Birthright Series, Book 1

In 2083, chocolate and coffee are illegal, paper is hard to find, water is carefully rationed, and New York City is rife with crime and poverty. And yet, for Anya Balanchine, the sixteenyearold daughter of the city's most notorious (and dead) crime boss, life is fairly routine. It consists of going to school, taking care of her siblings and her dying grandmother, trying to avoid falling in love with the new assistant D.A.'s son, and avoiding her loser exboyfriend. That is until her ex is accidently poisoned by the chocolate her family manufactures and the police think she's to blame. Suddenly, Anya finds herself thrust unwillingly into the spotlight—at school, in the news, and most importantly, within her mafia family.

    In this first installment of the Birthright series, Zevin (Elsewhere) paints a disturbing picture of a not-so-distant future, when the economy has shrunk along with natural resources, and precious luxury items—like chocolate, coffee, and newly manufactured clothing—are banned in the United States. In crime-ridden New York City, 16-year-old Anya Balanchine, the orphaned daughter of a renowned black-market chocolatier boss, has more than her share of responsibilities, trying to keep her siblings safe and care for her ailing grandmother. When she is wrongly accused of poisoning her ex-boyfriend with tainted chocolate produced by her father's company, Anya faces one of the most difficult trials of her life. To complicate matters, she is falling in love with the wrong boy, Win, the son of a prominent prosecutor in the DA's office. Anya must decide between following her heart or fulfilling her duties as new head of the family. Offering the excitement of a crime drama and the allure of forbidden romance, this introduction to a reluctant Godfather-in-the making will pique the interest of dystopia-hungry readers.

  • AudioFile Magazine In 2083, Anya Balanchine struggles to keep her siblings away from the family's illegal chocolate business. Ilyana Kadushin's tempered reading perfectly suits Anya's attempts to keep her emotions hidden under the surface. After being accused of poisoning her ex-boyfriend, Anya reluctantly begins to work with her family to investigate the conspiracy behind the tainted chocolate--a plot aimed at bringing about the downfall of the Balanchine family. Anya also tries to keep her distance from the district attorney's attractive son. With believable Russian accents for older family members and deliberate timing that deftly builds suspense, Kadushin will keep listeners riveted with this futuristic story of a mob family. J.M.
