The Acktus Trials (Part I of The Spoken Books Uprising)

Reading books can get you killed. A 90,000-word novel for only 99 cents! In the land of Oration, magic exists only when read aloud from rare books. The catch? All those able to cast magic are enslaved, never taught to read. Baztian is one such slave, content with the safety of anonymity. But when Baz learns to read, he’ll become the symbol of an uprising, whether he wants to or not.
