The Princess of Dhagabad: (The Spirits of the Ancient Sands) | [Anna Kashina]

The Princess of Dhagabad: (The Spirits of the Ancient Sands)

When, on the day of her age-coming, the princess opens a mysterious bronze bottle - a gift from her grandmother - she has no idea that she is about to unleash a power older than the world itself. Worse, she is not prepared for the bearer of this power to be a handsome man whose intense gray eyes pierce her very soul. Hasan, her new slave, is immeasurably wiser and stronger than anyone she has ever heard of, and he is now hers to command - if she can handle him, that is.

Publisher's Summary

When, on the day of her age-coming, the princess opens a mysterious bronze bottle - a gift from her grandmother - she has no idea that she is about to unleash a power older than the world itself. Worse, she is not prepared for the bearer of this power to be a handsome man whose intense gray eyes pierce her very soul. Hasan, her new slave, is immeasurably wiser and stronger than anyone she has ever heard of, and he is now hers to command - if she can handle him, that is.

Sensuous and delightfully intelligent, The Princess of Dhagabad is the first audiobook in a trilogy by a talented new author.

    "Love the story, but needs a new narrator"

    Princess of Dhagabad is one of my favorite books, and so I was delighted to finally - FINALLY - find it on Audible. The story tells the tale of a young princess, unnamed until the very end, and the genie in the bottle given to her by her grandmother. In this story, genies are created by their thirst for eternal knowledge, not power or magic. The genie and the princess form a friendship that will change both of their lives.

    I really do love this book. That being said, this audiobook desperately needs a new narrator. At times it feels like your mother, reading you a story at bedtime, stumbling over words and rushing the pacing. There are noticeable pauses before every word that is new to the narrator - most noticeably character names - that a more professional narrator would have had down pat before recording a book. Also, the "accent" seems very off. This sounds like a British grandmother, while the story takes place in a very Middle Eastern country.

    Overall, while I do love this book, I only it gave it a 3 star rating due completely to the narration. I hope one day a new version will be released with a better narrator.
