Publisher's Summary

Magic and murder engulf the realm of Kelewan. Fierce warlords ignite a bitter blood feud to enslave the empire of Tsuranuanni. While in the opulent Imperial courts, assassins and spy-master plot cunning and devious intrigues against the rightful heir. Now Mara, a young, untested Ruling lady, is called upon to lead her people in a heroic struggle for survival. But first she must rally an army of rebel warriors, form a pact with the alien cho-ja, and marry the son of a hated enemy. Only then can Mara face her most dangerous foe of all in his own impregnable stronghold.

An epic tale of adventure and intrigue. Daughter of the Empire is fantasy of the highest order by two of the most talented writers in the field today.

Excellent narration brings an old favorite to life

I'm always hesitant to try the audio version of a favorite book. I was so excited to see this series on Audible and am relieved to report that Tania Rodrigues narration was excellent with voice and pronunciations as I have always heard them in my head. I look forward to listening to the other two in the series.

Finally!

I've waited for Audible to get this book for a long time and it is very well done. So good to revisit this classic fantasy novel - full of intrigue and with a quite different world from your typical fantasy novel with a compelling main character and a plot that is always moving. Great read!

Interesting World/Culture

This series is one of my favorite. Another series I read as a young adult. It's still good as a "not so young" adult. A book that is good to read as a 20 something and a 50 something has a wide attraction. I did enjoy it for nostalgic reasons, but not only for that. Highly recommended if you like interesting and different worlds and cultures. #magic #femaleprotagonist #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
