Lara has only one thought for her husband on their wedding day: I will bring your kingdom to its knees. A princess trained from childhood to be a lethal spy, Lara knows that the Bridge Kingdom represents both legendary evil - and legendary promise. The only route through a storm-ravaged world, the Bridge Kingdom controls all trade and travel between lands, allowing its ruler to enrich himself and deprive his enemies, including Lara’s homeland. So when she is sent as a bride under the guise of fulfilling a treaty of peace, Lara is prepared to do whatever it takes....

Great story teller with a unique spin at the end to pull everything together.

I enjoyed the narrator’s voice, yet the first word of several sentences are cut off. Usually one can figure out in context who or what was said, but sometimes names were lost.

Brilliant story and characters you come to think are friends along the journey! I haven’t read something so captivating in years. Mare Barrow rises from the ashes to captivate another part of her life. I highly recommend this entire series. Eloquently written and I could envision the story clearly as it went on, not wanting it to end. It is one of those that stays with you for awhile after it is complete.

I don’t understand why the need for the sounds effects. It made it painful to listen to at times, the baby crying, someone being out of breath, and the need to laugh through the story almost made me stop listening, but I am glad I didn’t. The story was a fun listen and with the help of different narrators for the next books it was an enjoyable read.

This was a great series. I was hesitant to listen to the second book only because the first narrator made it harsh to listen to the story at times, but is was a strong beginning and it hooked me. The second and third narrators did the story justice and made it exciting to listen too!

I would recommend the other books, but this narrator was slow, emotionless, horrible with girl voice transitions.
