    Lededje Y'breq is one of the Intagliated, her marked body bearing witness to a family shame, her life belonging to a man whose lust for power is without limit. Prepared to risk everything for her freedom, her release, when it comes, is at a price, and to put things right, she will need the help of the Culture....

    Sarah says: "Excellent story, excellent narration"
    "Confusing storyline"
    Overall

    This book is definitely unique, presenting a complex, interwoven series of events that eventually come together... more or less. The author creates a dizzying array of characters, which I found difficult to keep straight despite Peter Kenny's amazing array of voices. The narration is truly astounding, with accents, pitch, and timbre that seem impossible to come from one person. I found the end of the story a bit unsatisfying.

    This story is vast and intricate. The story HEAVILY uses the "F" word, which I found somewhat offensive. If that doesn't bother you, and you have the ability to play this story in a way where you can focus on the details and personages, and if you like bizarre storylines full of new and unique ideas, then you might enjoy this book.
