Description-

  • "Narrator Jeanette Illidge delivers a resonating performance of this YA fantasy...this immersive story is hard to pause." - AudioFile Magazine

    Westworld meets The Handmaid's Tale in this stunning fantasy adventure from debut author Charlotte Nicole Davis.

    Aster, the protector
    Violet, the favorite
    Tansy, the medic
    Mallow, the fighter
    Clementine, the catalyst

    THE GOOD LUCK GIRLS

    The country of Arketta calls them Good Luck Girls—they know their luck is anything but. Sold to a "welcome house" as children and branded with cursed markings. Trapped in a life they would never have chosen.

    When Clementine accidentally murders a man, the girls risk a dangerous escape and harrowing journey to find freedom, justice, and revenge in a country that wants them to have none of those things. Pursued by Arketta's most vicious and powerful forces, both human and inhuman, their only hope lies in a bedtime story passed from one Good Luck Girl to another, a story that only the youngest or most desperate would ever believe.

    It's going to take more than luck for them all to survive.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    September 9, 2019
    In this ambitious, uneven debut, the historical Old West–flavored landscape of post–Empire Arketta sets the stage for monstrous spirits, men who trade their humanity for power, and shadowless girls with cursed tattoos called favors. When Clementine accidentally kills her first client at the Green Creek brothel, her older sister, Aster, springs into action, and alongside Clem’s best friends, transforms Clem’s accident into a shot at freedom. Sycophantic, cold Violet, the only girl there with a shadow, begs to join them, promising to lead the way to a legendary woman who can remove their favors. On their journey to find Lady Ghost and evade their cruel pursuers, the girls must decide how far they’ll go to try to escape their past. While many of the characters lack depth, Aster shines as a protagonist who harnesses her trauma and anger in a world in which her past is literally indelible. And while the plot relies on some contrivance and is sometimes overshadowed by the intricate worldbuilding, Davis creates institutions, systems, and power dynamics with real-world echoes, making the themes timely and resonant. Ages 13–up. Agent: Allison Hellegers, Rights People.

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Jeanette Illidge delivers a resonating performance of this YA fantasy in which five girls, known as Good Luck Girls, must survive a journey across the country of Arketta. Branded with marks that betray their identity, the girls are relentlessly pursued by powerful men, their mind-flaying servants, and the spirits of the dead. Illidge captures the fear and anger of girls who want more out of life than having their bodies sold. Her tone grows in confidence as they slowly gain control of their circumstances. To convey the setting, Illidge uses a slight accent, and her lovely singing voice is demonstrated in a couple of short songs. Overall, this immersive story is hard to pause.
