The National People's Voice speaks for Sanmarian and all of Kael. For 15 years, they have ruled Kael in relative peace. For 15 years, they have quietly snuffed out dissent wherever they found it. Rose Abernethy and Beo Mataya are two strangers drawn together by one thing alone: Red Sunrise, a book no one else seems to have read. A book only two types of people ever ask about - collectors...and the NPV. A book both Rose and Beo feel was written just for them. As winter falls in Sanmarian's cobbled streets and the 15 years of seeming calm seethe into violent protests in the city square, Red Sunrise's secrets pull Rose and Beo into the twisted mysteries of Sanmarian's past and into the center of a forgotten tragedy that inked itself into the city's very blood.
Where does Look to the Sun rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Emmie Mears has a very distinct style - I've listened to everything she has written and published on audible. I preferred her Storme series but I was certainly not disappointed.
I will listen to almost anything narrated by Amber Benson - she has the rare ability to change the inflection and the tone of her voice. This assists the listener in identifying exactly which character is "speaking" and everything they're feeling. The quality of this audio-book as a result was fantastic.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Look to the Sun?

Any additional comments?
As you read this book you see an all too real future as it deals with the rise of persecution towards those who dare to be “deviant”. A rich setting with beautifully drawn characters. Emmie has written a story which is so deeply honest and causes its readers/listeners to truly consider the world we are in and the world we are moving towards.
