Caught between three royal siblings in a literal race for the throne of Orkena, Zahru has the misfortune of being selected as the human sacrifice that the victor will make at the finish line. Though she possesses magic, her gift as an animal whisperer isn't likely to save her. However, as she comes to know the princes, she gains a better understanding of her unique abilities and how valuable they are, especially whenâin one caseâthose gifts are augmented by what might be love. A great cross-country race, sibling rivalry, magic gifts (or lack thereof), and unlikely love all come together in a delicious stew of adventure. Characters are enhanced by some glimpses into what powers their actions, rather than being stock figures with mythic trappings, and as a result, readers will bond with even those who appear to be the bad guys. As in other fantasies, magical ability and ability type help determine someone's value, but Mae bestows additional complexity on her characters by deliberately exploring the human traits that shape them as well. Grades 8-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
