    The half-mad Prince Boleso has been slain by a noblewoman he had intended to defile. It falls to Lord Ingrey kin Wilfcliff to transport the prince to his burial place and to bring the accused killer, Lady Ijada, to judgment. The road he travels with his burden and his prisoner is fraught with danger. But in the midst of political chaos, magic has the fiercer hold on Ingrey's destiny, and Ijada herself may turn out to be the only one he dares trust.

    Kim says: "excellent story marred by tedious pausing"
    "great book, poor narrrator"
    Overall

    McMaster-Bujold wrote a good novel, interesting characters one can care about and in the realm of the best book; The Curse of Chalion. This narrator's style is so annoying that it is hard to concentrate on the story. She ends each sentence as if it were a proclamation, or as if it were a question. When speaking as a character she was much better using normal acting skills to portray the character. This is the only narrator I have heard in about 100 Audible books that actively detracts from the book experience.

    Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port.

    Mark says: "Good Ole Sci Fi"
    "Boring"
    Overall

    I was quite disappointed after seeing the stars of other reviews. I could give it a 2.5 for good grammar, but I definitely will avoid these authors in future. The characters are minimally drawn with lifeless attempts at humor in a hopeless attempt to create personalities. Mildly interesting alien interactions, great for putting yourself to sleep.
