Publisher's Summary

The world on the other side of the rift: Kelewan, a land seething with political intrigue and deadly conspiracies. Following the opulent panoply of Daughter of the Empire and the dazzling pageantry of Servant of the Empire comes the resounding conclusion to the Empire trilogy.

Besieged by spies and rival houses, stalked by a secret and merciless brotherhood of assassins, the brilliant Lady Mara of the Acoma faces the most deadly challenge she has ever known. The fearsome Black Robes see Mara as the ultimate threat to their ancient power. In search of allies who will join her against them, Mara must travel beyond civilization's borders and even into the hives of the alien cho-ja. As those near and dear to her fall victim to many enemies, Mara cries out for vengeance. Drawing on all of her courage and guile, she prepares to fight her greatest battle of all - for her life, her home, and the Empire itself.

Classic from a huge Universe.

This title, and the other two in the trilogy, from the Rift War universe is a great side story that stands alone on its own. Court intrigue on the level of R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones, viewed from a single house as it struggles to make its place in world. If you are rooting for Sansa Stark you will root for Mara of the Acoma.

Good conclusion to a good series

My only criticism is that the narrator really needed to learn how to pronounce "chitin," "epitome," and several other uncommon words.

Spoken words bring the work alive

I have read the series a number of times
I have waited for Audible to
bring the performance to the US market. One worries that the voice one hears when the work is read will be different but this is dead on
