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.
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.
I wish the story had been longer. I almost did finish it in one sitting.
Excellent story, excellent performance. I hope this author and narrator pair up again to bring more stories like these to us.
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.
