    Sharon Shinn returns with a new novel set in the Twelve Houses world, where a troubled Warrior Rider named Wen faces her greatest challenge in the last place she ever expected: behind the walls of a great family estate known as Fortune, where Wen has been hired to guard the young heiress. Once there, she will find that fate has other plans for her.

    I am an avid fan of Sharon Shinn, reading everything she writes. I am thrilled to see that some of her work has finally been produced for audio. I only hope that her novels of Samaria receive the same excellent treatment.
    If you are yearning for some quality escapist, fantasy storytelling/ romance I highly recommend reading and/or listening to all of her novels. It is best to do The Twelve Houses in order.

    About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster.

    A says: "Fantasy, with a touch of romance."

    Overall

    Disappointing..the narrator did not enliven this tale.Unoriginal characters with a trite and predictable plot. I had hopes it would improve but it did not. For fantasy and romance stick with Sharon Shinn!

    Thirty-eight year old Cassandra is lost, alone, and grieving. Her much loved grandmother, Nell, has just died and Cassandra, her life already shaken by a tragic accident 10 years ago, feels like she has lost everything known and dear to her.

    avid reader says: "Hours of enjoyable, fun listening"
    "Engaging"
    Overall

    I look for audiobooks to help me endure walking on the treadmill...this one had me going for longer than I usually do...did not want to stop the story.
    Therefore I give it 4 stars for reasons of great storytelling and good exercise.
