Publisher's Summary

A fast-paced fantasy prequel in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, whose gripping conclusion, A Shattered Empire, released September 13th, 2016.

Ten years before A Crucible of Souls...

In the bustling capital city of the Mahruse Empire, Felicienne Shyrise spends her days as a talented investigator, taking on stolen goods and missing person cases and the occasional murder the city guard are too incompetent - or too lazy - to resolve.

During the nights she hones her skills playing Dominion, a board game almost as complicated as life itself. She dreams of making a name for herself and becoming the richest woman in the Empire.

But when she's roped into a murky investigation by a First Adjudicator to the immortal Emperor himself, her life is thrown into disarray. Will this be the perfect opportunity to showcase her skills and make valuable connections, or will her future now be in the hands of political powers that can never be denied?

Working against her will, and afraid of the consequences of refusing the commission, she uncovers evidence that points to an attempt on the Emperor's life. Felicienne rapidly finds herself a target and must use her considerable wits to uncover the plot of an unseen enemy who always seems to be one step ahead of the game.

    "an interesting story"

    it was a good introduction to the series, I liked that it was entertaining and deep in some manners, it was pretty cool actually.

    the story was pretty well done, a little politic warfare here, death, intrigue and interesting heroes and heroines all well packed in a fantasy action based world.

    "Pleasantly surprised!"

    I wasn't too sure what to think of this book at first. But I was so entertained by this world Mitchell Hogan has created that I ended up purchasing the entire series! There are parts that drag on and the stories in the story can get a bit long winded, but overall, each time I finished a book, I couldn't wait to start the next one. I would recommend this book to all my friends and family. There's plenty of action, excitement and drama to keep you wondering what's going to happen next!

    "A little too obvious"

    While I liked the world in which the story took place, I could not help but find the plot a little slow and its development to be a little to obvious. The main revelation in the story was not a surprise and the mystery was not much of a mystery since it was clear who was the antagonist since about the middle of the book.
    I'm still going to give the rest of the series a try, but overall I must admit to being a little disappointed with this one.

    "a wonderful tale"
    Any additional comments?

    I liked the detective angle, something we see more in steampunk or contemporary. the dominion game intrigued me no end, sounded much like three dimensional chess. one annoyance, i disliked the lead character female voice, but not enough to take away from the story. That said, the narrator, when speaking 3rd person was AMAZING.

    "Overall very good, after a rough beginning"

    The first few scenes abruptly switched, with time lapses between them until the main story started, and then there were no more gaps. It was as if there were two different writing styles, or as if Hogan couldn't be bothered with details in the beginning. I wish hew had either skipped those early scenes, since he obviously didn't think they were important, or else took the time to flesh them out.

    After that rough beginning, though, it was a satisfying story, and I liked learning more about Felice.

    "Great Listen"

    So glad to have found this new series. A little confused as the main character in this story is not the main character in the first book of the series proper.

    "I'm in love with this character"

    OK I am ready for trilogy prequel. I am absorbed with Felis and her team. I'm in love with her work, ambition and morals. The writing is observant and thrilling. I'll take 3rds..

    "Enjoyable Overall."

    The characters were enjoyable and the storyline entertaining. I would have to say the greatest disappointment being the predictability of the identity of the antagonist, while the protagonist couldn't figure it out. Overall it was enjoyable, though.

    Story
    "took awhile, but"

    I really got into it towards the end and then was bummed it was over. It was just a prequel, so it may be bedt for those familiar with the series already.

    The narrator was really good and did a surprisingly good female voice.

    I will definitely check out the next book in the series

    Story
    "Felicienne Revealed"

    At the time of writing this is free so I was certainly never going to have any complaints about it. It is actually an interesting piece of character background for one of the main characters in the series and for that reason alone is interesting. Consistency with the main storyline is reasonable though somehow at this time she is considerably more talented at Dominion to suit the plot.

    In itself it's also a decent short story with the same narrator so if you are enjoying the Sorcery Ascendant series and would like a little more of Felicienne then this should do the trick.

    It's a real bonus of the modern reading platforms that it is now so much easier for writers to publish such "extras" so bravo to Mitchell Hogan and of course Audible for making this one happen.
