    When Shamur Uskevren, the matriarch of one of Sembia's oldest and most powerful merchant families, is tricked by an angry wizard into an assassination attempt on her own husband, her family is thrown into turmoil. Once the truth is discovered, she and her husband must struggle to save their family and stop the sorcerer. But in her anger, she has forgotten one thing: in the world of intrigue and deception, of shadows and lies that is Sembia, nothing is ever what it seems.

    Good story, average narration

    Byers writes a good story, but the narrator needs to study unfamiliar words. Her characterizations were good, but mispronounced some names and some w..Show More »

    Talbot Uskevren, the second son of one of Selgaunt's most powerful families, fights a deadly battle within himself. Like most men of his station, Talbot spends his days honing his sword fighting skills, and unlike others, practicing the art of acting. Now, Talbot will put both of these talents to the test when a rival House comes looking for blood. The only way for Talbot to survive against the Black Brotherhood is to let the inner wolf loose, and the only way for him to live in Selgaunt's society is to keep the wolf chained.

    Good story although not exactly in line

    Not much to do with the family as a whole but a decent story none the less. Good listen overall.

    Larajin, the unacknowledged daughter of Thamalon Uskevren and a half-elf, finds herself embroiled in a bitter war between elves and humans. In an effort to bring peace to both Sembia and the Dalelands, Larajin must confront the twin brother she doesn't know and save a half-brother whose fate hangs in the balance.

    Good story bad narrator

    Really hate the way this lady reads the book. Very mechanical and poor annunciation. I like the other one better.

    An exciting series, especially for readers new to the Forgotten Realms! Thazienne Uskevren, the only legitimate daughter of the wealthy Uskevren family, has suffered blow after blow to her body and spirit.

There the shifting sands hide an old foe, who holds the key to Tazi's salvation - or the doom of Sembia.

    Bad story with underwhelming narration

    The only reason I finished this was it's placement as the second to last novel in the series. The author seems to lack a basic understanding of the m..Show More »
