Light from Uncommon Stars by Ryka Aoki, Read by Cindy Kay
A Unique and Wholly Captivating Sci-Fi Listen
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
Cindy Kay masterfully narrates Light from Uncommon Stars, which combines a variety of genres to tell a moving story of self-acceptance and finding safety even in the bleakest of times. AudioFile’s Emily Connelly tells host Jo Reed about getting completely absorbed in Ryka Aoki’s audiobook featuring interstellar wars, a violinist’s deal with a demon, and donuts. Listeners dip into the minds of many characters over the course of the audiobook, but Kay keeps listeners on track with her melodic voice, spot-on pacing, and respectful, authentic accents.
