    Imriel de la Courcel's birth parents are history's most reviled traitors, but his adoptive parents, the Comtesse Phedre and the warrior-priest Joscelin, are Terre d'Ange's greatest champions. Stolen, tortured, and enslaved as a young boy, Imriel is now a Prince of the Blood; third in line for the throne in a land that revels in art, beauty and desire. It is a court steeped in deeply laid conspiracies - and there are many who would see the young prince dead.

    What made the experience of listening to Kushiel's Scion the most enjoyable?

    I love this series. I really enjoy the plot and intrigue and characters. If I hadn't read this book before listening to it I wouldn't have liked it I don't think and all because of the narration done by Vance.


    What didn’t you like about Simon Vance’s performance?

    Simon Vance doesn't do this author justice at all. After listening to this story from a woman's point of view over the last 3 books it is natural to find some adjustments going to a male narration, but he can't pronounce half the names, titles and places correct and his inflections for each character are totally bazar. Having a lot of trouble getting through this book. Wish he would have stayed closer to the other narrations.
