THE WICKED BARGAIN by Gabe Cole Novoa, read by Vico Ortiz
MAR 24
Description Community
Vico Ortiz narrates an action-packed fantastical pirate adventure with gusto. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss the excitement of listening to Gabe Cole Novoa’s thrilling YA audiobook. Sixteen-year-old Mar has to hide twice over—they wear a chest binder, and they have strong magical control over fire and ice that demands to be used. Slipping seamlessly between English and Spanish, Ortiz puts listeners firmly in Mar’s point of view with their appealingly husky voice and dramatic pacing. Listeners will be swept up in the action with shipwrecks, deals with the devil, and dramatic battles both magical and piratical.
