Description

Set in the world of the New York Times–bestselling Winner's Trilogy, Marie Rutkoski's The Midnight Lie is an epic LGBTQ romantic fantasy about learning to free ourselves from the lies others tell us—and the lies we tell ourselves. Where Nirrim lives, crime abounds, a harsh tribunal rules, and society's pleasures are reserved for the High Kith. Life in the Ward is grim and punishing. People of her low status are forbidden from sampling sweets or wearing colors. You either follow the rules, or pay a tithe and suffer the consequences. Nirrim keeps her head down, and a dangerous secret close to her chest. But then she encounters Sid, a rakish traveler from far away, who whispers rumors that the High Kith possess magic. Sid tempts Nirrim to seek that magic for herself. But to do that, Nirrim must surrender her old life. She must place her trust in this sly stranger who asks, above all, not to be trusted. A Macmillan Audio production from Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Professional reviews

"Listeners will be swept away to the mysterious island of Herrath through narrator Justine Eyre's engrossing performance. Her varied voices and creative use of accents bring to life this rich fantasy world in which citizens live under an oppressive caste system. Lower-class Nirrim knows her place, and Eyre captures her steadfastness and na•vetŽ, but Nirrim soon begins to remember a history everyone else has forgotten. She partners with Sid, an overconfident traveler, to infiltrate the higher class in search of answers. With a slightly lower pitch Eyre dials into Sid's roguish nature, which fascinates Nirrim and turns the young women's partnership into an all-consuming romance. Eyre deftly maneuvers the twisty ending, which shifts in tone as sudden feelings of divided loyalty in Nirrim could keep the couple apart forever. J.E.C. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine"
