this an audiobook not to be missed." -AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner

"Talented narrator [Bahni] Turpin's reading amplifies Adeyemi's creativity and attention to detail. Through her authentic pronunciations and musical chants, she immerses listeners in the Orïshan culture and fantasy realm and allows characters' powerful emotions to drive the book's action...This excellent, refreshing performance of Adeyemi's exciting debut is recommended for all collections where fantasy is popular." -Booklist, Starred Review

"[Bahni] Turpin's bold reading of Adeyemi's Afro-futurist fantasy solidifies her reputation as one of the best voice actors working today. ...Turpin's sonorous incantation of prayers, as well as her brisk pacing during exciting moments of danger, will have listeners on the edge of their seats. Her depiction of the king's rage is also downright terrifying, as Turpin is unafraid to roar. Her hypnotic performance is one to be reckoned with." -Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
