    A unicorn is not supposed to survive the death of its rider, but Majherri did. Now he is a pariah, mistrusted by the Greater Herd. To reclaim his lost honor and status, he will entrust the remnants of his life to a new human female while unraveling the mystery of his continued existence.

    What did you love best about Rider: Spirals of Destiny: Book 1?

    I haven't seen unicorns used this way before.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christine Padovan???s performances?

    The narrator was plesant voice. The only problem was the narrator used a falsetto voice to voice one of the instructors. The voice was very shrill and annoying. Otherwise the narration was vary well preformed and I would listen to a book narrated by this narrator again.

    You'd think being a Prince in a vast intergalactic empire would be about as good as it gets, particularly when Princes are faster, smarter, and stronger than normal humans. Not to mention being mostly immortal. But it isn't as great as it sounds. Princes need to be hard to kill - as Khemri learns the minute he becomes one - for they are always in danger. Their greatest threat? Other Princes. Every Prince wants to become Emperor, and the surest way to do so is to kill, dishonor, or sideline any potential competitor.

    What made the experience of listening to A Confusion of Princes the most enjoyable?

    The narration was done well. The story was well paced. The Conversations were done well so you could tell the difference between regular conversations and the mind to mind conversations.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the slightly dystopian view of the Empire. With princes who could do anything except be truly free to do what they wanted.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    At the end of the battle. The main character thinks he's going to die for the second and final time he states that he failed the test of becoming an adjuster but he passed the test of becoming human
