    The ruling Asharites of Al-Rassan have come from the desert sands, but over centuries, seduced by the sensuous pleasures of their new land, their stern piety has eroded. The Asharite empire has splintered into decadent city-states led by warring petty kings. King Almalik of Cartada is on the ascendancy, aided always by his friend and advisor, the notorious Ammar ibn Khairan - poet, diplomat, soldier - until a summer afternoon of savage brutality changes their relationship forever.

    Kat Hooper says: "Lots of drama"
    "Not as good as expected"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I couldn't enjoy the story as much because the narration was not consistent. There are sections where it seemed some sentences had been inserted later on. The mood, tone and pitch of the voice thus didn't match.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator didn't maintain consistency of delivery with the main characters. At times, I couldn't tell who was who.
