Description

"Narrator Avita Jay manages a large cast of characters in this fantasy...Jay captures the growing affection and trust between Csorwe and those she enlists to help her. Most importantly, Jay's narration captures Csorwe's manner and personality as she transforms from a meek priestess to a formidable character." -- AudioFile Magazine A. K. Larkwood's The Unspoken Name is a stunning debut fantasy about an orc priestess turned wizard's assassin. What if you knew how and when you will die? Csorwe does—she will climb the mountain, enter the Shrine of the Unspoken, and gain the most honored title: sacrifice. But on the day of her foretold death, a powerful mage offers her a new fate. Leave with him, and live. Turn away from her destiny and her god to become a thief, a spy, an assassin—the wizard's loyal sword. Topple an empire, and help him reclaim his seat of power. But Csorwe will soon learn—gods remember, and if you live long enough, all debts come due. A Macmillan Audio production from Tor Books “In the vein of Le Guin's magnificent Tombs of Atuan—if Arha the Eaten One got to grow up to be a swordswoman mercenary in thrall to her dubious wizard mentor. I love this book so much."—Arkady Martine, author of A Memory Called Empire “Hooked me in from the first page and never let go. Fabulous, in every meaning of the word."—Jenn Lyons, author of Ruin of Kings

Professional reviews

"Narrator Avita Jay manages a large cast of characters in this fantasy, which begins The Serpent Gates series. She employs a handful of accents to help the listener. Csorwe is an Orc priestess who has been raised to be sacrificed on her fourteenth birthday to an old and ruthless god known as the Unspoken One. After being convinced to run away by a wizard, she becomes his assistant and begins a quest that has the potential to make her a woman of great power. Jay captures the growing affection and trust between Csorwe and those she enlists to help her. Most importantly, Jay's narration captures Csorwe's manner and personality as she transforms from a meek priestess to a formidable character. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
