    "Great story"
    Would you listen to The Emperor's Soul again? Why?

    I love the concept of forging a soul for the basis of a story. There was good character development for the main characters.

    "Great book, great performance!"

    Short yet complex story with unexpected character development. The resolution had a few unexpected twists and turns but was satisfying and reasonably complete

    "Such a beautiful story"

    The story and narration were so well done, despite being somewhat short, it left me so satisfied that any extension to the story would be redundant and drag on instead. Having said that, I would love to hear more of Shai's other adventures and any references to any masterpieces she may have left behind.

    "Whirlwind"

    It's a beautiful whirlwind of emotion and implication. Marvelous story, that explores the ethics of change.

    "A uniquely great tale"

    A unique story well told with a great reader. Despite its length the characters are well developed and you come to really understand them and empathize.

    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!
