I've not listened to very many audiobooks, but it is definitely a great one.
The story is great - strong female character defying gender stereotypes - not entirely genre, but alt-universe. Swordfighting, political intrigue and great romance.
Fantastic narration all around - made that much better during party scenes when additional voices were added to the mix. The author is fantastic, but the breadth of emotion and the different speaking styles of the additional actors really created a deeper world. Barbara Rosenblatt was terrific.
I laughed out loud a few times and got misty eyed as well. It's touching and amusing.
Definitely a treat. Have to thank Neil Gaiman Presents for turning me on to a new author - and with such panache.
