Description

Disaffected teen historian Claudia McCarthy never expected to be in charge of Imperial Day Academy, but by accident, design, or scheme, she is pulled into the tumultuous and high-profile world of the Senate and Honor Council. Suddenly, Claudia is wielding power over her fellow students that she never expected to have and isn't sure she wants. Claudia vows to use her power to help the school. But there are forces aligned against her: shocking scandals, tyrants waiting in the wings, and political dilemmas with no easy answers. As Claudia struggles to be a force for good in the universe, she wrestles with the question: does power inevitably corrupt?

Professional reviews

"Narrator Amielynn Abellera's spirited reading of this loose retelling of I, CLAUDIUS will keep listeners riveted with her unique characterizations and theatrical delivery. With a limp, speech impediment, and heart condition, Claudia doesn't fit the model of the suave politician, but during her first year at Imperial Day Academy, a posh Los Angeles prep school, she is swept into the political machine. Abellera's depictions of Imperial Day's elite alternate between laugh-aloud funny and chilling. Students include surfer-boy drug dealers, venomous homecoming queens, and quirky sidekicks. Abellera voices Claudia perfectly, highlighting her hesitation and bewilderment but also revealing her resolve as she gains confidence and navigates through corruption, conspiracies, and greed. A thoroughly engaging audiobook with thrills, romance, and intrigue. S.A.H. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
