    "An okay read"

    The storyline is quite interesting enough. I got a bit miffed with Annana's character though - there's something annoying about a character that persistently asks stupid questions and does really stupid things, runs around screaming when something happens and acts like a petulant child.
    She does redeem herself with bravery and the occasional bout of intelligence though....all in all, an okay story and a very good performance.
    couldn't make up my mind whether it should have been a teen story or a young adults novel though........

    Story
    "Cassandra Rose Clarke's Enthralling Tale"

    While many of the ingredients in Ms. Clarke's story aren't particularly novel, such as a young lady fleeing from an arranged marriage, having to throw her lot in with an apparent bad guy and being chased across the globe by true evil, she weaves them together and binds them into a tale that is both original and enthralling.

    As I often do, I switch between the Kindle and the Audible version. Tania Rodrigues really nails the narration. She deftly jumps between Ananna and her erstwhile assassin, Naji. Pacing and annunciation are perfect even while she vocally portrays the drama of the various situations the characters inhabit. This is the first book Ms. Rodrigues narrates that I've heard; she's first rate. (As of this post, Assassin's Curse seems no longer available on Audible. I hope that's rectified soon.)

    "One of my favorite stories."


    The story is not super complex but it has a nice past to it. This is my third time listening to it and enjoy as much as the first two time.

    "Enjoyable listen!"

    I've been wanting to read this for a while! great narration. I was glad when I found it on Audible. It went quickly. I wish it had a little more action, but I'm looking forward to the next book!

    Story
    "Lovely fantasy world at a gentle pace"
    If you could sum up The Assassin's Curse in three words, what would they be?

    Light, young fantasy


    What did you like best about this story?

    It has an enchanting flow that keeps one reading despite the story line being relatively uncomplicated and the characters easy to predict


    What three words best describe Tania Rodrigues’s performance?

    Measured, slightly flat


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, it was one I could easily pick up and put down


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely need to be prepared to buy the second in the duology

    "A flare of Arabian Night... The modern way."
    Where does The Assassin's Curse rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found this book enjoyable. Indeed you may wont to be some what of a younger listener or like the saga approach to books.
    I did found it well written and narrated and a time pleaser (the books I listens to are mostly to keep my mind at a pace whilst I illustrate other books).
