    Story
    "Surprisingly enjoyable, wanted more"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really enjoyed the main character in this story. She was strong, self-assured, and clever. There were levels to her, and, in the end, it is just nice to see stronger female leads emerge in stories, as there are far too few of them around.


    Have you listened to any of Angela Lin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have never listened to Angela Lin's narration before, but I certainly wouldn't mind listening to more of her work. She certainly brought the story to life with her performance.


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

    I wish the story had been longer. I almost did finish it in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent story, excellent performance. I hope this author and narrator pair up again to bring more stories like these to us.

    "Simply put... Entertaining!!
    "

    it is rare these days that 1 book novels can be developed and end so well. Sanderson is doing a great job of just that. He did it in Elantris too!

    Different voices for different characters was a little overdone. A very interesting story but it doesn't feel like a whole lot happened.

    "Brilliant and creative"

    What an imagination. A story so simple yet so detailed and beautifully narrated. A magical forger/artist re-creates the soul of the emperor in a fantasy full of political machinations. Amazingly wrought.

    What did you love best about The Emperor's Soul?

    Absolutely incredible voice actor. Probably the best I've heard so far. She was soothing, the voices were different, and perfectly fit the characters. Will be looking out for more by her.
