I have had the greatest pleasure these past few weeks of listening to the new audio edition of EOLYN. Read by the incomparable Darla Middlebrook, this interpretation made me laugh, and then cry, in all the right moments. It filled me with joy and fear, love and heartbreak, warmth, humor, friendship and loss in ways that surprised me, given how intimately I already knew the story. HIGH MAGA [is] narrated by the extraordinarily talented Darla Middlebrook. Darla, who also narrated the audio edition of EOLYN, did an amazing job with this second novel, though it represents a much darker journey than its predecessor. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Darla again, and I couldn’t be more pleased with her work on this novel.
