In Fevered Star, five talented narrators continue an epic fantasy story of political upheaval, magic, and destiny in the Meridian. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the audiobook that takes listeners into the tense weeks after the explosive ending of Black Sun. Serapio, narrated with intensity and vulnerability by Shaun Taylor-Corbett, is struggling to maintain his humanity after becoming a living avatar of a god. Each character wants something from the Crow God, and the narrators propel the story forward in turn, expertly conveying the tangled fears and ambitions of the many players. Listeners will be left anticipating part three of this tense series inspired by pre-Columbian societies.
