    An enchanting historical epic of grand passion and adventure, this debut novel tells the captivating story of one of India's most controversial empresses, a woman whose brilliance and determination trumped myriad obstacles and whose love shaped the course of the Mughal Empire.

    Jersey Girl says: "Great narration, love story & history"
    "A good historical novel"
    Overall

    I really knew very little about the Emperors in India in the 16th and 17th century and therefore I really enjoyed this fictionalized novel of real events. It was very interesting to read of the court life and the hardships faced by those around the court, as well as the historical figures.

    This is one of those books that is better listened to than read, because the reader's accent gives a charming dimension to the story.

    There is a sequel to this book and another by the same author and I plan to listen to both of them.

    Martin Clark has been praised as "part John Grisham, part Hunter S.Thompson, and part sheer grit". Mason Hunt returns to his small Virginia hometown as the county's commonwealth attorney. Mason's brother Gates, who's currently serving a 20 year prison term, thinks Mason should have enough pull to set him free. And when Mason refuses, Gates hatches a plan to destroy his brother's life with a secret they both swore they'd take to the grave.

    Bee Keeper says: "Original, Engaging - Time and Money Well Spent"
    "I wish there were more books by this author"
    Overall

    Martin Clark is an excellent writer who really develops his characters. This was a book that I designed my day around, so that I could listen while doing tasks. The plot seemed simple at first, but develops into quite a convoluted, complex plot.

    The reader was very good, and since Audible doesn't have any other books by this author, I will search for books read by Ed Sala. He has such a good pace to his narration and his voice is soothing and fades into the background as the story unfolds.

    All in all, a very enjoyable read!
